Emissions Testing Sticker Not Compulsory

Just in case anyone didn't know (i didn't till today)...

The sticker which shows the due date for your next Emissions Test (Abgaswartung) is not compulsory, you don't have to put one on your car.

I realised that my XJR didn't have the sticker, so I asked my mechanic who'd actually done the exhaust test & taken the car in for the MFK, and he told me it's not compulsory "nicht obligatorisch" to have the sticker, you only need to keep the paper in the car.

He told me that a lot of his clients don't want to put the sticker on thier cars, and in fact the Police at Zürich Airport are known to check cars in the carpark and issue fines if the sticker is out of date.

They can't issue the fine if there is no sticker. Obviously you need to keep the testing up to date...but that ugly sticker can go!
