Good evening!
So people from the inspection said I shouldn't do it now, because my car would reprove. Fog lamps were broken, the sportive exhaust pipe would be an issue and the spare tire was not good (actually I've a new tire on the trunk, but I didn't realize it wasn't in the wheel, but instead a bald one)
Now I'm running against time, already changed the exhaust which made the car much more silent, I bought the fog lamps (which I think is ridiculous since they are not mandatory, but if you have them installed they should work. Bureaucracy at its best..) but I need to get some wiring since the current one is Xenon, so I can't even solder the wires because the end is too thick (think that's an issue)
The spare tire is the least concern, since I can borrow one for the inspection and sort it out later. Though I already have it figured out, just need to trade the spare rim I've which is a 14' for a 13' and install the new tire that is in the trunk there
I also had an unpleasant surprise coming back from the inspection. My shift lever came completely loose on the road, and I couldn't shift any gear. So I had to stop (luckily it happened in a good place). It was stuck in 1st or 2nd, so I had to shift the gear under the hood (all those transmission videos paid off), I pushed the car to a gas station, started contacting the mechanic that worked on the transmission. He was about to send a tow truck when I laid in the floor and started messing
I realized the gear rod disconnected from a sphere, and I could get it back there so I could drive back home, but I've to buy a new gear rod lock so I can drive in peace. It's a cheap repair, but it really scared me off and it could be worse if I was in a place that I couldn't stop at

@BobCross brrr, definitively not nice. We have on average -3°C in the night and some positive degrees (in C) during the day. Most of the times it is nice
@IanC Oh, good luck then

@Martin Thanks, getting a bit exhausted of doing those things in a rush because of the timeline to change the car documents
Not only it's tiring, but doing things in a rush gets more expensive :/
