It is pretty loud. You can't even drive anywhere without getting attention. If it's loud to the point where you can't even drive the car, I think it's better to switch to a quieter system.
i can drive the car if i want... i choose not to go through tires, mess up my front lip, and chancing curb rashing the wheels. I curb rashed one Neez wheel because i decided to go for a joyride rather than just getting stuff done in my beater and i paid the price. So let me make it clear that i choose not to drive the car... the exhaust is not necessarily forcing me NOT to drive it.

Just some comments about some of the people who "stance" their car. I didn't want to make it sound like I'm a hater so I deleted the comments.
well let me ask... what's your opinion on people who stance their car? sounds like you don't like it.

I don't mind stanced cars. Sometimes it's too extreme for me, but some examples are really nice. My problem has a lot to do with the mentality of some of the people who stance their cars and their generally negative attitudes toward everybody else in the car world.

from what i've noticed among my friends... the reason they have that attitude is cause apparently the same attitude was conveyed upon them by other enthusiasts. Everyone wants a piece of the scene, problem is people in one type of crowd don't like another style. While I, on the other hand, try to give props for creativity as long as it's done in good taste. Putting a wooden wing on a mustang is NOT in good taste. Putting a VTEC sticker on a Toyota is NOT in good taste.

If you wanna roll pink wheels on a blurple car... then do your thang. Thats what you like. If you wanna sport a fully JDM Integra, do your thang... If you're a muscle car head, do your thang... but don't spew a bunch of negative things about someone personal taste. that just my opinion. take it as you will.

I respect you for your choice to be not so flashy. Mod away friend!

yeah sounds like a full oil change. does it say service and have a pic of the car when you start it? usually its around 17k depends on how hard you push the car. i have to get mine done as well we should go together. lol

Believe it or not, I like heavily modded cars. I prefer function over form so I will always be in favor of performance parts vs parts that will just look the car look nice, but I can appreciate a nice show car.

I did. I know it needs more oil, but I got a call the other day (automated message) from the dealership saying that my car is due for service (probably a rough guess given the miles) so I might as well take it in to make sure that everything is ok.
