wouldn't you be annoyed if you're at home enjoying time with your family when some 370Z or some classic mustang with an equally loud exhaust, M3 drivers would prob think "how obnoxious/rice", but "regular" ppl see BMW's with loud exhaust and think the same thing, "how obnoxious". please don't add to the stereotype blaring ur exhaust around, its just a 3 series

This is some of the worst advice I've ever heard. Especially for someone that lives in CA. They're already looking for him. If he ignores the ticket it will become a warrant and getting arrested over an exhaust he KNEW didn't meet CA's noise limit laws is just plain stupid.

If it's legal, take it to a referee station and have it measured. If it passes, keep the certificate in your glove box. If not, well, you knew that going in and you can't really bitch about it.

The whole situation is rough.
In CA an officer can follow and cite you if they believe the exhaust is outside the limits. At that point you have to go to a referee station and have it measured. Nothing the cop did was illegal or even suspicious.

Then there's the removal of the secondary cats which is another illegal move in CA. The car wouldn't even pass the visual portion of the smog check.

Really, the OP has NOTHING to complain about here.

It's a fix it ticket. No big deal. And the cop dropped his other ticket because the car is so loud it could hardly be ignored. Sure he's been looking for you--you and anyone else that sticks out in a crowd. (Number on rule of not getting picked off is not to stand out....)

If this thing can meet noise regs for CA, just go to the referee station (as QS pointed out) and get it signed off. If not, fix it, and get it signed off. No different than a fix it for tint, or front plates, or whatever.

Do you have any speeding tickets? If no than what are the chances of a police officer pulling you over if you normally speed over 100 mph on the road... The chances are that it is another M3 driver that is driving like crazy...
3. Ignore the fix it ticket...
i do have one in the last month for 40 in a 25...and is profiling illegal??
40 in a 25 I don't agree with or understand. 100 in a 65 I don't agree with but at least I can understand it.

Wow, there is some really really bad advice on here. lol. I like the guy who said its profiling...really. Let me think, there have been NUMEROUS complaints to the police about a loud black BMW. He then is standing outside giving a ticket as a LOUD BLACK BMW drives by..Yeah thats profiling. lol. Come on. As for "they cant follow you". They will follow you where ever they so feel fit. Its their jurisdiction they will go where ever when ever they want. If you recall, in the other thread, I did call the neighbors idiots for writing the notes. However, the cop was just doing his duty. Keeping the peace as many of complained.

I don't care one lick about a loud exhaust (legal or not), but I would respectfully ask that you please do not speed in a residential area. It's dangerous and simply not worth it. If you feel the need for speed take it to a deserted backroad.

Thank you.

Actually, he selling -> http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=465720

OP, getting pulled over for doing something illegal isn't harassment - it's called breaking the law and getting caught. Get your exhaust to a legal noise level, and drive 25mph through your neighborhood. If you are still getting flack from the neighbors and cops, then you have a case for harassment and could look at exploring legal options. Until you are legal though, you've got no leg to stand on. As things stand you are at douche status and realistically you kind of are terrorizing the neighborhood.

I never understand people speeding in residential areas, shopping mall parking lots or apartment/business complex parking lots...

1. Wrong, cops can follow you.
2. It's hearsay.

A cops job is to be nosy and get into people's business. He could have made your day much worse. If he wanted to, he could have towed your car declaring it as an unsafe vehicle. Cops have all the power in that moment when they pull you over. Best thing to do is just to hear what they have to say and let it be.

A cop doesn't need probable cause, reasonable doubt, etc to follow you. He can follow you for whatever reason he wants.

Good for OP for getting rid of the illegal exhaust. Those who think that ear-piercing loud shit is "cool" are penis-envying douchebags...
