got pulled over

Pulled over in Burbank at midnight...
Cop: Pulled you over because your exhaust is modified. It is illegal to modify your exhaust.
Me: Huh?
Cop: Have a good night sir.

No ticket, or even a real warning! He heard the car revving in a parking lot with some friends after work. I think he was just checking the thing out!

It's like your hot milf boss calling you into her office. You get bitch slapped, but is it really a bad thing?

I got pulled over by NYPD somewhere in Brooklyn in evening... 2 officers just pulled over next to me and said,- How do you like the car?

.... and we started chatting about M3, they wanted to know everything... we chatted for a little while, they seemed to really like the M3... one of them said he had BMW 330... then they wished me good luck and good night and left... I forgot to tell them about m3post.com though

So, is it technically illegal to put on a different exhaust? I was under the assumption that it is when I got the Tubi, but then there are so many of us and other car drivers, including those coffee can civics, that do this sort of thing. Heaven forbid we want to make our cars look, perform, and sound better. I guess there wasn't enough gang activity last night to keep the Burbank police busy.

sorry, had to post up this picture . Anyway, where was this? I wish cops around here were that chill, you got lucky! and lol to the dick magnet comment totally true. I was filling up at the gas station the other day and some girl asked if my bumpers and exhaust were for sale at the BMW parts department xD (she drives a 128i, no clue if she was a troll or for reals ~_~)

Yes, in most states it is illegal if the sound is above 95db. Most cops cant prove this without measuring the sound but they sure can hassle you and ticket you if they please. Im sure most cases get thrown out though.

Some cars can be illegally too low as well.

^^^That's exactly what I was going to say. If it was illegal to modify your exhaust then what happens if it rusts through and falls off? Can't replace it because then it's modified so I guess you'd have to buy a new car??? And what about all the Harleys running around louder than ANY car I've ever heard? Ever seen a Harley rider pulled over for a loud exhaust?

a few weeks ago a cop gave me a ticket for producing excessive noise with an engine during a rapid acceleration.

bogus municipal rule, I'm definitively appealing that.

BTW, my car is completely stock, I would have loved to see his face with a full gintani race exhaust.

Wow, how could you even let him ticket you? You should have called a supervisor over immediately. Now you might have to take a day off work, spend your time, go to court, and all that jazz just to prove you have a completely stock car.

It's amazing how much of a reduction I've had in tickets ever since I started to be nice to cops, rather than confrontational.
