Default BAIC..... do the popo's hassle you?

I'm moving to the BAIC in Sept 09 and was wondering if the police hassle ya'll for having modded cars. I do have my full stock exhaust, but am currently stage 2. Do I need to switch back? My TBE isn't loud by anymeans, but I don't want to get any tickets as soon as I get there. Also, my catback has a fartcan muffler, will that be a problem? I'm planning on getting a place in either Vacaville or Fairfield, Ca. Please school me on the Popo's!

It is no worse here than any where else (from what you hear). Cops will profile all day long. I am full stage 2 and I was pulled over by CSUMB by a CHP because of a "clear cover on my license plate that is a no go in California". He obviously thought I was some dip ***** college kid straight out of the fast and furious and was hunting for something more serious than a license plate cover or exhaust violation. To top it off, I forgot to put my insurance card and registration back in the car after going to the track the day before. As soon as he figured out that I wasn't some dip ***** kid, he let me go even though he could have given me a ticket. The moral of the story = cops profile and if you fit that profile, you will get a ticket/ hard time. It sucks, but that is the way the world is. Besides most Cops have no idea about our cars, so if you get a ticket, put the stock stuff back on and fight it.
