How often do you do this. I do this every day I drive but I'm in a city. I drive by parked cars, hear an alarms start to go, look in the mirror and a car alarm is going ape **** because of my car

I had to check your location to reconfirm my assumptions. Yep, I assumed correctly.

Are you sixteen years old? My intuition says you are, since you care about your car being so obnoxious it sets off alarms.

I'll even take it a step further and give you a big ol' FU for thinking your cool because you drive a loud ass car that's slow. The 2008 wrx is known as being the worst wrx to buy. Have fun with your 230whp LOUDMC****INSLOWMOBILE.

I sincerely hope you're referring to the original post, and not the replies.

If you are referring to the replies, how, exactly, does one reply intelligently to the OP's post?

"Yo, i duz dat all da tyme, bro! Like my carz so f***ing loud, it wakes up dead peeples." (Best said while vigorously fist pumping the air.)

Some people just set their car alarms too sensitive. I've set a few off with my car, and it's just a stock 99 Forester. It's not loud at all. It get's windy around here, and several of the neighbor's car alarms can be tripped by the wind too.

When I drove a cab, transmitting on my 2 way radio would set off EVERY car alarm within 50 feet of me. Anyone have any idea why it did that?

You're an idiot. If you took the time to check, he's an OIF vet as well as a Firefighter. Congrats on sucking so hard. He also never once stated that his car was loud.

This is a good point. It's hard to be a military veteran AND a firefighter by age 16.

However, one could inference that the car in question is a loud car, or it wouldn't regularly set off car alarms as he drives by, so it's a reasonable assumption to think it's a loud car, perhaps with some sort of axle back or more exhaust system.

All that said, one can also reasonably assume with some level of confidence (UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE) that by living in NJ and having a loud car that some douchebaggery is afoot. This is by no means intended to be offensive, but in the court of douche, you are guilty until proven innocent (totally tongue in cheeck but kinda serious)

Veterans and firefighters are incapable of making bad threads?

Meh, I think InSpace was just having a bad day. He's not an idiot most of the time. I've set car alarms off a few times myself and always got a chuckle out of it because the knucklehead who's car it was had the alarm set far too sensitively. It's not so much how loud an exhaust is, it's how deep it is. Lower, deeper sound waves exert more pressure against overly sensitive alarms. Garbage trucks will do the same thing when passing the same cars.

Bunch of ignorant dickwads in this thread, so quick to incite a riot and fall in with the hater crowd.

Shut the **** up and read his post before making assumptions, calling names, thinking you're better than someone else.

He stated his car sets of car alarms. Not that he enjoys doing it, or that his car is loud, or that he does it purposefully, or that he bought the exhaust for this ****ing reason.

I swear grow the **** up NOSIAC, bunch of old ****ing ***** "sonny you make loud noises obviously are dangerous, ignorant ****ing teenager". Chances are you have any aftermarket catback and drive close enough to a car with an alarm, it's going off, especially in a city with buildings all around creating echo and keeping the sound in. Some alarms are even more sensitive. I have a Greddy Evo2 cat-back and its suppose to be one of the quieter ones, still sets off alarms when driving by cars in parking lots or just close enough to a car with a sensitive alarm.

He said he does it daily, and made a thread about. Obviously everyone is going to use COMMON SENSE and assume he does it and enjoys it.

And whom is NOSIAC? Clearly you're in the "hater" crowd on this one. Enjoy your flat brim hats and monster energy logo's.

Yeah maybe but still this is a systematic problem at NOASIC and frankly it's getting boring. it's suppose to be a community and this thread belongs in this forum that's why it's called "General". If there's nothing to contirbute then don't post just to troll it.

I didn't know common sense and assuming go hand in hand but I guess you know better. And pardon my spelling mistake of NASIOC, thank god you were there to troll it and prove my point.

People so angry. I'm 30 years old and just want to see if anyone else car does this. My exhaust is slightly louder than stock yet sets off alarms where I live. I In fact feel like an ass when it happens as do other subie owners with "stock" applications. Quit assuming every post put on here is by an immature kid when in fact it's just a person trying to make conversation. You poison these forums with your hostile and stupid replies to general convos being posted. Chill out

Calm down there superfreak, my STOCK exhaust on my EVO sets off car alarms. And my Borla cbe exhaust on my Subi would do it all the time, and that's not even a crazy loud exhaust.

Car alarms are sensitive to vibration caused by a lot of different exhausts, doesn't mean someone is an asshat for simply driving their car and it happens.

My stock WRX exhaust sets off alarms in garages, but mostly just chirps outside of one. Its pretty funny actually.
