Default Modified exhaust thread reply

I could not find a way to respond to the modified exhaust thread, so I had to start a new one.

Several points
What exhaust systems have you upgaded to? Anyone using the COBB system? If so how does it compare to the others in terms of noise?

If the judge/cops were smart, they would also figure out that some modifications also screw with the emissions. If they made you get an emissions test, that could cause even more headaches. I forget, how often do we need to get our emissions checked in Colorado?

How loud are your systems? Do you pride yourselves on shaking the windows of local residents? In other words are the modifications purely for performance, or is there some showmanship involved as well?

I don't mean to flame anyone. My questions are simply to try to get a better understanding, especially because if/when I get a WRX I will probably think about some modifications.

Mark

Let me know if you get the Denver news stations/trouble shooters involved. If a lot of us called in the same time period, it might raise more of a red flag for the cause.

My last post in the closed thread linked you to BOTH other threads on this same issue - we don't need three threads on the subject to stay open.

Here is a copy of the links again - please repost this in one of the two that you think are more helpful:

"Since this is in General Forum at http://www.i-club.com/forums/showth...threadid=67136 and there is a new post about it here http://www.i-club.com/forums/showth...threadid=68027 I am closing this old one."

I now will leave this open since the general forum post was closed due to trolls...

hey people since it was closed due to trolls what do you think about my idea..or theory??
i was wondering how they could prove in court that at the time of the stop and ticket issued.. how can they prove that its louder than stock at the time of the stop? he had no db meter... but he did say that since he could "see it was modified" thats all he needed" ????? with out a db reading to prove at the time of the stop it was louder than stock they cant prove it right?? BUT!!!! its the cops word against mine...... and i have been reading that they will take a cops word over a inquery as to how he determined it was louder than stock with a db meter.....
Brat
hopfully the trolls dont venture into the mountains. eh.

That's what I meant in the other thread when I said the law and enforcement is unconsitutionally vague. It is left up to the subjective "opinion" of the occifer, like "I saw you speeding, so I don't need radar".

Where are the online lawyers when you need one?

Default any lawyers here?

thats a important part of my ticket.. his opinion that it was louder than stock with out knowing what a stock rs sounds like besides what he beleives is stock.... just like yousaid larry he says he saw me speeding so he needs no radar.. no i dont think so. or at least thats not how it shoud be. he should need a db reading at the time of the stop to prove that i was indeed louder than stock.. not to mention i seem to "piss people off when i drive acar like this" seems the officers opinion has more sway than a citizen who abides by the law.. there are bad cops througout this state. and because they are taken more seriously than the citizen the citizen gets the shaft......

confirmed by a police officer ..... going to meet up with him in person to see his opinion as a human not a tool. on my exhaust. told him about the profiling issue he agreed with me there is no way for me to prove thats the case. and it is true a cops word is better than a citizens word with no police record at all>??? free country my A$$ cant even add a pipe because you like the way it looks. simply because it adds some sound to the car..... this is supreme bs.... someone buy my damn monitor please.. i need to get this crap out of my hair asap before i go crazy!! its driving me nuts. his opinion over my want for simple proof of the car beeing loud at the time of the stop... yeah sure. you were speeding but i dont need the radar to ticket you for it.... (cartman voice!!!! really loud) sunuva BITCH!!
Brat

Angry

how without can one prove one has been profiled when a cops word is taken into consideration more than a citizen? and if profiling is illlegal how can they call people of my look or demografic "rickey racers"???? and pull us over because of this profiling when there would be no way to prove it because a cop could say we swerved or we have " modified exhaust"??!?!?!?!
