Default So an anonymous neighbor thinks my STI is too loud...

So I get this letter in my mailbox today from a neighbor that doesn't appreciate the loud noise my TurboXS exhaust makes. I get it that it is louder than most vehicles out there but the fact they couldn't even come talk to me face to face is what really grinds my gears. I'm a personable guy and would have rather had tell me in person so I could know who I offended and offer my apology and try to resolve it between us. What do you think?


When I got home today I seen my neighbor across the street outside and asked her if my car was too loud for her in the mornings. She admitted that she wrote the note and explained a little further that the worst part was when car first started up, and a couple days ago I came back a few minutes after I left because I forgot something and left it idle outside the garage.

I apologized for the past few days and last night I backed into my garage and started the car before opening the garage. Also drove as slowly down the neighborhood. She said this morning she didn't even notice and it was fine. So, looks like a good easy solution for both of us.

I'm glad I got this straightened out and feel better that both myself and neighbor have a solution. Last thought, she is one of the neighbors that my wife and I have rarely talked to, so I now see why she would have wrote a letter in the first place. They're more of a keep to themselves type and that's fine. I'm just glad it's solved.

Another update:

Ran into another neighbor across the street from me, asked if she thought my car was overly loud and she said no way, she loves it and it never disturbed her in the morning. Apologized anyways and said if there was ever a problem to feel free to let me know. She also said she got SEVERAL anonymous letters in the mail about matters which she didn't discuss with me. I guess the person writing these letters gets easily offended and I'm just going to try to be as neighborly as possible.
