drove the bimmer around town today just checkin temps and a little part throttle boostin to check the boost and A/F readings and got poped by the popo for a modified exhaust:banghead:. I think the reason he puled me over was cause i have to kind of play with the rpm's from a dead stop in order to get the car rolling cause of my fx700 clutch super grabby anyway is there a way around this bullshit.cause im sure as fuck not gonna change my exhaust

Register your shit in Rio Rancho! Or any other county really.

Nope you can still get popped for driving in albuquerque with a modified exhaust. I have had four of those tickets.

Judge chewed me out because i gave them a receipt showing that i fixed the exhaust. Then i got another one in the same car a while later. You got to be careful because it's a steep punishment if the judge wants to give you the full punishment which CAN include jail time.

That's weird! I got pulled over for my exhaust in Alb, and didn't get a ticket for it. Just got one for not having my insurance card on me.

ive owned plenty of loud cars with loud exhaust and this is the first time ive been issued a ticket maybe it was just a fluke and a cop with a hard on, besides when it happened it was downtown echoing between buildings all give the receipt thing a try

Jail time for a fucking EXHAUST? That's off the scale retarded. There isn't a word for how stupid that is.

The jail time isn't for the exhaust. It is for contempt of court, if not perjury for lying under oath in court. I would not reccommend lying in court, but thats just me.

Good old Marty has a hard on for loud cars especially downtown ABQ.

I avoid that area at all costs.

It's fucking bullshit. Godamn Harleys are louder then fuck and they are revving their shit all up and down Central.

It wouldn't even matter if it was somewhat quiet. He could be pulled over for it being large just because it's not stock. Dumb fucking law. If they are going to make a law that says a car can not be louder than XX dB then they need to get a freaking decibel meter for Christ's sake!

x1,000,000. That pisses me off. Everyone tells me , "Oh you better watch it you'll get a ticket for that loud exhaust." But they don't say shit when a harley rumbles by and you can't hear a conversation.

Disclaimer: I like Harley's and bikes lol, but the exhaust double standard is bullshit.
