He was getting pulled over for it all the time, that's why.

I hate loud exhausts but like the gains my N1 gives me at top end. Seeing as I don't race on the streets, I use my silencer every day and I don't recieve any negative attention from Police. It also shows police that I am making an attempt to quiet down my exhaust and make their job easier.

Get an APEX WS exhaust! 90% as good power as an N1 without ANY noise! Actually it is a barely audible low growl under 2k rpms, and after 2k you can't really hear it at all. I only hear engine noise - precisely the sound I want to hear. Also, the WS doesn't drone on the freeway, and the tip isn't overly huge, so it's not really a cop magnet. Plus, what is the cop gonna give you a ticket for anyway - the WS is way too quiet to be illegal. Just in case though - apex does offer a silencer for the WS also, but I can't actually imagine a case where that would be needed.

Ok this part sucks, I drive around with the silencer all the time, I never take it out, yet I still get harassed where the cop typically says something along the lines of "do you know why I pulled you over? For your modified exhaust. Do you know you're not allowed to have that? Your car's loud..." This is all with the freakin silencer in, BOTH times!!!! So yeah I'm through with exhausts for now until I get some more money...it sucks but there isn't anything I can do about it. Gotta love california...anyone want a slightly used TRM?

I'm really sorry to hear that Jiggly. Does everyone in Cali have to deal with that BS? Here in Chicago, I only have to deal with it in the suburbs, but in the city I'm ok, with or without the exhaust. Cops love pulling people over for tints on the front windows here. I ended up taking mine off, because I was tired of getting pulled over for, tints, exhaust, missing front license plate, illegal turn signals (mine are cleared out and I have hyper white bulbs), and whatever else the pigs could come up with instead of fighting real crimes. I feel your pain.
