I pretty much have a stock STi only with an intake and today a cop pulls up right next to me at a stock light and tells me to pop open my hood. Well knowing that I had to obey the law I opened my hood and told him I had an intake. He told me to pull over to the next gas station and he write me up with having a loud exhaust (I have a stock exhaust), for having bald tires (i have a goddamn 06 with 18k miles), and no EO# for the intake.

The thing that pissed me off was that he told me to pop open my hood at a traffic light. (kind of unsafe if you know what i mean... what happens if it turns green?)

watch out stock sti's in cali they are coming after your car

Damn, I'm glad I don't live in California. I've blasted by cops here with my cobb exhaust and typhoon intake and they'd never think to waste time pulling me over because of my exhaust.

Hell, I've even shown cops my car/engine at one point on purpose, granted I know the guy, but his partner was like "oh I see you got one of those fart cans" I say, Yeah, so? It's a cat-back, it's legal. They smiled. Showed em my motor, their eyes got all big lol. "what's all that piping? You have it chromed?" All in all they were cool. I think CA cops are dinks over it because it's part of their culture out there......oh and the law. It gives them a reason to stop you.

Same here in East Texas they never pull us over for loud exhaust, I first heard of this and thought it was a joke or perhaps a horrible dream of sorts.

Wtf??? Dude take this to court.. First of all he cant tell you to "pop your hood" without probable cause "which he did not have!". Secondly he then writes you up for exhaust? Take it to court and fight it. If your exhaust is quieter than 95 Db at 3 meters you are good to go....

Yup, do this and all it will cost the OP is a little hassle but at least you'll have the satisfaction.

you hate cops until you need them to save your life, or your family member's. it's just a ticket, given to you by an ignorant cop. FYI there are a lot of stupid people out there, whether they are cops or not.
