Yep. Don't be an idiot and go WOT when around cops. I've the darkest tint ever and I just roll down my windows whenever I see a cop. No problem.

Doesn't matter how you drive or look. I got pulled over, specifically for my exhaust, inside the LAX airport loop about a month ago. Was asked to pop open my hood and he looked under my car. He didn't ticket me since everything was legal. I was driving normally and I look normal. My exhaust is on the quiet side as well. Felt like I went back in time to 1998.

Another member go ticketed for aftermarket headers in the same area. The cop told him "the reason why I pulled you over is because your car looks like a race car". He was driving slow and his car is not flashy at all. Visually, it's just lowered with aftermarket wheels and exhaust.

If you put on an aftermarket exhaust, there's always a chance you will get pulled over. But, in the 11 years of driving fixed up rice rockets in SoCal, I've never been ticketed for an aftermarket exhaust (knock on wood).

Are you sure you look normal?

Just have relatives that live in Arizona lol jk. That works for me only because I don't really have a permanent address in California yet (that college student life) and my mom lives in Arizona, which is why I keep the Zona plates.

for most part of LA/OC as long as you dont drive like an idiot, most cops will look but pass. LAX Airport PD however will pull you over if they SEE modifications. And then just recently, local PD and Sheriffs around the valley area will pull you over due to all the dumbasses that are street racing.

It's been in the news that the different police agencys are looking to discourage street racing by hassling and writing tickets for whatever, to anybody that even looks like they may be in a modified street racing car. So, yes, I think fix-it tickets are going to be on the upswing for awhile. It's BS, but what can we do. Drive slow, take your stickers off, take that wing off, etc. lol. My other car I've had since 2004, dark tint, no front license plate, no ticket so far... knock on wood. Same with the fr-s.

Some area's hassle for noise, have to be careful when I ride the Harley! lol. The Fr-s has the TRD exhaust and intake so I'm legal and smog compliant too! Very happy with those mods.

That sounds like me!

As some of the guys have said before, it will depend on your setup and how you drive. I used to get pulled over years ago for exhaust tickets because of my driving habits.

Now I've got a Supra with a large HKS muffler and a catback exhaust on the FR-S but havent been pulled over driving through cities like Anaheim hills, Brea and Irvine. We'll see what happens in the coming months with the recent changes.
