    my wrx vs. my exhaust + cop(illinois)

    i just got a ticket because my exhaust is too loud/modified. damn, one day before leaving for greece. does such a ticket screw up my supervisions? its not a moving violation so i doubt it. will it increase insurance?

    I'm from Maryland, here its not to big of a deal. You have have the exhaust inspected (cost $10). But moddifying your exhaust is illiagle so you must change it back to stock. Just dont let it happen alot. I've gotten three now, the inspector told me the DMV may send me a $500 fine if they figure out I got three. And that next time they may pull my tags. Luckly its been by three diff cops so they may not notice. Oh yeah and the last two times I got it inspected I had a catless up-pipe on it and they didn't say anything. And it shouldn't affect your insurance.

    I got one on my Firehawk last year in WoodDale. It's not a moving violation, and won't affect your insurance, or the status of your drivers license (unless you don't pay it).

    Just keep your eyes peeled for cops anytime you're gonna be on the gas, and keep the revs as low as you can if Officer Friendly is nearby.

    My Invidia DP is going on today, so I'll be full catless with the Borla exhaust. I'm thinking I'll be a tad loud myself here in a few hours.

    By the way, Kalo Taxidi ellinopaido. I'm stuck in the US all summer, sigh...

    The trouble will really depend on what they have the time and energy to do. Technically swapping out an exhaust in a newer car is illegal, and removing a catalyst is a federal no-no. If they are
    inclined to push they can create all sorts of problems.

    But they usually aren't - and in a large city everyone has other stuff to do I'm sure (crime comes to mind). Your best bet is to deal with the "fix it" ticket - which no doubt this will only amount to, no more - and figure out a way to not get caught at it again since it's not worth the hassle. Maybe put on enough stuff to pass by the fix and then either stay that way or figure out something that'll not draw as much attention - and definitely replace *everything* if you want to be extra-safe come state inspection time, if you have one.

    its not a fix it ticket. anyhow, my father is completely pissed and he will go to court for me on the date of the court. he is taking over my car and going to buy me a new one instead that is not modified. he is going to put a muffler on it too, one that looks stock. i took her out again today and i feel really sad that im going to lose her, but at least its still going to be in the family. now, im contemplating over the evo or r32. BOTH WILL NOT BE MODIFIED... exept chip if applicable hehe!

    I just got pulled over this week too, but with a warning. I hope the Chicago Suburbs aren't trying to crack down on us.

    Dude, I was driving on 290 and there was a sign that said "1800 speeding tickets in 2 weeks" "SLOW DOWN"


    I'd say they're trying to crack down on speeders a bit.
