LOL those are my thoughts exactly. Got pulled over for this a few years ago.

However, the only real defence you'd have is to say that your exhaust meets new vehicle noise standards, set out by Transport Canada (if that's in fact true). I was lucky and the exhaust I had did have that statement. Custom exhausts though... you might have more trouble :S

got nabbed on this aswell.

cruising in girly e30 convertible...I also have a custom exhaust on it, 2.5" from catback into a magnaflow muffler.
sounds good, but was loud-ish.

got pulled over, not ticked tho...just lost the magnaflow and put something reasonable on.

absolutely no difference in performance except i'm classier now.

Yep, I downgraded to a quiet muffler too. Too bad cause I really wanted a "HOLLYWOOD MUFFLER!!"



Cap't, I thought you were only allowed to get one trip permit these days.. how'd you score another?

Damn, that sucks.

The muffler law is way too arbitrary. It really comes down to the type of day the cop is having. Realistically 90% of muscle cars and bikes should be getting tickets for excessive noise. Although I'm glad they don't

capitaine34 I remember cruising behind you and the car staaank lol so maybe he smelled it? but also you could fight that it was an engine problem that was causing oil to get into the exhaust and not a problem with the exhaust itself .. maybe?
