Fart pipes on the back of these rice cars are annoying me lately because not only is it bloody annoying hearing the cars race around the street, but the damn **** boxes set my alarm off.

Is the max legal noise level something like 90dB? There is one WRX that has a big fat fart muffler on the back that is incredibly loud. The loudest I have heard, it's rediculous. Surely these damn things are illegal? Everyone seems to have them stuck on the back of their cars even though most of them are gutless cars. Does anyone here have mates that have had a canary from the cops for noise pollution?

I've had a mate FINED for noise pollution, but not defected. He was revving his car.

To be defected it has to be over 90db when STATIONARY (or at idle) according to SA law atleast, but alot of these fart cannons go over that anyway... But they dont seem to attract the defects our commodores do...

Damn. At idle? So they can be vibrating the crap out of your windows on the house whilst in motion and it's acceptable?

Thanks for the info.

I f***ing hate POS cars with exhausts louder, then some V8s.

My mate had an Auto N/A VL with an the exhaust was far too loud for it and made it sound like absolute ****.

Ahhh. V8's. They can be excused entirely. The sound of a true V8 no matter the sound level is alright. After all, they are V8's.

I'm talking about tiny little weeny **** box 1.8 litre cars with massive fart pipes on the back which are about 1/4 the size of their motor or more.

/end rant.

Its 86 and on basicly any car wif a cat is 90 and pre 86 is 95 i think i got done in mildura in my 308 hq tunner it went 106 db and to get the canary off i had to go to swan hill 2 hours up the road as that was the closest recignised epa station i was lucky enough not to get the $500 fines they were handing out with the canerys on the nite. :)
