Sports cars automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

If you pay attention to the U.S. roads – it won’t be long until you notice a pattern - compact sedans, big clumsy pick-up trucks and SUVs driving one after another and literally flooding the streets. It seems to us that people increasingly opt for a daily commuter, a non-pretentious vehicle to take them from A to B without attracting any attention. But then, there’s us - the passionate petrolheads who desire to own a car that speaks out their personality; a car with a character. And then we roll our sleeves and get down to business, customizing it and adding that special twist that will grasp the attention of the passersby, while we’re cruising down the road. But be cautious as the Law prohibits most mods. Here is our top 7 most common mods that can get you in trouble !

"Seven typical mods that can get you in trouble with the LAW" 

Loud exhausts !

Do you really need to make all that noise, annoy your neighbors and attract the attention of the law enforcement officers? The thing is that your Subaru WRX doesn’t have to be ridiculously loud in order to have an exhaust system that works perfectly well. Skipping the big tail tubes will save you the trouble (and big fat fine) and actually give the rest of us some peace when walking down the street.
Of course, not everywhere the law is as straightforward as it should be, and especially if you carefully examine what are the local regulations in regards to the increased noise of your vehicle. If you’re enough lucky the police might not manage to prove that your car is louder than allowed. However, if they measure it – then your baby ride will be taken off the streets. In Kansas, for example, the muffler has to be less than 90 decibels loud from  a distance of 50 feet. It’s up to you to decide whether it’s worth the money and risks.

90 decibels max / measured from 50 feet
