California new "modified exhaust" laws


Recommended Posts

I wonder if this will have an impact on Evora 400's. I also wonder if LOTUS will need to fit different exhausts to California sold cars. California seems to be the one state in the US that is out on its own re US regs.

So dumb. Your exhaust is too loud and anti social so we're going to hound you and threaten you because of a small number of idiots who road race. Your gun is so loud its beautiful and despite the

All US cars still have the 3rd Cat because of California emissions laws, this 3rd Cat makes our exhaust systems much quieter than ROW cars.

Yes priorities are different. In Germany we are not allowed to carry guns and loud exhausts … or change anything on the car unless it has a KBA homologation.
But still we may drive as fast as we can on certain motorway areas. But since the world´s climatic change has to be stopped (at least in Germany alone) at all costs we will lose that and even more soon.

Your gun is so loud its beautiful and despite the fact thousands of our citizens are shot dead every year by a small number of idiots we ain't gonna do a thing.

I guess priorities are different.

Dumb is drawing (inaccurate) analogies and conclusions based on partial understandings of complex issues. I’m sure you’d appreciate my well-informed thoughts on Brexit?

Happy for you to share your views on Brexit. How many people killed by people using guns versus people inhaling car fumes in California? Just to help me being more informed.
