Anyone know where I can get a Exhaust Silencer in the Bay Area? I got pulled over last night for my exhaust. Damn Cop. I am guessing that getting the silencer would be an easy way for a fix or is there another way?? Hope any of you can help me out. Thanks.
well if you did your exhuast the "right" way you would have bought a catback exhuast system that bolted in place of your stock one. Smart people keep there stock exhuast for stuff like this. So heres what you do.... put your stock back on, and wait a while to put your after market back on. Heres the problem sounds like you went for just sound with a muffler, in which case it has to be cut off and you have to buy a new one stock one and weld it back on.
haha i didn't get a fart pipe. I got a dtm style exhaust. I never got a fixing ticket before. I got pulled over before this but the cop didn't give me a ticket. I don't want to go through the trouble of having to chop off the exhaust and welding back on the stock one. Hmm can't I just unbold the whole exhaust pipes and bolt on a stock muffler from a 325i? Or anyone know where I can get an silencer? Also maybe I can take out the k&n intake and put back the stock air box to lower the sound?

The air box would help some, I'm sure. If you had straight tips, you could try those slide in baffles you see for motorcycle pipes. Probably the best bet would be a stock system. Plenty of them on Ebay for not much money, if you didn't save the one you had. Good luck with this one.

ok update. some guy told me to stick some metal pot and pan scrubbers in my exhaust cuz he tried it with his rice rocket pipes and it worked. didn't work to well for mines. lowered the sound a bit but still kind of loud. hmm on the other forum i am on some guy suggested having resantors welded on?? Would that actually help? If it does I probably drop by my local muffler shop and ask them how much it cost for two resanators. I need a resanator for each pipe right?
