I got popped by the 5-0 as soon as I came out of the shop sporting a new Greddy exhaust in my Civic. I asked why when it was a legally certified part. He said, because it's shiny. So he pops my hood and sees the Legal intake. He still sent me to court where the judge just threw out the case after paying a $10 admin fee but I had to take the day off.
California for you.
