Well to start with they would bring out the fine tooth comb on your car. Tinted side windows or tail lights , tread depth, exhaust volume, front plate etc. Then the violation they originally pulled over could " expand " . " I pulled you over for doing 55 in a 40 zone ( true ) and by the way you crossed the double yellow as well ( mabey ) " . They could also take their time doing the paperwork and make it as uncomfortable as possible. Remember it is your word against theirs and in court guess who wins . I've been driving and being pulled over for over 40 years and my best advice is take it like a man and keep a light attitude or it will only be worse. I figure anytime I get pulled over it is only SMALL fraction of the times I should have

Are the CHP that friendly with all modded appearing cars, or just the ones from CA?
If they only profile the CA cars, I won't rethink my vacation plans....

As long as you're not speeding you should be fine. They love to hide at the top of on ramps or behind pillars of bridges over the freeway and catch you as you speed by. As long as you're not speeding you should be fine.

I've never been pulled over and my Mini is slammed and pretty loud.

I just added this little tool to my arsenal . It will be programmed with both the Sheriff and CHP frequencies.

I want to get one of those in the UK. I know you can get into trouble if you have the police frequencies programed into it. I wonder if they can tell in any way that someone is listening.

They can not tell if anyone is listening . The only way you would get in trouble is to have it chattering away while you were pulled over . Even then I do not know it if is breaking the law as such.

Just having it tuned in or the frequency programed in is breaking the law. Its the same as being caught listening to it.

As I was coming down from a long run at Angeles Crest which was quite nice .New harness which i love ( makes u feel like u put a couple hundred bux into susp. parts , but really you have alot more controle over the car ) No Pigs around , which i guess was the opposite for this driver , got arrested and they towed this pretty thing away. The hood was popped as u could see in one pic so i guess they do take **** serious now. Sux really bad though knowing that your car is gone for 30 days , especially a classic !!!
