I would have to agree, the same crowd that shows up at a car meet, does a burnout in their Honda civic, and starts a fight before getting kicked out. But I don't think that's all Honda Civic drivers. I think the 1-2 drivers that stand out do not represent the majority.
Agreed. My comment was definitely overgeneralizing the crowd but they are the majority. Just expressing my thoughts but please carry on everyone.

In my experience, the people who complain about loud cars are the same people who mow their lawn at 7am on a Saturday morning...
I disagree. the people with loud cars ARE the people who mow their lawn at 7am because they're looking for some sort of meaning in their life and need attention and will demand it even if it's not given to them. they don't give a shit about other people but desperately want the approval of strangers at the same time.

That's the common denominator: Not caring about anyone but yourself.
The guy who mows his lawn before 8am, or the asshole across the street from me and to the right who uses his leaf blower when he comes home every night after work about 6:30 - even in the dark!
Share the same thing in common with the kid who tears through the neighborhood way above the speed limit, with his pops and bangs resonating for blocks.
They only think of themselves.
I'll extend that to idea that their parents didn't teach them any better.

I grew up on a dead and street less than two hundred yards long.
Throughout my life, there were always little kids on that block, (of which I was one at one time) a quiet tree lined block.
When I became a teenager, and friends came to pick me up in their cars blasting Judas Priest, Zeppelin, Sabbath etc. through their Jensen triaxles - my mom told me to tell them to drive slow down the block because there were often kids playing in the street, or who could run out between parked cars.
She told me to tell them to lower the music too.
You know what?
She was right. I couldn't argue with her, because she was right and I knew it.
Even 17 year old me realized that, and even my jerkoff friends (a term of endearment we still use for each other) knew she was right, and respected her.

Thanks!
Respect for others, and the desire to have peace and quiet respected shouldn't be something that's exclusive to grouchy old men and "Karen's."

They're usually the same crowd from my experience. Poppin off like they're not driving a shit box 4 banger (usually)
Had a similar issue with a 370Z treating apartment parking like a racetrack. Walked down one day while his hood was open, took pictures of his plates in front of him, and started walking away. He asked what was up, I told him this is not a racetrack, his behavior is not appreciated, and I was collecting the information to go with a video for an ongoing police report. Never saw the dude parked on my end of the lot again. Never had a problem at 2am ever again.

Is your problem with crackle tunes, or some vocal minority of people that don't know how to behave regardless of the social situation?

So I got a crackle tune

Stratified allows me to turn on and off the pops and bangs (it has more gurgle and less bangs than everyone else too) does any other tuning company do the same? I turn it on rarely, it would drive me nuts if it was on all the time.

To be fair, he did buy a 370Z to live out FF Tokyo Drift parking garage fantasies. The drifting up and down ramps, not buying knock-off Nikes and iPods, I assume
