Possible you've caught a diesel spill. ...

Re: Confirmation Big Brother is Watching

Looking at this, the technical challenge of replicating the standardised test in a real world driving scenario is going to be it's undoing. There are so many variables. More likely, the loudest vehicles will be pulled in for testing. Thing is, if you keep your stock exhaust system, you get the autom...

Re: Confirmation Big Brother is Watching

Loud pipes save lives. Ride a quiet bike and you are a target for every half asleep bellend out there. Given that noise output would need to be measured at a set distance and under very specific conditions, I reckon there could be difficulty enforcing this.
