as i have mentioned before im so to SOCAL so im bangin it out a bit with a hooked silver ISF dropped/wheels/ defuser/lip etc didnt seem to have much in way of performance mods as he didnt pull from me or me from him for that matter on the 210 this afternoon.the silver F pulls back and i see a motorcycle cop roll up from behind and it looked like he stopped the other F and then came chasing me... I drop in front of a couple rigs, and see this cop shoot past me doin about 100+. so my question is are there alot of getting stopped because of exterior mods here. thought I heard something years ago about bumper heights here but that was it. seems the cop targeted the other F pretty hard. mine is all stock by the way just a k&n air filter and tint. just curious.

Most cops love fast cars, and they read about them just like we do, so they know what's going on.

My last car, Subaru WRX STi was targeted a lot, like the community was a bunch of high profiled criminals running around. Many STi's got stopped for no reason at all, and since most people don't know the law, they allowed their cars to be searched.

The ISF is in a different league than the STi, but some cops will be looking for it.

I also notice you live in LA, which is the whole Street Racing scene started, so you should expect to draw a lot more attention to yourself, not much you can do about it.

Avoiding the attention has to do with knowledge, tactics and equipment. I'm not going to elaborate further on that in public, for obvious reasons.

Cheers,

I'm not a cop, although I tried to become one back in my late 20's, but I'll tell you this.

I agree... especially one as unique as our F's, it's easy to be picked out of the crowd.. I just graduated an academy, and I can tell you one thing for sure, if a cop really 'wants' to pull you over, they'll find some kind of 'PC' to stop... most people really don't know this, but there's a Vehicle code violation for just about everything.... everything from ride height, front license plate, to the Garmin GPS ppl like to put in the center of their dash *26708(12) vc*.. so my advise.... don't be stupid.. you drive an F.. we're supposed to be at higher level than Ricers...
