articles on yahoo are always wrong.. they didnt add the civics, EVO's, RSX because they know it would piss us off. They (pigs), want to keep this a secret so we wont be on a look out for cops, as a result, more tickets for them. pretty sneaky of them...

and how the **** is a subaru outback more of a cop magnet than a STI or WRX???

That's exactly what I was thinking
I should feel offended that Civic is not in there lol, but not something that I'm proud of lol

The thing I didn't see in that article though, is do they take into account how many total cars of each make are on the road or not? Either way, our car is still a cop magnet, regardless of this article.

Hell yeah, I get pulled over at least twice a month. Tints and exhaust, but thats the price you pay for it. Last week I was pulled over and let go though.

So far it hasn't been a cop magnet but every ricer in the world that rolls up behind me starts reving at me like they need to prove something against a stock SI.

screw those poll listings. Whenever a cop see's a modified car or a car of import tuner status, they'll keep a keen eye on them a lot more then just the regular econo boxes

I hope you know that this has far, far, far, far more to do with you being pulled over than any other possible factor.

Not seeing how that makes the Civic or Civic Si a cop magnet. I'd imagine that the tint and exhaust were cop magnets, not the car.

This is my experience. The only people who even care are boy racers. My old non-M BMW sedan (e36 325i) got far more attention from police than my Si. BMW, owned 4 years, got 2 tickets. Civic Si, owned 2 years, 0 tickets thus far. Both cars white with legal tint.

HA tC's I could see that being true, my friend gets pulled over and screwed way more than I have been, plus they are numerous for the younger crowd.
One thing is they dont count the number of cars actually on the road. Jaguars are rare as hell because the new ones suck.
