My motivation to go sleeper is to keep my car from being broken into or stolen.


The ricey mods advertise your ride as a target for free **** to thieves.

For me, I want it to appear to car crooks (including the automotive savvy ones), even after peering into the side windows, that this is just another Miata. I want them to subliminally think, "Nothing to steal here. Better go break into that Civic over there with the shiny FMIC instead."

After all what does it take to break into our cars? A pair of scissors!

You guys don't live in a state where a cop can say "show up at an inspection station in two days or we crush your car - and it all better be 100% factory".

Best reason for sleeperness ever.

Dude, seriously? I didn't know this. I'd like to know more but I don't know where to start search-wise... what are the laws called? Is it smog-centric? Or is specific to modification? And the 100% factory part blows ***... does this apply even if you have mods that have a CARB exemption?

A cop who thinks you have mods which may not be legal (exempt mods are ok, but they still might send you in to PROVE they are installed correctly and documented) can send you to a smog station. And don't think just obeying the law is enough - they can pull you over for suspision of being modded (tail pipe, etc) and there are random, dyno+visual under hood inspections to make sure you didn't slip through the cracks.

It's asenine.

Well its also called Due Process, and last time I checked the government has absolutely no ******* right to take from you anything which you purchased and own legally. Hence my "cold dead hand" glock photograph. Just like the cop who told me once he'll impound my car and remove my factory car stereo for noise ordinance. Told him to try it, and I'd own everything that was his.

Stolen property is one thing, but if its something you legally purchased.. They can eat a big fattie ****.

That little exchange just shows how people on the West coast (in general) have come to terms with being told what to do by their government, while in the midwest and some other parts of the country there is still a bit of antipathy.

I will hold off on political commentary from here on out - but I agree that what's yours is yours, its what you do with it that makes you a criminal.
