jawn, here is my take. if you want that exhaust, run it for as long as you can. If you get pulled over and harrased just say the last part fell off, take the ticket, go home, put just the muffler part of another exhaust on the car and fix it so it looks like it works. then just take it off/on. I have YET to get pulled over for my exhaust on my RSX, and you know its probably 110dB or so. *crosses fingers*. I doubt you would get in trouble, honestly.
