OK, what's going on around here?

It seems that in Milton Keynes, more and more so, bus drivers are stealing the exhaust systems from Nova's, Peugeots and the like, and what's more replacing them with the exhaust from their buses?!

I want to know how they get away with this?!

I mean, exhausts that big make it really hard for these cars to go over speed ramps, and also they must weigh them down something cronic as they often appear to be just about 1" form the floor.

This must be stopped, bus drivers face it, you've got big exhausts, and that's just a fact you have to live with!

:rolleyes:

Re: Bus Exhausts

Exhaust envy Paul ? :)

Which attribute concerns you most - their pendulous size or their girth ? :D :D :D

I laughed openly the other day as I was pointing out to a mate a real 'Cannon' that was sat on the back of a knackered 1.4 E reg escort. The guy who owned it unfortunately saw me ridiculing it and I could tell he was upset. WHY DO IT! Everyone knows its a crap car,

I found it highly amusing that I was caught obviously ridiculing his 'beast of an exhaust' and he didnt say a word

Polishing a turd is the expression that springs to mind

Cheered me up

I thought every council estate boy racer knew that a baked bean tin on the end of the exhaust pipe makes the car go faster/pull more birds? Shame on you for not knowing that basic fact of motoring life, Paul.

What's really sad is the number of mainstream manufacturers who engage in a bit of this - maybe not with baked bean tins, but there are plenty of warm and hot-ish hatches with a bit of fake trim on the end of the exhaust to make it look a bit bigger.

It's far worse in the United States...

Whatever people are doing in bad taste in the UK, you can bet they're doing bigger, badder and uglier in the US. I mean, take a look at this. Even the worst Boy Racers in the UK would find this gaudy.

Hey NOAHE,
I found a photo of a fart-pipe from Canada. Fueled by Tuborg beer, fat back sandwiches and jelly donuts!:D
You gotta love it.

p.s. I come from a long line of Canucks;)

Dad? Dad?! Oh my god, get back inside. The horror... The horror...

Ok, that's bad. At the least, I can point out my picture wasn't Photoshopped, it was genuine. That pic is genuinely horrible.

P.S. It it fair to say that this thread has gone WAY off topic?

"Stop. It's getting silly."

Let's hope the MINI isn't popular with the "low rider" crowd or you are liable to see one with hydraulics, Lakes pipes, "flipper" hubcaps, tuck and roll upholstery and fuzzy dice hanging from the mirror. :D
