I totally agree but to make a car that loud you would have to de cat and take out the res one would assume or just have a straight through pipe which would fail on emissions hence the MOT...To be fair some cars are pretty obnoxiously loud for no good reason. If they can wake you up by driving past your house, they are too loud.
MOTs only check if your car is safe, being a bit loud isnt really a safety issue (unless its REALLY loud), but it is a public order issue. Its not like its not impossible to sound good without being deafening.
I've farted louder than 70db.I wonder if my stock R is louder than 70db with full beans lol
It's a case of not being able to please everyone. My neighbour, for annonyimity, lets just call him ********. His exhaust on his stock 1.2 Corsa has been blowing for about 2 years now (no idea where he gets his mot) and wakes me up at 5:30 every morning (fair enough if he has to go to work at that time). So I'd be a hypocrete to say I want his exhaust to be silent and mine to be louder. Maybe they should do something like London and have zones where you have to pay to go if you break a certain db to keep boy racers out the city.To be fair some cars are pretty obnoxiously loud for no good reason.

Sorry @Jimbobcook had some nasty people playing with my gmail account so had to delete it and therefore had to set up a new user profile.I think it's discrimination on a hobby, we don't put camera's on traffic lights for anyone who doesn't have Speed blue paint...
If it passes an MOT then what more can we do...
