Why do people have loud cars?

Why do people (especially guys who drive Civic's) put loud exhausts on their cars? Do you guys find loud cars annoying?

Updates:
Alright, thanks guys. :) I really wanted to see all of your opinions about loud exhausts. I, personally, love loud cars - especially Civic's. I love the sound of a 4 banger so much. <3 I wouldn't really call it "rice-y" if a person has a loud exhaust. Rice is when someone has a body kit, huge trunk wing, 12" subs, etc, like my Civic does. Also my civic is really quiet, considering the fact that it has an aftermarket catback exhaust. I don't do it for attention of others, either. :)

  • they're either ricers or enthusiasts. they dig the sound of an engine and its exhaust note. I can't NOT smile when I hear a Lamborghini pulling up, or a super sport inline 4 motorcycle.

    • im not lucky though, the cops here suck lol. suburban cops really got nothing better to do.

    • Wow, that's awesome. I always thought Bugatti's looked pretty normal-sized in photos, but I have yet to see one in real life. And damn, I heard the same thing about the police in Cali, and car modification laws as well. :(

  • A Civic is a slow car compared to many other cars anyway. I guess people just like the sound.

    • Yeah they definitely are slow. They're made to build. Speed isn't what makes a car fun. :)

    • Lol, it's amazing what such a small engine can accomplish. Bahaha! It doesn't surprise me that his Ford broke down, lol! I hate American cars even though I live in the usa. :( God, I'm sure that car was so packed. xD That's a perfect example of American vs. Japanese engineering.

    • Oh yeah well this Ford is an Australian Ford but yeah I know I have heard American cars give trouble (No offence). German cars are also terrible Audis are famous for gear boxes giving trouble, Volkswagens also give gear box trouble to I think. BMW, Audis and Volkswagens all are the worst in the world for engine failures. Yeah I know what your mean by the engineering in other counties cars compared to Japanese cars. Japanese cars are so good.

  • I enjoy load cars... but they are race cars. Street cars should not be overly load. Just because they are loud does not mean they are fast. Its silly. Ever hear a Porsche 911 S4? Its not loud because it has nothing to prove.

  • its all a street cred thing here in the uk but a lot won't do it because the insurers will substantally increase premiums , i don't like it loud but in reality you can end up with asbo (anti social behaviour order) here aswell for noise

    • Nope, not my reason. :) Maybe for some, though.

  • because some idiots enjoy the looks of people... even if they just look because you annoy them.

    • or really sick bastards :D depends on the point of view.

    • Bahaha, good point. xD

  • Personally, I do not like it and I could not understand why someone like it.

    • I don't understand why someone would want an aftermarket exhaust on an automatic transmission car (other than for performance reasons), but I love to hear manuals with loud exhausts because there's no better sound than when someone's shifting through gears. <3

  • Bc they want it

  • Its because they might think it's "badass" or something. I personally love car engines, but not the rusty kind :)

    • Aw :( I hate driving behind them when they're doing wheelies too. *cringe* It scares the crap outta me.

    • I agree :)!

  • Both my cars have broken exhausts and sound like they have "Sports Exhausts" on. It's so embarrassing :(

    • Hmmm well it makes it worse when a Civic is and never was designed to be a fast car.

    • @Averageusername pretty much, and they sound like lawn mower engines that are about to explode xD I hear a shit ton of em' around where I live sadly.

    • God I love my 4 bangers. I don't care if they're slow; it's not the speed that makes the car fun. :) And you're lucky for hearing lots of them around where you live. I wish I could hear more around here. :(

  • Nah it depends if you like cars... i love cars and everything about them especially the sound! Its a beautiful sound like music to me lol
