    What about if the vibrations actually caused structural damage to a house, can you claim on their car insurance, and keep your house no claims?
     
  3. Because it sounded nice, and was said to make them go a bit faster (although personally I think that was a 2CV club myth; I certainly never noticed much difference). It did sound nice though, especially on the overrun.

    If young male drivers didn't kill and maim so often while showing off then I might be slightly more charitable towards their 'exuberance'.

    Well, didn't we all have loud music.....eh..eh.... I didn't have a fast car, and only reasonable tunes in my car as my cash went on the bikes as a youngster.... but what the hell, so long as they aren't driving like an idiot...that's fine...

    My factory standard system in my car would actually embarrass some of the kids systems, but hey.....my system sounds good at low volumes too.... no it's not a BMW - they are RUBBISH

    No, it is supported by the evidence, as well you know.

    If one of those cars blew you an ear drum, or loosened a filling, can you claim it on their insurance?

    There is a point where youthful exuberance becomes nuisance and then anti-social behaviour. Playing music so loud that you are rattling the windows and doors in other peoples property well steps over the line. If you don't agree Andy please PM me your address and I'll arrange for a few of the boys to congregate outside your place one night! ;)

    I have a feeling you'd soon change your tune then.

    It would be virtually impossible to prove, and its likely that the driver would have a nose bleed long before you suffered any sort of damage.

    Lower frequencies are heard further way than higher ones. You as a bystander could hear them even if the drivers couldn't due to their proximity to the sound source in the boot

    Wikkid man ;)

    I think the boombox boys are hoping that their girlfriends will just give in and request that "if you turn that bloody racket off you can feck me on the back seat now !"
