Why is it so hard to find a C.A.R.B legal cold air intake in California? I've looked on a few shops online that have stores in my area yet all the ones that are legal are unavailable. Any suggestions?

I think most people go with the illegal route. I dont know of anyone who has a CARB legal intake on their gti in cali, but i know a lot of people with intakes

i got my spectre p5 cone air filter from autozone for $40. it's awesome. no sticker necessary.

as long as you aren't straight-piped, you shouldn't have a problem with cops at all. I've never been pulled over actually, and both my headlights and tail lights are tinted black aha.

EDIT: Dude, you live in pleasanton. you're right down the freeway from me bro. 680 never has cops! just don't fly through 880 during commute and you'll be fine.

I was reading somewhere that it had to have the CARB badge inscribed into the pipe. I'm in no hurry I can wait a couple months for the CARB order to come out so I don't have to switch it later down the road. I'm getting a Magnaflow cat-back put on today so that will feed my need to upgrade for now.
