How do I get my neighbors to be more considerate without causing friction?

They are always loud between midnight and 2. Their car's muffler in roaring loud and they think it sounds good. They have clutter all over their yard and the HOA won't do anything about it or charge them a fine. They mooch (which may be the worst thing).

I'm ready to just flip out on them but worry about the war it may start between our two families. Knowing them, if I complained about it, they would just do it more. Any ideas on how I can get them to recognize what they're doing and stop it?
