Not sure why people are worried about Fast 6. Ever since 3 the cars have stayed relatively mild, and Tokyo drift is forgiven cause well, have you seen the stuff they like there?

How about we all just worry about our own cars.

I could link to half the cars in the wheel subsection, but choosing the worst would mean looking at threads I do not wish to see again.

I get the whole "to each their own philosophy, and I'm the last person to criticize other peoples mistakes since I have certainly made my fair share. Seriously though, we have become a society that has become so nice that it is deemed innapropriate to call a spade a spade.

I often say that taste is highly subjective and fads come and go but I once saw a pic of a firestorm fr-s that had Ferrari badges all over it. On this forum. I believe. If we can label that guy a complete retard, where do we draw the line and who is the person(s) that gets to decide that line?

No real point here.... just something to think about.

Any aftermarket HID kit.

Why would you install a 50 light kit on a 25k car when you have OE solutions available? You can get OEM EDM, JDM, AUDM, USDM, etc.. This car being spread across three different brands offers a wide range of swappable parts.

I just don't understand. The light throw is always awful and usually covers less ground than an OE H1. These kits are on all of the cars in my area. They will blind as you pass them from the front and when they come up from the rear.

I'm amused by this posting because every time I see a posting about re-badging the Scion with the Toyoto badge I have always thought to myself (up until now); "hell man, if you're going to fake it go all the way and put the prancing horse on there"!!

Couldn't agree with you more, I constantly have people coming into my shop wanting an HID kit on their car that has housings for regular bulbs and I have to explain to them that although it may make the road bright as day for them, they are blinding everyone else and being that asshat that appears to always have his high beams on.

If you want HIDs, go about it the correct way and get proper housings.

hate it when people have HIDs with reflectors... if youre gonna get HIDs, get some projectors and position them properly. this goes for a lot of people with trucks
