mr hitchhiker,a few comments on your car, sir:-the paintjob is effeminate-the chrome wheels look out of place on a civic.-the lambo doors...belong to a lambo, not a civic-the front fender vents, what do they do?-the rear spoiler, what does it do?
Cant we just appreciate the works done to the car? Is it really that necessary that every modification we put on a car has to have an effect to its aerodynamics? Cant we just appreciate the car for its being? So what if there are Lambo doors on a Civic? I dont see anything wrong with it. As long as the car looks good, it does not really matter if it is aerodynamic or not. As long as it can turn heads, its alright with me.

1. oh yes, very manly but girly? aren't those contradicting? please decide, manly or womanly. you don't have to be polite, just honest. 2. so bling bling is sporty now. where in racing have you seen chrome wheels? playstation maybe? last i checked it was with the hiphop community and not on racetracks.3. it's ok i have seen worse...lambo doors on a ferrari. perhaps on a japanese economy car it's not so bad then? hehe.4-5. oh well. that's you.like i said, what you do to your car reflects who you are.as i have read once a long time ago in another forum, very classic quote: "money cannot buy taste."
