Well, we can only hope not.damn that is a sweet classic, one day mine will look like that.
Yeah, and you could probably still take him NA, he's got all that damn dynamat and audio equipment to lug around!Wonder if he could have swapped in a SR20DET for the same price???
True, that's my overall opinion though, aren't I entitled to that? Yeah, I used to be a dirty post whore, but now I typically only post when I have something usefull to contribute. This threard however is clearly one about opinions. Most cosmetic mods for classics suck IMHO. It might surprise you but I'm getting in on the Rota wheels group buy, despite that I'm 95% go and 5% show. But I hate my stock SE-R wheels, I'd rather have my 13" XE's wheels with the OEM hubcaps. No joke. Most people visually can't tell the difference between a 13" and a 14" rim anyways. I'm getting Rota's because they're lightweight. I figure the one thing I'm likely to do to dress up my car, (besides a reshoot in the far future) ought not undo all the things I do and plan to do, to make it faster. With Brian I don't know if his focused changed or what. His CAI certainly looks nice, but his JWT and ACT clutch nobody can see. They certainly don't make up for the added weight of his cosmetic and audio mods. But that's okay for him, he obviously doesn't drive the car very often, it's for show. His mileage certainly indicates this. I guess it's a difference in how people enjoy their things. I don't put furniture covers on my furniture, runners on my new carpet, and right away, I peel off plastic protective film that comes on TV remotes, cell phone displays, etc. I'd rather enjoy those things by using them, and that means wear and tear. You can't have your cake and eat it too, and I choose to eat it. This reminds me of the Lowrider magazines I used to read in high school. You'd have guys who gold plated and veloured every inch of their ride. Gold plated calipers and rotors, everything. Lexan valve covers with neons in them, all kinds of impractical shit. And like I said, it was cool to look at, and is the way some people enjoy that stuff. And as much as I thought I'd like to have that, I realized that that's all it'd be, something to have. Like a model car in a case. No touchy! You'll smudge the shiny finish. No thanks, not for me. But hey, that's just me and I'm no bigot, I know I'm no more right or wrong than anyone else. To each his own. But I don't have to agree with it.C'mon toolapcfan, I'm not hating, but you always say the same thing. I've read a lot of what you do in the forums, and you are a big help. You've helped me with my problems many times. But you always give a hint of hating the way people change the "appearance" of the our classics. I know you give props to Brian's car. He deserves it. And you know that ACT clutch will help a couple tenths of a second in 0-60 times.
