Thumbs down Poorly "modified" cars



is it just me or is it getting sickening to see hondas with JUST exhausts?? they sound like crap and they arent any faster than with before the exhaust! Honda should just put exhausts on 75% of their cars out of the factory because 75% will have exhausts within 1 week of purchase. i am getting so annoyed with people getting a riceburner because of a movie.

Some people would rather not pay more for skirts when they are already putting down $600 for a type-r spoiler from the factory. I personally think its a nice spoiler, JDM looks are great

Because its noise polution! I don't mind noise when a fast car pulls away in front of me and hauls ass down the road, i like that! But making huge amouts of noise and goin absolutely nowhere is a little retarted if you ask me.

I just don't know how the people that drive these things aren't embarrassed about the bad sound they make. I know I was when i had a loud muffler, I had to change it immediately!

They just made it ilegal here in NZ.. although they went overboard. They didn't put a limit, they just made a law that if you fit a new exhaust system it can't be louder than the stock one.. which is kind of stupid as cars like say. the Ford XR6/XR8 and Holden Monaro are sooo much louder than any ricer car.

Im a hater of Hondas that have exhaust because an exhaust only helps if you have a turbo or supercharger and i doubt every car i see with an exhaust is a turbo. when i see a nicely modified honda i'll give it props and i've only seen one.

I don't really think what you said is correct, if it is then you might as well be a hater of half or more of the cars on this forum because I can say that the majority of the BMWs here are not turbocharged or supercharged..... and it doesn't only help if you have a turbo.. the fact is that it does add more horsepower and some people don't really care how much but it does add it and that 5 - 15 hp gain is still a gain

the factory USDM spoiler is something like 400 anyway. BTW I am by no means bashing it, it's a very nice spoiler BUT it's getting "played out"(i think you would consider every second car with a type r spoiler "played out" like i do)
