I thought it was for rednecks"


    I was speechless.

    5.0's, gtos's, camaros, etc. Laugh at my lowered 1.8 i4 until I kick their asses because they don't know how to navigate their boats on concrete.

    Edit: maybe I should specify I'm talking about going around corners? Of course these things slaughter me in a straight line.

    This is every single non-car person after they tell me to find them a car for a few thousand (2-4K) dollars and i send them some that i think are a good deal.

    "those are all too old/too high of mileage, im looking for something like 2009-up with less than 50k miles"

    uhhh, nobody sells almost new cars for $2-4k unless theyre wrecked or in a flood you idiots

    People that have never seen a car with a turbo timer

    "Are you just going to leave your car and lights going?"

    "Nah it'll turn off"

    "OH MY GOD HOW DID YOU DO THAT?"

    Every. Time.

    I clarified. I realize I wasn't very specific. In a straight line, ill lose to just about anything. But when it comes to cornering, the cars I mentioned are like boats, minus the 5.0. But the only 5.0 on campus is driven by a guy who doesn't know how to drive and I slaughter him on our little course every time.

    I've actually been curious about turbo timers. Is it basically just a timer on the engine that lets the engine run and the turbo cool and then shut off by itself?

    Them: "why do you want another set of wheels?"
    Me: "why do you need more than one style of shirt?"
    Them: "because it would be boring wearing the same thing all the time."
    Me: "there you go."

    I like to throw it right back at people. Haha.

    "How do you even drive that thing??"

    Carefully.

    "How do you go over speed bumps??"

    I don't.


    Or my favorite is when people think theyre car is better just because its newer or less miles...

    "What year is your car? 93? Yeahhh, mines an '07.."

    And?

    "Well mines only got 90 thowwwww thoughh!"

    ANNND? Mines got 200k and it doesnt look that hurt..

    Them: "Your bumper is going to fall off"
    Me: "I doubt it, I'm not even that low"
    Them: "Well you should raise it up to make sure that won't happen"
    Me: "I want to go lower actually"
    Them: "You're an idiot"

    One of my friends told me the other day "When I'm with other people, and I see steep driveways, I tell them you couldn't make it up that"

    "Man, you are always fixing that thing. I'm glad I don't own one."

    Yeah, I'm glad you don't own one either.

    "I really want one of these."

    No, trust me, you don't.

    I **** when people ask why i lowered my car. Or why i "stanced" it like stance is a verb. "but cause i felt like it" is the only suitable answer i can come up with.

    Just tell them that it's a style much like clothing. People make some pretty stupid compromises just to look the way they want, so what's so different about doing a car up the same way? It usually persuades people to accept the style instead of judging it as a stupid waste of money.


    Not really car guys, but the kids in my neighborhood like to make car sounds like mine when I drive by, it's super funny because my car is running rich and pops a lot when its cold and they try to make the same noise.


    The expression when the BOV releases off next to a car with the windows down is fucking priceless.

    This^

    I get asked this all the time, "Isn't it expensive to maintain?" "I bet it breaks all the time."
    No just don't trash it.

    I own 2 BMW's.
    "OOOH someone's earning the big bucks!" Not really I'm an apprentice. Old BMW's are pretty cheap.
