i wouldnt say jdm fanboys. the site is probably filled up more with people that like clean cars that arent too flashy. cars that dont have neon lights everywhere, big time paint jobs or twenty billion buttons that do different things. its just a coincidence that the JDM theme fits it perfectly.

Re: My 99 civic showcar

^no you can spend a lot of money and still make it look generally like the manufacturer intended, just added a multitude of subtle changes.. props to the amount of work that went into it, but I prefer the clean look over the flashy/show look

hey im sorry man i dont wanna pick on you, but you worded it perfectly, and my question is .. WHY??, why would you spend perhaps 5K on your car, and have it look completely stock? when you could spend nothing and have it look almost IDENTICAL to the one that had 5k blown on it to make it made tyte JDM. Spending thousands of dollars on your car to make it super tyte JDM is a little silly IMO here, the only changes would be stuff like folding mirrors, side markers, subtle changed tails, and huge JDM logos (https://www.civicforums.com/forums/2...er-badge.html), lol.

Re: My 99 civic showcar

Dude it's just two sides of the coin.. would you rather spend money on as you put "stuff like folding mirrors, side markers, subtle changed tails" all of which are FUNCTIONAL to driving as opposed to flashy lights that don't do anything to help your driving and are simply meant for show.. as I said props to the OP'er who put a lot of time and effort into making car neat to look at, but I'm sorry I'd rather have one that's more functional DRIVING, as opposed to sitting in a car show..

i didnt say performance, i said mad tyte jdm looks.

and as for functional, how are folding mirrors any more functional than flashy things? or sidemarkers? those are pretty much meant to be flashy too, they are installed too low to serve as blind spot blinkers.

all im saying is that crap like an underglow kit is just as "functional" as a sidemarkers or JDM tails, None of this crap will help you with your driving, but it just bugs me when i see cars that have tonnes of work and $$ put into them and then hordes of posts after it pointing out its non jdm tyte flaws in it.

anyways /end rant, im done with this

it has nothing to do with things being JDM as much as it has to do with things being SUBTLE and SIMPLE, not flashy and tacky, reinforcing the bad rap imports already get.

in fact, i don't think I have one JDM part on my car.
