Stancing has nothing to do with rice. You can have a perfectly looking stock e46 stanced/dropped/slammed/stretched. Rice is mostly adding stupid mods that don't belong or won't add performance to your car. As far as I know, stancing improves handling and aerodinamic and it makes the car look good which is the main point. Umad?

i hope the fanatics who have that silly "illest" sticker on their car immediately rip it off after seeing that abortion of a car that has the same sticker

good to know who you are in company with, and who you refuse to be in company with

you have got to be kidding me

so stretching the sidewalls of a tire like they are a goddamn elastic beyond what i would consider safe, and running a -4 degree camber for the sole purpose of fitting your 17x11 tire with a 235 tire will add performance how?

come on dude.... face it, stance is the rice of 2010+
body kits and wings were 2000+

same thing, different era.... in my opinion, stance is a little less tacky than rice, however when you start adding roof racks as a fashion statement and stuffed animals with "illest" stickers, guess what.... you just riced out your car, "german" style

Well it's a shame that people like that (that own cars like that) are free to just put whatever on their car, because illest was cool when it started... People ruin a lot of good things for people. It's kinda like how those rednecks wear the Ken Block/Monster products. The products aren't even cool, but they sure as hell made it obvious that it's not.

Again, people ruining a good thing. Stance is not some kind of trend... but people turned it into one.

no offense... i "kinda" agree with what you are saying, but bottom line is... regardless of the sticker, those are the people you are going to attract at some point down the line

stickers in general are just tacky... it pains me to not market this website with an e46f sticker considering how much i have gained from here, but even that sticker alone... i just can't do it

ruining a good thing? with all due respect, please show me a "stance" car that was a good thing...

from what I understand... the purpose of stance is to give your car an aggressive "stance" by squatting it down low with a retarded barely drivable drop, and then wide ass rims that clearly don't fit, but you make up for in skinny tires that look like they are screaming for dear life

if you want to show me a pic of a nice car with nice fitting rims, flush against the fender with a minimal stretch, by all means.... however, from my perspective, I don't think that is extreme enough to be "stance" after all the horrendous examples I have seen in the past

I looked at the whole car. Trust me it's a conversion s15.

rears don't look to bad, sorry but i'm not a fan of the front in the least bit... those poor tires look so damn silly

as long as you like it, i guess thats all that matters
