If we all were on KWs, or PSS9s with HRE, BBS, with superspriint exhausts, then we would be the looking damn near stock.

its what makes the world go around.
Very true, I do agree that everyone should customize their belongings according to their personalities. But, the point I'm trying to make here is that most of the people who indulge in these expensive tastes drive around with 20 inch rims and an exhaust that's dragging across the road, a busted windshield, failed inspection, no brakes, etc.

They are the ones who should be removed from the highways! The roads would be much safer without them and we can stop seeing quality vehicles go to waste.

Maybe I am, but it's something that has bothered me for a long time. If people could just take care of their vehicles BEFORE adding expensive equipment, it would do us all good.

If people could understand their vehicle first before doing anything to it that could also help.

im sure someone feels the same about your tastes, and there are people with very stock cars that do the same sh1t.

not everyone understand the concept of maintenance.

It's painfully obvious that not everyone understands the concept of maintenance. But it should become even more obvious that if your car runs like ****, or doesn't run at all, but you want to add some rims and a DVD system...maintenance should be your FIRST priority.

youre sterotyping.
a lot of people are used to japanese and domestic cars that dont require as much attention, some euro cars too. stock and modded.

Then there are people that just dont do sh1t but occassional oil changes, add gas and drive. and when the brakes grind they change em. Stock or modded, some people are just like that. No one is educating them, and some just get a new one when the warranty is up because they dont do jack except add gas and press gas pedal.

I'm not trying to stereotype because what I'm saying applies to EVERYONE. I'm just using the most common examples to make my point.

I will try to say this as generic and clearly as possible...

BEFORE YOU DO ANY KIND OF MODIFICATIONS TO YOUR VEHICLE, TAKE CARE OF THE BASIC'S FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe that should help everyone understand my perspective lol.

I figured that statement would be the best example because it is the most common based upon what I see every day.
