Modded supra or GTFO!

My problem with exotics is that most people that drive them are rich douchbags but if I could get one it would be either Lamborghini gallardo balboni edition (RWD) or a pagani zonda Italia edition

RWD OR GTFO!!!

LOVE the Morgan Aero 8.

Honestly, for me, it would totally depend on the cars involved. Modded 323 vs Ferrari? Ferrari. Modded E90 M3 vs. Ferrari? Tougher call, despite being two cars with entirely different purposes.

Going by your signature, I believe you did a 6 speed swap(I might not be correct). Wouldn't it be more easier for you if it came with 6 speed, lowered and with the wheels you currently have, just like that from the factory, wouldn't you buy it? Or would you rather buy an automatic, then put a 6 speed, lower it and put the wheels you like on it just to satisfy your mod hunger? Thats my point.

Just like buying a 323, then put a S54, then swap the rear end and everything to make it to an M(still it will not be an M from the factory). For me its too much time and work. If you have time and passion, nothing wrong with that. I never said the people who mod their cars are douche bags or dum.
My point is, I would keep the 323 and buy an M, and have two separate cars to do their respective jobs.

Good point here.



Also, for me, it could possibly depend on the class and feel of the car overall.
A modded Supra's interior is still the same


I feel like they tried to give it a jet fighter cockpit type of design for some reason. The car's power definitely warrants it, but...it's still literally all plastic.



These on the other hand, all well designed, extremely sporty, and practically dripping with luxury:

White GT2RS. I know there are Ferraris and Lambos that are faster, and I hate white cars, but something about a white Porsche makes me drool, and the GT2 is just amazing.

I would love an E46 M HPF 2.5 or a Gintani E92 M, but nothing like a Porsche.

I don't think Lambo makes a car that can keep up with a GT2RS. That thing is a street legal race car. I would love one also, but I think I would do it in that orange they have. I usually don't like "loud" colors, but the Porsche GT2/3 RS cars wear it well.

Modded car owners can be just as much of douches if not more. Have run into several supra owners who wanted to street race and act like jackasses on public roads.

Oops, my bad. I don't keep up with exotics as you can see. My point was just that I would take a GT2 over anything else, even faster things (Veyron). Haha yes, anything else in orange, no thanks, but a GT2, it is a solid option!

Thanks for the info

Also, you have to have very spikey hair to drive a modded car. My hair is too dry and un-spikey. If I ever have the money, I'll have to buy an exotic. The modded car guys won't let me into their club.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I would go stock car. When you mod a car there is always something to tweak or fix. Nothing is perfect and you are always looking to change something. I like accepting the stock car for what it is.

Also I would go with one of these. Impossible to steal as nobody know how to get in let alone start one of these. lol

That and you wear OCBDs and loafers.

I think the best you can aspire to is a modded Porsche.

I would take the exotic.
