I wouldn't say its all for looks, but if you want to generalize that's fine.

This is rice due to lack of intelligence. You either make a race car or a stance car...not both. What is the benefit of adding horsepower and adding camber and a stretched tire? You add more power and reduce your contact patch on your tire???? All that is good for is making lots of smoke and spending lots of money on tires.

I personally like it. Love the low ( he could go lower though with that stretch) but its like the VW guys. Slamming their cars to the ground and being boosted, it helps with looks but it's actually amazing at how well they can hook. Remember looks can be deceiving.

Do you see that intercooler? Hes boosted........
I can clearly see the intercooler, or possibly a performance radiator (look them up, they do exist and do look like intercoolers..) but that doesn't mean that cars fast. I have come across a turbo'd civic here and there that could barely outrun my grand prix SE. Then again, I saw a civic at a local show on the Dyno that laid down 398hp with 318tq on 22lbs boost. You couldn't tell it was that fast but could see the intercooler as well.

You really never know until you see it in person on a Dyno on make a run on the street

Stretch and Poke is impractical and makes a boosted car pointless, not to mention, that much more unsafe. But, we've had debates about S&P before. IMHO, it's pointless and .
