I agree with lyonsroar.. People post everything in here. Just because it's a members car doesn't mean there needs to be catering to their feelings about it. You can post my car in here because it has rockstars on it, doesn't mean I care if you think it's a fail or not. If you like your car the way it is you wouldn't be offended.

I could care less what anyone thinks of my car to be honest, it's mine. Not theirs.

Lyonsroar shouldn't have gotten an infraction for an opinion of a car which 95% of us would agree that it was a fail on anyone else's vehicle.

Rockstars are the opposite of fail imo

But yeah, I agree with your above statement!

Rock stars fail because they weight as much as a small moon. That's it.

Those rims... not a fan of shaved handles either..
Not very custom of a paint job, anyone notice the jambs and the hatch area? it was green to begin with and those areas weren't even painted, they are a bit lighter color green.
painting bits of the stock interior does not make it custom interior.
rattle canning the engine compartment with undercoating is in no way custom and looks like crap. painting 4 pieces under the hood is not customizing. and the only "mods I see are a cai and plug wires.
now the scary thing is if you notice he says he has an on board compressor... usually for a bag system they draw off the battery because of larger wire needed to combat voltage/amperage drop over that distance. there is no second hookup at the positive on the battery. Nor is there a power for this supposedly booming stereo. I'm curious where all this draw is coming from and if there's a meltdown looming at some point.
And 10 switches for the bags... theres friggin 4 bags. unless your dancing it you need 3 (2 on-off-on, 1 single for comp) or 5 if you use all singles
No way in hell is there even close to $5k invested in this thing, let alone $15k. pretty much a hack job with alot that needs to be redone for safety.
