I've been on this site for quite some time now, and ive read a lot of comments. what i dont understand is why people leave negative comments in any form. people ripping on someone else's ride because its not to their liking. im tired of reading comments like, "if you were going to do this work, you should have bought this car", or "why would you jack up/drop that kind of vehicle". Tuner cars are more about a persons expression of themself and how they see their car. some people buy SUV's to get groceries or to put their sports gear in. some like having a roof rack for their surfboards. some buy them to off road. same thing with cars. cars can be tuned for street, track, drag or rally. there are more, but im not going to get into all the types of racing. what my biggest complaint comes from is seeing comments from people who criticize someones ride because they did something to their car that isnt what others would do to it. i think people should be appreciated for being different. just because you have an STi, doesnt mean youre going to be rally driving mountain roads. Just because i have a jeep, doesnt mean im going to go off-roading. I think its great to see jeeps that are set up to off road, and one day, id like to take a YJ and do the same thing. but for now, my focus has been on turning my WJ into a street mod. i have focused on custom work and have done work that is a first on this body style. if you disagree with the work someone has done to their vehicle, keep it to yourself. it makes you look a little dim when you bother leaving negative remarks because you have a different view. i know a lot of you reading this have either read those comments or have had those comments left and im sure many of you agree with me. There are two types of car people. Supportive people who like to see different and interesting cars, and jealous people who think that they either have the best ride, or want to have the best ride.
