Sick and tire of people thinking their car is better just because it's faster 0-60. My friend just got a new car a couple of month ago (a used maxima 2002 bottom of the line with no luxury features what so ever). He passed up a brand new acura tsx for this car. i think he spend 21k or so. but anyhow what was he smoking. the interior (no leather seat) is nasty and the ride sucks but for some reason he thinks his car is better than my is300 cause he smoked me by about 2 car lenghts and he kept up with an acura type S. everytime i talk to this fool he anyways asking me why did i buy an is300 for, why not a evo, or he would say isn't the is300 suppose fast cause it's 30k. The thing that really pisses me off is when he says stuff like i should have gotta a madza 6 because it's fast and it look good to him. anyhow is there anyway to mod my car just enough so i can spank fool like this. like is there a small turbo out there for around 3k, or could i beat a maxima with just NA mods. thanks

get some balls?
why are you so weak minded?
why do you care what he thinks of YOUR car?



I don't understand why you would care about what he has to say. It's your money, it's your car, it's your choice. Does he pick underwear for you too? What about women? Does he tell you who you should be with?


In the end you drive a Lexus and he drives a Nissan. Two different cars, two different people.

There are idiots like that everywhere. Speed is one factor in purchasing a car. Guys like that think they are bad until they run up against the bear. There is a guy where I live with a Maxima and has spinners on the car!!! lol. He revved on me and smoked his piece like he was standing still. Remember there will always be someone faster my friend.

just tell them the truth,

"my parents bought the car for me, when i can pay for things myself, i'll purchase something faster and smoke your ass, we'll meet here for our 5 year reunion and i'll have 800hp to crush you with"

you should definitely feel embarassed that your parents bought you a 30k+ car to drive around while they shell out 20k a year for your education at the university of georgia. i'm sure they try their best, but i really don't know why they couldn't do better?

intake, headers, exhaust, and LEARN TO DRIVE. believe me it makes the diff. on the highway i beat a acura rsx type s( that guy was trying really hard to catch up too) to my STOCK 1988 HONDA ACCORD LX-i. I wasn't trying, just playing around with him, reason why i did not get a rsx. hp, blah blah is nothing when you can't drive...

fuck that!

it has nothing to do with being fast or being a newb, it has to do with perspective and appreciation. i take it you are you and spoiled as well and have neither?
