    Link seems to be down, but while on the subject check out this crash that happened near my house. [​IMG]

    edit- link's back up! Saw that before, seems like a waste to me.. make a supercar's body look like another supercar? I guess if you can why not but I could see much better use with the time & money.

    Yeah, I was going to say the same thing....what was the point in doing that?
    It's like saying "I'm going to take this Firebird and turn it into a Camero!!" ...whatever.


    At least make it look like Racer-X's car or something.[​IMG]

    Wow, there is a stuck throttle body recall on the WRX. Surprised I haven't heard about it much like those Audis and there bad PR with their sudden acceleration.

    I always thought the Acura NSX looked like a Ferarri.

    forgot to mention that someone had already screwed up before they brought that into the shop. that's one UGLY wing on the back of it. certainly that didn't happen to be stock one year? truly bad taste.

    I really don't understand the mod either, as the NSX is a fine automobile. Though it is a waste IMO, credit is due - the fibreglass bodywork done in that shop and on that job is incredible.

    While the glass work is nice, they should have used carbon fiber [​IMG]

    one perfectly fine car + a bunch of crap loaded on top = wtf?

    but i'll agree the craftmanship looks pretty solid.

    They did a spectacular job, but it's too bad they chose an NSX instead of a 1968 Volkswagen Beetle.

    Bose is stock on the NSX. It's got amps and speakers packaged together in the doors and just does line level from the Bose Head unit.

    Most NSX owners don't bother to switch it out because the sizes/fit is weird and you didn't buy the thing to listen to the radio anyway.

    most NSX owners don't customize the crap out of their cars either. so, for this example, your reasoning most likely is incorrect, which is why i asked the question.

    LMAO! I would love to see a Ferrari jerking down the street with the sound of a beetle engine. [​IMG]

    Wonder if that would sound something akin to the sound of a sewing machine coming out of a riding mower. [​IMG]
