i got an imported active sport, but apparently its a gtr???

fair enough...

my only reservation is that if someone pulls up with you at the lights in a real GT4... you are going to be soo embarrsed when you become a dot in his rear view mirror...

this is just my own opinion and everyone to their own.. I just dont like cars kitted up to look faster than what they are...

fair point mate!,

i know exactly what you mean, the old look a like crazy!,

but then again whats wrong with having a motor that looks Sh@t hot, that has a not bad engine in it!.

go for looks rather than performance,

but then again performance or looks?

could start a debate here!

Fizz you really do talk my language :lol:

I pulled up next to what i thought was a GT4 the other day, turned out to be a 1.8 ST Gen6 :lol: He looked pale faced so much that i thought he was going to be sick. I guess it hit him at that moment just what a fake he was being next to the real deal :thumbsup:

I'd say for me performance is everything. I mean whats the point in baking a cake that looks nice and tastes like ****. :lol:

Luckly there are very few performance cars that look munty. Apart from the 300zx but we wont go into that. :lol:

Supra, Celica, MR2, Skyline, Lancer...all very nice looking cars.

yup.. i can see the debate you have started...note i said 'you'! :P

I understand if you want to modify your car to look different.. but i wouldn't want to make my car look like another make or model of car...(i.e GT4 bonnet) Thats there for a purpose for the 3SGTE engine which needs all that cooling....

i never expected to get slated!,

i only just started to see what potential their is for my "standard" car.

and the big spolier actually appealed to me for looks rather than trying to look like a gt4,

i guess yous have helped make my mind up!, ill just sort the performance first!. :wacko::wacko:

IMHO there is nothing wrong with concentrating on a cars looks...

My IS is plenty fast enough for what i use it for, and if i had the cash, i would concentrate on modding the looks over the engine...

After all, if you spend that much on the looks, you will have to drive slow so everyone can see ;)

Thankyou!! - was feeling a bit slated myself until I got to that one. Will afford an engine transplant one day though!

er... I think that spoiler looks dreadful... :o

as mentioned earlier, it might as well have been stolen from an evo6 :blink:

goes completely against the curvaceous lines of the gen5, the spoiler works on an evo because it is an angular shape. :arrgg-matey:

I would shake my head if I saw that drive past me :wacko:

and quite agreed, it would have to be a GT4 to even consider assaulting your gen5 with that awful spoiler :!Removed!:

I think that whole kit is completely ****.

I hate cars that are made to make silly little pikey girls moist with stupid **** wings that do nothing cos they think wings make a fast car.

I hate discontinuous styling - what do i mean? Curvy celica, so stick a flat/squared off splitter on the front = horrendous!

I hate half ubikd styling attempts. Big wing, big splitter , nothing down the sides to balance it out!

I hate ridiculous attempts to make rally legend cars look like 1/4 mile "street racers".

In the US they use the term ricers to describe poorly executed body work, chromed tail pipe add-ons, stupid big alloy wings etc on honda's etc as part of this street racing crap. In the UK i think our ricers are things like this. gtr isnt a bad celica, corsa gsi isnt a bad car, saxo isnt a bad first car, but stick crap like that on them, they just look stupid.

emicen is right though, to stick a square/flat body kit on a car which is predominantly curvy... you'd have to be one of two things;

A. tasteless :yes:

B. crazy :wacko:

there is nothing wrong with the stock spoiler on the gen5 as it is.. :(

then again some people may have clued onto the fact that I detest big body kits and prefer subtle attempts at styling. :bye:

A good condition gen5, in black, perhaps with some nice alloys... (and a small back box if u like the noise i suppose :rolleyes: ) is all u need to make a gen5 look great!

its looks are classic, so I say; why change them :huh:
