    in SA

    honda's have about the highest resale value

    and "doing them up" to the max with all that graphics like in fast and the furious stuff is dumb.

    but most honda's do really look nice with a minimal body kit and nice 17' mags

    honda's have a sporty look to them already so one or two mods doesnt detract from the image of the car.

    but over the top

    "look at me I cant afford a reall sports car so I've made my honda look like a cartoon car"

    is just dumb


    less is more

    HP per liter is an idication of how well an engine is engineered, but to say that it is the end all be all of engineering is ignorant. How about how light an engine is, how about how much torque per liter an engine makes, how about the torque curve, how about the amount of moving parts? There is more than 1 way to judge an engine.

    Red face Torque

    excactly, 4-cylinders dont have much torque i'm afraid to say. Trust me my mom has a 2.0L Contour and that thing HAS NO TORQUE at all.

    Dweeb - you're just an expert in everythink - aren't you?

    Big engines don't cost more 'monkey-boy' - they cost less and have more torque.

    They cost less for very simple reasons (maybe even your monkey brain can understand). They are mass produced by the largest industrial nation on the planet and they don't need OHV's & VVT's etc - can you [B]u-n-d-e-r-s-t-a-n-d t-h-a-t ?[B] Dweeb.

    Lets see Europe has Neons, PT Cruisers Voyagers, and Grand Voyagers. Austrilia Has PT Cruisers, Voyagers and Vipers. Japan has PT Cruisers, Voyagers and the 300M.

    This was just Chrysler.

    PS

    Alot of other countrys Tax displacement, as in Japan, so they do not sell due to the huge price and the taxes put on the displacement.

    Go here, to Ford Japan and buy yourself a 'Stang

    No, not at all! You're actually giving the car a little more pep, rather than take the money you would've spent on the engine and buying a useless bodykit/rims/spoiler.

    put on some clean rims, get your little boost and be done. Like Egg nog said, that's not rice, but when you get into all that other crap like body kits, carbon fiber hoods, etc...then its rice

    Hey fastbird. Put whatever you want on it and if anyone else doesnt like it let them walk.
