Import vs. Domestic and Comparison Discussions and Debates Here.
Feel free to post up the best of the worst, domestic or import it doesn't matter. This includes ricers, lund stick on overkill, redneckery, etc.
I'll start it off.
Hi. You all know me, so no introduction is necessary.
I've decided to post this, a series of possible projects for everyone to look at. I'll detail the project as much as possible giving all sorts of wonderful lists and instructions, maybe inspiring someone out there.
My projects are not...

It has come to my attention that a follow to the rules of engagement has become necessary in this section.
Below are the "Rules of Engagement" as posted by Cycocase:
On top of these items, I am hereby adding the following rules:
Ammended - 12/17/06
In an effort to maintain some semblance of civility in the often contested, very passionate subject of imports vs. domestics, we have decided to lay down a couple of rules - a code of conduct for all members who post in this import vs. domestic forum to abide by, lest their...
Comparison Test: 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 vs. 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe
This comparison test between the 470-horsepower, 6.4-liter 2011 Dodge Challenger SRT8 and the 335-hp, 3.0-liter twin-turbo 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe is intentionally not apples to apples. And so what?
When was the...
Turbochargers are fast becoming ubiquitous. It's not because the whole car-buying world is crying out for huge surpluses of horsepower, but because turbos are simply the most elegant way to help small engines produce power while still delivering decent fuel economy. That's been obvious for decades....
The car was run over and over again producing times in the 9.0.

Domestics suck because I said so. If you don't agree you are an idiot, and obviously not as smart as I am.
Don't bother arguing. I wont change my mind :)
To further my point:
Look at this ugly neon. Orange what the hell is that?
Wow, lose the spoiler and you might have something there.
Hey guys, hope things are as lively as I suspect around here, it's been a while and I need some of those good, honest opinions without this thread turning into a circus. First off - college is close by, so I'll be commuting instead of living on campus, which is far from cheap. Accordingly, I'll be...

Now are you high or just stupid? An M3 against a Mustang GT? On a racetrack? Seriously, son, which one is it? High or stupid?"
Yes, we know how this sounds. And had we suggested this matchup just a few months ago, we would deserve more withering scorn than can be found in a week-long Judge Judy...

I just wanna get an idea if most car enthusiast like...
Why dont Japanese cars have warrenties that cover the drive train for 100,000 miles like GM does. Does it in fact indicate that the Japanese car makers know that their cars are not as reliable as a GM car.
Front wheel drive cars suck. There are many reasons this is true. First of all they put so much weight on the front end of the car, they tear hell out of the front tires and brakes. Most but not all usually have strut supension on the front of the cars. Struts have poor geometry and are hugely...

I thot the Element and the other ugly pos from Japan was bad, but look what is comming out now. Many have huge gaping holes in the front so you can see the radiator and other junk. NOW we come to the Nissan Juke. It should be called the JOKE. All of them make the Aztec look like a work of...
