Tuner cars

Tuner cars have become very popular over the past couple of years. You see a tuner car in every movie and some movies are all about these cars and the life style of their owners. Movies like the fast and the furious one and two are all about this life style, people of all ages are into tuners. I have been in the tuner world for over 15 years and I can not stop now. I am into all kinds of cars tuners, muscle, lowrider and classics. Tuner cars can been seen in every mall parking lot all across the world. The first tuners I saw where the Japanese cars Toyota, Mazda, Honda and Nissan. These cars had the tuner world cornered, my first real tuner was a Mazda RX-7. My first true love! But now tuners came in all shapes and brands. The tuner car can be easily spotted, usually phat rims bright paint with some kind of design on the panels or hood loud exhaust and loud music. The interior of the car is my favorite part I like a clean sound system with a lot of base and mids.
*Body modifications: * Aerodynamic-seeming or creatively-designed body kits, often with little function * Wings and spoilers that serve no useful function (especially if the car is front wheel drive), possibly increasing drag and decreasing traction. * Carbon fiber hoods (sometimes fiberglass replicas made to look like carbon fiber, or just decorative self adhesive plastic with carbon fiber look) * Non-functional hood scoops and roof scoops. * Excessively large wheels ("rims") (for example chromed, or "dubs", as well as Spinners) that often decrease acceleration due to higher rotational inertia. Handling is also often made worse by the extra unsprung weight. * Improperly lowered suspension, such as stock springs shortened by heating or cutting. Or from not getting a proper alignment resulting in excessive negative camber. * Bumper canards fitted to the front bumper. * Aesthetics: * Bright paint or interior, frequently in contrasting colors * Decals and stickers for aftermarket parts not actually present on the vehicle. A common joke is that every decal "adds 10 horsepower" to the car. * Badging from other higher-performance vehicles or JDM tuning companies like Mugen, Nismo, etc. * Digital turbo, consisting of speakers installed under the car that emulate the sound of a turbo engine. * A loud, free-flowing exhaust system with a large cylindrical resonator at the rear of the car, known as a "fart cannon", a "coffee can" and many other colorful names. Frequently a short large-diameter piece is added to the end of the stock exhaust to provide the appearance of a true free-flowing system without any actual performance enhancement.
