Before I had any sense, I started off my mechanic career at a Honda dealer. I moved onto to bigger and better things=UPS semi trucks.
I've driven customers riced out Civics. Most of the time the riced Civics were loud without adding any meaningful power and rode like garbage.
If you wanna work on something, buy a GTI and leave it stock. It'll break down on you. But it's better to work on a GTI
than work on ricing out a turd.

What a bunch of losers!

It's a nice looking oil cap. Nothing wrong with a little dress up. Same guys would probably go nuts over a $1000 aluminum accessory drive on a V8.

I agree,nice looking oil cap. Tasteful engine bay dress up. If everyone would look at his sig,he has suspension and exhaust performance upgrades. Tien and Borla are among the best in import performance parts.

Be willing to bet there's more than one member reading this with unnecessary dress-up parts on his SUV or PU or Harley (for sure).....

170K in 3 years?? Good grief man, you must live in that car. If you have a 40 hr/wk job how do you do that?

Great looking MR2 there TV, Toyota really nailed the styling. Later years not so much.
