7 Easy Ways To Know If Your Tuner Car Has Jumped The Shark Page 3

Follow Nelson


OK, the Mansory bashing is over. Time to vent our frustrations on one (other) unfortunately wealthy soul. It's rare that one car embodies so many aspects of what's wrong with tuner culture, but here we have a perfect storm: a Lamborghini Gallardo of unknown provenance, rightfully and powerfully mocked at Teamspeed.

3) Your car is now slower, heavier, and (to most eyes but your own) uglier than the car you started with.

All that stick-on chrome-ish stuff (and those wheels...) adds up.

4) Your car has applique hood scoops, fender vents, eyebrows, chrome or gold trim, or any outward association with Pep Boys, Autozone, O'Reilly's, or Advance Auto.

Really? Stick-on fender (and side) vents on a Gallardo? Really?!?

5) No one notices your vanity plate because they're too distracted by the Supra wing, hideous over-use of mesh bling, under-lighting, and Fast/Furious vinyl.

Wing: check. Mesh: check. Under-lighting and vinyl? Probably on next week's to-do list.

6) Your car embodies (and you frequently say things like): "slizzamed," "hellaflush," "stanced," "murdered out," or "yo!"

We can't imagine it being any other way.

7) Your wheels are ridonkulous, even if not donker-sized.

If they're too garish for a Caprice on stilts, they don't belong on your Lambo, even if they do "fit."
