B/C EVERYONE AND THEIR MOMMA SEEM TO DRIVE A HONDA AND THOSE THAT CHOOSE TO CUSTOMIZE THEIR RIDE PUT ON AN ILLUSION THAT THEY'RE FASTER THAN EVERONE ELSE B/C THEY HAVE AN A/M EXHAUST

MY OPNION....B/C THOSE THAT DO MODIFY THEIR CAR THE "RIGHT WAY" PUT OUT HUGE GAINS IN THEIR 4 CYLINDER WHILE OTHERS IN THEIR V6-8 BRAG ABOUT PUTTING OUT HIGHER GAINS...ALSO...MORE HOT SPOTS AND HANGOUTS WITH HONDA OR "IMPORT" OWNERS

because most (NOTE: I SAID MOST, NOT ALL) Honda owners make the worst modifications to their cars, such as Altezza lights and other ugly ass shit, and then claim that they're the fastest thing on the road and can take all challengers. i'll admit, there are some hardcore guys out there that own Honda's that are truly fast (such as Spoon Honda's), but the majority of the ones you hear about today are ugly-ass show cars with huge, heavy, ugly body kits, heavy ugly chrome wheels, neon kits, altezza's, aluminum wings and nothing done to the engine.

dont think so kid . Civic owners are the cream of the crop around here . Rims , body kits , altezzas , lookin pretty nice , engine swaps , turbos etc . If you hate a nice looking car and speed then thats your problem.

waste of a thread?

this is gonna become a flame war and a 1/2...

who cares?

we all know why people hate on certain cars of certain makes, not just hondas...

there's ricy everything. end of story.

i've seen some ugly (and slow) 240sx's as well, so it's not all honda...

and it's not just honda and nissan... rice has no OEM manufacturer... it's an aftermarket universal product.

get over it.

Chris, its not that we dislike honda owners, its the fact that everywhere you go you see that same annoying honda look that everybody is copping. There is no room for innovation when dealing with hondas because ideas are being stolen as soon as you think of them. Signal auto just recently put a NSX engine in a ek hatch! Now thats innovation!Instead of following trends,you should set them.





PEACE!

I have respect for any fast car, domestics included. The reason why I think most people hate on honda's is because thats what most 16 year old kids end up getting as their first car because it's "the cool thing to do" and since their part-time jobs can only allow them to afford things such as body kits, wings, and crap that doesnt help your car in any way. I know that wings and body kits can be functional, BUT how many 16 year old kids do you see driving around with mugen body kits that have a function. I have friends that drive honda's and I love their cars. There's a local guy who dynoed 500 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque on his turbocharged SI about 3 months ago. The reason why people hate on honda's is because the majority of them driving around with their body kits and 5 inch tips from walmart, well.... suck. I've seen an S13 fastback in my area driving around with red window tint, ugly graphics on the side, and a huge wing, while his motor is stock. I put this guy down with all the honda ricers. Just because he's driving a ricey nissan doesnt mean that I like his car any better than the ricey hondas. That's my opinion at least
