i guess you missed the 240sx, the SRT-4, Mini and the Miata. if you ask me, they hooked those rides up pretty damn well. not to mention that 'ice racer' they had early in the season.
take it for what its worth, a sponsored tv show on modifying cars. if you want tips on modifying your car stick to forums like this one or watch Sports Car Revolution. at least in SCR they pay attention to details....minus that stupid dyno girl thing they do its a pretty decent show.
Yeah, I saw that the first time they played it too. He actually got some really nice mods, except for the body kit. I must say the huge gaps around the headlights looks real clean (insert sarcasm). Everything else though was nice: header, exhaust, intake (although kind of ghetto looking), pulley, Eibach's, and I love the Brembo and other brake upgrades. And they wheels didn't look all that bad: 18" gunmetals with a silver lip. I just hope they gave him his stock pieces back so that he can redo the body!
