how about the spoilers, wider rims/tires, bolt-on fender flares and all the aggressive looks? those are not the "performance" elements of a car? please...

next time buy something other than a 3 cylinder if you want your car to look or perform "serious".

Actually, the owner has many "sick" cars. This is one of his toys. To each their own.

They aren't performance mods when all you do is hard-park your car all day long.

They just bought it for show. Like those hondas and their GT wings

Right.

So your argument with twitchy about whether the owner bought it as a performance car is moot. He didn't add those components to make it faster, he just wanted it to look different.

0-100 doesn't matter for the owner, so who cares?

Your sarcasm here suggests that you think the owner bought the spoiler and shit for performance, when obviously he did not.

I like it. It's always nice to see niche cars done up nicely.

Whether something is pointless is so subjective. My dad will school rsers all day on how pointless performance mods are on ANY car but he also have nothing but praises for the cheapo massage seat add-on on his 70g merc ==

At least this smart is done up nicely. Who cares if it's slow. That wasn't the point of getting a smart car to begin with.

i was basically backing up 1exotic's post about this thing being a huge waste of money by mentioning 0-100 after his post. considering the fact that lots of money has been dumped into this thing, it still should be slow as balls. then twitchy chimes in with his sarcastic post implying it is "not" a performance car. my answer to him was basically "well, no shit bro"...

I know the car is no performance car but realistically a electronically limited top speed of 120 is not really acceptable for a car of that price amirite?

Or is it faster for the new gen? The 120 top speed limiter was downright dangerous on 91 during rush hour when everyone does "your top speed + 10"
