In no particular order:

1. Fake chrome never looks good, especially on a 2007 Impala. (door handles, a,b,c pillars, tailights, etc.)

2. A gas filling door is only a nice looking feature on a Viper, but on your Ford Truck, a brushed steel one looks stupid.

3. Your wheels should never be the nicest looking thing about your car, especially if they are worth more than your car.

4. Also with wheels, bigger is not always better. 22s only look good on a big truck, not a civic.

5. If an aftermarket part isn't functional, it doesn't look good. Tape/glue on hood scoops are ugly.

6. If I think 22 clowns might jump out of your car at any moment, your car will never be cool, no matter what you do. (Kia Soul, Scion XB)

7. Lift kits are only for 4X4 trucks/SUVs, period.

8. "Blacked out" only works on intimidating cars. Not your Corolla.

9. Fart cans never sound good, especially if all that noise is only backed up by a 15 second car.

10. Just because you CAN do something to a car doesn't mean you SHOULD do it to a car. (and yes that means you too my hillbilly friends that have used dryer tubing to make a cold air intake)

I have no clothing fashion sense so I don't even try. If you have no car fashion sense, you shouldn't try either.

But the fart can is how they got to 15 seconds in the first place. Before that, it was a 14 second...

It's all in the eye of the beholder.... The rule here is the louder it is the faster it is suppose to be.
