Makes sense then.  I didn't know if someone paid you or not for that.  Either way it looks great from that angle.

I will admit to using Klasse products on my $6k Honda Civic back in the day. That was a sweet ride - the DX model, which was unencumbered by nonessentials like a/c and power windows for that extra performance on the race track. Let the suckas pay extra for the LX and EX

My 1st car was a 1987 Honda Civic Si Hatchback (manual) that I literally rode into the ground at 250k plus miles. The front axal snapped due to rust + speed humps.

I completely get it.  I was always raised to take care of the things you have.

 

To otc's point, it is about pride in ownership.

So my sister is thinking about buying a new F-type. But she kind of needs a shit car sometimes. What is a good used stealth luxury car? 1st gen Hyundai Genesis? Some old Infiniti? Just get a new Civic or something?

I was gonna say 4th or 5th gen Lexus ES, but the Acura TL is a good one too. Can be had on the cheap and they are pretty good to drive.

A slightly more expensive, sportier and powerful, option would be a 3rd gen Infinti M, non-v8.

Is there a non-luxury nameplate car that was nicer than the name indicates?

Thanks. I keep thinking I should do some detailing on the side. But, I am not sure if people I know would really pay what it is worth - the Grand Am had almost 10hrs of my time in it, and it is a hard 10 hrs at that.
