hahaha, i get that a lot, especially from experienced car guys. regular people just ask me if it's broken, and everybody asks me if it's safe.
it's not =P
but here's a photo:
that was taken when the car was about half an inch higher than it is right now, with about half a degree less camber in the rear than it is now. for clarification, the fronts are only doing about -4*.
the japanese call this style of tuning "vip", pronounced like "hip", not "vee-eye-pee". essentially, it's taking an expensive japanese luxury sedan and tuning it. you'll see different influences, like from yankee style cars, sporty/drift style cars, old school yakuza cars, european vw/audis, etc, but almost all vip cars share a few traits: 1. super low, 2. crazy wheel fitment, whether flush or tucked. most of the japanese vip tuners run coilovers, so most guys actually do drive that low (as do i).
here are some more (better) examples (and as you can see, my car is nowhere near the weirdness/badassness/craziness of these cars yet):
wow, i can't believe i'm talking about vip-tuning on styleforum, and sorry for the long-winded explanation!
