    Although the awful ricer stuff is bad, I think the worst is hilariously inappropriate branding.

    Use of the "M" badge is often the worst offender.

    Took this picture a few nights ago. Then someone started yelling at me in Russian. I was wearing my bridge coat, I think he thought I was KGB [​IMG]

    This distressed me:

    This was from the intertubes, but astonishing:

    I thought that porsche was a factory production car? They do make some outlandish wings and colour combos though.

    I hate massive wings, body kits, etc....

    They probably will as the final nail in the coffin that was the "M" series. I'm sure soon you'll be able to slap M on to every production BMW without regard to performance. If they made a pickup truck, I'm sure they'd slap in on there as well.

    I recall seeing a GT3 some years ago with that kit. Here's a similar one on the web: [​IMG] Edit: Actually, here it is, a 2007 GT3 RS: [​IMG]

    The Porsche is a stock GT3 RS.

    Those tail lights on that Honda are very popular on Ladas in Russia.

    And yet the least of the car's problems. Altezza lights, right?

    It's still ghastly. The color scheme is garish beyond belief.

    Flashy chrome rims larger than 18", most often seen on 80's G-body cars and Caddilacs 1970-present. Can't leave out fart-cans either. I don't know what irritates me more, a high-pitched fart can or some jackass with glasspacks on his truck flooring it at 1am........

    I had a roommate back in college that always wanted to attach a very large dildo to the hood of his car.
