Wow! Is this stuff cool! I'm giving up the idea of sideskirts and a new nose, this automobile "Bling" will make my sportscar the envy of all. And the price is right!!! Thanks so much for the post!

I think that is to keep the amplifier for the sound system cool...very innovative and most practical. Only $995.00! I also hope that wonderful hood emblem is included. PayPal here I come!

I'm glad that I've never seen any boxsters in Japan with this outrageous 'thing' despite the number of rice cars existed

Hi,

Correction - Oy Vey = Yiddish. Yiddish is a Germanic language spoken by predominantly Ashkenazic Jews. The name Yiddish itself is Yiddish for "Jewish" (in German, it's jüdisch) and is likely an abbreviated rendition of yidish-taytsh, or "Jewish German".

I had a Jewish friend growing up. We used to swim in the Pool at his local Temple after school, the only catch was we has to sit through a half hour of Hebrew School. I was the only Goy (meaning someone who is not Jewish) in the Class...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99

You are right! I said Hebrew, thinking that I was being more respectful.

Riceboy does good work. On a similar theme with a BMW twist I enjoy Jimmy 540i's BMW Nightmare page.

I have a serious question: Concerning the giant wings that these numb nutz are bolting on their trunk...If that wing produced any significant amount of downforce..wouldn't it just push the trunk lid in? Aren't those wings (spoilers, etc) supposed to be connected to the frame in some way?

I agree, that bullwinkle spoiler on that BMW is massive, what happens if a bolt lets loose and changes angle (upwards?) ass over head??

Most factory installed spoilers are attached to a much more sucure frame member than the trunk or at least to the solid non moveable body member.

A friend, big in muscle car drag racing once told me "You can never have enough horsepower or down force"
