holy cow i started this thread yesterday and went to work and just rechecked it now and its out of control! my take on it: asians have been modding cars for years, jdm blah blah blah. i think majority of asian members here either owned an integra, crx, civic, prelude, accord, etc.....in their teens. and brought that jdm feel to the bmw community when they grew up and could afford these cars. the jdm look coupled with the euro cars appealed to other races and expanded the modding community. we all tried engine swaps turbochargers headers etc,... in our teens but never really had the money to make something really worthwhile. Now we do. Now this is the part that sounds racist but isnt, its all preconcieved conceptions conjured up while observing the modding community and ongoing trends. Africans love big a$$ rims on expensive cars with NO drop whatsoever. Latinos are cheap with there modding and love raider stickers. caucasians follow trends and still remember that american muscle ( hp freaks). asians usually never forget jdm roots. armenians are a mystery to me how they get there money at such a young age.!!!Sorry for the long post!!!! IM DRUNK

I'm not racist.

People I've met from the forums:
Every Chinese person I've met, their car smells like Soy Sauce and they talk really fast.
Every Vietnamese person I've met, their car smells like Fish sauce and they go to LTBMW.
Every Black person I've met (1) has a system in their car.
Every Mexican I've met claims they are not Mexican. WTF, you aren't from Cuba or Puerto Rico, you are Mexican.
Every Taiwanese person I've met is like under 25 and their parents bought their car. Usually they have a M3.
Every white person I've met smells like alcohol.
Every Filipino I've met, their car smells like pancit and they are a nurse.
Every Aremenian I've met, has crazy armhair and owns a Salvaged M series.

I am not racist, I swear.

(Mods: Please don't ban me this is satire).
