Angry The ultimate poser! (Its not even an M3!!!!) Disgusting!

I was on Highland Ave. in traffic as usual coming from Inglewood (had to get my hair braided), and saw this mess... Why would someone purchase a car and not be happy with their purchase? Insecurities are so obvious when you see things like this.... He should have been happy with his 323 or 328.

Yeah I've seen people do that before.
Not quite sure why they do it.
Guess they think they'll impress people that don't know better.
But at the cost of looking like a complete idiot wannabe to those who DO know better.

I have a neighbor with a Scion Xb
He obviously ordered the parts/decals from a Mitsu dealer.
He, I kid you not, has "EVOLUTION" on the front and rear of the car.
It's really laughable.

The best is when someone puts "Spider" on their car when it's not even a convertible!

More like this. With a slight curve of the rows. I have more of a starburst design now (all the braids starting from the center and going straight back), but this is how I used to get it done.

Yeah the car looked great until I found out he was trying to have a car he obviously couldn't afford. It just irritates me to see when people do that. I always say, be proud for what you can afford, at least he has enough money to buy a car, some people can't afford a car payment. He's blessed enough not to have to walk.

That was probably my neighbor a few doors away.
Couldn't possibly be two tools in LA area with Scions with EVOLUTION on their cars.
Was the car grey?
