I still won't ever understand why people who have the money to pay for a 65k car, would choose to shove knockoff shit on their car.

It's a fucking disaster. What the hell is the point of getting an knockoff Akra for? What the fuck is wrong with people?

Then again there are threads still regarding DCT jerkiness so I'm not surprised on how dumb people are.

Edit: Honestly. Would you buy Chinese knockoff shoes and purse? Any reasonable person wouldn't. Just because it is a car, no matter how dumb the pricing is, shouldn't do it.

You’d be surprised how many zero down lease people there are......aka really strechungbto get into the car. A multi thousand dollar outlay isn’t in the cards for a lot of them.

Also a bunch of us are cheap asses as well.

But yes. I agree with you and only get high quality mods.

I know there are exceptions. Like getting a 200 - 500 lease per month is reasonable w/o downpayment since I'm looking to do that but within reasons you know?

Never trust Chinese stuff. Ever.

I was more thinking the type that roll everything in plus negative equity from a trade because they gotta have the car. And then are stretching to make the payment.

I sort of agree, there is some decent stuff, but yes you gotta be really careful.

I don't see an issue with knockoff carbon fiber stuff. The risk you take is that the weave or fitment is bad, but I've seen a lot of knockoff CF lips and spoilers that look and fit as good as the real deal that costs 3-4x more. We all know there is no performance difference, so I don't see the problem. I would never pay $1900 for a CS lip... but a fake one for a few hundo. Definitely.

A fake akra, on the other hand... I mean, does it sound like an akra? I didn't even know they made fake exhausts.

There are a lot of nice CF parts that aren't "name brand" that fit and look great.

You have to find that fine line between complete and utter trash and a quality part that doesn't have a 1000% markup.

I've seen plenty of folks around here cry about the fitment and quality of a lot of the top brands around here.

For the first time in at least a decade, AFAIK, i have no visible carbon fiber anywhere and it's fucking glorious.

I'm trying and I might be able to. Although the dealership is telling me the mandatory 1,5k (?) is for title, first month payment and delivery fee or something along those lines.

HOWEVER, it is for a Alfa Romeo Giulia. I'm so far might be able to push a $244, 24 months, 10k miles. I'm trying to find out the APR and residual but if I keep that payment at $244, I'm going to do it since it won't increase the interest rate on my payment if it is truly $244 per month.

I am embarrassed to say I had an employee that worked for me that fell for 0-0-0, zero down, zero interest, zero payments for 3 or 6 months or something like that.

Bought a new Mitsubishi Spyder convertible. Drove around for the 3 or 6 months then realized he had to start making payments...couldn't make them and thought he could just turn car back in and he would be good...well his father inlaw bailed him out for $10k.

I guess I was embarrassed to have someone soooo stupid working for me...

My luck with my stupid dogs is going fine again. Last week the idiot kissa puked for 15 hours thanks to a bottle of cooking oil she inhaled. Tonight she is passing fibers. She ate a kitchen towel. I'm pretty sure we will enjoy a night of explosive diarrhea or something else as fun. She seems to love eating anything she can and then getting sick.

Oh well, freaky hobbies is a tradition in this family.

Not yet and they just did a huge fuck up.

Sorry to hear about the dog issues, but thank you for reminding me why we are not getting another dog when our old girl dies.

Guess I'd argue differently - personally see my car color wearing CF really well - have tried cheap carbon and 100% fail so never again - 3D Design, RKP, Stercken and Exotics Tuning (hood) here with perfect fitment all round - trouble with cheap knock-offs is that it would drive me crazy to look at my daily driver and see misfit pieces - just me - I guess this thing looks pretty glorious to me !

Hahaha, her hobby is to steal and eat everything and she also has an extremely weak stomach.

We tested just about every brand of dog food sold at the vet, specialized stores and nothing worked for her. When we moved back here we had to give her this shitty food from the grocery store since we didn't have anything for her( still on their way then) and the only brand in the store near by is probably the worst food I've ever fed to a dog and funnily enough, that's now the only one she tolerates.

She likes to supplement her dinners by stealing everything she can get her greedy paws on and then she is ill for a few days. At least once a month I want to kill the damn dog. I swear I have so many murder plans for the dog ready, I even sometimes dream of leaving a bit of cheese on the counter or a tomato or on a really bad day a wheat bread slice.

But then I remember I haven't slept with my back straight since army and my road trips. I don't know what it's like not to have to fight for my pillow space. I cant remember a time when my bed wasn't so crowded I sometimes wonder how we managed to have kids.

So all in all, although my evil murder plans helps at times, the pure joy I get from seeing my husband suffering more since the dogs give him zero mercy keeps them alive. He bought them both own pillows as Christmas presents in hope he could stop sharing his with a russel with a bad breath and a Gs with a nasty habit of hogging his middle space and pushing him to the bad breath russel makes me a better person (or something).

I'm so disappointed. I worked so hard on an uber-sarcastic reply to a dumb post someone started asking if getting an M4 next year would be pointless because the G82 is coming out a year or two later.

Then the mods deleted the whole thread... because of how dumb it was.
