Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

it's cuz so many arsehole honda guys think their cars DO run 12s.

there're a good amount that are serious tuners, and that are really great guys overall, but it's the few bad apples that ruin the bunch.

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

I dont understand it personally but from what I've seen on other boards, specifically nissan boards it is because everyone has one and they are so common. I have known a few honda tuner drivers and they were quite arrogant although I realize this isn't the majority.

People must buy them for a reason. There are lots of them on the road and they aren't exactly cheaply priced compared to other rivals so honda must be doing something right.

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

Hondas are great cars, honda owners are the problem. If you drive your honda like the every day driver that it is, than thats fine. If you put a 3 foot aluminum wing on the trunk and call yourself a road racer....thats where the "hatred of hondas" comes in.

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

Don't be dissin the wings, yo, it creates tyte downforce. Also whereas any other application CAIs net 3-4 whp, civic CAI gets 20 whp + 40 whp for headers. This car is just too powerfull and people are hating coz they jaelous yo.

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

I'm 99% sure you were kidding, but it still drives me crazy to see huge rear wings on front wheel drive cars. Especially if they have the stock front airdam. If you're driving so fast that the air is pulling your car off the ground, which wheels do you want to put the downforce on? The ones that provide 100% of the power, 100% of the steering, and 75% of the braking, or the ones that are basically just there to keep the back end from scraping against asphalt? Putting a huge wing on a Civic is like putting oars on a Lear jet. If you need to use either of them, you're already screwed.

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

I dont hate imports...I think they're nice...Jap cars are mostly better on gas mileage and its a good value overall...its just that some made it into a ricer car....put on big wings and muffler tip that can suck your head into it...

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

i'm in my early 40's. when i was a kid, all things japanese were deemed cheap and shoddy. and in many cases they were. but over time they improved tremendously. some people still have that in their mind. and if parents blurt it out, kids follow.

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

i've had four hondas before gettin the G.. i had a civic, accord, accord, and integra.. they have the potential to be very fast, but i liked them because they provided the best gas mileage.. they were pretty quick, but having no torque really does suck..

Re: why do people hate imports ESPECIALY honda?

i have a honda family most of our cars are honda or acura. i think they are very reliable and dependable. the fit and finish of the car exeeds most domestic and sometimes even european cars. i just recently finish my lease on an accord i ended up buying it back from the bank because i love it as my wife's everyday car. aside from the regular wear and tear the car is a great commuter. just yesterday i dropped the car and the wheels will be arriving this week. that's about as ricer my accord will get won't put any other fugly stuff on it. i guess another ricer honda will be out on the streets. to be honest with you i don't really care if people hate honda's. other than replacing my timing belt and water pump that is the only time my accord has ever spent in a repair shop. now many domestic cars can claim the same? btw i drive a 91 integra for my daily commuter it has 200k + miles and still going strong.
