Default I think I have an inferiority complex with my car

This might sound weird, but I feel like I have an inferiority complex with my car...in other words, I'll see other cars around and think they look very nice, but then look at my own car and just think it looks plain/unnoticeable. It just doesn't seem like there's anything about it to grab any attention appearance-wise, except maybe the obviously not stock exhaust note.

Do I feel this way only because I see and drive my car every day? I have done some subtle exterior stuff (taillight tint, smoked markers) but not much in the way of appearance because I do like to be subtle and tend to spend money more towards performance. I'd like to do a little more exterior stuff but not sure what direction I want to go.

Yeah, its just because its yours bro. To the dude in the civic, you look like a rock star. Dont worry, just be happy with whatever you do to the car and make sure whatever money you toss at it is money well spent.

Follow the 10 Commandment's, and you'd be ok....

Exodus 20:10 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ***, nor his mustang, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

get some wheels of your choice and lower it as much as you can safely for the area you drive it.

I agree with Rudolph. Wait until you see it driving around from the outside. Takes on a totally different perspective, makes you appreciate it much more.

When i get bored i ask my gf to take a drive with the car while ill follow with her civic, i alway tell her: go easy on it girl. First thing i see her do everytime she get on the highway, she pull it hard and even make the rear bounce on full throttle, damn italian girl, but i do love to see it pull away with the sick sound it do etc.
