The only thing is that you should try not to get hit because you'll definately get owned.
i dont usualy venture into theese parts seeing as i dont drive yet only being 16 but i will say the lotus elise is a real nimble car and for a small lightweight car it is fast as well

They are pretty much street legal go-karts.

Check out this sig I created for the forum I'm active on. Too bad we can't have one made for this forum. We have a lot of talented photoshop people on here.



Here's the avatar I'm using because I'm a fan of the Transformers. I also have the Decepticon version too but I'm a good guy so the Autobot stands:



I didn't do any heavy mods yet, but I'm leaning towards an HKS exhaust or Tanabe. Both are very popular among the IS. Right now, I'm modding for looks. My next project is redding out the taillights with vinyl. It's an easy mod a lot of the other IS guys are doing it. It has a life of 7 years, but ehhh, what can you do? I'll probaby have another car by then, lol....

In the meantime, I just got these windows tinted. Ha, I'm still using my old screen name "TRDCorolla" on there, lol.

Hascet - I normally buy from Ford Racing dealers and specific companies. Usually I will just do a google search for the part I need and find the best price that way, but sometimes you just have to know where to look. My Borla exhaust retailed for around $500-600 but I got it for $350 shipped from a Ford Racing dealer just outside of ATL. Remind me of what car you have...

IS/TRD/Some Toyota Car guy - C'mon man, black them out. It would look HIZZOT! Also, HKS ftw.

Yeah if you're looking for speed, go with a manual one, and they can hold their own pretty well. It's not the hp, it's the torque plus relatively low weight. You can bolt a turbo on for like $3-4 grand and keep up with lots of stuff, while still having a relatively "cheap" ride. I realize 3-4 grand is a lot, but the things only cost like $13K brand new to begin with, so $17,000 car that spanks Mustang GTs? Yes, please.
