@Pinky1984 Nice huh...there's just something about it that I can't put a finger on.

Maybe I'm biased, after seeing stanced this and stanced that for so long, the only car that was ground-breaking in this feature was the Civic imho (oh maybe the Bimmer just to keep things fair).
Drifting (back in the day) used to involve skill and wasn't limited to just RWDs. Today it is strictly RWD, and besides power sliding and big money, there isn't much to it imho.

@Brett Allen @apex_DNANot just that...rolling fenders, raping your undercarriage, stuff "that'll make them hard to put back to standard".

@Brett Allen @apex_DNASame goes for everybody's favorite - the stance fad. It's just as bad, if not worse.
Bodykits and neon lighting on a Civic? Do you time-travel much, sir? That trend has died like 10 years ago (or earlier, depending on the locale).
Here we go again...

With that kind of logic, just get a newer car and outfit it with what the latest trends demand, so in 20-30 years time it can at least be deemed as period-correct.
I think what "saves" it is the whole package...imho those "questionable" modifications wouldn't have cut it on their own.

Apparently Scion tC sold as Toyota Zelas overseas is available in AWD...and you do know FWDs are used in rally, right?

FR-S platform?! I want whatever you're having...must be some good ish. And Subaru still makes FWD cars, last time I checked.
It has happened...it was a matter of time anyways.

eBay is a given, althought you can still find legit parts/tools, with good deals to boot. Just gotta know who you're buying from and learn to work the system to your advantage. Originally I was referring to parts made by "reputable" companies (Japanese included). A good start imho is knowing the OEMs for your particular brand/model.

@CZAR It is one.

The problem I have with the Honda crowd is that majority of them bought the cars simply because said cars are great performers from the factory, but as soon as those cars wear down they turn to cheap (as in quality) aftermarket parts assuming they're killing two birds with one stone. Yeah at first you feel an improvement...over what? Over word down factory parts? Another problem is using race parts on the street and then bitching why they don't last as long.

I like to think of it as a right of passage.
Wow...you guys have some rusty cars.
That was before I read the article, now I'm just scared for my own car.

Maybe so, not gonna argue with that one.

You've been more fortunate than us mere mortals then...haha
I did see a BCNR33 ...twice!! One of them was a Motorsports Dynamics car. A drift ER33 coupe and the aforementioned Neil Tjin ER34 sedan.
Just finished reading this...what an article!!

@majik16106 @Pwain @apex_DNA I think it's safe to say that a good majority of SH readers ARE from America, and to us (SH's initial target audience, circa 2008) the BNR34 is still the ultimate unicorn.
You pretty much nailed it.
I have yet to see one...I did see an ER34, once.
BNR34 - Japanese car version of a unicorn.
And WTF are you talking about, acting like 4-door hatchback are some novel idea?

Did it ever occur to you that maybe some of them ARE trying to relive the 80s, like Honda owners do with the 90s, and old Toyota owners with the 70s and so on? You must be living on the East coast then, because I just don't see that many "customized" VWs period.

And sedans are limited to 4 doors, is that what you're saying? Hatchback, fastback, sedan, hardtop, etc. - it's a bodystyle, and not how many doors it has. If you wanna get technical, a hatchback should be called a 3-door wagon.
"But the Civic Type R concept really did outshine everything. With the
perfect choice of the volcanic orange paint which shone under Geneva’s
ceiling starlight, it even put its bulked-up WTCC sister in the shade."
Sister?! More like a brother...Civic was always a HE.

@AdamBezzegh They're not building cars for you...those cars are unique to them and that's all that matters.
UK-made only...I believe USDM/JDM Civics still run the multi-link setup.
