    ^That was before, and still is, pretty much a summation of my feelings towards this car. A lot of hard work went into that build. Wasted work and parts, IMO, but that's just my opinion. because it's not something I would ever want to build.

    That said, I agree with varg in that the automotive enthusiast culture has it's cliques and I don't usually like the SW products, or share their points of view very often.

    Right... most just say. Eh not my taste. To each his own and let it be.

    Here is more on the parts car build.

    I've never seen a car hurt someone so emotionally before.

    I think someone had a rough holiday and is taking it out on the interwebs

    It's just my opinion, you don't need to understand it or agree with it. Originality and personality can be done without ruining a car's driving dynamics for a trite look (muh low) or intentionally rusting it. Purposefully making a car look bad or worn out is lame. A true honest rat rod or a junkyard save like a roadkill car is interesting because its wear is natural decay and it hints at the car's story and past. There's something genuine about it, in that case the car is a survivor, trying to mimic that aesthetic by weathering and rusting artificially is unoriginal and false. You can even see my remark to this effect in the beginnings of this thread - I quipped at the irony that the look of the car went from fake ratlook to honest now that he rebuilt the burnt shell. Everything after that fire is saving an otherwise trashed car so the initial news of it was positive to me, but the car got so much hype and so much fanboy dickriding only to turn out to be the ornamental subject of a nearly unwatchable video which uses so much jump-cutting and so many effects in an effortful attempt to be edgy and cool. It all reeks of falsehood and like-chasing, I mean come on the guy who made it saying stuff like "we turned the BMW game upside down" when he first rusted the car years ago is just laughable. No dude, you just pissed off tight assed purists and turned a repairable and actually fairly nice car into rust and shiny wheels, not impressed. Then it got burned down and you chopped it up and made something I actually thought was pretty cool, until it turned out to be what I've seen here after getting hyped up to a huge degree over its dry sump system, "500hp" race engine and fancy suspension.

    A car's customization is a subjective reflection of what the owner wants, and any time a negative opinion of something like this hypemachine comes up the fanboys can't just let it be and accept that not everyone is going to smash that like button and retweet. This isn't grade school and teacher isn't going to step in and stop the mean people who don't agree with you and praise you. I can't abide the part of the hobby that endlessly chases a silly exaggerated look at the expense of the function and performance of the car whether they be ricers, stanceboys, donk drivers or brotruck douchebags. They all have the same goals and say the same sort of stuff. I'm on the other end of the spectrum. If people don't like my car and people don't look at it and hype I'm good with that, I build for personal enjoyment and performance, I put a build thread out to share with like minded people but I don't care about getting hype, likes, retweets, views, whatever. I'm not going to try to convince people to like my stuff or call them haters - I like what I like and I'm not chasing approval. I've been on the internet a long time, I'm just tired of attention whoring and hype.
    Are you ok?

    I get the feeling Rusty was more of a build for the fun of the build, not so much a usable finished product. I prefer functional stuff, and it would be cool if Mike would make it a little less race car and a little more street car so he could actually drive it (I get the feeling this is something he may do in the future based on a few comments he's made), but if not, whatever, still a cool build.

    This thing is the most overrated custom car of all time. Two years ago we saw an extreme rebuild of a questionable hyped up stancebox into something that at the very least looked like it had the potential to be interesting and a fast and well built car, but here we are today watching a video edited by a person who appears to have malicious intent towards viewers of this "race prepped" car driving around a bay for some glamour shots. Sure some huge amount of work went into the car, but at this point it has been nothing more than an ornament for stanceboys to call people "haters" over despite much hype over its performance potential and a slew of shiny race parts. I'll revise my opinion of it upwards if it ever does anything interesting such as actually being fast on a track, but for now the stancefans will just have to accept the fact that someone doesn't have to be "upset" "mad" or a "hater" to dislike their silly and barely functional cars.


    If you actually took the time to talk to mike he has driven and tracked it but he prefers the other e28 he just got done building. He tracks that one all the time.
    Im also not sure if he has a trailer and haul vehicle. The other e28 can be driven to and from the track. Rusty cannot. He told me he had the car idling in the parking lot and a cop actually stopped in and said if i see that on the road I’m taking it.

    So many jump cuts.

    The video is downright hard to watch, so many jump cuts and effects. It's like the guy who made it just discovered how to do a jump cut and use the effects board and he thinks it's the greatest thing in the world.
    The funny thing is that this is as far from being a "dapper" build. Actual fabrication and thought went into it, while most dapper car "builds" are an airride set up and some wheels.

    That being said, I can understand why you're upset about it.

    Most likely edited by someone with ADHD. I almost had a seizure while watching it.
    Having said that, they obviously put effort into the car, and the trailer it needs to get to where it's going.
