One of my friends has an early 2000s TDI Jetta and he wants to put a bigger turbo on it just for the sound. I told him that's retarded and he just says I'm jealous of his car. He also plans on putting it on bags to stance it and bought cheap ebay halos and painted his tow hook red.

I have heard so much stupid shit in high school from people I can't even type it all especially in my auto classes for example this kid claimed he sold his e39 530 for 19 fucking grand (this was like 2-3 years ago) and is going to run 30lbs of boost on his civic and do a whole entire drivetrain swap on it few months later he rolls up to school in a Cultus
