I know the owners of a couple shops and I'm sure they would give me a discount if I was interested in their merchandise. Does that mean they sponsor me?

and do you really think going around asking for free shit is going to get you sponsored? you're 17, drive the lowest model BMW available, and you don't know how to mod it. I mean you're driving around on plastidipped 16" wheels.

It's time to reevaluate your priorities and stop posting stupid threads on here. Usually people that post this many stupid threads and have <50 posts are the ones who are repeatedly asked to leave by other forum members
+1,000,000 well said kdbryce

Now I actually do know several people that are sponsored but they happily pay for their mods themselves and are under contract to use a company's name and the companies use their cars. I'm talking about you ship your car to a location and they use it to display their product because you drive a $300k car. Click the pic in my sig to go to my mod journal and see the 3rd to the last pic. Those are the kind of cars that get this. e.g. F430 Scuderia. Also you'll never see some lame stickers on these cars ever, they come off right after the show.

This isn't called sponsorship....
