Nothing wrong with the driver. For what its worth I think the prius look good. At least he didn't do something stupid like flare out the arches or install a GT spoiler. I'll give him one thing, its unique and tastefully done. Yes, its still a prius, but the guy likes his car and is riding in style. IMO its the best prius I've seen.

Ugliest car on the road. I give the guy major props for making it so you don't throw up every time you get in it. If I had to drive one I would do something similar.

Why would you spend money to make sure that the entire car community laugh at you when they see you drive around.

I can out accelerate most of the cars with my M3... so can my CR-Z! I heard electrics/hybrid motors have a natural faster acceleration and at a constant pace than a convention engine.
As far as the guys taste with his Prius... I think it looks cool!

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

You think electric cars are slow?

I do think it's silly to make a car (that was built largely for economical purposes) look overtly sporting. It's completely contradictory and pointless. Effectively, it's like you are trying to be something you aren't. It's no different to someone sticking another brand badge on their car. By all means, everyone is entitled to pick any car they want, and everyone is entitled to mod it whichever way they want, but, have a bit of sense in doing so. Let me put it the other way, if you had a 458 Italia, would you put eco tyres and wheels to save fuel at the expense of performance?

I had a similar experience while driving my truck at a gas station a few years ago. These folks are showing a great deal of restraint....for me it was an old lady mouthing off. All I could do was laugh and ignore her.

The "environmental lady" is big enough to have used quite a bit of carbon credits just to feed her.

I wonder if that rear diffuser reduces lift... Oh wait! It doesn't go fast enough to create lift

wow what a cunt! I own a Prius. Please do not think all Prius owners are anywhere close to being like that. Its a great car to commute in. She must be angry at life since shes fat, probably single, with no kids, and 20 cats.

That's definitely a 430 from what I can tell. It looks like he had a slow start and (judging by the smoke) was experiencing a lot of wheel spin.

There's no doubt that the Model S is fast but this was a horrible comparison IMO. The Model S got the jump and the M5 was experiencing massive wheel spin. Not to mention, even if the Model S happens to be legitimately faster to 100 (doubt this very much) the M5 will freight train the shit out of the Model S after 100 and keep pulling hard to speeds the Model S can't even do.


That Wald IS-F inspired diffuser is ridiculous!
