But those rims are for a turbo. Does this mean you want other people to think that you own a turbo?

Both of those shirts, especially the latter, are extremely common in Europe, at least when I was backpacking through there.

I'm alongside radix with this. It's like wearing a sports jersey. You're presenting yourself as a fan of the brand (or team, w/e).

they come standard on a turbo (not anymore actually)
but those are the only 20" rims for a Carrera
and the Turbo only comes with 20" rims..

which is?
obviously it isn;t a turbo and I'm not trying to pass it off as a turbo
the dealership offered them to me at no extra charge.. and they are the nicest rims

if I wanted to pass off my car as a turbo, I'd get the rear bumper I'd put a turbo badge and get the vents, and the front bumper, etc.. which I don't do..
the "turbo" rims are common on many Carreras as they are an option for it... an option MANY people opt for..
I am not bashing people who go for the M-kit on non M cars.. it is an option from the dealership :/

obviously I don't own a Ferrari and I'm not trying to pass it off as I do.
The salesperson at the puma store offered me a good discount on the Ferrari shoes,
like it was getting a regular shoe at no extra cost.. they are the nicest puma F-shoes.

If I wanted to pass off as owning a Ferrari, I'd buy a Ferrari with the turbo engine, the aerodynamics,
the front bumper (better come with one), etc... which I don't do...
The "Ferrari shoes" are common on many Ferrari shoe owner's feet as they are an
option the person wanted... an option people obviously opt for..
I am not bashing people who put turbo rims on a non-turbo porsche, I just think you're a dumbass for making this thread :/

I'd feel goofy wearing Ferrari gear w/o owning a Ferrari unless it's for a race or something.

C'mon, have more confidence in yourself. I wear what I want to wear. Dont care what anybody thinks or says. I have tons of t-shirts from different brands. They are just t-shirts; when they get holes in them they become rags. Whats the big deal?

All the girls I see wearing pink jerseys don't actually play for the Dallas Cowboys?! Damn posers.

I'd only wear Ferrari stuff to a race where one was competing. In public or even car shows, probably not. And when I do, it'd be a sponsor branded tee and that's it.

I love McLaren-Mercedes and would gladly wear their F1 shirts while driving my BMW. If I liked SF, I would do the same.

Wear your clothes, dont let your clothes wear you

I loved when the USGP was at Indy...gave me an excuse to be a drunken shirtless euro-trash wearing my Ferrari flag as a cape
