    No... A real tuned car is a Nissan Skyline R34 Gt-R Vspec II, about 1000 hp!!!!! Or a Rx-7 GTC (about 600hp and only 800kg!)

    Tuning one to that much HP isn't exactly done too often. The car in stock form, with around 300HP is enough to turn heads and win races.

    The Skyline is not a practical car. I think that the people in this forum are referring to cars that are available in the U.S and not in Japan. A nice tuned car would be the 2003 BMW M5 with a Stage 3 Dinan mod kit in there. It already packs 394 hp at the crank with the Stage 3 in there would be close to 600 hp at the crank. Its a 6spd manual sedan with about 325lb/ft of torque. Its a torque machine, and the overall performance is sick.

    I like the whole tuner car era, but why would you put $40,000 into a Honda when you could get a Corvette???

    J_iceman,
    VWs do use metal bodies, except for the bumpers (of course) and bumper molding. I know this because I have had two VWs since 1998 and am quite into them.

    I believe it is saturn that is notorious for its cars being made of plastic, although they are supposed to be dent resistent.

    At any rate, I am certain that new VWs have metal hoods, trunks, doors, roofs, etc.

    And if you try out their 1.8turbo engine, you may have trouble dissing them ever again;-)

    -Evan
