      You are right in that "taste" is completely subjective. I guess my initial post should have said.....In my opinion it looks tacky, but that is merely my own personal opinion and preference. Since it is his car and his money, he can do what he wants, albeit if I did have the money I would not have bought that car in the first place.

      You don't have to defend your pots. We all just learned that Jader is into the bling-blang-blong skeet skeet look of chromed out cars.

      Hey, I wonder how many of the anti-chrome folk in here have rabidly defended purposely-rusted body panels or pointlessly low hellatyte nonsense?

      I can count myself as one of the people who has not ever defended a scene car. Hate to burst your bubble.

      Chrome car is dumb. But I bet these guys think it's tizzight..

      In other words, I did not say your opinion was "invalid."
      Then why do you feel the need to criticize everyone that is commenting negatively on the car?

      Would you be in here calling people jealous/judgmental if it were a mid 90's Corolla owned by a non-famous person?

      I don't see you in the DIW thread calling people out for making fun of tacky cars.
      Of course it's company policy never to, imply ownership in the event of a dildo... always use the indefinite article a dildo, never your dildo.

      I think its pretty cool looking. I would say my personal style is a bit more subdued/classic, but I wouldn't mind borrowing a car like that for a weekend.

      re: drive thru food- if you were that famous with his fan base I would bet your options for a normal lunch without being swarmed by teen fans and cell phone cams are pretty limited.
      The good news: I gave up on being one of the cool kids!

      So? What does that matter?

      I thought chrome bodies were illegal for road use because of the glare and safety hazard to other drivers...

      If I was Justin Beiber I'd die of aids by the time I was 18, and take thousands of teens and teen moms around the world down with me. It'd be the funnest genocide ever.

      I think a chrome Karma with purple under lights is tacky.
      If you would like to defend the aesthetics of the car, please feel free to do so.
      So far you have just called people jealous /judgmental and offered nothing of substance to the discussion of the actual car.

      So, how is my opinion that a chrome Karma with purple under lighting tacky malformed?

      Sounds like I struck a chord with the jealousy thing.
      Please don't put word in my mouth.
      You seem to enjoy posting excerpts from the dictionary.
      How about you post the definition of jealousy and then find one of my posts that demonstrates that.


      If you had struck a chord I probably would have responded with something juvenile, oh look, you beat me to it.

      Hey hey hey hey. I'm not saying it is what I'd do, but I'd sure as hell be lying if I said I wouldn't drive it. I'm sure the same applies to the majority of you.

      Just turn that underglow off and maybe I could deal with the chrome.
