      to play off of that --When you wont park the passenger side to a curb with someone else in the car so they dont hit the curb

      --when you air up the rear driving down the road and watch the reactions on peoples faces

      ..if you see someone on coils trying to drive stupidly low and than you drive lower than him with a push of a button.

      ..when the lights turn to red you brake a little harder than usual while airing up the rear and leave the car like that for a while. Than air it out completely to see people's faces

      When you are in 4x4 mode and some static smart ass pulles up and asks when you are going to lower your car then you air out and ask them the same question.
