    You do know that they do that to be ironic right? Those cars are never driven above like 50mph and have rev limiters set super low to facilitate throwing flames out of the exhaust pipes. External oil coolers just seem to be asking for trouble, if not legal than just plain ol' common sense dictates that sending all your oil through an easily damaged cooler mounted directly on the front of the car is just asking to dump all the oil and spin a bearing/throw a rod.

    Just my opinion, I'm not going to try to tell someone else how to modify their car.

    In terms of asthetics, not my thing. It just looks sloppy to me on an otherwise very clean car.

    That is certainly a mild bosozoku car. Not too bad really. Like I said, I just personally don't like the external oil cooler, but too each his own.

    crazy asians....;)

    I'm still undecided if I like them of not. They look great on the rally cars, but I kinda like the stock way with the headlights down coolgleamA

    Ditto Rick, without the correct blanking plates and mounts it doesn't "work" for me.
    Way easier & better looking to fit Corona lights or mod some other light to fit,
    eg BMW could work nicely with their elipsoidal lenses

    One of the things I like most about my cars is the stock grille/light setup -
    apart from the cutouts in the bonnet it looks asif the car has no lights

    Yes, with the lights down, it has a "Darth Vaderish" quality to it, especially if the car is black.
