(which i dont)
A god? No, but I know a thing or two about aerodynamics, and about how wrong your statements were. So, whilst I may not be a god, neither, ma'am, are you.

You have a body kit on your car already, so you saying "body kits that optimize aero are great tho they still weigh more than nothing at all" is meaningless unless you are volunteering to take off the bumper covers, side skits, and wing to save weight. Furthermore, saying "my cars not fast enough to use it" show's that you don't understand. Aerodynamics begin working as soon as you start moving. The effects are small at lower speeds, but designs can be made to optimize for any speed at which the air is producing drag on your vehicle. Aerodynamics serve to transfer force from one direction to another.

Properly designed and implemented, an aerodynamic kit could greatly increase the effectiveness of your vehicle at whatever speeds you choose.

oo daym.. its on!!! I got 10 on Brit!

yes.. im very thankfull i dont have an exspenive paint job yet. Thats why im not all upset over it. My car is daily driven over 150 miles aday. there isnt a week that goes by that i dont dodge or run over something on the freeways.

Thats why I'm getting a mini as a new daily driver. Once the golf has paint, it wont be driven as much. It will be my project car. The mini will have the bolt-ons

oh hardy har....I'll show you.

I'm fine with bolt on's but much prefer people who work to make their cars different outside of what is offered in the MOSS mini catalog. :p And i was really only refering to the styling part of car tuning....of course bolt-ons work for engine and suspension stuff....i'm not gonna weld up my own turbo setup or anything lol

It's also really messy! Heh. I've done a bit of fiberglassing, and I commend you Melissa for doing as much as you do. I always end up glueing something to my hands that shouldn't be there. hah
