Well TPIACE the whole point of the cardomain site (where the car is featured) is to put your car out there for critical evaluation
by the eyes of people who surf the Internet. The site even has a rating system for "exterior styling," "interior styling," and "overall vehicle." The site is all about appearance and judging the looks of people's (mostly) "pimped" rides. If you spend any time on the cardomain site you'll find there are few very "stock" cars -- or tuned sleeper cars.
Besides this guy isn't just some schmuck who decided to show off his car. He is using this car to advertise his "tuning" business, so it is even more valid for people to judge his car. If they like it, they can decide to do business with him, if they think it's a tacky abomination, then they can steer clear of him.
Personally I consider "tuning" hand tweaking the performance and handling, not just slapping on the same aftermarket parts that everybody else does. That's just herd mentality. I also don't think too much of nitrous kits. They're a little to fast and furious for my liking. They fall into that "all the kids are doing it" mindset.
As for liking "bassy" sound systems that's his choice, but the problem is most of these losers don't play their stereos at a volume where only they (and their passengers) can appreciate it. They usually turn it up to such a volume that it rattles the windows in my house in the middle of the night and gives me a booming headache if I happen to be trying to share the streets with them. As a convertible driver, I probably have a stronger requirement than most drivers for a powerful stereo, but I try to be very conscious of the volume levels of my basic, old radio. If I'm stopped in stationary traffic, the volume gets turned way down -- the exact opposite of most of these "tuners." Now admittedly, I can't prove that this particular owner is guilty of that practice, but I'm at the point where it's now guilty until proven innocent.
