What if I Traded the LS…?

In the midst of all that has happened over the last few months, I’ve been playing with the idea of giving up the LS for something a little more practical. Kind of dumb, I know… I said that when I traded in the STI too. The STI was a “race car” and I couldn’t drive it in winter, so I got the LS with the mindset that it was huge and roomy and had tons of space for everything I needed and more. Then what did I go and do? I bastardized it by bagging it and put 21’s on making it useless for winter, too. Which brings me to my next thought – what if I just got like a hybrid or a swagger wagon? In my head, it’s genius because it’s fuel efficient, I’m not paying for an $80 gas trip every week and who even mods one anyway, right?

Wrong. I ruined the daily driving capabilities of all the cars that I thought would be untouchable. Conclusion: no matter how smart it sounds in my head to trade in the LS – it just won’t work out. I’ll end up changing something that makes it less useful than it really should be and I ultimately could’ve just kept the car before it.

With that said, I did play around in photoshop a bit to see how much I could “ruin” it. I use that word because people will just look at me and say “you’re stupid as shit for trading in your LS for that and modding it”. But they can’t say “that looks like shit” because it really doesn’t either.


First on my list of choices is a Prius. I know what you’re thinking. “A Prius?!” You can’t even deny that this gas-sipping taxi looks sick with the Tommy Kaira kit on Meisters. Very aggressive.

Second choice would be the new Sienna SE’s. This chop was sloppy since it was my last one, but you get the idea. No matter what choice I would have gone with, the wheels would always be Meisters. lol

My third choice was a CR-Z. It beats my whole idea of practicality because it’s a 2-door, but a Mugen equipped CR-Z would be awesome for a daily. I’d slap Meisters on it too.insight

Last choice was the Honda Insight. However, I didn’t actually think of this until JC suggested it. I’m not a huge fan of the look but it’s still sick. With or without the Mugen kit. I didn’t end up lowering this one but it still looks great.

At the end of the day – it looks like I’m sticking with the LS for a few more years…
