Has anyone noticed that the cars in the fast and furious franchise that have become beloved by the F&F fan base would be considered rice in the car community? 90% of them are bright ass colors, stock ride Heights and have obnoxious non color coordinated vinyls on the side of them and horribly fitted body kits and huge wings. Yet people still love them because that was the thing to do back then in the early 2000's. If you would've seen a bagged Lexus on some rotiforms back then, you would've laughed. Now it's the other way around lol

In the first F&F, every car except Paul Walker's Skyline was riced out to the max. Trends pass, new trends appear.

Personally, I'm a huge fan of the slammed scene. Not mexiflush or anything like that; a nice looking car, slammed on bags or coils with a nice set of wheels (Enkei, Vossen, etcetera) will always catch my eye as I drive down the street. It's not the safest or smoothest ride to have a lowered car but I enjoy having one.

I was thinking about the F&F movie series the other day. It's become cliche and overly boring to my tastes, I have absolutely no idea how they're still breaking the Box Office with each release. It isn't even about cars anymore and I can understand that; a whole series composed of street racing and such would have gotten boring in due time but their new movies? Complete and utter garbage. And they're set to make another two or three movies; I just hope people realize how bad these recent movies really are.

To each their own, of course.

that's because early 2000's car scene was very ricey. the first two films weren't that bad when they came out but they really didn't age well because of the outdated styling. I don't think any of the movies are really any good.

I agree. Even though Tokyo Drift kind of drifted (no pun intended) from the main storyline, it was still the last decent movie the F&F series has had and I've watched all the recent ones and I always end up coming out of the movie theater in a bad mood and regretting wasting money on a ticket to see the movie but oh well, I've finally learned my lesson.

Could not agree with you more mate, even Tokyo Drift didn't really cut it for me, the first 2 Fast And Furious where the best hands down, and the only ones I really enjoyed watching.
That being said I have yet to see the latest movie that came out, but I have heard many reviews saying it was not up to scratch. I'm in no rush to go see it lol.

After Tokyo drift I don't like any of them. they don't really make sense to me no more. The first 2 were the best though

Ya it's pretty booty it used to be all about them and just racing but now it's about the cars and money doing all sorts of crazy things those movies really changed.
