a car's look vs. Engine

Ok so i understand guys and cars. But what i want to know is, is it more important to have a nice looking car on the outside or to have a fast engine on the inside? I personally like the outside, although i can change my own oil, thats about all i know about cars, but looks on the outside are very important to me.

It depends on you personally. I do not like all the bodykits and big wings and stickers on cars. To me it looks hideous! I race cars and I am also into them and work dedicatedly on them. I'm more about having a clean stock looking car, yet being very very fast. To each it's own. But being in the car scene.. the people who are into speed and going fast do rank and cut on the people who are all about show and no go.

I find that I have to agree with you about body kits, wings, and stickers. Performance is the most important aspect of the car scene. Looks don't hurt any, though. By that I mean looking well cared for. I like to see a car that reflects the owners pride in it. Don't you?

if i had to pick between looks or just engine i would pic engine. It would rather have go than show. If you car looks bad but its powerful and fast people will still respect you.

My opinion on this question is to say that both are important to me. What good is it to have a nice looking car that runs poorly? On the other hand, a great running car that looks poorly is not going to get you any "Nice car" comments. A nice looking car that you can't go anywhere in because it doesn't run, isn't going to be much use to you, either. If I was forced to vote for one or the other, I would have to say good running is more important to me. Does anybody else have an opinion on this?

Performance tops my book. If you want an attractive car just put some bodykits on it. All show but no go.

Engine as more bhp as posible.You have the looks but if your car does go fast it's for nothing.And i hate people who drive slow to the city just for people wathcing their car.

It depends on what you are doing with it. If you are just driving around town, definitely a nice looking car. If you are racing or showing off then you need a fast engine.

thats a hard choice i like a good looking car for when ime going round town slow when people can see me in it but i also like a powerfull engine to leave othercars standing i think i would have to go for the engine over looks could be fun when a totally rubbish looking car can leave all the flash powerfull ones standing ide just have to have blacked out windows so they couldent see me when going slow
