TrackandTuner.com loves being at the track, and we feel that most tuning parts should increase your cars potential. Yes, some parts like the carbon fiber aero parts, interior etc. is purely for looks but it doesn't restrain the performance.

Big tuners like ABT, Edo Competition, AC Schnitzer, Novitec etc. all improve the performance and the looks of the car. That is was we like, tuning to go faster.

Cars like the BMW M5 and 850I by AC Schnitzer where real show stoppers.

I also loved the Porsche GT2 RS by Manthey. Without upping the power and with some very delicate performance and handling tuning they managed to crush the Nordschleife record, well done.

There is another category, called show cars. While we appreciate the effort, time and money, I cannot stand the looks of these cars. First of all airbagging your car should be forbidden. No car should sit on the ground, but that just my opinion. These cars are so heavily tuned that the performance is affected. They can not be normally driven and are only used as show cars.

For instance I love the red BMW M3 e30 DTM style, but just raise the car please. Put is on some nice KW V3 suspension for the looks and handling.

I feel a car should be driven and tuning should be done for looks and performance. 

What is your opinion, do you like the slammed look?
