We found a little page on the Sport Compact Car website that allows you to virtually pimp your ride, provided you own a Nissan 350Z, Mitsubishi Evo, Honda Civic Si, Mazda6, Acura RSX or the perennial tuner favorite, the, uh… Volvo S40. The Car Configurator allows you to choose wheels from five different manufacturers in three sizes, the suspension (as long as it's made by Tein), brakes (as long as they're the Wilwood Big Brake kit), and tires (as long as they're either Nitto's NeoGen or NT555). Okay, maybe it's not so much a Car Configurator as a way to see what your ride will look if you only buy products from Sport Compact Car's advertisers. When your ride is ready to descend from the virtual lift you can even view it from three different angles to see how silly it looks. Is it just us, or do the wheels on our ride not seem to line up very well with the hubs? That's gotta make for some highway ride.

      Hmm, looks good but kind of annoying to use and you can't upload your own car or save your results. Anyone know of a better site that allows customization like this? If not, I may have to create one for our Exhaust.TV site. Puff

      This sounds a lot like the Tire Rack's wheel selection simulator ( http://www.tirerack.com ) - which has a whole lot more cars, and even lets you change the colors, plus lets you try out their full line of wheels. Granted, they don't have every car (you get a generic black car that kinda looks like a Saturn if you pick a car not in their database), but at least it's more than 4.

      I like the site but it needs more cars, lets said the Dodge Neon (first and second generation), the Dodge SRT4, the PT Cruiser both 4 door and convertible, Mercedes-Benz C Class and more accesories.

      There is also a site out there that allows you to do the same with various year Mustangs, but unfortunately i dont know the url off the top of my head...i'm sure you could find it via google.

      I like the convenience of that carrying handle on the trunk lid. Style inspired by roll-aboard luggage?

      All these cars are new! Down here in Tampa, I think the only cars that pimped are 5 year old Hondas, Nissans and Mitsubishis.
