    What do you guys think we'll see more or less of over the course of the next year? We've seen lots of styles come and go over the past couple years.

    I think the whole stance thing is going to stick around, the air suspension crowd will never die and they all love it. I do hope the "so low it scrapes everywhere and I brag about breaking my oil pan" thing dies in a fire though.
    Wheel finishes will start to get more unique, like what Luxury Abstract is doing and fegmike's wheels getting plastered all over the internet
    I think we'll see a return to more "clean" cars, minimalistic cars if you will. Subtle body mods and color changes.
    Also we will continue to see VIP take off.

    What do you think?

    I agree...I hope this ugly wheels looking good thing dies too...ie fifteen52 tarmacs Ken block will be huge again for doing nothing any teenager would do with proper funds. Hybrids will rise and we will see more crazy HP cars come into production.

    hopefully matte cars and super epic concave die in a fire. although I think it will take another year for super epic concave.

    I think we will actually see more companies going for a little less HP and trying to balance out their cars more. Given that they have spent a good amount of time on aerodynamic research to improve fuel economy, I see them shifting their focus to lighter cars with a better driving experience that include the aerodynamics.. Even your average housewife seems to want a car that makes driving a little more fun now.

    I still like matte cars, and with manufacturers offering it now, I bet it takes a while longer to go anywhere.

    And concave wheels have been around for a decade at least. I remember seeing a set of 5 spoke anterras I wanted for my ml that were pretty cool looking
    The disease runs deep, relapses often, not looking for a cure, just another sick bastard to share it with.

    So sick of that shit, saw a range today with the most fucked up LEDs in the headlights, no pattern, looked totally random and just totally stupid, it looked good on the Audi, but now it just looks tacky and cheap and everyone else just looks like they are blatantly copying but never surpassing what Audi did

    I think demon camber will die. I see neon colors and graphics coming back into vogue. Face it, the 90's styles are back. Why not in the automotive world, too? 3-piece molded spoilers are due to come back whether stinger style or duckbill off the trunk. The style of eligible cars would support it, being ***** bean shaped and all. I also see a return to big stereo building at some point soon. Now, stereos and ice for the most part seems to be just for show, whereas there used to be a huge spl and sq following where sound was primary and the form followed. I see in the next few years people will concentrate more on the function than form.
