Thats why were more hardcore... they ride low becasue they can, we run static lows and have speed bumps, potholes and still manage it. Us is clearly bigger but the country size comes into that... forget about the size check the cars. Its about guys with cars that are run reg... low and rockin it. Not gargaged show cars, yh there nice but you aint takin it down the supermarket get 24cans are you...

Exactly. I couldn't care less about the price or parts or the size of the country. I want to see cars that get driven every day. That chromed MK1 for example, I know its not a US car but what was the point in it? He's spent all that money and it sits in his garage?

UK always. Yeah US parts/insurance is cheap but in the US cars have to conform to Bull s*** safety standards that kill the looks of UK cars, They helped Kill the Jaguar E-type, MG B and a lot of other cars!

Styling wise, US hands down... as nearly all the mk2,3,4,5 & 6 owners over here in the UK try to copy the US guys with the rub strips, Rear lights, driver lights and so on... But the US guys just refine their styling mods and very few of them fit UK spec bumpers... although a few of them shave the running lights...

Suspension wise US again... ok they have smooth roads which allows them to run air and static rides very low, plus the fact air-ride is so cheap out there... But we come close...

Overall scene I think the UK wins though even though the US is bigger in size the UK has more dedicated shows/events and is more recognised for it...
