      This. They’re harder than ever to work on, more expensive than ever, and modifying them in any way is just going to be 10s of thousands of dollars thrown down the drain, especially when you finally go to sell your car and nobody at all is interested in the nightmare of a car you’ve created that’s going to be a hassle to get worked on if you’re not someone who can work on the car yourself because the car’s CPU will be doing everything it can to lock the mechanic out of fixing it because it’s modified.

        Car culture shifted a lot. Nitrous went out of style. They built the cars different with higher rpm and more horsepower per liter by changing the crankshaft and compression ratio on most newer cars. If you add boost pressure to an engine you have to put higher octane fuel in it and often times the engine will start to wear out faster and need more maintenance. The bright colors and crazy decals of the cars went out of style. Those body kits and huge spoilers started to look corny. After a while most tuner car boys grew up and realized that the amount of time and energy they were sinking into these suped up Honda civics and JDM 240sx could be better spent on a used car with fewer miles on it that had much better performance without needing those mods, such as an Infiniti g37 or a bmw.

          Street racing is as old as cars, but after F&F, cops made it their #1 priority with mass arrests, car crushing, changing laws to make racing a felony, etc. Even though most of the races were stoplight-to-stoplight at fairly slow speeds or out in industrial districts late at night. So now the only people street racing are brownoids who don't care about hurting people or becoming felons.

    Car tuner culture never died out, it's just the sex-spec style that died out.
    Popular tuning styles nowadays are VIP Tuning (suspension lowered so that the top part of the rubber is hidden behind the fender, most often via Air Ride, slight camber, darkened windows) and Sleeper (pure performance tune while keeping the exterior unchanged and "grandpa like")
    In Germany for example you still have several tuning events every year.

    Tuner culture died out because it's cancerous. I mean that too. It's a culture dedicated to taking cars stock, and then physically butchering them worse than a cheap plastic surgeon ruins 35 year old women in Hollywood. Cutting up panels, rolling fenders, wraps left on too long, body kits by people who don't save the original bumpers/fenders, engine swaps that were never meant to fit in the bay so they cut into the firewall, fricking moronic adjustments to the camber for "stance", ugly wheels.

    Tuner culture died because kids don't have money. Boomers could afford a house at 18, gen X could afford an apartment and a car at 18, millennials could afford a car at 18 while living with parents. Zoomers can afford an iphone to watch tik toks on, if they even bought it themselves.
    When I was a kid fricking everyone was getting their first car and then trying to customize it to one up everyone else. 2008 muh financial crash probably ruined that.

    Is tuner culture dead? I still see kids driving around with riced out shitboxes covered in bolt ons and stickers. The aesthetics and affordable cars are just different now than they were in the late 90s/early 00s.

    To understand it you have to understand that video sharing was relatively new at the time, and things like drifting were completely novel and exciting to most people. At the time where you were only just getting access to irl drift videos having it in movies was a huge deal.

    The kids who were tuning their cars in high school suddenly had taxes, rent, insurance, bills and likely tuitions to pay. Then mortgages, diapers, baby food, etc. Life happens fast.

    I saw the first one not on opening weekend, but the following weekend.
    There was a cop car parked outside at each of the three exits of the theater parking lot.
    Yeah, it was quite an influential movie.

      >18 years old
      He (likely) got held back at least once or twice, due to moving school so often and his general moronicness.
      So him being 20 in his senior year isn't too far fetched.

        They say he is under age unless they were just joking. That would make him like 15

          That might've been under drinking age, which, in japan, is 20.

            The director was probably in American terms. The context was he was telling girls hitting on him "careful, he's under age"

    Laws were passed specifically because of this movie which made it harder to both modify cars and race them.

    They were not a big deal. They were disposable then, and now nothing more but the spectacle of ancient memes.

    They were niche movies until Fast Five became a massive hit.

    Car tuner culture died because the fun cars are ridiculously expensive now and modern cars are not fun unless it’s a lambo or something.

    I was birthed in Poland in 1988 and didn't hear about Paul Walker until 2009 or so. Around when Fast 4 was released.I think the fast-series peaked with 5

    because all the 90s/2000s JDM cars are hoarded and expensive as frick so if you don't have hundreds of thousands to burn on hobbies it's not worth getting into.

    2fast2furious is great. It’s almost campy, but the cars were cool af and it was still primarily about racing, having cool cars, and having a couple of hot women around to look cool in your car in front of. Tokyo Drift was fantastic and everyone I know has seen it, so it’s weird to me that it flopped. The franchise went to complete dog shit after TD and became Ocean’s Eleven with cars starring Vin Diesel.
