Why is?

Why is DA such die hard fanboys for stock cars?
And I don't mean stock cars like the NASCAR "stock cars". I mean cars that are stock. Like you would think a bunch of self proclaimed "automotive enthusiasts" would be all about modifying their cars but if do so much as touch a bolt for any reason other than to replace it with an OEM replacement part then suddenly every aspect of your life is called into question from your skin color to your sexual preferences. You're inexplicably made to feel like an outsider here if you dared to mod your car in any way.

    Most car companies have hundreds, if not thousands, of designers, engineers, and focus testers whose sole purpose is to design a car that people want to buy. As a result, there's about a 99 percent chance that whatever shitty mod you want to do was brought up in the design process and subsequently proven to be unpopular.
    The only real exception to this rule would be performance mods, but even then you often have to sacrifice some major selling points of the stock car in order to make significant gains

      There's also hundreds if not thousands of financial analysts and accountants whose sole purpose is to make the car as profitable as possible while also adhering to the 18 million various rules laws and regulations that they need to to sell it. The suspension has to be shit for nvh. The exhaust has to be shit for emissions. The engine has to be shit for efficiency. They need to make a boring safe car that Stacy can drive comfortably to Starbucks without upsetting her HOA. Once you buy the car, you're no longer bound by those regulations anymore. You can get stiffer lower suspension for handling. You can tune it to make more power. Get a high flow exhaust for better sound. Get wider wheels with better tires. But noooo. Pencil neck bean counters in an office full of diversity hires know better than you do. Why even think or be an individual when you can just let smart man in office tell you everything that's best for you.

        If you want to mod a car because YOU PERSONALLY think it looks better that way, then go ahead - you own it, so you can enjoy it as you wish. Just don't expect much praise from the average passerby, or even the average automotive enthusiast.

          >cares about what other people think

          Because resale value is lowered and some modified cars just makes enthusiasts look stupid
          A civic making 153 hp doesn’t need a 4 inch exhaust for example

          >cares about resale value

          Yes these are truly the opinions of honest to god enthusiasts. "No I won't modify my car because what if a pedestrian doesn't think it looks cool or what if I can't sell it for as much"
          Doing something you want to do because you want to do it and it just makes you happier? lmoa no way frick that.

            My car looks the way I want it to look
            IDGAF if ricers think it looks boring
            IDGAF if stockgays think it's ruined
            And I certainly don't look for validation by making shitty threads on DA
            If you can understand that mindset, then cool. If you can't, then you never should have modded your car to begin with.

    stock cars are good because theyre a clean base from which to build, you know everything is in the right place and you can follow basic instructions and bolt things on instead of dealing with someones Black person rigged bullshit

    somewhere along the way bring a trailer fricked with peoples minds and they started thinking bone stock examples of cars that have a reputation for what they can do modified are actually good. theyre following a heuristic that makes sense but for all the wrong reasons because they can't into critical thinking. most car guys slot in between morons and midwits, thats just the nature of a lower middle class to middle class aspirational hobby
