Interview with a Car Tuner

Some people say car tuning is only a showing off.
Some people say it's a waste of money.
But he says car tuning is an identity.

I finally had a chance to interview with a car tuner (see what actually a car tuning is)

Tell me your early days being a car tuner
I love cars since high school and fortunately my dad bought a Honda Civic in 2004 for me. I tuned this car step by step from 2004 until now. At first I began to change the interior for my own comfort. In 2006 accidentally I met a friend who has an automotive club for car tuning, I joined it and put my self in it. That time I tuned the engine and audio system. I tried the next level in 2009, tuned the exterior: adding a body kit, tail, and changing the rims and other under carriage.

How do you define your style?
I call my style as Sporty Elegant. I designed the body kit myself at the very first place, to make sure everything is as I want. I get the sporty look without too much effort because Honda Civic's originality sporty look. The important thing is I try to tune my car as elegant as possible without getting rid of its safety and function, because I drive it for daily use. 

What does it take to 'build' your dream car?
It takes patient and of course money.  

Tell me more about 'it takes money'
Yes, you have to have some money to tune a car. But you simply can do it step by step. Don't get it rush. And if you buy original ones, you could make money of it in the future. A car tuning could be an investment too. 

Do you still want to tune another car?
Yes, I always want to tune BMW E46.   

What would you say to others who want to be a car tuner?
Safety has to be the priority. Find your own style, because your car is your identity, it defines your personality. And please use the original items. 

Thank you for the interview, honey! :*
