They were cool because they were a performance car thing, but now everything can do them and they’re drastically uncool. They sound like shit.
I actually think they’ve changed the way people drive these cars. What used to be about holding a gear and revving out, is now about mashing your foot until it farts then letting off. It’s what I hear from Barkers Road out my window which I like to keep open, it’s obnoxious and it makes me Very Angry.
