I would say street. Not too overdone. Subtle yet striking.

Street for me. But even that is overdone.. I just need alloys and rest performance to blow up other cars... TOTAL Sleeper. I dont even want the exhaust to make noise but it should work like the noisiest exhaust lol

If you're looking at it from a market point of view, I would say Street & Subtle would work best on our market. The other two are too radical for our market as of now.

I personally prefer the stock, sleeper look.

Hmmm........... Let's see...

1) Wild n Out -- For maybe just showing off or in a full-fledged street race if the aero aids really make a difference...

2) VIP -- For that corporate party, in a Seven-star hotel.....

3) Subtle -- Should be a daily runabout without excessive performance mods

4) Street -- For that neighbourhood Saturday night Street Race...

5) Sleeper -- For showing wannabe boy racers (who drive only to showoff near colleges/cafes) who's the boss......!

But then i'd need five cars.......!! So wild n out is not so necessary... also a compromise can be reached between subtle and sleeper..... so to cut short, i'd prefer VIP (if i get a corporate job) and a street and a sleeper...

If i wanna make just two choices, then it's VIP and street...

If just one choice, then it has to be a sleeper but with a set of chrome alloys and jet black paint so it is (VIP, subtle, sleeper, street and slightly wild) at the same time.....

Interesting thread !

I too would prefer a Sleeper or Street look ...

Just wondering why do many people like a sleeper was asking this to myself too ... but couldn't come up with a satisfactory answer ... any thoughts

Maybe the sleeper can do something which no one expects from it...

Also, was wondering muscle cars will fall into which category or will it be an additional category ... I like their styling a lot ....

Subtle for me. Some of the street designs are nice, but decals don't work for me.

I like the styling of the orange car in street with a few changes of my own.
