Does our discussion have to involve the article? Because I'd really like to talk about pie.

Pie is okay as long as it was made with the lord's love showered down upon me, hot, wet, and sticky, sliding down across my skin as I think about Jesus.

The first analogy is daft. Disliking 'stanced' cars is more like seeing a kid with the waistband of his jeans below his ass cheeks and declaring you don't like trousers.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Something tells me you want to have sex with Jesus.

I mean, if it's important to you that people you don't know must notice your car, then sure.

Getting the stance right is the icing on the cake, but takes as much planning as any other part of the cars build. Also what works for one car may well look ridiculous on another. For me it's about projecting a restrained aggression, giving the impression of compressed energy in the car. This can be as simple as a good lowering, but it also involves many other variables. When it's right it's right, when it's wrong...

Plenty of good examples here:

For more creative takes on it and much more variety of both base car and approach try pretty much any thread on here:

The amount of toe-in recommended by BMW for modern M cars is ridiculous.

Imgur is a blog site?

I never knew.

Or is it just the refuge of those booted from everywhere else?

Imgur has always been trying to build "community features".

Is it for stability? Toe wears tires. I run 0 front toe on the M3, it turns in nicely but occasionally vibrates on the interstate.

The pricey Euro mechanic I took it to last year gave me toe out in the rear even though I asked for toe in, it was terrifying trying to apply throttle while turning. Took it to a guy at the local Chevy dealership, did it for $50 less and actually met my specs. Made some people mad at the next event with how much faster the car was.

I don’t mind lowered cars, but I hate how it looks when the wheel is no longer centered in the well/recess.
