Default Anyone pimp out an XJ?

I have seen many pimped-out Lincoln S-Types, oops, I mean Jag S-Types but it occurred to me that I have never seen an XJ with spinner-rims, airbag-suspension, etc.

Anyone seen a ghetto-XJ and have photos?

Apparently http://www.j-complete.com/Gallerynew2.html pimps Jags as a business!

I really do think that the police forces of the world should be allowed to give the people who do these things to Jags a punch in the face. Hard. Nuff Said.

I like the 2nd, 3rd and 4th, the 3rd and 4th are called VIP cars, which is an asian Hong Kong thing where they slam big luxury cars and put huge rims with negative camber, just search VIP cars and you will see lexus, infiniti....etc

This is the website of the company that slams all kinds of cars. It seems to be a japanese website

These slammed cars crack me up

The negative camber is on purpose?!

A donk XJ would be ridiculous!

Those cars don't really look drivable - my 17-foot-long VDP has fairly-wide a turning circle as it is with the OEM wheels, those 22" rims look like they limit the car to going only in a straight line!

They are probably good jobs if you want:
1) People To Laugh At You
2) A Broken Spine
3) Not To Be Able To Turn
4) To Make Geoff Lawson Spin In His Grave.

I do not personally condone or participate in any of these activities, but I think they are interesting so I do know some things about them:

yes the negative camber is very much on purpose, people in some circles think that it is very cool and interesting to have the camber like that.

you can google stance nation, it's a website filled with various cars that have the camber as such

as far as the turning goes most of the insane camber and low ride height is caused by airbag suspension, which they use to dump the car on the ground for photo sessions and parking. when driving they inflate the airbag suspension.

Oni Camber (think it is translated as 'devil' camber) is even crazier than any of those pics. Google it for pics of cars that look like the suspension has totally collapsed

I googled it. One eye punched the other eye. threw up on itself then it killed itself. Thanks a lot! Now I have no depth perception.
