    Help my friend ID this car!

    Somebody drove up to his house, stole his mail. People are scum.

    Any idea what this car is? The tail lights are totally throwing me off...

    I thought that at first too, but kinda looks more like a coupe to me.

    It almost looks like it has chrome housing tail lights and a contoured wing.

    Pause the video at 6 seconds, it looks like a sedan.

    Someone else suggested 2001-2003 Civic?

    Hmm... thanks for the help.

    I paused and zoomed at several parts. In one still of the rear, it looks like the tail lights are fairly large and square on the inside edge (more like the civic). it also looks too stubby to be a 6. Whatever it is, it has a body kit and chrome tail lights.

    I'd vote civic before 6, but only just. It's pretty low res.

    Yeah. 480p is the best we can do here, unfortunately. Blah.

    No that's definitely a Mazda6. First generation.

    But the rear end is all wrong for a first gen 6.

    I also looks a little like a first gen Lexus IS. Especially in the rear end.

    Ok, Mazda 6, body kit, after market chrome tail lights, and probably a wing.

    ----------

    Well the rear doesn't look like anything, but that's because it must have chrome tail lights.

    I don't think it's an IS because this car looks FWD. Look at the overhang over the front wheels.

    I'd say Mazda 6. In my past experience anyone who ones that car doesn't deserve to be alive.

    You know, a friend of mine has a nice 6, and I enjoyed driving it. It's nice inside, too. I remember you saying something about the people who usually drive them being douches, but I've never found that to be the case. Lol

    Hehehehehe tis true, as I only know one person who has a 6. He is such an (insert worst combination of expletives imaginable) that my frame of reference is off

    Seriously though, that kid, he could be burning to death and I'd use the opportunity to roast me a hot dog.
