2009 Honda Fit: Making It Less Adorable

I like the way our 2009 Honda Fit accelerates, shifts, steers, handles and reconfigures its rear seats. And most of the time, I am fine with the fact that this is a terminally cute car.

With those big eyes, and that bulging nose, I find myself wanting to give its quarter panels a pinch. Orange is probably the cutest Fit color, save for Tidewater Blue, and it's definitely not a good choice if you want the car to look anything but adorable.

A couple months ago, though, I spotted this black 2009 Honda Fit. I don't like all the modifications on this car, and who knows how it rides now... but the lowered stance and aftermarket wheels go some distance in toughening up the Fit.
