Modification of any vehicle is to personalize it. If you want a sleeper wagon that can run to walmart, take the kids to school, and run an autocross on the weekends, then a lowered Forester is a great choice. I see that you obviously have a strong opinion on this, but it is just your opinion. As a seasoned gearhead that has played with lots of different kinds of cars, I can appreciate good work done to modify a car, even if it's not my personal style.
And, be careful what you say here; you may hurt some feelings expressing your opinion in such a strong way.
