Pimp My Ride

Xzibit and the good people at West Coast Customs make people's cars go from dirt to pimped in this 30 minute series. A pimped out car is usually worth $20,000 to $30,000. Taking car customization to the next level, together Xzibit, Mad Mike and the crew at GAS create unheard of pimped out masterpieces.

    Much to the chagrin of some of the people whose rides were pimped, some customized improvements, such as front-seat LCD screens, extra-large bass speakers, etc., were only put in for the purposes of the show, and had to be removed immediately after the show aired, since such customizations would run afoul of traffic laws or noise ordinances, the existing wiring in the car simply couldn't handle the additional electrical loads, or the customizations would compromise federally mandated safety equipment such as airbags and seat belts.

  • The show now takes place at GAS (Galpin Auto Sports) Garage instead of West Coast Customs with all new mechanics, although Mad Mike still stays on the show.
