OK, so "formulaic" isn't wholly bad !

You know it by heart : Xzibit goes to view one of the worst car wrecks ever, and makes jokes about it. Xzibit drives the disaster to the West Coast Customs, to have even more jokes bout it. A brainstorming session with suggestions to make a bling bling of a ride out of that wreck. Then the car transforms from rags to riches, the car's owner goes bananas, and takes his "ride" to his or her friends to go bananas too !

It never changes; being like The A-Team of the 2000s, whereas "formulaic" is the only fate. Some points assure that it isn't a coincidence; like how the cars' owners are always a 20 something girl or boy. But what the heck ? Why would I complain ?

Actually, the formulism of the show is compensated by some elements. Firstly, the clever hosting. Xzibit is the perfect host for such a show. Despite his swearing, which I hate, he has lovely presence and forever fresh jokes. Let alone Mad Mike; who sometimes "performs" himself as a character, which works highly.

Secondly, the "pimping" of the car. The creative thoughts of the show's team do impress. Maybe so excessive at times, but all along different. It's just the matter of many screens in the car's truck which I have never liked or understood !

And thirdly, the car's owner. Many times it's a sexy girl. Well, a good sight is needed every now and then !

Add to that, positive part of the formulism itself; and I mean the forever golden idea of changing to better, or advancement, which we all desire to see, not for our cars alone, but for selves and lives. Doing this, every episode, for free, in no time, diligently and richly has to affect you directly and yet deeply, to feel good, about something ruined gone fixed, or feel that every ruined thing can get another, very lucky, chance; which is the ultimate feel good of all !

So, "formulaic" isn't wholly bad, if only filled with the right elements. This show will live long, as much as it doesn't apply to "seen one episode, seen them all" !
