Justin Bieber needs better friends ... or at least friends that are better drivers if he's going to keep loaning his cars out.

Bieber's pal Lil Twist got pulled over again while driving one of Bieber's rides -- this time, the 'Right Here' singer's trademark whip, his chromed out Fisker Karma. It's clear that Lil Twist wanted to be seen driving in, but maybe not by the cops.

TMZ reports that Lil Twist was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for making an unsafe lane change, but the California Highway Patrol officers let him off easy. The officers cut Twist a break and let him off for the lane change, but instead cited him for tinted windows ... even though it's Biebs' car.

If you'll recall, Lil Twist is the same Bieber buddy who was driving and pulled over in the singer's Ferrari when a paparazzo named Chris Guerra was struck and killed trying to snap the scene. We don't think this was the birthday gift Biebs wanted!
