Things you hate on cars

Hi,

I was wondering wots the worst thing that people do to their cars, that makes them look either chavvy or downright stupid, ill start it off, I cant stand those "Lexus" light clusters on the back of a nova, it looks beyond stupid.

Re: Things you hate on cars

I know alot of people who think a 20 mesh airfilter from halfrauds is an induction kit and will give them 20+bhp, anything pathetic like that. Rope light "neons", clearly not neons than are they. Something chav's wrap around there council house.

Id have to agree with decals, I saw a polo the otherday, Enkei decal on the arch... wolfrace rims, some teenagers are a sin!



Gold alloys look nice on imprezas, bout it though.

Re: Things you hate on cars

Shopping lists on cars that bear no relation to whats on the car, fair enough if its a show car and you are obliged to push there stuff as its on your car and you got it at knockdown to free, but putting a list of brands on your front doors when your car is nearly standard, especially if you list two wheel manfacturers neither of which match your 13in steelies is just plain sad. Also sunstrips that say 'motorsport' neon washes and pretty much anything that comes from halfords. At the other end of the scale cars I would love being mistreated for example saw someone run a trolley into the back of their jag the other day then exit the car park by bashing it over a kerb. I cringed for the car...they probably have enough money not to care tho but then again people would probably do that for my car when I pass them on the odd occasions I do visit 6k rpm...

MOT testers aren't fans either.


It always suprises me, to why youngsters spend hundreds, if not thousands on a decent first car, then ruin it by putting boddykits and naff alloys on. Why not save the money and actually buy a sportier car, with a better engine.

Re: Things you hate on cars
