Re: got car back today

there has been quite a few cinqs featured in mags

-3 featured in revs one being hippycinqs
-Tony mathews cinq was featured in max power years ago
-Tony mathews now works for fastcar so his cinq gets featured every month in staff rides

surpriseingly you seicento lads are letting the side down as there has only ever been one seicento featured in a modding mag and that was the yarris kitted black one in fastcar.

Re: got car back today

a feature in fastcar, revs, etc... doesnt really intrest me, although i have spent so much money modding the car, my car wouldnt even come close as being feature material, a banged up mini would have more chance

these mags are looking for something out of the ordinary and overly stupid

but saying that a new interior is planned lol

Re: got car back today

i was told by neil at REVS that they basically look for a car that stands out in a crowd and a car that will make a feature worth reading like Hippycinqs car which i loved myself and so did revs

i doesnt always take money most of the time i think it takes effort unless it goes garages for all the work.

ive spent 2500 on my car including the car which sounds stupid as its only an 899 valued at 700 in parkers price guide but for that money ive got a sound system, nearly full body transformation if i ever have the energy or time to finnish it, full interior change, alloys and exhaust etc it all adds up.

i think the thing that makes a feature worthy cento is flip paint as all the three cinqs that were featured in revs had it

Re: got car back today

ive spent 5k easily on everything apart from general maintenance, it includes 1k spent on install, 1k on bodyshop prices, 1k on body parts, 1k on exhaust, wheels and induction kits, 1k on various other crap

i dont tend to stick with the bits on my car for long, you should see my first attempt at modding it

Re: got car back today

when all said done you cant take the money with you when you go so why not enjoy it while you can i go college in the day and go work at night although it tires me out running around it gives me a good wage which means i can spend on my car.

Lads i speak to tell me im sad as i spend my money on car but in my way of thinking ive got something to show for it other people go out boozing up to three times a week and literally piss it away.

Re: got car back today

Flip paint is old hat now, the cars you see fetured are mostly OTT affairs IMO anyway.
