Hi all, just a quiry really, ever since someone described my car as 'Chavved up' I cant help but notice that most the modded cars in my area are not driven by your stereotypical chav. And there are no Novas I have seen with fake dump valves!

They just seem like normal everyday people, who do not share any attributes with chavs really, in fact most of them dont even wear hats of any description.

So the question is, if you saw a modded car in your area, who would you expect to get out of it?

this might not work, as peoples definitions of "chavved-up" differ :p

Most of the Car chavs must be from up north :p a better class of car modifier comes from Northampton obviously :D

Seems like it. Although I did see a mahoosive spoiler on a corsa the other day, but it was on the M1, so it could be from/going anywhere.

ITS A FRONT WHEEL DRIVE!!!!

Very rarely see a poor attempt at a modded car down here, all may not be to my exact tastes but they are good none the less.

Most of my friends drive modded cars and none of us are chavs :p

I see lots of Modded Corsa's, Saxo's, Clio's, BMW 3 Series's and the Golf MK II's are on the rise again.

Saw a Ford ASBO outside work last night and I think it was a really nice modded Honda of some sort :)

east mids. derby.
near me is all the lads in the year above me from when i went school. saxo,306,mk1 punto,mk2 golf gti,corsa,escort....

only the corsa ott with the combat kit and all the gubbins. the rest just lowered alloys exhaust and subs etc in. oh a ghey green side lights on all of them lol

then there my punto sporting and my bros corsa sxi both standard apart from my angle eyes and his smoked headlights. (both cars got factory standard alloys on too)

but the lads round here arent chavvy they just normal...i guess cause the chavvs dont have cars they got their clapped out bmx's innit

The crappy modded ones are genrally driven by crappy dressed people IMO i.e Chavs :D
But most of the nicely modded cars in my area are driven by respectable guys and some girls. I think the reason why they are so associated with chavs is the fact that they would love to own one but can't so they knick them instead :D

Mine is the only one in my village :eek: But go into Carlisle and there are plenty, a fair few chavs with ******-lights and dodgy Corsas with ironing boards attached, you get the point. A lot round here are rich, spoiled, mummy's boys who still live at home, parents insurance, don't do any work themselves (I scared one by suggesting he debadge his car himself with his mum's hairdryer ;)), again you get the point. But there are some nice ones who are normal people :D

it's mostly chavs in corsas... or fiestas.

I've seen 2 modified mk1 Puntos and they were people like me. So the normal-ish people have taste around here it seems (y)

I voted for a fair mix. Here in Tamworth on a Friday and Saturday night you can see all the chavs with there modded cars parked at McDonalds. Its usually alot of mk1 golfs and subarus and a few novas & mg rovers etc etc. But latly ive been seeing this orange modded bravo there and they are definatly chavs in that(n)

But latly ive been noticing that there are alot of normal people with modded cars (mostly business women actually)

I wear a shirt and tie to work.. this time of year you cant really see it as i wear a flease over the top. plus my cinqi not exactly modded... yet :p just lowered it today.


When I had the blackun going to work was fun :) it is odd seeing a smart person driving a modded car :D specialy such a little cheeky thing :p

Do see quite a few bad examples in my area to be honest. most are golfs with lexus lights and huge wheels with loads of rust or things falling off etc. was a blue nova around a while back with blue tinted headlights and more bits falling off heh. must say though thatthere are alot of chavs in my area but still plenty of "normal" looking people in modded cars.

The black golf with red interior from pimp my ride UK is from my area :eek: :D

lol, good one keep it up (y) If find it rather amusing but also makes me think i dont wanna mess with them. I think id rather take on a chav than a business woman in a modded car....
