2 and 5 look cool.
I want to mod up my car a little when I get one, but getting insured on a modded car when your under 21 (and male) in the UK is a bitch, insurance companies overcharge so much here its stupid.

The thing that -really- bugs me, is that if I was female, I'd be paying ?1000 less for my first year of insurance. Damn all those boy racers who keep smashing their cars up :thwak:

Agreed.
Don't vent the hood, that car doesn't suit it.

Maybe you should focus on improving the performance of the car and not the cosmetics?

I don't see what's wrong in trying to make a car look nice (subjective, of course). Trying to make it look "fast" however, is another matter.

agreed


its all part of the plan
planning on taking out the cat conveter and adding cold air intake...
being such a light car those things can speed it up quite a bit

i'm trying to do as much of work as i can on my own

here is mine now
Image

there is slight bubbling on the hood where washing fliud squirters are and that makes me want to get a new hood... and i figure if i'm going to do that i might as well do it all ya know? that way i repaint it once

I would be more impressed with a standard car with no frills that can beat out a jazzed up car that was all cosmetic.

So would I but if he is tuning his car for performance then there is nothing wrong with also adding some (tasteful) aesthetic modifications, no ricer crap though ;)
