    Wow. You think that's bad you should search for "Clio v6 replica". Some of the cars that turned up in threads on Cliosport were laughable!!

    i think if you remove all the stickers, all the stick on chrome strips, the gash rear lights, spray black the mesh, stop driving it round and round in circles, tlkin lyke a twt nd bein all gangsa bludz, you could get away with it. maybe loose the side skirts as well but each t there own. i have seen worse kits TBH.

    as bhavin said, you can kinda see the car sobbing!

    anyone sent him a link telling him his cars famous yet??

    As the cost of A3's and S3's come down they become more affordable for chavs to buy and ruin. Over the next I fear there's going to be more and more of these monstrosity's appearing

    ... just seen the vid, the car at the ends even worse, lol!
