    for styling = /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/vomit.gif
    for weight saving = pointless

    Just my opinion

    I'm particularly fond of the local cruising types who take their normal steel bonnet then paint it black for effect...

    i looked into it a while back before financial doom hit me. Expensive, not everyones taste but id do it if i had the money to do the rest of the bodywork to compliment it.

    How old are you?

    It sounds like you are trying to turn your Audi into a Halfords special LOL

    Next it will be neons and spinners.

    Where's Pimpmyaudi when you need him?

    I don't even think they look all that on Skylines either to be honest... One of the bosses at work has a couple, and he put a Carbon Fibre Bonnet on one... Didn't look too hot, and the other day it flapped open on him while nailing it along. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I think cars with carbon bonnets look like they've had a crash and can't be bothered to paint the new panels!!

    My opinion of course.

    Ok, don't get me wrong here I hate the idea of leaving it unpainted (would look like my girlfriends' brother's clio, that's got one black door on a white car!). But wouldn't it be a really big weight saving? Even if a very expensive one.
    Why does carbon fibre buble when you paint it? Why does the Macca F1 (and F1 cars) not have bubbled paint work? Or is it a hugely expensive process? Just curious.

    A bonnet is not a heavy item at all! few kg's tops. A CF bonnet will make bugger all difference to anything in the performance department.

    So looks. When painted, theres no point, when unpainted, it looks like its not been painted yet.

    And it depends on the thickness of the gelcoat to whether or not it bobbles or not. a thick gel coat will provide a smooth gloss finish which will be fine to paint over. unfinished carbon fibre, will, (here comes the word!) fiberous finish!

    well for the info of the "cocky" ones , SHE is at work

    and as for the "pimp my ride" comment, this coming form someone with a TV headunit and a bright yellow car ........ok then :roll:

    i dont see what the big fuss is about , she asked a question , DIDNT ask for your opinions on the bonnets,

    as for they are a waste of time, its more of a personal preference than anything else, i wouldnt mind one for my car, but i cant justify spending 300 + on a bonnet, but people who do its their choice,

    if you have nothing constructive to say about it dont reply, simple as, i thought some of the more long going members would have that attitude, but maybe not

    Lads, looks like we've hit a nerve!

    I'm sorry...far be it for me to ruffle the feathers of some poor sensitive soul...

    At the end of the day...this is a public forum, and a place we use for light hearted entertainmemt as well as a bit of mild (occasionally slightly more than mild!) ribbing...
    Don't take it personally...

    There will be those who agree with you about them not being completely rank...but to be honest, I think you are likely to get a negative reaction to such a suggestion from this forum.

    My advice would be, if you don't want to see negative comments, don't post questions / statememts that are likely to incite such comments.

    We're only having a bit of fun...no harm done, eh?



    A couple of things I can't help wonder though:

    What has having a yellow car got to do with someones perception of 'pimped up rides'?

    What is so 'bling', 'rude boy', 'chav', or 'pimp' about having a decent head unit with sat-nav / TV facility?

    to be honest, i couldnt give a [censored] what people think, ill get one eventually but not on a standard car. Everyone has different taste, thats whats make us individual and i think with the right bodywork and paint job that it would look good. Far too often on sites like this and many others the minute you mention a modification that another user doesnt like you get ripped to pieces. I had it when i joined and said i had a superchip, not an AmD/jabba etc etc and people slated me for it. Who cares, its what i have and what i want. Yeah sure i hate a lot of peoples cars and opinions, like pimpyaudi bloke and his chrome thinking. I dont like it but fair play if thats what he wants then go for it. People need to step back and be a little more sensitive when it comes to other peoples car, let them make the mistakes as thats what modifying is all about. We all learn, i have had 4 induction kits, 10 dump valves and 2 suspension setups. To cut this rant short, what people do to their cars is not for others to sit back and be abusive, if you dont like it fair enough but for [censored] sake be a little more polite about it, people spend thousands modifying and it does hurt to see people being abusive towards their pride and joy.

    Thank you.


    If I had a Centurion or similar unit I wouldn't be too bothered about your comments, but it's a quality Alpine DVA unit with Sat Nav.

    Also so what if I've got a yellow car? How does that affect my judgement or taste? I wanted to be different. That's why it's a one off life style colour.

    People that know me will tell you that I am a perfectionist and I don't do things by half.

    Im not falling out with ya at all, im merely stating people should be a little more considerate towards other peoples future plans and be a bit more polite. A simple 'Im not keen on them' rather than the endless list of 'no no no no' or 'pointless and looks ****' I have been on the receiving end of [censored] like this all too often on this site for having my own taste and opinions, like me wanting an atmospheric dump valve, bigger exhaust, **** colour car etc etc etc and to be honest its rediculous. Im happy with my car, you can all have your opinions on how [censored] it is, or will be in the future but all im asking is for users to be a little more polite with their opinions.

    Ok maybe on reflection my "Chav" comment was a bit harsh, and I can see where you are coming from by being a bit more polite.

Yeah sure i hate a lot of peoples cars and opinions, like pimpyaudi bloke and his chrome thinking. I dont like it but fair play if thats what he wants then go for it. People need to step back and be a little more sensitive when it comes to other peoples car, let them make the mistakes as thats what modifying is all about. We all learn, i have had 4 induction kits, 10 dump valves and 2 suspension setups. To cut this rant short, what people do to their cars is not for others to sit back and be abusive, if you dont like it fair enough but for [censored] sake be a little more polite about it, people spend thousands modifying and it does hurt to see people being abusive towards their pride and joy.

    How ironic!

    Anyway...not aimed at you Stuart...but to the general populus:


    I will continue to speak my opinions whenever I see fit...everyone has the right not to read them...to ignore them, or to react to them. I don't really care...

    I am as proud as the next man when it comes to my cars...and I get just as much flak about my search for handling perfection as the next man does about adding pimp timts, chrome wheels or a carbon bonnet.
    But, I'm sorry folks...I've been insulted by professional idiots for years (at work)...so a few negative comments from people I don't know really aren't going to ruffle my feathers...I suggest a few of the cotton wool people out there start adopting a similar attitude!

    People are sensitive about their car...lighten up!

    This place is a fine source of entertainment...we have all views, and it's the diversity that makes Audi-Sport.net genuinely different to many of the other forums - in my view.
    Let's not forget that, in addition to information and guidsance, we come here to be entertained.

    Jeez...if some peope think it's bad in the public forums...they should probably avoid the nights out or drives!
    Get a few beers in on the nights out, and nothing is sacred...
    Now, that's when people really might get upset!

    to be honest, i couldnt give a [censored] what people think, ill get one eventually but not on a standard car. Everyone has different taste, thats whats make us individual and i think with the right bodywork and paint job that it would look good.

    Everyone is different, we all act different. You reply in, for example, my thread. Im going to read that reply, therefore i cant ignore it. This works both ways, if you dont like the topic, dont reply.

    In some ways, this is a good thing - although not, I admit, if you feel you are at the receiving end!

    I guess it all comes down to this:
    It's a public place...you post your comments and expect others to do the same. How these comments are worded, you have no control over...you get what you get....good or bad.

    But doesn't that add to diversity and entertainment value of this forum?
    I'd say it does...

    Hi Back from work now and im really disapointed with the site. I am a SHE and frankly i cant be bothered to share any of my future plans if this is the reaction. Mark you need to think before you type... I am certainly not a chav! i would have bought a saxo rather than an Audi and so far not many people have been very helpful with my question. I dont think i will be attending any meets as I dont think you lot have a big imagination and are very narrow minded. I dont mind critism christ i work for the police! but if you hate my plans that much dont read my posts. Ive been on loads of forums and im afraid i found my peugeot site PGAC alot more friendly and before you say it, it wasnt full of chavs just friendly peeps who accept peeps are different. Im not putting lexus lights on the car i just asked what people had done! and even if i was i dont expect abuse! yep put your opinions down but theres ways in doing it. sorry to chirp on i was trying to be polite in my last replies and keep the thread funny even if people were taking it a bit seriously.

    any i cant be bothered talking about the bonnet anymore so thanks to the peeps who had constructive advice.

    LUCY female!!

    To be honest with you, i dont come here for the entertainment, i come here for the love of my car. If i want entertainment id go play yahoo games. If i wanted to have abuse thrown at me id buy a saxo (my personal opinion) We all have our feelings, you may not care what is said, others will and im sure there are many members who are on here that wouldnt like a mass of people going in their thread slating what they have done or plan to do. I suffered, i did as you say and chose to ignore those comments. I do what i do for a reason, for me and not Mr Joe Bloggs from an internet site to sit and get aroused by. However, all my above replies are in no way referenced to me, its a general observation of what seems to be happening here to other members like the lady who started this thread. I have learnt to take most peoples comments and ignore them, some still hit a nerve without a doubt, not everyone has the same reaction and many will be offended.

    Have to say, I have had a look at many other forums and to be honest, they put me to sleep!

    Yes this forum can get a bit arsey at times but, hey, it wouldn't do if everyone always thought the next mans car/mod was ideal would it? Wheres the fun in that!

    I too have had to put certain feathers back into place after differing opinions on here but that was part of the learing process!

    Anyways, I've just found that I cant get insured for a Skyline GTR and I'm depressed.

    Someone start another 'heated debate' to cheer me up!

    My comment was for entertainment and to obviuosly state my opinion. If you go around taking everything litraley you would be better of not touching or "modding" your car.

    Enough Said. Free forum. Free world. Free speach and all that eh?
