    I frickin love your polo! Well done for pushin the boundaries!
    I was going to have the superman emblem on my centre caps, but I dont think an s3 could pull that off. A 'heap' of an a3 maybe :p but it'd prob be tacky on the s3.

    wow thats a real sleeper you had there:unsure:

    I dont think that'l go down too well on here, as i think most are into proper styling instead of covering it with stickers. Wouldnt be caught dead in it, sorry dude

    What everyone likes in terms of styling is different, but its fair to say that people into Audi's tend towards more subtle mods.

    For example Tomas, i dont mind the red and black paintwork on your old car, but imo the rear lights, spoiler and wheels all shout "halfords chav with a corsa/saxo/clio" to me. There is no coherence with the design, and it looks like you've just selected a pile of random parts and thrown them at the car without any thaught to the overall look. For instance you've fitted some blacked out headlights, which goes with the paintwork, but then installed chrome lexus lights on the back, which matches nothing. The bodykit doesnt suit the car either although it doesnt jump out as much as the other mods, again looking at the overall car, its very rounded and swoopy, but the bodykit has large flat expanses and the rear bumper has a very sharp curve at the top, so it just clashes with the rest of the body panels.

    IMO this is the biggest mistake that young guys seem to make. I can appreciate a well modified car, even if its not to my own personal taste, however often its not well modified, doesnt flow together and simply looks plain wrong, either because they've tried to do too much with too little budget ending up with an awful finish, or not looked at the car as a whole and designed the modifications to compliment the whole design rather than fight against it. They seem to dive in wanting to make a "one-off" and go totally mental throwing all sorts of tat at the car trying to make it look as different as possible, whereas some well executed mods would end up with a car thats just as unique, but just doesnt look rubbish.

    An old Corsa I had had the most money thrown at it out of any car I've had.

    I won't post pics of it, as these days I do think it was a bit much. Full bodykit etc etc etc.

    Although it wasn't your typical all show and no go motor, she had a Redtop in it running 210+ bhp after I had tuned the nuts out of it.

    Also, managed to fit an Astra MK2 digi dash into it, which was epic. I LOVED that dash, looked so so cool.

    Know a lad who has done soemthing similar with his front wing on a Polo. I quite like it TBH.

    End of the day we were all young once and modifying tastes have changed over time. But problem is most people follows trends hence why there are so many bad opinions about cars being 'different' these days.

    yeah... now looking back,youre right. black tailights and coilies woud do the thing.

    ^^^I like the wheels on it in the magazine feature BUT getting a magazine feature from a car you didn't build yourself is very low life.

    Stripes are cool mate!
