    Could look quite nice, (not going of last pic) I would personally remove the green, get a RS grill, silvervisions, colour code and lower it. And DEFO remove the dub, and monster sticker. Get some carbon fibre vinyl wrap for dash strips.

    Take a look at this thread, some nice cars in here and gave me a lot of inspiration for mine.

    Welcome to the forums, unfortunately this car wont be to many's taste. I personally would remove the DUB badge, and the green front grille. Replace it with an RS grille (don't paint it green). I beg that you don't go through with the photoshop.

    Please don't do this to you car :worried:

    Could live with the side strips and wing mirrors green if you want something different. But please ditch the rest.

    wheels are in the process and i already have the paint for the calipers, the wing mirrors are a definate as well :smile: grille i am hunting for one atm but not sure whether to keep my current grille or paint the rs one as im accustomed to the grille being green. the bars down the side can stay standard, and the stripes arent a definate yet...

    Calipers are ok. Side strips and grille just look like you had some paint left you wanted to use up.

    and as i say the strips can go, but the grille was painted before anything else...

    Change everything thats green on the car to black, get rid of the monster sticker/DUB badge then it would look better, then just some sport mods...job done.

    If you do the green thing to your car your girlfriend will leave you.

    I kinda like it, I think the photoshop is abit to much but I like how it's 'different'. Wack some coilovers on it and it would improve it 1000 times.

    Wheels and front diamond background look good but I'd say don't paint wing mirrors, don't put strips on and don't paint the side strips green either.

    Also the biggest must is take that dub badge off. Nothing like dub.

    Gf looks alright aswell :tongueclosed:

    ahh thanks :smile: wouldnt give them :/ haha

    but you reckon it would look good if i got a black rs grille, had the wheels and calipers done, and the wing mirrors then kept everything else as is?

    as i said to theduck mate the stripes and side strips can be lost but the wing mirrors are a definate same as the wheels, and im definately getting coilovers when i have the money as they are a given to finish the car properly

    thanks shes my angel :smile:

    no no no no no! i dont like being negative as im sure this is your pride and joy but there is a reason why the folk on here buy normal renaults and make them look like sports. its because it works and looks ace when done properly :smiley:

    I don't understand what it is with people putting monster energy stickers over their cars?!

    If that was mine (the car), I would remove all the green, get a sport grill, change the wheels to a decent set of 15's, remove the tints, remove all the stickers, fit silvervisions and put a set of standard rear lights on it. OR stop wasting my money on it and save for a 172 + insurance.

    Lastly bit of a random pic of you and your gf next to your car? I assume you posted that to show us how fit she is?

    EVERYTHING greeny said.

    look around the forum, just dont do that photoshop

    also seen youre other thread,
    no ones against personalisation.

    just people on here know what looks good, theyve done it for a lot long than me or you.

    I know a lot of people like Monster, hell, I have 2 cans in the car at all times (and an M on the parcel shelf), but exterior Monster M's, logos e.t.c. make you look like a tosser. I'd keep it subtle, keep the 16v on the side green, and the badge, and you'll have a more subtle car with hints at your love of Monster. Oh, you can keep the interior panels green if you want, cause that's your space to improve/ruin.

    the monster thing is 4 parts.. one the drink is immense, two they sponsor motorsports which is cool, three its a cool logo, and four its a good colour scheme.
    not seen or heard of silvervisions :/ the rear lights are standard but i smoked them so they wernt sooo bright red... and iv taken this as a project because i like modifying cars and i want to have it now, i dont want to wait forever to get a 172/182 ..

    and in response to the gf thing.. its purely because they were the most recent and best pictures of my car so far, it just happened that we took the photos while on a day out together as she is a photographer

    fairplay thats your opinion and im toning it down abit atm im going through ideas with people but that pic was a first draft basically, but the wheels are already in progress and im painting the calipers and wing mirrors shortly though i may just do the 16v on the side instead of the full strip and the badges are already done.
    also what do you mean if i want? its my car and i have already done the interior and it is a massive improvement on the blue that came in the car.

    I dunno why I put if you want, I meant more like you're not gonna get 'marked down' for the interior :wink:
