BRakes look awesome. Wheels are HOOJ (how must it drive???). Spolier isnt too bad, same for lights but I dont like the front valance, painted grill or sideskirts. Just my opinion. How much are those brakes, I got told around £1200!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?? That right?
I am trying to get a bit of feedback on the parts fitted as some of them are imported and not our own design (ie. lower front spoiler) and I am still unsure about a couple of the parts. The car is soon to be coming of the road for a completely new look.
everyones opinion will probably differ.. facts are facts lol, but, opinions are like arseholes.. everyones got one...
Me ??....... imho.......
the grill is too max power - read.. young, typical, boyracer ..
the rear spolier is..... as above..... it looks better without...
the wheels are superb, but totally impractical for normal use
the Brakes are kewl, but not needed as the std are SUPERB !...
The side skirts are,,, ok,, but the original look is FAR better.
the exhaust...... I cannot believe some people.. Why the FCUK would you want to add a bit of pipe to the back of a car that has been carefully lost in the design thank god..... ?????????????????.. I mean.. cmon.. ???.. perhaps we can have a man with a red flag as well ???
By the power of my mighty Exhaust tail pile I will prevail !!
Sorta immature Super Hero mods...
The key to modding the new clio is in the design of the Super 1600... the rest is...... just......... too sorta........ boy racer muppet...
I like it... Its a show car for Ktec and I think it will do that job well. I dont think its too over the top, the lowered look is much better although Im not a fan of big wheels. The silver grill gets rid of the nasty plastic look it has as standard and the spoiler makes a nice change.
Have to admit that I would have left the rear clusters standard too but overall it gets the thumbs up from my corner.
but we have to remember that K-Tech is a business and modifying cars is big business.
The way I look at it is - take the best car available in the range (ie) 172.
MAX IT UP
so that all the teenage boys get erections over it and than go and spend all their money with K-Tech trying to get their 1.2 etc etc.... to look the same.
We might not all like the car but if we did surely the whole world would be driving around in the same thing. BORING!!
I have changed a few things on my 172 that I felt needed doing - I have put on a new exhaust and a different rear spoiler as I felt the back of the car lacked something and looked exactly like any other - so in my eyes I have improved my car.
The wheels are nice, as is the suspension drop....but as Captain said, hardly practical for everyday use. The brakes look superb, but the standard ones are more than adequate! But then I spose this has to be a show car for K-Tec and therefore a little mad.
Cant say I like the styling at all. The front spoiler and side skirts look like theyve come off a Nova and dont suit the car at all. The rear wing is not bad but again, its way too angular in its styling and doesnt compliment the original styling of the car. Overall, the styling appears to be going down the MaxyP/Jap-stylee which appears to be the current trend.....each to their own!
The front grille is not a bad attempt but looks rather tacky in all that shiny stainless. IMHO a far better replacement grille is the Steffanson one, which uses high-quality meshing, much like that used by Audi/VW. How about developing a grille along those lines K-TEC?
I like the side skirts and the rear spoiler. again the front grille looks cheap(doesnt seem to fit to well which isnt helping the cause) i tend to agree that a mesh one would be better. Front spoiler is nice bit impratical for where I live (toooooo many speed bumps)
As for the zhorst. got one like that myself. Old one sounded puny. (each to there own.)
Like it or loath it gets people talking, which is what a show car is supposed to do.
Thanks for the feedback so far. As a couple of you have mentioned it is a demo car for us whcih means we have to put as many new parts on one car as possible to show what we offer, even if it does mean a couple of parts may look out of place.
We have acouple of more parts to go on the car before it comes off the road for a complete makeover ( Joe, I think you will like the next look) and once that is done we will put the new pics up for you all to look at.
