I saw a few photos in a magazine of a Supra with LED underglows and am wondering what you lot think of the idea?

You need to let go of the fast and furious part of you, start by changing your sig :)

It's as good as huuuuge sticker of your username on the back window. With some flames.

drill a hole in your fuel line and light with a naked flame.

Achieves the same results at a fraction of the cost.

Bad as in "yo blud, my ride is BAD", or "i'm embaressed to go to club meets as my car is so bad"?

Agreed with the sig recommendation too, you're just looking for trouble by quoting fast and furious

Just looked at your pics and it's quite a nice looking car. Blitz front is not to my taste or the VS sideskirts but overall it's a nice looking Supra. There is a line though in modding that you must not cross, it's a fine line at that too.....;)

It's your car so who cares what you do to it, although you must think about the knock on effects when it comes to selling it..!!

stick or no stick at the end of the day theres so many people with supras theres always going to be someone who dont like it, the fast and the furious films are enjoyed by millions and hated by millions. its your supra, you drive it when you drive it and no one else has to so whatever you want to do, just do it.

pezzler
14-05-10, 15:04
As said, your car is actually nice as it is. If you want to do stuff to it, how about something like and interior retrim, or renew the your suspension components, or upgrade the brakes?

Robzki
14-05-10, 15:07
upgrade the brakes?

ebay has some lush covers that go over your existing jspecs. with faux plastic allen bolts too. I'm after some myself, but I'm saving up for a cessna wing for the boot :(

Points taken and appreciated.

I get itchy feet every morning I wake up wanting to do something new to my car whether it be a spoiler, interior.. I don't know much about engines but I'd like to do some engine mods.

Honest answer, totally pointless chav crap. Sell the Supra and by a Nova, apparently they look cool sitting on top of a pale blue glow, but they also look good to me upside down in a ditch, so go with your judgement.

Led Underglows? That's the most ricockulous idea I've heard all week.

If you were to put some dragon decals on the side of the car though, it may help distract and make the overall package easier on the eye.

You haven't got to apologise. I'm only jesting. You do whatever you want, Whatever makes you happy. It is your car after all. life is way too short to worry about other peoples opinions. But that said when you do need help, There is a lot of it here. All you need to do is make sure you don't alienate the people that could give some very good advice later on when things break
