I don't like the red stripe myself, it stands out but for no good reason really and it's a bit 1980's :?

I'm more concerned about the wheels; you'd have to be very careful near any kerbs :shock:

2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

I think that actually looks really smart, a lot nicer than a lot of 'sport' mods I have seen posted.

So far so good with kerbing them however my son did attack one of them with a hammer which I wasn't very impressed with.

I prefer the silver stripe to by honest. The red stripe reminds me of a 205 :D
