well there are a lot of sick looking modified high end cars so maybe thats the arab taste,DC wouldnt have made it if nobody liked it

personally i am NOT a fan of DC, infact i hate almost all of his passenger car mods

but however we can be happy about the fact that an indian modifier is becoming popular outside india

i don't think i have to comment on the porsche but just really lost in one thought,was the SUV completely done and ready before displaying because the body panels look like it was stuck the previous night by some kindergarten student for the art class!!

I feel he shouldn't be allowed to 'deface' any car for that matter.

Is he popular outside India? Even if true I wouldn't be proud, I would rather feel sorry for his customers and their bad taste.

Yea, the Porsche is way too crappy!! DC has done some decent mod jobs but most of his work is too radical or freaky or weird in a very disgusting way!!

I'll tell you what. If car's have expressions, this one looks like it's just too shocked to react to what DC has done to it. And it's behind looks like a middle aged aunty's bottom LOOK AT IT!! (or maybe don't)

That is probably one of the worst looking cars i have ever seen.Who is the retard who went to DC for modification?Completely ruined one of the best SUVs in the world.Mostly some Indian guy living in A.D.AFAIK the middle east folks have excellent taste of cars.
