Neat yes, but a little boring maybe? Don't hate me for saying this guys:
BUT as it is all new Skodas, Volkswagens and Audis looks the same. Now everyone's modding them in the same manner too?

Anyway are the skirts on this car deliberately painted grey towards the end?

I think the owner has painted the crease line. The alloys are stock as well. Not sure how it qualifies to be in this thread.

I don't think those are stock alloys man. Save for those side skirts (might look better with higher imaging quality) the car looks neat. Just saying that this is boring and IMO, not tasteful.

Just thinking aloud here, must one change the meaning of Tastefully Modified here to exclude a modification on a car that looks like the one everyone else is doing?

Whoops! I guess you thought I was referring to the A6. I wasn't. I was referring to the black Laura.

The same car has been featured a few pages back. A different stance of the beast

Wheels look so much inspired from 991 GT3.

A spiced up Ford EcoSport from the house of Pete's.

Following are the changes-
1. LV4 Borbet Alloys
2. Mirrors from Muth Systems
3. Custom revamped to bring 110 BHP Power
4. A set of Bilstein suspension.

The Ford EcoSport looks mind-blowing! The silver colour on the ORVMs is a great addition to the theme of the car. The 17-inch alloy wheels look smashing, and so does the entire car. The car would look swell with projector headlamps and smoked bezel but looks very well even without that.

Also got to see what a difference (positive) the absence of a ton of chrome makes at the front. Great!

OT: Doesn't the antenna in the last picture (with full front view of the car) look bend/tilted? Is it something with my eyesight or the angle of the picture?

The Ecosport looks awesome.

Adding more from 'Mods own Country". I got this from an FB page called JAG Modified, Changanassery. I do not have any further information on the mods or the modifier.

A lot of nice detail on the EcoSport. But I think the best part is the silver finish on the top of the ORVM. Compliments the bumper really well.

Amazing! Love the 800! Done very well. ORVM on the left side would have completed the look.

Ford Fusion from Bigdaddy Customs. Barring the rear spoiler, other mods looks nice.

Umm, no. IMHO, the choice of palette used for the interiors do not go well with the black exterior. However, the DRLs have been integrated nicely as is the grille. To each his own.

Clean the sidewalls of the tyres, people! I wonder why many forget to do that when doing such proud photo shoots. Dusty smudgy sidewalls of tyres are as ugly as unpolished boots on a military man in a parade. They bother to wipe the car clean, but the boots remain dusty.

Yeah, it is a good mod barring the rear spoiler. The interior colour scheme could've been better.
