That looks like vandalism/graffiti rather than a custom paint-job.

The car looks awkward and depicts loud and attention seeking ideas of the owner. No ways a custom paint.

The restaurant people had probably got this done this way to atleast attract eyeballs towards his restaurant.
I've observed that it is always parked right in front of the restaurant at most of the business times.

There is no way one can miss looking towards it while moving past the corridor.

I must say its a very "unique" idea to attract and increase footfall of customers for the joint too.

True, But why on earth spoil an accord for footfalls. There are number of other ways to do so..

@ abhijeet, buddy you can find people with "exceptional" ideas here in delhi. If you may recall, there are Accents, Ikons etc where in people use them to sell clothes/t-shirts and shoes by placing their stuff on the entire car. The idea is very weird but still to each his own.

Dear Mate, this fortuner i believe was shown on the forum earlier too. The front resembles to a trout fish. Even the fish is better looking than the car. Rear lighting is to a extent is ok. Two tone interior seems loud. There are many shades of blue which would be better then this blue. Still the video has the host boasting and overwhelmed about this "Delibrate Catastrophe" and trying to garner admirers for this car and I doubt the worth of this vehicle to the cost you mentioned.

If you look closely, its got the side steps like the one on SUV's. BTW I took this picture while waiting for the signal to turn green.

God knows why such horrendous ideas are implemented by the owners. It should now be called as "Wagonnova" or "WagoneR". Not only its weird but technically many a times these guards mount extra weight and pressure on the car which is not good for it. If it is a shady quality then it wont be able to take any big hit on it and by chance if its broken then the front bumper also will be mis-aligned from the position.

Sounds like it's been aptly called a 'spoiler' :-D

MUVs and the tall hatchbacks look better with roof rails than with spoilers. The small sporty hatchbacks look good with oversized spoilers, but not everyone agrees - some people think it looks like something used to hang clothes out to dry. Sedans are better suited for the lip-like spoilers. A lot of folk would disagree with me, but when it's a matter of aesthetics, everyone has his/her own opinion.

Hi mate, your view is well-taken by me and you gave a precise definition to aesthetic sense of people. Agreed, to each his own. I too have a City Ivtec 2011, and have placed a re-made spoiler of Type Z honda on it. It's not too high though and i feel its good enough but others do opine to the contrary. But its ok, i respect their ideas.
