In this case the modified lancer thread. But take a closer look, it's a little whacky although the car doesn't look that bad.

Suppose I want to post nice looking zens etc. Let me guess, layout of the tail lamps or what looks like a brake lamp on the boot?

For Zen's start a new thread if there isn't already one for that.

It's not the tail lamps they are actually decent LED ones. The alloys are also pretty good.

The boot spoiler yes little odd but look a bit close you'll realise it.

I'll wait for a few more replies before disclosing.

The red thing can't make out whether its a brake lamp or neon tube or just a sticker. The dicky certainly seems to be out of shape. Specially the centre and little to the left. The glass to the left of the number plate seems to have cracked. But I guess what you are wanting us to look at is the positioning of the antenna.

Manikjeet spot on. The red is not paint but complete stickers. the entire sides of the car are stickers.

Mclaren, the antenna is the OE lancer antenna and none of the glasses were broken.

The red thing on the dicky is also a sticker.

You can easily make out the silver gaps and the sticker isnt even a single piece, you can see various joints.

I was shocked when i saw it.

cost effective way of changing your car's colours. you could even have a different colour every week.

I don't remember how many of noticed but in the swifts modified thread I had posted a few pics of a red swift with white roof. The whole white is infact a sticker. I don't see anything too whacky about it. It looks good besides you can still peal it off when you want to sell the car as stock. Remember repainting will cause a drop in resale.

Sticker on teh roof one single piece will look good. Not if you have it on the doors and you can see the shut lines. Imagine opening the door and seeing silver in the door frame. Also since the curves are more complex they don't use a single piece. it will be several stickers and you can see the joints.
