This has been an eternal problem for my ICE work. The Car is usually going for 'repair' when some detailed ICE work needs to be done. My latest upgrade was not stealth at all, so I informed all the uhhh... concerned parties (and actually borrowed some money off my Mom for the job too )

Nice thread. I love Q cars. It's like the automobile equivalent of "Actions speak louder than words."

Dunno about Monkey's Octy as I haven't seen it. All I know is that it's been seriously modded & that the alloys are stock, but painted black.

Care to share, Monkey?

Q-car??
Thats my type of car.
And the car I would choose is the Contessa.
Though I would like to have little bit of chrome on it, but not much. Oh!!, the body color would be either maroon or dark green(seen this color in one hindi movie).

Hey pals,, no offence but I like cars the way the company sells them. Reasonably good ICE or minor mods like alloys, tints or a K&N not withstanding. As much as i respect the passion, knowledge and enthusiasm of people and their "Q" cars, if I want more performance I'll go buy a better car.. If i can't afford it, i'll wait.. There is always something better in the market..
Kudus to Q car owners nontheless,, cause I still adore their love for cars,, dMH

Mclaren's Baleno. Except for a not-too-quiet exhaust, and some Hertz and Audison stickering, it's a normal car on the outside.

Harrie's Palio GTX is another mad thing. Though it does have skirts...

Sideways Lancer, Iceman's former Baleno.

I love Q-cars, therefore none of my cars have external mods. I consider alloys as performance mods unlike some people.

BTW, what is the opposite of Q-cars? Because that's what I mostly see around my town. Just talk and no walk.

Ricers are the opposite of Q cars.

Samurai, I doubt the the Mivec and MB 91 qualify. Both have bigger wheels (17" and 15" respectively). Both have spoilers and louder exhausts. And the Lancer also has a body kit.

Beautiful cars, though. Hope I get a ride in the Mivec sometime!

Yeah, but they are not over done, the spoiler is small and sweet. You'll notice the mod if you look for it. The inside is another matter altogether. BTW, that's not a body kit, but an EVO bumper.

Ahem, I have driven both...
