Never seen this! I wonder what will happen if a cop spots this and takes it seriously

(1) Seat covers in animal prints - ugly! I agree - makes one puke!
(2) Irritating reverse horns especially when owners don't know how to turn them off while entering building after midnight!! Big annoyance for residents just trying to get some sleep.

Regards,
I have a Piranha central lock system which has 3 keys (L * and U are the keys). When unlocking, instead of just pressing U, I press * and then immediately U. This does a silent unlock. In this mode, the reverse horn is also deactivated. Works great for me. I am so used to this that i almost always do a silent unlock.

How about these?
1. A sticker which has a dog peeping out - the paint looks like a curtain.
2. A sticker of a foot ball crashing into the rear glass.
3. Stickers/body graphics of bullet holes - looks as if the car was in a battle ground.

Nothing beats those soft toy moneys that hang on your rear view mirror, sold on the signals that go "chuuu chuuuu chuuuuuu" everytime you go into a ditch. You cant get more annoyin than that

How about mis-badging?? I saw an Innova with Audi badging - had me fooled for a moment (was in a heavy jam). The vehicle belongs to a textile merchant based in Trichur and a showroom in Ernakulam.

My list:
-Stuffed toys spread behind the rear seats obstructing the view.
-Reflective tinting
-Family surnames which are often tongue twisters (in A.P) on the car
-In appropriate decals and stickers (eg: i have seen a Ferrari logo and Great Britain Flag next to each other on an Accent...no connection)
-Coloured owels on seats to absorb sweat
-Tissue packs on the dash board after nearly 6 months of buying the car invariably given by the dealer and emptied in a week,but the box lies there with a last tissue
-Jarring figures of gods & godesses with lights and music accompanies..one Sr.Manager in my office stuck a 1ft sticker of Tirupati Balaji on his front windshield from exterior..guess which car..Honda Civic

All the guys above who have commented on the stickers on cars should take a look at my car collection and comment honestly where my taste heads !!! Please go thru my gallery

well i failed to add that music which all of a sudden became famous among 2 wheelers. God how can one need music when he applies the brake!!!
is it to prevent people hearing the moaning which occurs as the bike aint serviced well. Luckily the cops acted quick and banned it.
Well luckily i have not seen a car with a sticker saying DOWRY like some person had Moms gift written on the back of his car

How about that doggy sticker. It will be great to actually "let a dog in" .

Again, the window could be broken, and a note left:

Don't you know that dogs die from heat exhaustion in closed-up cars!

This might not classify as irritating.. But funny for sure...
Recently I saw a Skoda with 2 small plastic/glass "Windows" on the hood, from which one could see the engine.. I just could not understand how any one driving the car or standing on the road would be able to see the engine from those "Windows". Also the car, as usual, had air intake slots.
Also stickers of all the possible Modification Companies (K&N, Sparco et al), stuck on the car body, even though not one product might be installed in the car is very irritating.
