Most irritating accessory?.......Passengers!!! LOL

On a serious note, i think it would be the reverse beep/tune or whatever. I get that disabled the day we pick up a new car.

A few of them:

1. Annoyingly big fire extinguisher stands
2. Small stands with holes for agarbathis
3. Jing-bang mobile holders (imagine red or yellow colored teddy! *Puke*)
4. Strange, ugly metallic indicator protectors

For a car that expensive, and since it is made for India, perhaps it comes with a user-friendly spitoon that recycles the paan effluents and makes them environment-friendly before ejecting them from the car.

Hey Guyz,

A white Zen with a million decals all over and a dark ( read : very dark ) shade for the rear glass that reads SL 55 with a pic of the tri-star next to it, caught my attention at Five Gardens, Wadala, Mumbai last evening at abt 9:15pm.

Enough reason for me to write in, i guess.!!!

No offense meant, but hopefully it's not a TBhp'ians set of wheels - Please.

Cheers

Hey this is something which I still tend to see in cabs.. They have this bunch of grapes & they also seem to change colours... Also so many times I have stepped into a cab burning really funny incense...

Does such an accessory actually exist ?
I was under the impression that we're talking about accessories that one has come across, and finds it irritating..

Reverse Horns
Reverse light metal cladding
Wheel caps. (I got them removed the first day)
Blinking Tail lights (Watch out for call centre cabs / sumos)
Blinking Front parking lights
Blue LEDs (They make everything look hazy. DANGER in other words)
Crappy stickers
Dual horns (There should be a "shoot at sight" order for them)
Solid metal covers for ORVMs usually found in Tempo Travellers. (They don't realize how dangerous they're)
Any ICE that's LOUD. (Do they know what's happening outside?)(I don't like to hear free music. I'll buy my own.)
Video Screen for the driver. (God, save us from this guy)

Whilst on my way to the office today, I saw an ABS Badge stuck on the back of an auto. Tried to take a snap, but the damn thing went ahead quickly. Guess after all he might have got ABS...

The one that sounds like an old-fashioned computer game?

Damn it --- there's some-one near here who has one, and comes home around 2.00am. Grrrr....

There is an irritating guy in our apartment complex who comes home after 2 am......with his LOUD ICE blaring Ditchik, Ditchik, Ditchik, Ditchik...

Irritating to the core.

Why can't these morons keep their music to themselves...atleast at 2am?
