Well seems like many have forgotten the Batman sign which is used as the regn number in many bikes and few cars. God it is sad

On the topic of irritating accessories, ambicar perfume is one such for me. I never had one in my old car. When i bought the new car, dealer gave a free perfume. The smell was so pathetic that it constantly brought puking sensation in my kids.

I threw the perfume away immediately! To get rid of lingering "perfume" i had to drive to with all windows down and blower at full blast for next couple of days

The A pillar had at least 3 tweeters on each side
The music was also played so load that we could only here ching ching.....

Exterior..
Again it was fitted 2 green color tube lights on each side below the middle sliding door which would look like neon lights i believe
There were different color of lights blinking in the place where break lights, indicators, parking lights were supposed to be.
A spoiler with "n" number of blue color LED on them.
Dummy sun roofs.
Full of stickers here and there which obviously is out of the place and meaningless.
On the rear glass it was written "Beat Me If You Can"
Last but not the least blue, red and white LED on the bumpers with may be 1 inch gap between LED's

I don't know weather it was good or bad luck that i didnt have my phone with me or else i would have taken some pics of the van.


Vijay
You must have had a heart attack. lol

those irritaing stickers on cars like adidas nike etc as the person are their ambassadors. another thing is that musical reversing horns and a number of fog lamps put on a single car make it look like a cricket stadium.

I know a pressure horn would not qualify as an irritating item but using it in the city when someone is walking right next to your bumper can give anyone an instant headace and a scare
PS:i have a pressure horn in my car

Why would anyone put Chevrolet on a Zen to make it go faster, instead put a Ferrari

I have seen many cars with Blacklisted stickers, and some cars arenot even black.
