these are not accessories.. but the santro tail lights are too harsh on the eyes of the drivers following that car.. especially in stop-n-go traffic where the brake is constantly on.. and i hate drivers who use foot brake instead of the hand brake while they wait for the signal.. it's a pain during the nights.

Here goes my list

1 - Reverse Horns . Man they give me a headache.
2 - The tweeters mounted in the cabs which only give the dik chik noise.
3 - Chrome plated exteriors(Scorpio's) aarrgghh.
4 - Cars with alloys and the tyres sticking out.

I hate stickers on cars...especially those made to look like air scoops on the bonnet.
and reversing sounds too.

i hate those exterior stickers that people put on their cars,stuff like a dagger on the fuel cap,a puppy ,a lion jumping out of the car,a cricket ball,football(all these stickers giving an impression that they have torn open the metal sheet and are jumping out).
i hope you understand what im trying to get at.

As with everyone else, reverse horns, indicator beepers, tigerskin or fakefur interiors, chrome and stick-on fake airscoops.

Plus I hate the following:

1. Ferrari stickers on a non-Ferrari.

2. NASCAR CHROME decal on a Safari dicor of all things! (My neighbour has one!)

3. Names of all family members on the rear windshield. Why dont they stick the mobilenumbers too? At least we'll have Sneha's mobile number.

4. A bootful of subwoofers.

5. Cars with 5 different perfume bottles in various locations (my cousin has these + fake fur dash and carpets).

6. Seatback-organizers overstuffed with every conceivable thing.

7. Neons of any sort.

8. White-painted brandnames (ref: abovesaid neighbour with Nascar Safari) on the poor tyre.

9. Fake-EVO-kitted Lancers like all Filipinos have.

10.My favourite - an aftermarket SPOILER is very aptly named.

I too had seen a tall...black..huge weired guy in BMW X5 with lungies and those vests(banyans) .... the only accessory that looked weired was the guy driving it...

@gopz .... May be he is an owner of a lungi factory..huh?

Unless he was spitting out on the road or on somebody else, I don't see anything wrong in chewing pan in a Bentley!

My peeves:
1) Stickers on cars* (K&N type, cricket ***** tearing out of the metal, people's names)
2) Home-made spoilers (Saw one on an Esteem near Christ College. Looked like an engineer's metal working project gone wrong)
3) Dik-chik tweeters. And the music that produces the "dik-chik"
4) Blinking LED type thingies in the rear windscreen.
5) Have started noticing cabs here who have put in a flasher for their brake light circuit. When they hit the brakes, the whole rear light cluster starts flashing. Annoying. Grrr.
6) Fake air dams and bonnet air scoops.
7) Overly dark/opaque tints. Affects our ability to look through vehicles for driving decisions.

* An exception would be TBHP stickers. Anyone got 1 or 2 to spare in Bangy?

And guess what on the rear windscreen of a Cielo seen soon after the recent mayhem in the NCR (no offense to anyone's sentiments) in LARGE RED font? Here we go - GUJJAR

What next??!!!

2. Towels as seat covers
3. Roof rails on M800, Indica.

Reverse horns are terrible.
Even the real horns are irritatingly misused.
Visor for the rear windshield (whatever is that for).
