very bad idea to "light up " ones "under body " , unless its well maitained and presentable......

i would like to ask you a question in general - why does one modify his car ??? the answer to putting underbody neons is the same to get attention or personal satisfaction

i dont understand the personal satisfaction one might get in lighting up the pot holed road (public service) as compared to personal satisfaction in a quick neat car...godsake the driver cant see the neaon glow himself.. or is it the satisfaction attained when a hot chik at a bustop glares at the glow?

I used to have four small fog lamps fixed underneath on my palio. that was before fast and furious and neons became famous here.

I had it on only because once I had a puncture near Asanur at 11.30 in the night

I was so scared that I decided to drive with a flat tire for about 5 kms till I reached a tea shop before venturing out to changing the flat.

So as a immediate fix to my problem got the lights fixed underneath. Costed me about 1000 bucks. But then when I had more money to spare, I got myself tubeless tires
