I think the hood addon wasnt even required, i guess its just unecessary weight. (reminds me of the black widow II bodykit design by grounddesigns 2000 really) and why arent the light-eyebrows extended into the corner light? it looks so stupid to leave it just at that point... thats not the way it should be.

Cool whoa

well well ive been to RIO s place a couple of times well i think he does nt make the cars the way he wants to but mostly it his clients that ask him to ,maybe he suggests but then thats one thing

other is personally i think RIO does an awesome job on paint many other of his competitors would definitely have a praise for him on that i surely know one

P.s
that honda city surely does nt look worth 6L

Cool Holla

I do agree rio got some off the most best designs possible.....

dc doesnt even come half as close to him...

rio got alot of ideas.......

but only does the hood work for clientel that ask him to do it...

.most of the honda citys these days get that modded on their cars gues its becoming to

common....

Seen a JET black Rio City at my gym yesterday and it was awesome. Didn't have my camera because I don't carry it to the gym. Anyways, it had the same bonnet design as the one in the Yellow and Silver City. The bumpers were different. The wheels were SUPER!!!! I'll be taking my camera today, hope the guy/girl comes again.

P.S. Had also spotted a Silver RS with the same wheels that were on the toppled yellow RS.

yeah the designs are real cool. But I think as some1 mentioned in one of the threads these kits do look a bit heavy.

Usually the hood is raised when you have additional parts under the hood (like supercharger) that need more clearance. In this case, he may just be trying to copy the look from another car. Bulging bonnet is like bulging muscle. Mitsubishi Eclipses have a bulge in the hood and it looks cool.

This the the worst thing about RIO designed cars.He uses the same dye for about 10-12 cars.All his cars look the same.The only difference is the color.

Very much possible.But if anyone wants a unique kit,he has to pay almost double the price for it.And Rio kits are heavy.But lighter than Team motor works thanksfully.
