Thumbs down Horrible!!

My guess on what could've happened... The body shop guy mixed up his job cards when DC wasn't around, and in the process welded some leftover body parts on to a matiz and placed the whole thing onto a qualis ladder frame. And somehow, the optimistic owner drove this thing out on the streets. DC???????? Phooey!!!!!!!

would definitely like to see the optimistic owner atleast once
hope it is not some kinda prototype, which would mean there's lots more to come ...

True aadix, the pictures that appeared in the magazines were better by a long shot...... the qualis we have here is in a not-so-appealing colour..........And is also very obviously badly maintained......

BTW, if u actually look at the bonnet it clearly shows that its damaged....The wires r popping from the top of the grille and look at the bonnet joint and u can clearly see that the bonnet mounts were removed when the photo was taken....
another pic taken at the speed run shows that the front is neatly crafted....
Its true that he has used a lotsa stuff from the matiz but it looks pretty neat, however the wheels look tooo big!

Exclamation Ditch the Bitching!!!

Come on guys we cant bad mouth the 'only' large scale internationally acclaimed automobile designer we have!!!!!

I mean, sure some ghastly designs have come out of his workshop but its wat his clientele demand, afterall the customer is king!!

Also everyone has gone overboard by saying that the ISA is ugly and falling to pieces, but did anyone consider that it's because of the owner of the vehicle that it's looking the way it is???

Say, If you saw a Accord falling apart, would you blame Honda for it?? or the owner??
Badly maintained was an understatement i had used previously...........

And sure there's a reason why Aston Martin chose him to prototype their DB9, and no, its not only coz it would be lighter on their pockets but also because of his expertise in prototyping.......

I say, give the guy a break............ lets talk constructively!!!

with no hard feelings, dear team-bhp members.,

as we all know that the owner of this particular isa is an team-bhp member, so how abt reducing /stopping the critisism?? as it just might hurt or upset the member.

how abt appericiating the fact that the owner actually tried to do up his car rather than just thinking abt it??

thx.

moderators kindly lock up the topic please .
