this is my little 106.


its completly stock... boring!

so im buying some wheel trims the same style as the ones that are on it and im going to spray them. i have the choice of black, white and a very small amount of ford olympic blue.

vote for your favourite and when they get here i'll paint them the colour that has the most votes.

also if you have another idea i could do. post it up.

Vote away!!!!!

Very cool, black with blue spoke is cool.
uiui
Make it jdm/hella/drift so put green or red wheels.
Big Daddy Clem
No please uiui stop that..
I would vote fot white lips and black center.
the stigster
^^ thats cool but it wouldnt look like that cause its still the stock wheel trims. i quite like the black with blue think i could do it like ken block. the white with the orange spoke with DC on it, could do that but black with blue??
Helmasaur King
don't put DC, just do blue
maybe do a white spoke, or a black spoke. I don't know if blue would fit with your car's body color

ugh Uk sucks
the stigster
got to tell insurance about every little thing so they can make you pay more so your "protected" if you crash... but wheel colour they dont give two hoots about. if i changed the trim to a different style that cost what £30 then my insurance would go up
M.I.V. Design.
damn, here the insurance makes no problems about that, if the car passes the checkup they will cover you
as I am driving atm (to low and stretch) they won't cover me... smile2.gif
the stigster
new zealand is the best place. you only have insurance if you want it..... stupid uk goverment dry.gif

Ditch the wheel covers and paint the steelies if you are going to do that. Painting wheel covers just seems lame.

BTW, nice car. I love 106's
Curtis
^this.

Draw a triangle between the wheel nuts xd.gif
the stigster
cant really paint the steelies and i like the design of the trims. hopefully they'll be here tomorrow
M.I.V. Design.
what you could do is get a set of 16" covers and make them fit on your steelies, its perfectly possible with glue =p
the stigster
lol glue them to the tyre and zip ties xd.gif
Mkid
You can paint anything. Clean them off really good, sand, primer, paint, clear. Done. If you don't want it to be permanent, you can use plasti-dip as a primer.

It peels right off. Its what I used to paint the front of my lancer and my chrome wheel arch trim black.
the stigster

take wheel covers off and get the actual rims chromed.
the stigster

just got a phone call from my dad, the trims have arrived going to pic them up later, after my mum comes back with my car lol
Noodles
yes, paint the steelies red and get white walls, you would have my respect.

You can change the trim to whatever you want, that just counts as maintenance. As do other things like upgrading suspension and stuff like that. Or just buy some peugeot alloys and they won't know the difference.
the stigster
true, but it would look a bit dodgy if the police pulled me over and asked why my car was slammed and i said maintenance... doesnt really matter i cant heavy modifiy it because my sisters having it after me. so i got to save for a my own car then i can mod the hell out of it.
M.I.V. Design.
slammed you will always be in a violation of the law, dont matter if the insurance knows or not wink.gif
the stigster
they'll just say that your ruining public roads and tax you more lol
DMC-12
Nahh you can legally lower your car without any problems, if you don't do it retardedly. for most cars it makes them better to handle.
big trick daddy andy
if its some sort of dark green paint em gold like subaru“s wheels
the stigster
sounds cool, think im going with white. theres some other kid with the same car,(colour and wheel trims) and hes got his black, going with white with blue blots
Curtis
Don't use the blue. That will look awful against the green on your car. Just stick to white dude
M.I.V. Design.
gold!
uiui
Gold bbs rims?
M.I.V. Design.
no dumbass, gold discs

Wow.. so scared to mod and tell insurance.. You play it WAY too safe man, just saying I've driven a modified car or two for a while now without declaring a few mods and thankfully haven't got in any trouble for it, its all about doing subtle mods man.. and don't paint trims its a waste of time tbh.. they're plastic trims. it'll just look ghetto as f*ck.. opinions though. I'd paint the steelies.

that is the point of even driving this car
the stigster
atm i dont really care if i paint the trims or let the air out my fricking tyres im sick of driving at the limit cause of my insurance and i would love to have a project car as this has to stay stock, mechanical wise, no matter what it is. its a massive kick in the teeth. sad.gif
Shafz
What insurance company are you with mate? Co-Op (not the young drivers tracker bull, but the normal company) is brilliant for drivers of our age..

Shafz.
Ed.
sand down the steelies, paint 'em white and when you can afford the insurance, throw the car to the floor.
Helmasaur King
dont do that, you might break it
the stigster
@ shafz - i got the co-op tracker one sad.gif my mums the main driver and im a named. im paying for it each month so its costing me £57 a month. which for a first car 17 year old is pretty good. my mate at college has a 1.6 old BMW 3 series (i think) and hes paying £160

@ i wish i could but the car has to stay stock.....


UPDATE!!!!!


my car is modding itself!


you hear/see correctly!! i've just got back from work and the closer to home i got the louder my exhaust got. im pretty sure i have a hole just before the CAT. well put it this way sounds like i got straight pipes and im driving at the limit and sensibly xd.gif its awesome.... just hope i dont get pulled for it being to loud, as i cant afford to get it fixed and i need it wednesday to go to college.
Ed.
Where abouts do you live, Stiggy?
big trick daddy andy
so, u need to tell the insurance company u are painting ur wheels gold?
the stigster
UK in the south west a little part called somerset

@andrew.. not that i know of. i know i have to tell them that im changing the wheels of a sports exhaust of changed the whole colour of the car. but i think the colour of the wheels they dont give two hoots about just as long as you got some lol
Ed.
So you're about 80 miles from me, I'm Northampton, or if you're like most of the UK and don't know where that is, about 20 miles South of Milton Keynes.
If you find a half-way spot, I'll gladly come down and give you a hand playing with it in a manor that doesn't affect your insurance
