This weekend shall provide better photo opportunities as we are off to a beach resort on the East coast of Tunisia with the weather returning to its normal state, i.e bright sunshine and very hot !!!

Thoughts on the new EBP paintjob ?

Oh dear, 4 replies and already the standards have plummeted!

UTA, it looks very nice. I suggest you invest in a car cover so the neighbours don't cover it in paint or camel sh*t again

Why do people do this optical tuning. By a proper car the first time and then buy it fast or make it fast.
The only optical tuning in my opinion is Rims and Tyres.
But in this case they're utter crap.

Here in the States we call it a "Fart Cannon" muffler.

UTA, spend a little more money and get the higher end Civic or move up to an Accord at least so you don't have to turn your car into a rice-mobile with those cheesy rims. All you are missing is a massive whale-tail to give you tons of downforce.

Guys, guys, guys. You're missing the point here. This is my second car, my first being a nicey stock Golf IV which shall be replaced by a Golf V GTI or a 320i some time next year.

Seen here with the Clio and the Rhaat (Runway23).

I bought that Civic for 2700 €, go those rims/tires for free and only got the EBP because my neighbor ruined the previous CGP paint.
So for the moment it's a 3100€ car with the new paintjob which is tremendous value for a full-spec car with only 55k miles on the clock.

The color looks good on it, and a lot better then the dark color (Black or dark Blue?) it had before, especially in a hot place much of the year in the daytime. I would assume that the original owner from the USA states (it is a USA market car that was brought to Rep. of Ireland) was the source of the big ass exaust end. Shows how much bad taste we have in the USA.
So when are you going to change over to local plates, or do you have a while to do so?

You had the paint done in Tunsia? Just make sure you wash the car every 2 weeks if its dirty. Did you get the idiot neighbour to pay the bill since its his fault your old one was ruined?

The rims aren't that bad, at least they aren't spinners. But that fart cannon, wow. I was hoping at least part of the world was untouched by wild rice.

If you want to keep going down that road, you can always install:
Window tint.
Booming stereo.
Neon lights.
Lowering kit.
Various stickers of performance products that aren't installed.
A spoiler that weighs more than the car.
Yay Pudding!

Too late:



But seriously. The paint is sharp... Just dont know those rims yet. And what ever you do, dont put the clear tail lights on it, or you get two bags of rice.

Nope as I don't like litigation, but I've been the recipient of nice cakes and other Tunisian delicacies since the start of Ramadan.

It is indeed. Rent of that place is two thirds of what I paid in DUB for a very small 1-bedrooom flat  Silly

Ok I'll admit, it doesn't look too bad now it's all finished however, I think I'd stick to something a bit more conservative myself, like your Golf IV's colour. When are you selling that then and how much?  Wink

My shitbox 206 needs to be replaced in 2007! It'll be 9 years old then!

She's going to my dad who'll pay 10,000 € for her, bearing in mind that :

1) That's what i paid in the first place 4 years ago.
2) He paid for half of it (but does not recall it bouahahahaha)
