ok guys me and a mate was talking about what was more important in your eyes as far as your mondy is concerned..is it the power behind it or does the looks of it do it more for you..im interested cos for me its not power its looks and some might say with the td it cant be anything else.so im going to do a poll if i can set it up and see what the majority thinks

in my experience i've done alot of ice, cosmetics, interior mods blah de blah and the power mods are the most rewarding/useful and the novelty dont wear off quick like it does with the other stuff.

Not voted as I'd have to say both but mine sadly lacks both as it need a bit of TLC and the engine although not a slouch is pretty much standard

got to be done, coz admittely since I have had the front bumper put on you get some serious bell ends out there, who want to play. Not that I do that sort of thing but its nice to wipe smiles off faces, even though I haven't got substantial power, it puts the average corsa to shame lol :woot:

Big NO NO to racing but when it comes to 3 o clock in the morning and some git is flashing me on the way home and there is not another car about then sometimes my foot slips a bit harder on the pedal errrm. But I do condone my actions and would not wish any other Megger to follow my example. The rest of the time I am a very good boy keeping to speed limits. :whistling:

good looking car = attractive target for theves, as you are likly to have TV's, headunit, expensave ICE etc etc

but with power you can be a sleeper........... suprising ppl with your standard looking car :L

big power is nothing without control, for me its about performance, as a light 200bhp car will be better than a large 400bhp car

imagine 400bhp in a old school Lada what ever they where square thingys, with standard suspenion.

i real both to much with cosmetic changes.

heres my 2pence

I would have to say looks...... most of the time (neaning all the ruddy time) I never go faster than about 80 which the mondie does easily, So I want it to look nice. I think it depends on what your car is I mean if its a 1.6 then you need a bit more power but mines a 2ltr so I like to do the looks thing. but BOTH is best. Of course...... when you have a MK1 you have to make it diffrerent as standard like look like an old rep mobile but you CAN go overboard which is where mine is starting to go. So now it needs some TLC as its been a year and things are starting to go round the edges.
