Not underglow, sorry. It's those lights under the seats.

I guess I shouldn't have made this forum. XD I'm still paying for my car, so I'm kind of afraid to do anything to depreciate its value.

i have under dash led's and under the front two seats to light up the back floorboards with blue led's as well. did it back in my horrible ricer phase. i had lots of led's in at the time and it was tacky as hell. now there's just the 4 lights and they're well hidden personally i love them. if done right i don't thinks it's tacky.

Agreed.
I've also got some blue neons under the dash but completely hidden from view and all you see is the light permeating a soft blue hue on the foot wells.
4 actual black lights hang in the plain view so that they can do their job at night so all you see is a white glowing tee shirt with no head and arms in the seats.
I still have a little ricer in me but hey, why not? Geez, if you can't have a little fun with your car then why have it?

I had my friend but in the LEDs under the front and it looks really good...not too over powering, I think.

its a cavalier, dont think they can depreciate much more. just do what you want and ignore everyone else. but make sure anything you do you do it right and the proper way, don't half ass the job.

Lettering on the car is fine if it servers a purpose other than stating the obvious (ie Cavalier/Sunfire). Granted I'm a little bias. I also think Dual Magnaflows could look good depending upon what style you have.

Not that its very photogenic, but it says "WI GM-Tuners.com"


Like I said, the mufflers look nice depending upon the style.


Any type of wing looks tacky unless paired with more modifications that complement each other.

i can see 1/4 of a muffler's silhouette, and barely see any of the print on your windshield lol.
so i couldn't agree or disagree with you.

No offense, because i LOVE how your car looks, so please dont take this personally.
But the tackiest thing:
Empty plate frames/ plates on the front at all.

I understand that it's law in some places, but they honestly
look
like
@!#$

Fake fender vents. When instead of putting tint at the top of the front windshield, they put a strip of vinyl the color of their car. Underglows, neons, etc, especially in the interior. Hacked up stereos with speakers sitting on the back shelf. Walmart 6x9s sitting in boxes, on top of the rear shelf. Fart can exhausts.

good thing ours are only $75... there is NO WAY IN HELL IM DRILLING into my front bumper...... not a chance in hell. And ive told the officers when they say, next time i see you im going to write you a ticket. I just tell them, next time when you do write me a ticket, then i will just end up paying it since im not going to drill holes into my front bumper.

you can always do what i did; as ghetto as it sounds.

Zip tie your plate inside of your bumper, against the radiator/ supports.

I've gotten puzzled looks from cops when they say "You have no front plate"
and i get out, have them bend down, and look inside of my bumper through the splits to see it.

"Ah, well- i guess ya' do"

Yeah, I had a huge problem for not having a front license plate on my old Sunfire.

luckily, CT doesnt actually enforce these laws. It's more of the "You're being a dick to an officer, Guess what im tagging onto your tab"

Red painted brake drums, tacky chrome wheels on sport compacts who wish they were chrysler 300s, dealer rice, and painted interior trim that doesn't match anything else on the car. Thats my tip of the iceberg...remember, if you want a nice looking car...3 easy steps: 1. lower. 2. add wheels. 3. Tint those windows...done.
