AWW MAN…no stick on chrome hood scoop,and curb feelers…its just not right

Well at least they bothered to make sure its aligned properly and not just slap it on.. but still, if chrome ever had a chance at looking good on a car this kinda thing is what kills it

yup, still gay. hahahahaha. probably not even real chrome. this guy probably had a $500 gift certificate to pep boys and didn’t know what to spend it on.

those cars are gay pieces of shit there aint no way to make one any good all that chrome just makes it look worse

Why the hell are people putting those cheap chrome stick-ons on there fender? It came from a buick and now everyone is sticking it on there vehicles. That shit is ugly especially on imports.

thats too much chrome for that car….its madd uglyy…

Okay.. Here’s the deal… I have this same chrome stripping INSIDE of my car.. Not the outside. I pulled it off my tailights bc I seen how tacky it looked. But I do have it around my dash and door trim and makes it look really classic. All Jetta owners know that the inside of a 2001 Jetta just looks boring. I spiced mine up. This Prius is looking a hot mess with all of it on there. Check mine out with the exact same stripping and tell me what ya’ll think! =)

Such a sexy Prius! How can you not love the chrome? That’s hot.

Lots of crome But NO CROME Rims To match It All! Boreing I Have To Say! Get Some wire cromes 13 inch Drop Look Then lol,ha ha…

Alright come on. How overboard can you possibly go. This is one of the reasons why so many people hate ricers. I say ricers meaning all imports. I don’t take offense to being called a ricer, hell I’ll dam straight say I am one. But this is what gives us a bad look. To tell the truth, most people don’t know the amount of power you can get out of a rightly tuned vtech, or anything along those lines. But for real, It’s this kind of shit that makes everybody in the tuner scene look bad. Dam dude, I mean yeah. I’ve got a lot of chrome on mine. but those stick on side vents, all that trim, It’s just not needed. I mean yo, I’m not trying to sit here and preach to anybody or any shit like that, but all I’m saying is this is the kind of shit that makes all us tuners look bad.

Sorry, just not into chrome, I’d done blacking it out.

When you cant polish a turd, hide it under a butt load of chrome trims

BIG4GALANT99
May 10, 2009 at 5:13 am

walmart sells those vents now! you its gone to far if walmart starts carrying them. please everyone, do your car a favor and dont put peel and stick vents on your car!!!

beefyboy242
May 10, 2009 at 3:30 am

why are the Buick front fender vents so damn popular? They look like shit on all the other cars that people put them on, I just don’t get it. I don’t get the prius either, but then again I at least try to think differently from everyone else.

RockstrMentality
May 9, 2009 at 8:40 pm

to the guy below me, yes you can make a prius look good. wrap it around a pole.
i love how this guy didnt even bother to put rims on

PIchillin456
May 9, 2009 at 7:10 pm

Sorry you Prius owners but there is NOTHING you can do to make a Prius look good. And this goes for any car out there. Just slapping on a ton of chrome on a car does not make your car look amazing…well it does but amazingly ugly. I mean there’s a reason why Ferarri’s have little or no chrome. Don’t get me wrong I like chrome but it shouldn’t be all over the car. I like chrome rims but i don’t like chrome door edging. Chrome emblems look good but chrome windshield surrounds just look tacky. Chrome license plate frames add style to your ride but do you really need that cheap stick on chrome trim on your front bumper? Hey if you like chrome go for it use it sparingly. If you don’t Your car will look like that Prius and you don’t want that.

holy hell i blew off to this car today not knowing i’d later see it on cardomain haha…. finally a ricer PRIUS!!!

ericwells7777
May 9, 2009 at 6:08 pm

Im sorry but if I see those STUPID,LAME,RETARDED AutoZone stick on vents on one more damn ride…. People why are you spending money on these things??? the funny thing is everyone knows what these are and where they come from and they also know that they are stick-on so why do you think they make your ride look cool??? How about ya get a real job and then go get a “real” car that goes fast without stick-on vents…LOL!!!! Your killing me guys….your killing me!!! Btw for what you paid for the stick-on vents you could have at least got yourself a fun little set of 14 inch spinner hubcaps…LOLOLOLOL!!!!

OneSickTeg
May 9, 2009 at 4:59 pm

I’m not feeling the chrome trim at all. It looks tacky in my opinion, but like everything else it goes with personal preference.

strawbfo
May 9, 2009 at 4:41 pm

It looks goofy as hell, I still dont understand this chrome mod BS!!!!! especially around the doors and fenders, And i cant stand that chrome plated sheet metal around the window its so corny looking and gets scratched when people grab the door. Different strokes for different folks but who knows where this guy is swimming to!

May 9, 2009 at 3:44 pm

Looks like a chrome freak with a honda sh*t on it lol (no shots taken at hondas.. just saw one onetime that looked similar)

chaztheoccultist
May 9, 2009 at 1:04 pm

ITS NOT THAT BAD. THE TRIM ON THE FENDERS, DOORS AND BUMPERS NEEDS TO GO. AT LEAST IT DONT HAVE 26′ RIMS.

ITS NOT BAD AT ALL. THE TRIM ON THE FENDERS NEEDS TO GO. BUT ITS NOT THAT BAD. AT LEAST IT DONT HAVE 26′ RIMS.

corporatecaddy
May 9, 2009 at 9:28 am

its not THAT bad…the chrome is almost tasteful except for the fenders..i can say that it looks good around the window but the car is ugly as shit anyway no matter what you do to it…ill give it to him for trying at least

MiamiMiataGroup

SCARCE911
May 8, 2009 at 7:03 pm

As long as they make the plastichrome junk.. SOME IDIOTS will buy it….The owner could have at least went all out and bought some of the plastichrome hubcaps while they were in the “automotive” section..right next to the fishing equipment…and sewing machines..
I’ve seen worse ..would post a link but that would be kinda mean.

May 8, 2009 at 6:57 pm

It looks better than that Dodge Charger that was on here a few weeks ago.

Serj22
May 8, 2009 at 5:05 pm

I saw someone who had a Scion XB, the boxy one, and had tons of different side vents from pepboys and walmart, and they were all over the side of the car, on the doors, the top of the doors, the fenders, the bumper and they were all different, some were carbon fiber, some black, some chrome, different types then tons of that door trim all over the car, he literally lined the bumper gaps with the stuff so the whole car was outlined, it’s the only thing uglier than this prius.

BoydZCustomZ
May 8, 2009 at 5:03 pm

Not bad, They should paint it Flat Black and put Gold Racing rims on it. Or they can also Cut the roof top from the backseat and turn it into a truck and make it look like an El Camino.

jarch
May 8, 2009 at 4:49 pm

this person should be shot and have their car burned… all that chrome is disgusting.. that is horrible… i would slit their tires..

Everything on it looks good EXCEPT the fake/useless side vents. I always have and always will hate useless side vents.

I see loads of PT Cruisers in the UK done up like that… but with chrome flames as well! It’s not a good look.

There’s a guy here who thinks his powder-blue Prius beats all. I saw him “ridin’ dirty” with his buddies mean mugging every last passerby.

My neighbor has one too, but it’s not so bad. You know these things don’t even have real shifters? They have joysticks just like the old “DOOM” games. Somebody get Mrs. Pacman!

cknarf
May 7, 2009 at 7:12 pm

THAT IS NOT A BUICK.

brivan
May 7, 2009 at 6:35 pm

The trim appears to be working overtime,almost as if,its working desperately,at trying to attract my attention away from something?!

SouthernGuy8503
May 7, 2009 at 6:05 pm

well for one its still a freakin prius, no matter what you did to it, it would still be a prius, about the only thing i like on that car is the tinted windows, it wouldn’t look to bad if they only had the chrome trim around the windows, but all the other trim, molding and other shit gotta go

Austin Knight

My s/o’s college friend has a boyfriend with a Prius. He wants to murder it. I think if he does, I might have to murder him.
Anyway, chrome is fine, but too much of a good thing is still too much.

hotrod_heven
May 7, 2009 at 4:24 pm

Well, I am sure this heavily chromed Prius doesn’t turn off the gasoline motor.

If he melted all that down maybe he could make the rims he should of bought in the first place.

Too much chrome for me.

whtfocus77
May 7, 2009 at 2:58 pm

why does everyone think chrome looks good on every part of your car. i saw a mercedes clk350 with chrome trim around the headlights, the tailights, the windows, the side skirts, the bumpers, the license plates, around the already chrome grill. the only thing he didnt have chrome on was around the sunroof !
