    well i made the misstake of buying the 200th special edition of fast car, from the cars i've seen in this it's not all that hard to get a feature. i think the cilo was a clear winner in the rubbish looks dept.

    Lol I bought that too, but only to see what the free dvd was like. I know what you mean about the cars in it. Lame.

    you generally need to have a lot of custom gear to get a feature. they are obviously lookin for original ideas - Mats was a prime example and im sure it will be in its next feature

    Yeah i agree!

    Mags just look for the most origionall mods like Robs lights and spoiler.I have mags from 2-3 years ago that have cars in that would piss on the cars from todays standard.

    There is a clio williams in one bored out to 2.1 Litres with TB's and a quad scorpion exhaust and some gold 17's with very tastefull bodymods.It's one of the best modded cars i've ever seen.

    a mate of mine got his astra put in revs ages ago. It was ace that everybody recognised the car and everything, but about a week later, he came out his house in da morning, and sum little scrot had keyed every panel! Cost him best part of a grand to put right! Jealousy is a horrible thing!
