    Predictions for 2008

    Been wondering lately what sort of mods will be big next year, or what the next big thing (fad) will be, e.g. Lexus lights, then LED lights, then Angel Eyes and HID Kits etc etc etc....

    I'm thinking:

    > Audi R8 style headlights, with the line of LEDs.
    > Plug and play tuning devices (tuning boxes, and the BSR gizmos)

    Anyone got any other ideas of what will be next?

    Vauxhall 4x4 drivetrains being put onto every VXR/888/corsa going.
    Silly brake upgrades (discs the size of dustbin lids and calipers that go virtually all the way around).

    Not just the Astra scene, not just the Vauxhall scene, I mean modifying in general, all the things in the op are generic and can be found for a mix of cars.

    I think more euro themed cars, we seem to lag a year or two behind the rest of europe so I think their scene will really start to hit us next year. I know there's a few cars over here that have dabbled in it and the VAG scene is fairly euro in general but I think it'll really start to kick off.

    Any theme in general would be nice, 95% of modded cars in mainland europe follow some kind of theme where as 95% of modded cars in the UK are lashed together with no plan / theme at all.

    Could be wrong though.
