In this thread, we will come here for advice on customizing our cars. Posting here will clean the forum from all the "what rims/color should I put on this car" threads.              

When modifying your PV, you want something recognizable. I went for something flashy with my Manana, but not gaudy. There is a line between flashy and gaudy.

Great thread!   Should I stick with these rims?

Damn, that looks really nice! I'd personally change the wheels but that's just my opinion.

I need a paint job recommendation for a Felon.

It's for my Female character so I try and keep it the colours going in a female vibe, just nothing too over the top.

How bout a dark red with some chrome high end rims.

I don't have a Felon so I experimented with something similar. I think this color looks quite nice. It's Garnet Red with an Ice White pearlescent.

Metallic Candy Red is pretty nice (at least I think that's what it's called) It has the pink-ish look to it but it doesn't scar your eyes whenever you look at your car.

I don't know what to do with two of my muscle cars, I just know that I want to change them. Any advice is welcome.

I'd change the Buccaneer's color(make it lighter) and change the wheels. I think the Phoenix looks good already :)

Anything I need to change with this?

I'm stuck between what it is now, and making a look-alike to a East Bear Sports skyline:

I'd change the spoiler personally but other than that, it looks really nice.

I'd maybe experiment with other rims (I don't find these suit the car) and possibly make the secondary color a shade lighter to create a bit of contrast and give the car a bit more personality.

Nice car, but I'm going to leave this here. (The Manana is based on a 1970's Cadillac Eldorado)

I'd change em to something more tuner-ish. And I personally think IS300 lights are ugly.

Sweet, someone made a thread of my idea.

 

I didn't make this thread because I would have started the thread by insulting everyone that would post in it. This is a far more palatable version.

 

Now I can backseat mod people into B&M and Custom Advice thread.

I actually made this because of all the annoying threads about people asking for advice on their cars. ^

I used to have them blue, but the clashing colours started pissing me off.

I used to have the 90's white plate on my Manana. I thought that looked quite nice.

Primary colour: Metallic olive green, Silver pearl. Secondary colour: Chrome, that's for the bumpers. Wheels: Flare.

Should end up with something like this:

I need a primary and secondary colour for my coquette classic. what colours should I use. (Also rims)

Red looks pretty good on the Coq Classic. I'd go with some nice muscle rims.

I totally agree, match the color scheme not the year of the plate. I see lots of vehicles ruined by a clashing plate

 

IRL the plate changes every year anyways, a 70's Eldorado doesn't get a 70's plate for life

I live in California and in the 10+ years I've owned vehicles I've never had to replace my license plates. It is not required to change them every year and quite a few vehicles have their original plates. Both of mine included.
