I'm the only one who thinks that the liveries of this car are ugly as hell?

 

I mean, compare the liveries of the Comet Safari to the ones of the Comet Retro Custom and it's a night and day difference.

The whole car is ugly as sin. They made the wheel diameter too large, so they had to flare the arches differently to compensate. And it makes the flares effectively horizontal on top, which looks stupid and un-aerodynamic. All the front bumpers stick out forwards too far which makes the front too bulky and long. Only made worse by the forced splitter on every bumper upgrade. Then there’s no RWB/Porsche wing options, they’re all just generic ‘tuner’ wings copy-pasted from everything else. Then there’s the god-awful wheel selection that’s been around since launch in 2013, with absolutely no graphical updates. None of them really work, and because none of them have any real offset/dish, it makes the car look even worse than it already does. There’s literally 2, maybe 3 wheel options that actually work. 

 

overall, it’s incredibly poorly done. The base car design looks like its trying too hard to ape the 3D era Comet rather than being a fresh take on a classic 911, which causes it to have the goofy headlamps and the bulbous rear end. And the widebody kit looks like it was made by someone not that into cars and who looked at an RWB Porsche once and then tried to remake it from memory. Compared to the other Retro Custom launched at the same time, it’s like they’re from two completely different games.

 

I’ve bought, modified, and sold it out of frustration at least 4 times. I keep thinking “maybe, just maybe, I’ll be able to make it look right this time.” But nope. You can polish a turd all you like, but it will be for ever a turd.

It wouldve been fine had they made damn widebody kit optional or not added it to the car at all. I think their idea was to please two crowds with one car and annoyed both instead. They shouldve made the modern comet widebody and gave us the comet retro without a dumb widebody kit. But hey there may still be hope for a non butchered version of this car. Alot of the car in the casino dlc are fan requested.

Not holding my breath though.

Getting angry cos this is about as close as I can get to making a SINGER, and taking it out on the poor Comet retro custom.

Heres to hoping, R* will stop teasing and release a normal comet classic without widebody kit.

sh*t mate never got an alert you replied. Just happened to see your question when this thread got bumped.

Both Dash VIPs, Supa Gee, maybe Cheetah RR, maybe Super Five, and the standard/Ruff Weld wheels. Nothing else has enough dish, save for the knockoff BMW wheels. But those don’t look right on it.

Ah, no problem. I went with the Dash VIPs, so it's good to know I made the right choice. 😉

I was getting so close to buying one to go for the Singer look as a final hurrah but having seen how terrible it looks with that RWB kit, I'm glad I haven't. Cheers.
