Im a newbie here! I've recently bought a SportKA and want to make some modifications to it without making it look tacky, and ideas?

Hello and welcome to the club.

All depends on how much money you'd like to spend and what you want out of it. If you want a more of a show car then theres body kit, larger wheels, lowered, sound system, light modifications, exhaust, window tints, interior modifications. Then you can also work on the engine ...... there is an endless list.

Well, I was sort of thinking viper stripes and sound system first, maybe some angel lights.. but to be quite honest, im clueless about all this stuff! I know what things are, but I dont know whats good and what isn't, I need help!

Well you said not tacky and so viper stripes......................no!!!!!

I know they are on the fiesta ST but i think they are awful! They are called viper stripes for a reason!!

At the end of the day it is your opinion but i really dont like them and think it only looks good on very few cars.

A sound system is a good modificaton and can be done relatively easily and not that expensive.

Nothing to be confused about.

Have a look on websites and magazines for wheels and see if there are any that take your fancy.

Its all personal taste. I'm not sure what sizes fit the ka but i'm sure someone will be along soon that knows.

Hi and welcome to the site. Get some pics of your car up and i'll do a few photoshops of it with different wheels, colous, patterns, try some kits, some smoothing etc etc and post back.

Thats if these damn kittens stop trying to steal my mouse.

Car looks in very good condition.

I would definately say it needs lowering as it does look a little bit high. Some side skirts, front and rear valance wouldnt go a miss either.

Have to see what vinny comes back with after his photoshop exploits!
