Hi People, here is an ideaShocked

A lot of us owners have been to car shows, some have drooled over the custom cars and thought errmm can I do that.
So the question is where... how... and what ... Parts can we fit in an engine bay/on an engine etc That tart it up, change its colour, make it look different.
Lets go one step further than just cleaning it. 
These are not necessarily performance parts just styling parts.

hiya Mart, nice meeting you yestThumbs Up. First thing that springs to mind is a chrome battery cover, I'd imagine thats a pretty universal part & not not particularly car specific.

The strut bar Mart1965 is referring to is actually coming from this Dutch company:
http://www.qashqai-cardesign.nl
It is available with (matt) black mounting plates as well and costs 169 euros excl. shipping.
Many bits and pieces to choose from, including a gas strut kit for the bonnet.

btw The owner is a member of the Dutch Qashqai forum.

 CryCry so sad, the fact i actually know what you mean and its just too dam expensive as i would need a spare as QQ is a daily runner/only car so cant be off road CryCryCry
the ability to have virtually any design printed onany surface is a smart idea, looks really cool on interior trim pieces. Thumbs Up
good suggestion CraigQQ

that big plastic engine cover only reduces the engine noise really, can take it off for a few days without any problem if you ever wanted to hydro dip it,

they don't serve much purpose other than sound deadning and making the engine a little prettier.

Does the the strut bar actually do anything for the car or is it just bling? ie does it make it handle any better,? if that is possible.
