Pretentious? Moi?

Allways strange when someone try to be something they're not. Especially when what they pretend to be is not nessescarily anything better. In my opinion it is lesser.
I really dislike the GW look and all those. and I feel discomfort to put it mildly, when people call my car a Jeep.
I do really want to distribute a Glasgow kiss.. but I am a grown man.

The pontiac fiero Ferrari body kit.. Or the Porsche 911 rear wing on a beetle.
Or the irmscher Vauxhall styling from the eighties. Ugly and stupid.

I know why bother, we have bigger fish to fry. :)

2005 Jimny M16A VVT, 235 BFG MT, 2" Trailmaster, ARB rear lck, 17%/87% high/low gears.

Somehow they have managed to miss out all the distinguishing features of a Defender! Poor effort.

I could live with the Defender style changes, it's the G Class kit that gets under my skin, it really does spoil the looks of the Jimny in my eyes.

I feel the same as Yakuza, but not by people calling it a Jeep. But by people calling it a baby G Wagon :evil:

I always thought the jeep tag was understandable, just look at the origins. The LJ/SJ vehicles (in soft top guise) had a very Willys jeep feel about them and twisting SJ into Suzuki jeep wasn't much of a stretch. As for body kits, we're all different. My view is that I bought a car from the showroom because I liked the look of it, changing it beyond all recognition means I may have bought the wrong car in the first place. Chris

It really doesn't though.



The plastic grill looks vaguely similar but that's about it. And what are those chrome hub caps about?

If you can photoshop it at the side of the road with the bonnet up then it would be perfect.

Its not a mini Defender in my opinion, it looks like a G4 Jimny with a roof rack, a winch bumper fitted and green paint, which it is!
Hardly a unique transformation and I've seen better efforts on here, I think Andy2640 G4 looks much better.
