Saxo musings

The Citroen Saxo isn't a bad little thing. Cheap, light, chuckable, pretty swift in VTS guise... little wonder it's been the darling of the modifying scene since its introduction in 1996.

The simple lines and squat proportions respond well to carefully-chosen mods, and there's a wealth of options out there... the best results come from a nice set of wheels and a gentle tap with the lowering stick. Keep it simple.

However, it's very easy to get it wrong. Some people try way too hard and end up looking ridiculous...

...and sadly, a lot of Saxos you see on the road today look like this. Total bunch of arse.

Oh dear, oh dear. See, if you're going to do it, you have to do it properly. Look up - that's shit. Look down - that's what you should do.

Much underrated colour, brown. And those wheels are sex on a stick.
