Does your car attract unwanted/wanted attention?

I've started to attract a lot of attention since modding my car, from tailgaters to people shouting things (probably abuse ) to a guy down the road from my parents who has a lovely blue dc5. Good bloke. A passenger in a cab was saying something to me tonight but tbh I couldn't hear him, so I just waved
Anyone else get this?

I also get attention in mine mate....some good ...some jealousy 😀 Don't really pay attention either way mate unless someone threw something at car I probably would just laugh......it's mainly the attention from the Feds that gets on my nerves . They always try and catch out anyone in a boy racer type car ,when we are most probably the ones who keep our car the most maintained therefore the "safer" cars on the road....although this can't be said for everyone in a modded car the logic is there

Where it becomes two lanes? Had some div in a newer focus ST tailgating me going into Freshbrook, in the wet! I pulled over. Like an annoying fly Some absolute tool sat at the lights on Rodbourne Road in a 16 plate white golf R gave it the beans when the lights changed. He must have hit 70 in a 30 by the outlet village. Unbelievable idiots.

Same, get plenty of overtakers (mainly Audi & BMW), traffic light revvers, motorbikers being plonkers with one doing a wheelie in front of me....

Not had one thumbs up, flash or wave yet but you'd think mine was stock minus the milltek. Just VAG owners on my road revving their 1.6 fake GTi badged golfs as I drive past xD

No it was just before where the bus depot is, funny thing was that one turned towards the tip and one pulled into the garage so gained about 3 seconds on me...... ! It was half 5 in the morning and I was still half asleep.

Strangely I got more people 'trying it on' when I had a silver 1.8ES than with a red FN2!

I'm actually amazed at the range of cars that try "baiting" me. The most bizarre have been a citroen c1 a tango orange 1.6 16 year old focus with a body kit that must have added (in the drivers mind) 120bhp. There's a white 6.3 amg merc that does it too 450Bhp. Why?

Plenty of attention from some prat in an SUV that couldn't reverse out of his parking spot at the local Sainsbury's. Now sporting a nice dent on rear wheelarch just above the wheel from where his tyre and bumper hit. To big to see out of I suppose. Did he stop? did he..............

Well... got my first wanted attention today. Cooper S going the other way started flashing and a lovely blonde lady waved at me and winked...

Very happy... until I remembered my missus was sat next to me. Guess who's jetwashing the patio in the rain

In my yoooof when I had the tuned focus ST, the fastest thing on the road and I was the stig, I tried it on with a Nissan Skyline.

I thought I had him, but it turns out he was playing with me. I know this as it spat 4ft flames out the exhaust and ****ed off into the distance at warp 9

I is a good boy now. Still my FN2 seems to draw venom from audi sooters for some reason. Had one driving literally on my bumper the other day. So bad, I had to pull over as I didn't want to get rear ended.

Most of the time I can't even be bothered racing, the car was made for the track or country lanes so I leave bombing it around town to the corsas and Audi's lol Doesn't stop them getting up my a**e and overtaking at silly speeds

I only play with the odd JDM for a laugh, there's GTO, GTR and a couple of Supras near me. I know of a lad with a tidy RX8 too who I need to say hi to, he always glares at me xD

Car - No.

Bike - Constant!

From cretins in Saxo's, Corsa's etc to a Lambo, 911, 458 etc

What is hilarious, even though my Speed Triple isn't the quickest, short shift to second and then wave goodbye to pretty much anything else on the road!

I make sure to short shift as much as possible to prove a point, up to the speed limit - "Don't be a tit in your chav mobile against a bike you utter 'tard."
