Modified Taxis

Recommended Posts

I dont know about where you live but around the west mids there has been a steady increase in the number of modified taxis which seems a bit odd!

I got in one on sat night which was a vectra, it was lowered on 17's, had lexus lights and a noisey exhaust!

i've also seen a Mondeo preperly decked with twin exhausts and tints!

Theres a even a black cab i've seen that has twin boxter ovals and a DVD in the dash!

When i get into a taxi i dont want to be thrown around by coilovers and have my aching head damaged by a popping gropup N exhaust! :angry:

Is it allowed where you live?

The 7 seaters round here have DVD screens in the head rests..

A few years ago there was a Cav GSi with big rims going round Derby.

I wouldnt have thought that would be allowed due to the stringent plating test mot thingy.

DVD's in headrests in mpv's is pretty standard now I wouldn't call them a modification exactly but lowered taxi's with loud modified exhausts wouldn't get much business around Cardiff.

I used to see a modded EVOVI taxi in Leamington Spa. Now that's one taxi I wouldn't mind using at all :)

Quite a few in Worcester have alloys and Lexus lights.

Theres only one that I'd pay to go home in though, a silver IS200 :yes:

There's a Skyline GT-R that has a taxi company advertisement stuck to his door, but it's not a taxi (I don't think :unsure: )

I think there used to be an Escort Cosworth somewhere about here but dont think it would have been a taxi long. How much would that cost to run? And would the costs be transferred to the passengers! lol :huh:

One local taxi (a vectra) has subs in it. Fine on the way out to a club, but rubbish on the way home!!

There was a program on bravo last night called boozing britian and there was a taxi on it that operates in the isle of man that had turned the back of the car into what the driver calls a disco :wacko: it had flashing lights and a sub and really powerful Speakers in the back and he had installed c.c.t.v with a screen in the front so he could keep an eye on who's in the back.

Local to us their's a couple of Impreza Turbo's on Taxi, Accord Type-R's and the odd modded vectra...

A few year ago a mate of mine put a Cavalier 4x4 in Taxi and before that had a Sapphire RS Cosworth in Taxi also..... :eek:

Slightly off subject - theirs an Instructors car knocking around that's a Civic VTi (3dr P reg i think) with Lexus rear lights - lowered - Twin Exit exhausts and lowereed.. :thumbsup::lol:

Rash.

I'd give ANY taxi in Cardiff my business if I could find one on a saturday night!
