Default Decat F-Type R, 6 month ownership YouTube Video



helllooo, so lately my friends have urged me to make a video about whatís on my car and a 6 month ownership video. So I did, since this being my first video, not knowing what to really talk about, I wanted to get some constructive criticism from you guys! Below I have the link attached.
thanks for your help!

what you think about how the spoiler looks is your opinion haha.
but for the hood, I have no explanation other than I was playing around too much.
as for the tires, the front left and right are different brands but same size, obviously different tread pattern, but the reason was because the other brand was the only tire available with the right size around me.

-I donít see how I ďruinedĒ a perfectly nice car from a dent on the hood and two different branded tires... there are other worse ppl that have actually ďruinedĒ a car 😂

Not a fan of various messages on the car, as it detracts a great deal from F-type looks. The whole point of driving the car like F-type is that you don't need to do anything else to make it noticeable. This is not unlike wearing Rolex watch with a T-shirt that has "Look at my Rolex" print. Over the top. Classless.

Dented hood is very visible, take it to the paintless dent removal place to get it fixed.

Personally, the overall picture is a cliche of a bad taste, something you'd expect to see done to a well-used Civic, not F-type.

To me, both are evidence of lack of care and lack of pride of ownership. That, and having different tire brands like that is outright dangerous if you ever push your car. Different tires = different handling characteristics = car will do unexpected and unpredictable things when pushed.

If you take anything from this thread, is to get a set of appropriate and matching tires on all 4 corners. Tires responsible for how your car handles, how quick it is off the line, how safe it is in the corners, how much distance it takes to come to a complete stop. This is way too important to f*-around with.

Can they do aluminium panels? I'd heard they're very difficult to work ...

Yes, I do see your point on trying too much on the car. Iím thinking youíre referring to the spoiler? Because thatís basically the only thing that I have on the exterior lol.

For the tires, that info really did help a lot. I knew it took a toll but I didnít realize it was that bad. Iím currently looking to replace those fronts to compliment the rears that I have.

The hood dent, Iím currently looking for shops to fix it and compare prices. Most of the shops overcharge due to me being so young with a nice car. Iím not trying to work 4 jobs now 😂

Half of the shops say itís going to be very hard because itís right on the body line crease... 1 shop has said the whole hood needs to be replaced 😂

The cool thing about car mods is they are personal. There is no right or wrong.

My question is why the 40 aspect ratio in the rear? That makes the tire taller and thinner, with less rubber on the road. Stock is a 30, so that may be why you are having the rubbing issue.

Previous owner must have fitted the wrong sizes, then, stock is definitely 295/30 rear and 255/35 front for 20".

Open your door and look in the door sill towards the rest of the cart. You should see a sticker like this.

Pirelli Scorpions might be the absolute last tire I would put on this car. Did you mis-speak and mean something else.

To me, various stickers on bumpers, windows, hood are more offensive than you spoiler or overly aggressive lowering. Sure, spoiler is over the top but at least it is defensible. I wouldn't do that to my car, but I can at least relate to others that would. Stickers.. are just ugh. Unless you won something of note, and these represent credible trophy/notable scene kills, simply get rid of them. They don't make you or the car look good.

Not for me either but please drive safe.

Would suggest you get your tires fixed as soon as possible considering you're pullied + tuned and RWD.
