That is to say 'The Owners make their skyline ugly', cos they all start off pretty!

Cheap obnoxious rims, and multi-coloured dashboards kill it.

Good list above, might I add that poor/wrong offset wheels really don't help.

its rape on a classic skyline to trash them with big wings if the rest of the car is stock or poor paint jobs when engine bay is un painted.

And Ex trashed UK cars....

Ugly to me is;

Non-Nissan/Nismo bodykits - but - there are limitations! R32s can have all the homologated stuff, lip and boot spoilers, spats and bumper vents. R33s lip and bumper vents, R34s maybe the single bonnet naca. The rest look daft IMO.

Non standard paint looks cack too, Midnight purple r32s for eg.

Clear indicators on 32s or any smoked/darkened/lighted led'd halfords style lights on any skyline.

'Carbon' bonnets, especially with big vents - they probably weigh a lot more than stock as they're made of the cheapest type of fibreglass and look chav IMO

Big tachos and dials - bright lights all over the interior telling you anything and everything that you don't need to know. In something like a 32, period stack (brand) gauges look good on the centre console, flashy ones, don't.

Blue tipped exhausts, or any really 'rice' (to quote the Americans) looking drainpipes.

That will do for now

For me it has to be chrome wheels and a OTT big spoiler.

depends on the style of the car! graphics are cool on a race car but no graphics, chrome or big spoilers on street cars!!

each to their own though! so if you like it thats all that matters!

Number one thing for me that makes a skyline ugly is big chrome wheels, lambo doors, etc. A close second would be drift bumpers/skirts and poorly fitted+finished body kits.

No rear spoiler doesn't make the car ugly(imo), although I think it looks a little off. To each their own.

I'm going with wrong ride height, I really dislike it when cars are as high as monster trucks!

I'd have to say cheap wheels, bad offset, horror altezza/aftermarket tail lights. I haven't seen many "bad" examples lately... But nothing ticks me off more than ruining a GT-R with cheap goods
