Which car accessory would you most hate to receive this Christmas?

i pinched this from v8 super car site should be fun to see what members pick..
.
It's Christmas morning, you have kicked the dog out from in front of the log fire and settled down to open your presents. Among the usual shampoo, socks, and CDs is an unusual package..... What could it be? It's not big enough to be that new games console you wanted.... You carefully peel away the gift wrap, to be greeted with the logo of your 'favourite' car accessory store... What have they done?


Whilst we all hope to get just what we ask for each Christmas, the odd rogue present always slips through. So which car accessory would you least want to receive this year?

Definitely the beaded car seat cover. YUK!

I could think of plenty of things Id LIKE though. But hey, Christmas sucks, so a present that sucked would just be running with a theme, right?

What about the Taiwanese combo drving lamps and possum spotters, or those dash mount fans that melt in Aussie sunlight or the carwash with the smell and consistancy of pond slime.

Or those steering wheel covers made out sewn ups persian cats pelts and tracksuit elastic.

If Supa-cheap sells it my XR doesn't need it!! Got that!!!

I voted a drinks holder, because you cant drink and drive!

I wouldnt mind a beaded seat cover *hint* *hint*, they're pretty comfy

Re: Which car accessory would you most hate to receive this Christmas?

Drink holder. Why? Cause many years ago a friend gave me one that was a drink holder/armrest in one that hung on the drivers side window.
It was the cheapest, tackiest POS I had ever seen. I'm sure my fake smile and thank you couldnt hide the obvious looks of shock and disgust.

Took it home (in the box) and threw it in the bin. Thank god she didnt want me to try it out that day.
