Blame the Japanese - they're nuts over the whole "People Mover" thing at the moment ...

Yeah it's actually a trend in Japan to do up micro car/van things to the max and wack on very spun out body kits in other words ricey.
The whats cool in Japan is a done up Suzuki Wagon R, woohoo not.

If you get the chance take a look at the new Fiesta and the new VW Polo I think it is. Very similar lines on both cars. I can't remember if it's the Polo for sure but it's in the new Top Gear mag. :confused:

The good old days of the hot hatch are gone. The Renault Clio Sport is the only real contender, but it is still ugly.

Easy mate, just use the IMG tag.. it just points to the url of a pic, rather than you having it and uploading it as an attachment etc. :thumbup:
