OMG what have you done!

Citroën took ages to make a good car and you do that to it. I assume you have big white trainers with flashing lights in the heals, a white shell suit and gold chains around your neck. Still underneath its a great little car, just lose the stickers the car says it all on its own.
You jelly?

I thought I saw yours at Chesterfield TESCO today but it wasn't. frown

I am not a big fan of the stickers as I think it makes a great car look cheap and crap to be honest, but it's your car so do what you wish.

Not a fan of the DS3 but its your car do what you like with your own car you paid for it nobody else so enjoy it. I dont see anyhting to bad with the stickers if it was a celica or evo done up in stickers people on here would thinks its nice. It seems if you haven't got a expensive car or a sports car that everyone else has your looked down at just ignore them.

Ph double standards

Enjoy your car

Love it. What has it cost you so far? I bet no where near the price of a Racing and for only 13bhp less.

Put me down in the "Love the car, Hate the stickers" column.

You may not be a chav, but those stickers will make you LOOK like one!

I came here asking for honest feedback and won't fall out with any of you over your comments.

To some the car may seem chavvy but the fact that I don't drive like a douche(most of the time) and am currently employed & finished school moves me as far away from the "chav" label as I'd hope to be (plus the addition that I don't own one baseball cap or tracksuit!).

Put a couple of hundred into the car since purchasing it; Silicon hoses, replacement radiator hoses and a few other bits whilst I'm saving up for a replacement intercooler.

Once done I'll be getting another remap and eventually replacing the clutch which should move up the power significantly more than the DS3R!

Hey,

Ive seen you around Bolton, I've got a white ds3 also 120bhp though. Where did u get the decals from?? (if you dont mind a local copycat!) also did u get a full induction kit or the k&n replacement panel filter? Either way was there a noticeable improvement?

Love the fact that you'd had to have read all the negative views in the stickers and you still ask openly to buy some!! You mad!

Nice car but, you guessed it, ditch the stickers. It looks like a dealers demo car.

The vinyls were from a company called street-race, you'll find them on Google, they do a bunch of vinyls for the DS3 and other cars.

Quite a few mods since my original post. The engine's now running at 202bhp and 211 with NOS smile

Recent de-cat


Induction kit. Plastic pipes have also been replaced with hard pipes from Forge


Nitrous kit needs a bit of tidying up before I post any pictures xD

Again, IMO nice car, sounds like you've done some tasteful mechanical mods.

But the stickers are awful. The DS3 and Citroen ones are just plain tacky (especially the 'R' one on the back), and IMO the side ones don't look like anything 'styled' - to be honest they look like someone threw paint down the side of your car.

I'd wager that with a little time (and dare I say it, maturity?), you'll want to take them off too...

Time will tell, maybe..

I'm 23 at the moment and still love them. Eventually though, they're going to start lifting. We'll see what happens when the time comes. smile

Stickers are horrid, also confuses me why people do this, each to their own though. I'm also confused as to why you'd buy a new car, with warranty, then void the warranty, knowing full well it'll break down as its French. I had a C4 VTR+ HDI as a company car, turbo went within 2 year, plus other niggly faults, all of which would cost a fortune without a warranty.

The engine blew on this after 8k with the mods in place. Engine was replaced under warranty. The dealership are fully aware of the mods in place (you can't really miss them) and still cover all service and warranty work.

You're unlucky I guess.

Well I was about to tell you that it seems your car has been vandalised by some hoodies with some random stickers, but that seems to have been covered already.

I really do have a soft spot for DS3's.
