Ugliest Accessory Ever?

Wow, this thing is UGLY..... have any of you seen anything worse bolted onto a defender? Even 22" rims aren't this bad in my opinion.

ECR 4 had the same light pod on it. On their D90 I actually thought is looked Ok, but I love light pods, and am a Rally junkie.

The ECR job doesn't look that bad, I think if the one on ebay was color matched it wouldn't be as horrible. I'll have to dig around but Martin posted some pics of a Defender with some really bad mods

I thought it was ugly when I saw it on ECR4 and I think it is even uglier on the posted pic. Why? - is all I keep asking myself.

The E-bay job really has a LOT of ugly going for it. The light pod, plus the other two lights on the bumper. None of the parts actually match in color, and you have 8 lights of 3 different types on the front end. The wing scoops are pretty bad too

I don't recall where I saw it, but the Defender that get my vote for ugliest award (and I know a bunch of you saw it too) was the one where someone made their own tube bumpers--big, big wrap around things. Just looked sorry. I wanted to shoot it and put it out of its misery.

As for the Pods, I don't like them--they relate to absolutely nothing on the vehicle--you have an angular designed vehicle and then this rounded pod melted-wax looking thing. Might work if it was more angular. Just my opinion.

For the record guys, the ECR pod is made by QT Services.

The pod on eBay is a copycat version, not to mention butt ugly.

It doesn't matter if they are the same or not - in my opinion, which is worth the price paid for it, they are both ugly.

Did a Disco f*ck a Defender there or what?

I, personally, love the clock mounted above the rear view (because it's the same shitty ass clock as the dash), and those Hardcore On-Roading videos.

Its Back, it just showed up for a service appointment. Its funny that it was recently mentioned and then it appeared. Warning please dont be eating or drinking when you open one of the pics. I dont want to be left responsible for you choking or getting your computer wet.
