Why do Delhiites over-accessorise their cars with neon lights on tyres and fake stickers of sports cars?
A very bizarre thing to do
Bright neon lights are great when you want to entice people or check out some girls! But when it comes to driving a car, there’s really no reason to direct anyone’s attention! For Delhiites, neon lights are a sure sign that the driver wants to be the centre of attention.
It’s cool, what’s the harm?
I noticed this trend when I was 18. It was just for fun. When you can’t afford a sports car, you have to do something crazy to feel good. Some may consider it a show-off, but for young people, it’s an okay thing to do.

Delhiites like to show off. Period.
As we all know, Delhiites like showing off. It’s just a part of their culture, which essentially shows they would look more sophisticated and cool if they show off more.

Are Delhiites always overdressed? Do they really have a loud sense of fashion that needs to be toned down? Send in your take with your pic at firstname.lastname@example.org
