Wink [Fun] Daft Crossover options list

In keeping with the fantastic 'Centre Globe' nav system and disguise-a-dirty-great-transmission-tunnel 'Centre Rail', I thought it might be a laugh to bend our minds at other silly options that could be offered. For example:

* Mukwalls - tyres with a mud pattern embedded in the sidewalls; so your neighbours think your Crossover's more than a fashion statement.
* RackBack - an easy to use pull-out barbecue rack under the rear bumper; takes up to 80kg side of beef.

More suggestions welcome...

You said daft, but then that RackBack sounds genius to me!

how about a vertical exhaust coming up the A panel to make it look like a paris-dakar conversion?

i'm sure it's a euphamism for some deviant behaviour that he'd be more than happy to explain

I'll have you know 'Zeus' is most definately not a gay car.*


* Although, he does contain strut braces that were originally fitted to BGJ's 'Minx I'.

Do you think 'gay' is really transmissible through strut braces?
