Tuning Gone Wrong: CarLashes- The Worst “Mod” We’ve EVER Seen Edition

**Update: After checking the CarLashes website, it seems that these are available for a number of models including most BMWs. Oh goody.**

Our famous Tuning Gone Wrong series has surfaced some of the worst modifications to cars we’ve ever seen. But after a loyal Derbi sent us a picture over Twitter of the newest modification craze to zee VW Beetle, we firmly believe that we are now witnessing the most unjustified and terribleĀ thing ever done to a car. Trust us, we believe just as much as the next person that cars take on a personality of their own, but when VW Beetle owners start to put headlight eyelashes on their vehicles things have gone too far. Way, way too far.

They’re being called CarLashes and becoming nothing short of an epidemic. These two pictures were taken locally, however, AutoBlog has reported that this trend has gone national. God help us all.

It was hard for any of us at the Daily Derbi to believe that there was something to make us dislike the Beetle anymore than we already did, but the eyelash-loving weirdos who’ve chosen to glue these to their Bugs have proved us wrong. If you’re a Daily Derbi reader and you drive around a ‘Lashed Beetle, please write us an email and let us know what it’s like to be driving Fran Drescher’s head. Thanks to Justin for the pic!

This is on the same spectrum as the “car balls” with the balls being on the classless end and the lashes being on the “blogger mom” end. Both make me sick and, in my opinion, merit vandalism. ;)

I agree with Barry…

these make me ashamed to own MY beetle (no, nothing else does)… and it has no lashes (I’m an elitist beetle owner anyway).
