What Unique charges its clients is based on a lot of factors not just the parts and labor. They have a huge celebrity clientele and offer them a discreet and fast turnaround sumtimes bumping them ahead of current jobs, all for a price, plus the experience these guys have with working on european sports cars, you couldn't juss take a lambo anywhere to get that stuff done....

Its really nice that you can bring your Lambo there, but its not nice them morons would jack it up by the pumkin and then use air tools to tighten them lugs to death. Installing audio sytems and working with fiber glass is different than being a mechanic, which these guys are not. I also love how they spray paint everything...even steering wheels.
That Herse they did sucked. I mean audio wise its awesome but they slapped a stupid looking induction hood on that car and did nothing else. the engine was nothing big but a swap. I saw no real Unique customization except audio. I think they should stick to audio only. Don't try to be overhaulin or any other custom car shows.
Foose would have sent that Herse to heaven.

The Hearse was crap..inside audio was awesome but I see nothing custom anywhere else. Shoulda pulled that rag of it..chop the top few inches. slam it. install velocity stacks sticking out of the hood along with engine work. change the nose of it to something more round, flush mounth them bumpers....etc. To me its was a audio job and engine swap..oh yeah an rims. BIG DEAL!
the little shops aroumd my way do that all the time an d they charge normal prices. NOT some sick markup that Unique Whips get away with.

Thats fine and all, so why when a regular guy came in with the Z3 he wanted to charge him 20k for one sub and moderate system. IN a little tiny car non the less...RIPOFFFFF!

ok well do your little shops get seen on national tv and have sponsors throwing endorsments at them and are they doing shaqs bus and mercedes also i didnt think so so keep your mouth shut and quit trying to slam someone else just cause you dont have thier glory and feedback if you think they suck so bad then lets see you do the things they do on your budget i mean i would love to see how bad you would mess up a 06 lambo or mercedes for that matter cause im sure you dont have the money to pay off fuck ups do you

Hey Minders. I met Foose at Back to the Fifties car show in Minniapolis MN 2 years ago. He was really cool. Also met Courtney Hansen from Overhaulin at World of Wheels, March 2005. She was cool at first but later that night she was walking through the show and posing for pictures. I asked if she would stand by my Trans-Am (KITT) so I could take a pic and her manager said, for fifty bucks. I said for $50 she better be topless! They gave me a dirty look and walked away. What a bitch.

I thought that was very rude that her manager told me she gets $50 just to stand next to my car and let me snap a picture. There was a truck parked next to my car, she got into the truck, hands on the wheel and let them take pics. I asked the guys with the truck, they said they didn't pay $50. I even e-mailed the Overhaulin show and told them how I felt. Lost all respect for her. Old Courtney must really think she is a big deal. I'm glad they kicked her off Overhaulin, I like the new girl better.
