Warning Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

Which one do you prefer.The American version with black rapper Xibit and West Coast Customs or the UK version with that wanna-be black man/rapper idiot Tim Westwood and Carisma Automotive.

Me personally it has to be the original Pimp my Ride with Xibit.That Westwood bloke is a complete idiot,hes a skinny white DJ and trys to act act all black and gansta with his baggy clothes and stupid slang words.
I have just watched Pimp my Ride UK pimp an old Fiat Panda into some silly green skateboarding freak of a car.Oh and a hearse into a rock bands road car/tour bus.Whatever next.

Not really a fan of those shows, not completely against them just not for me.

I prefer "<add vehical here> is Born" series on Home and Leisure with Mark Evans

- I think the money used in these programs is put to good use!

Re: Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

seriously uncool shows...who would want to drive those misfits they create! a huge pile of playstation bling bling crap showed into a refurbished corpse of a car. Since they don't do any engine work or mechanical work, i always wondered how far they get once they turn the ignition key.

I Like "rides" on discovery.. thats a cool show.

Hate them both really. But Westwood just needs a slap upside the heead aiight.

Just looked up Westwoods website and he recently performed in Maidstone @ Ikon, I now know why I stop going to Maidstone for nights out!

Wonder what would Xibit think when he watch Westwood's show on TV. Westwood is really embarrassing comparing to the americans.
Not a big fan on those show especially they keep replaying the same episode. Would prefer a motor show that include heavy modification(lighty will also do) on performance.

I have to agree. the American one is amusing as it's so naff, but the british one is just too naff to comprehend - I can't actually get myself to watch it, It's bad enough when I shout at Westwood on the radio! ("You're not black you daft [email protected]!" etc)

I saw that and I could not believe my eyes.At least that was for a good cause though.

Westwood is a wannabe black gangster rapper/hip hopper and Whacko Jacko is a wanabe pretty white boy.The world and some of its inhabitants is a very strange place and people.

Re: Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

Xzibit for me,

I only found out after series 2 and 3 had been shown that all of his punters were having the work done as repayment for the good they had been doing in their community or at home. As for that clown 'Wastewood' what is all that about????? as for Bez's black cab being done (one of only two UK PMRs I've seen) how come???? Its not like Bez is short of a few bob??

Xzibit, Q, Big Dane and the rest keep up the good work and keep making me laugh.

Anyway minor rant over.

32 days to Xmas or so Sally Taylor on South Today has just told me.....what is Santa bringing you (may be this deserves a new thread)

Regards

Re: Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

Theres a big catch to the Pimp my Ride series.The cars owner/owners have to sign a disclaimer form before their car is pimped.The owners of the cars dont get to keep the cars.They are taken away and sold off.The owners get a royalty fee and part of the money from the sale of the car.

Every time the programme is shown the cars owners get a royalty fee.Its a bit of a scam really.You get to drive your own car for about 1 minute when its been Pimped,then once the camera goes off,you get kicked out of the car and they take the keys to it off you.

It was leaked from a person that worked on the Pimp my Ride set in the USA.He got fired by MTV and decided to tell the whole world wide web how the programme really works.

Thats old news now,I thought you were all aware of this at this stage.

Re: Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

Tim Westwood is a vicar's son from Peterborough, I sh*t you not

I've never taken him remotely seriously, but after I found out his background I laugh my socks off everytime he opens his noisy gob, how anyone even in the rap fraternity take him seriously is totally beyond me

Don't 'dis ma man WestWood! Get it right dawg - his owld maaan was the BISHOP of Peterborough until 1998! He was the biiig Dawg. Bow Bow wow wow, peace.

Westwood in the careers office at school.
Hi I'm a pale, lanky streak of ****** and the son of a Bishop. I think I should become black and present the radio 1 rap show.
Councillor:- Erm, perhaps you should consider following your father into the church or maybe sell double glazing?
Westwood:- You disrespectiin' me foo'?!! I kill yo as$. Where's ma nine?
Concillor:- Please sit down Timothy. Your getting yourself in all of a lather again.

He's a complete joke.

Re: Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

first things first I think the uk show is a washout, an Westwood is a plank, like most have said he is a white bloke an he just cant pull off the black gangster type thing.
But hey if you could go around doin the kind of work he is doin, for the money he is getting, you would.
So just remember he is out for what he can get, so fair play to the chap

Can you cite a source for that? I've seen Internet message boards chatter (nothing official) about Overhaulin' forcing its participants to sign a contract saying they cannot sell their cars for a certain amount of time, but I've never heard or seen anything about the other and forced sales of cars.

Re: Pimp my Ride with Xibit or Pimp my Ride with Westwood?

To be fair to Westwood (even though he is a **** and an embarresment) he has been involved in the UK Hip-hop scene for the last 20 years. Yes - hes a white bloke and he talks in hip hop speak but so does eminem. You shouldnt diss him for the way he speaks - all his contemporaroes speak liek that so for him its normal. and i also think its unfair to say he wants to be black - speaking like a wanna be gangsta is not a 'black thing', its an american/peurto-rican/ghetto thing.

Im not trying to back up westwood because he really is an OTT joke, but he has been responsible for keeping UK hip-hop alive when it was largely overlooked after the last US explosion in the later 80's.

He is a crap DJ though.
