This $206 Jeep Nose Job Won’t Solve Your Dacia Duster’s Inferiority Complex

If what they say about imitation being the sincerest form of flattery is true, then this Dacia Duster is paying a special kind of tribute to Jeep.

Now, the rhinoplasty won’t fool anyone with the slightest knowledge about Jeep’s cars nor will your Duster all of a sudden climb a few steps up the social status ladder, but you should get other drivers on the road rolling their eyes and smiling, so that’s got to count for something, right?

You’ll have to perform the surgery yourself, swapping the Dacia’s stock grille for the seven-slot Jeep nose, which one of our readers found for sale on eBay by a Russian guy who’s asking $58 for the grille itself, and a hefty $149 flat rate for delivery worldwide, including the US, because you know, there are tons of Dusters roaming the streets here…

If you’ve found any other conversions of the sort, do show in the comments.

    Inferiority complex? Really?

    The idea of the new grille is pretty nice. Yet, I don’t really understand why people should have an inferiority complex with a Dacia Duster. What are you, Donald Drumpf!?

    The Dacia Duster must be bought by people with the lowest inferiority complex possible, it’s transport for people who don’t give a shit about cars

      Or by people who want an affordable SUV…
