This is the cold truth behind MTV's Pimp My Ride.

The popular car modifying show on MTV, called Pimp My Ride, was without a doubt a sensation back in the early 2000s. However, the show and modification style was soon outdated but, to petrolheads, the show was pretty much cringeworthy from the start.

That's not enough to justify it being a total failure though. If you dive deeper into the reality of it, like from what past guests on the show went through, you'll realise that it was nothing more than getting good TV footage and not in the guests best interests at all.

There have been numerous accounts where past guests have revealed that what looked like to have only taken a few days to complete on TV, actually took between 5 and 8 months. During that time, guests were left without a ride and had to spend additional cash for transport.

Furthermore, a lot of the modifications were immediately uninstalled right after filming for the show, as they either risked driver safety or were so badly installed that the driver experience was terrible.
