I've got this basic taxi too and am also feeling the need to modify it. I agree with 5 wide, in principal but my streets really are narrow, too narrow, mainly. I think it was the medieval town planners fault, they didn't foresee 6 wide vehicles. So I'm going to make the taxi less wide, losing the wheel arches altogether.

hi andy!,i ve considered 5 wide,of course,but,eversince my dog died,i feel uninspired,also,i felt i needed more parts to do it right!,i ll probably refine them further, at a later date,i found the original even less inspired ,so i wanted to change them as soon as possible,i m thinking about the busses too!,and the passenger train as well,[as you already knew]i just needed them done for the upcoming hotel de ville -public transport building!it s a combo that s never been done yet!,so i m giving a try on it!
thanks for your visit andy!,it s appreciated!
This is a really good mod but I reckon it may look better as a 5 wide. The back end looks a little odd but I think you've got a better idea up your sleeve. This is great work as always but I think you could do a new and better design as I think many of lego's original vehicles aren't as good as they could be.
