I see that and think that thing, with any weight on it at all, would snap off easy. Plus it looks silly as anything.

What are you kidding!? That things gotta add 400lbs of downforce over the non-powered wheels at like 10MPH!!!!!!!111!!!! Thats like equal to like 100HP man!



All kidding aside, the whole deal is at least a quality job and not shoddy 10 minute instant rice.

body kits are almost always funny. I guess you could really pull it off if the body kit was the same color as the car, or at least seemed to belong. Most cars with kits that I've seen look as if they were just installed the night before and looked real rough. The front dam is green, the side skirts are red, the rear lip might be black or white...stock wheelcovers. Oh, and one of the headlights or tailights is always broken.

Actually the tail was held on by lag bolts or something at the base, and they hadn't even tried to hide them. Looks like they paid several hundred doolars for the wing and then slapped it on with the cheapest hardware available. Looked like crap.
