I agree the kit looks great, but I've decided not to do it.

Primary reason is I don't like that it looks like an obvious add-on. It doesn't blend well into the body at the edges of the kit. I realize this is true with most bolt ons, and that's exactly why I don't like most of them.

I keep putting the stock car on my screen with the modded car, and can't decide which one I like better. Given that, its not worth the price.

The good news is that if I change my mind I can always add it later for the same price.

The kit looks good, but the cheap ass headlights kinda kill it. That is really the only thing holding the FR-S back from looking totally awesome with this kit.

dont know if its just perception or not but the rear wheels look like they have a slight concavity. i looked up the wheels on their site and they have em listed at 19x8.5 +45, but the rear wheels look to either have a wider width of a slightly lower offset

Hm... maybe. I'm not sure. But that's Jack's show car. Later down the road, he'll have another one for his "personal".

Probably. the one we saw in Long Beach had different set of wheels on each side for demo purposes.

Yea, I didn't notice it in Long Beach until someone else pointed it out. Then I was like "how the heck did I miss that!" Just shows once again, I'm not a wheel guy.

They were running spacers on the wheels at the event (if you notice, they are 5x114.3 instead of 5x100). That may explain why they don't look like you're expecting them to.

According to Myles in in his Racecomp article, the fenders are already rolled. Huge plus there.



Well look at that, my first post in the Forum. Hello people's.
