This is quite literally the equivalent of someone getting a m5/m3 styled body kit for their 1 series
Your example is better, true. Still though, the guy in a 318i with M3 badges is usually looked at as a poser who can't afford the real thing.

See but the real thing doesn't technically exist as a production car, so no one can buy it even if they had the money, thus you'll never see one on the road. So there is really nothing to pose off of.

Pretty much a loop-hole in the tuning no-no rule book

I dunno.. I feel we should embrace the idea and look of our cars. Having a body kit that makes it look like another car would just be kinda lame I feel. But hey, personal preference, maybe I'd feel different if I saw an actual version of it and not a render.

Understandable, on the bright side... One can always just put back on the OEM bumper

What we need is someone to make a version of the Japanese Netz Toyota Hyogo front end over here (get rid of the emblem, car needs no emblem)...and not charge $2k for it...



Sorry, but I'd take a Hyundai Genesis front end all day over the FT-1 inspired front end styling... didn't look good on the Rod Millen Celica (remember that thing...), doesn't look good on the FR-S.

Rear end though, way better than stock fake diffusor panel...

But Racecar lol

I think this should do the trick. Much more FT-86 OEM-ish... with dash of LFA, Yaris Hybrid-R & axe murderer. Front has integrated splitter(s) under the uber side air intakes (Would use them strictly for brake ducts as one can never can have to much cooling)

Looks really exotic. I would buy both front and back without a second thought.
