and i think the kit looks good and serves its purpose not everyone is looking for absolute perfection. im ok with my car looking good from far but far from good.
Thank you! Well said. I do give respect to those that are looking for perfection, but this car is definitely not it. It's a gutted,620 wheel horsepower,full suspension drift car. I would love to perfect the body kit and lay down a flawless paint Job but it would be a waste of money.

I like what you've done with the body kit. The car has a sort of mad max feel to it.

agreed. Car is far from a POS. honestly im not going to lie, iv never liked ANY ED kits before this, but i think they REALLY stepped their game up with this kit for our cars, i really like how this look, and am honestly suprised at the quality of the fitment. Wanting more pics please. But all in all im really impressed and the car looks great dude.

Hating because I make 600+ wheel horsepower on only 10psi of boost!! All of you guys with the positive comments, thank you. I have never came onto someone's thread and bashed their car. It's not my style. I'm an army combat veteran, I guess I was taught a lil more respect than that.

Common courtesy is to express your opinion politely.. I mean you've worked hard to build this car and some guy just comes and craps on it.. also I'm with levie this ed kit doesn't look half bad.. I can see some areas that need work but as you said you basically slapped it on. I'm seriously considering this since I need new fenders and have some rust on the quarters. Just wish I could see one in person first
