That thing is pure tits, but I agree with Sal though....

..weak offsets/wheels.


The car has so much more potential.

Pretty retarded IMO. another GTS bites the dust.
Ditto. I cringed like whenever I see someone take a beautiful mid-year vette and turn it into a tacky resto-mod or drag car.

Pretty fitting name: it intercepts the good taste somebody showed in buying a M3 GTS and totally eliminates it.

Look into Lamin-X. It's a heat shrink transparent vinyl that is easily reversible. I paid £10 for a sheet that did both indicators.

Those who don't like it, can you express what you don't like about it?

...something doesn't add up.
Just guesstimating:
20k
6k
6k
3k
4k
2k
.5k

so i guess when you take into account $100/hour labor, then include paint....
i guess it adds up ?

I like the wing. Its size is just right.

I never like a race car started out as an NA & then they soup it up with forced induction.

I think it looks mean as hell. Those who don't like it are thinking of it as a daily driver not a race car
