I retract my previous statement after seeing updated pictures. That looks horrible. It almost looks like x6 in some pictures... Plus those wheels just ruined it for me.

I agree, looks terrible. Way too much going on.

Anyone else notice the worst possible tires (Nitto Invos) on this thing? Obviously not built for performance.

The wheels were put on at the absolute last minute because the wheels and tires we ordered were not ready.

Looks not bad, but those wheels need to go...I'd take this one over vorsteiner one.

It's not "clean" enough. Too many vents. The vents on the side skirts are the worst IMO. There should only be one set of vents on the rear bumper. Front bumper is too busy.

I really dont know what to think... I guess it looks like what they were aiming for. But I think I'm in the same boat as a lot of people when I think that widebodies of this magnitude just look out of place on the beautiful lines of the the stock body. I wish someone would just do a mild widebody that adds only a few inches max to the rear fenders and an extra inch or so to the front. You wouldnt lose the lines of the car but you would certainly stand out without looking ricey.

Exactly how I feel. A widebody where you wouldn't know it's a widebody without looking at it a few times, just wide enough to stuff in slightly wider tires.

Vents and wheels need to go. One color car will look much better. Not bad.

I think it has potential...maybe with some better wheels and less black accent here & there might clean up the look a bit.
