I wouldn't. The style seems way dated too.

Okay good. I appreciate your input. I was very mixed by the look also but Duke is looking for a couple cars to sponsor for bimmerfest so I wanted to get a consensus.

I like the shape of the rear bumper but the diffuser looks like it came off a 1980s sports car....

I really dont know what the designers of these kits are thinking. Its like they dont even take into consideration the natural lines of the car when they are planning out the kit. The front doesnt match the rear of the car at all let alone the sides of the car.

And since when should the front of a wide body be wider than the rear?

So, from all your responses I get the feeling that you might not think it looks good.
