the rear stick on fenders look bad on the rear door in that front shot. you can see how much they stick out. too bad they cant just end up flush with the front door.

That could easily be fixed by a good body place, if you are going to the trouble to go widebody might as well do a little extra work.

That 05 kit looks knarly!!!! The 06 one looks sick too, minus the wing I think.

I agree...its got that stupid stretched tire look that veedubbers love so much...it looks asinine.

of course the rear flares are an easy enough fix, just have them molded in...what is this thing made out of?

i agree though, the wheels are ugly, and i think the wing looks a little bigger than the real WRC car.

Just wondering, how much lighter is carbon fiber compared to regular fender + body material?

IMHO the lower grill, the extra piece on the hood, and the wing all work in combination to make this the ugliest kit i have ever seen...my .02

Isnt 8,000 for the carbon kit? The other material is only something like 4000? I think I rather have the APR kit, if only for the confidence they are actually in America..

It does not look alright...its just easily dismissed because its an actual race car. On a street car when looks really tend to count...it just looks ugly. Widebodies are nice but I just see poor execution. I'm sure they didn't put a bigger rear bumper so that the consumers can cut cost..but at the expense of it flowing right.
