Post Attention: christoph1371 ( Body Kits)

If Andy can design styles like Liberal/SYMS/Zero Sports/Prova kits, that would be nice. Since most body are geared toward other imports. It would be nice to see Impreza's make a statement about its stylings and its potential in the world of imports.

Peace ----

i'm generating a few examples for andy and i to discuss. i'm using the p1, 22b, eifel and prova as examples. when all is said and done he wants something a little different not something that is already out there. don't worry, the impreza clan will be able to make a statement at a reasonable price. this whole project will actually begin right after SEMA so stay tuned and keep the comments coming.

Why not design something new and good looking rather than copy other people's work. Like Chris said, Andy's are pro's so whatever you tell them to make, they'll make. Now go and draw something!

My thoughts exactly Alex.
People, don't worry too much. I'll pass the ideas andy and i come out with to everyone before molding and production begin. so, if you have original ideas, please feel free to send them our way.

Sure it's good to be original, but there are no P1 parts available, so if they made replica's of them, many people would buy the P1 replica parts. I personally would much rather see p1 parts than an original body kit.

Thumbs up

Alex, I have to disagree and agree with soon
What if his original bodykits do not go over well with the public? You have a safer bet by going with replica parts of products not affordable to the general public once the quality is still great. Isn't that the japanese way?

Nick - who feels alex is worried I will ask to get CUSCO replica stuff

OK I got it! Make a widebody kit like Trials's but one that is intergrated a little better. I like the idea of a wide body kit but their is a little ugly and very expensive.





Oh yeah here is a link to alot of body kits to look at. http://www.takakaira.com/aerokits/ae...enu.php3?cat=7

Hope that helps

Yeah...And make it heavy duty fiberglass. The roads out here in NY are crap. Ripped my AMG bumper off like 3 times and bent 2 rims.

How about a front lip spoiler out of something other then fiberglass? I want something that will flex if hit and not break or shatter. Oh and how about some front flaps that are shaped to fit the stock sideskirts?

Question

I stumbled across a kit I liked when reading the other thread (I think) but I can't find it again. Does anyone know of a kit named Iosio or something like that?

You want to make plenty of money from us? Make paintable mud guards for the front wheel well. I'll buy a pair. Heck, make paintable mud guards for the rear wheel well, too!

The objective of this whole thing is to create an inexpensive kit that looks good and we all can afford. I suppose andy would like to make some extra dough on the side, but that's capitalism for yah! Now, if i made anything of this, that would be nice too. But, my objective is to get all you RSers some swank gear and some mean looking cars.
