      I think it looks damn awesome. It adds just the right amount of heft to the car.

      It's OK, It starts out good in the back but ends badly in the front, the side being somewhere between and average.

      Edit: I think the rear looks stock, that's probably why I like it.

      Why wont someone work on giving the car some power rather than just sticking more formed plastic onto it?

      The front is terrible. Everything else looks good.

      Not everyone needs retarded amounts of power to have fun in a nimble rwd car.

      I think the most fun I've ever had driving was when I had my E30 318is. God I miss that car.

      1. not too many people actually HAVE an FR-S/BRZ at their disposal to tune.
      2. How do you know they aren't ALREADY working on something?

      Why would anyone put a body kit on a FRS? It isn't 2002 anymore.

      It looks just like the concept that everyone was creaming over.

      I would think that putting R&D money into power adders, suspension, etc... would offer more return on investment than a body kit. How many body kits do you see versus power adders?


      I guess this was put out there because you can do it on a computer and release it.

      Im not saying you need a lot of power to have fun. I drive MGs so I know that. I am just imagining that the first company to release power adders will probably make more money than a company making a body kit.

      I'm usually against body kits, but this looks quite good.

      That being said, if I had an FRS I would NEVER do this to it

      It looks like a 90's era body kit. It's a great kit if that's the look you're going for.

      It actually looks good. Glad they didn't slap a gigantic Fast & Furius wing to it.

      Hopefully they will be a lot less than that. Time will tell.
