      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.

      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.

      i guess but... still... would be nice to not have to pay 6k for a kit, void warranty etc... would be nice to just have some out of the box power...

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

      I like how people are bitching about the power even though they've never driven it. ZOMG! It doesn't pull a sub-5-second 0-60, it must suck!

      Ever heard of driving enjoyment rather than stat racing? Considering every review of the thing has been absolutely glowing, I'm going out on a pretty strong limb that the power is more than adequate.
