Techart is just awful. Very unappealing.

The liberty walk kit is cool for a full out bonkers kit, but obviously it turns your classy 997 into a very different kind of car. Snaketits' car looks incredible.

The vorsteiner kit isn't bad. Adds something to the car without drawing entirely too much attention to itself.

Oem is the only way to go(proven & tested) i wouldn't trust any of these kits at high speed which is what are cars our made for.I've heard the VT kit specifically the front bumper is no good if you start tracking your car, it causes overheating issues because of poor design.Not a fan of the TA kit it's just looks too big 80"s to me.I do like the LW one currently, but there's no going back to stock once you start cutting up your car for that kit & it's bound to out of style in the near future.Name:  100_0850.jpg

This is true, with LW its no going back and if it goes out of style(everything does) Oh well! Unless you plan on keeping that car for another 20 years when it becomes "retro" and cool again.

I like the VRT except the front bumper. It's too angular like the cheek guards on an old roman helmet or something. There were pictures online of a prototype version of the VRT front bumper with more rounded inlets. That one looked great but I'm told it was never produced in favor of the angular ones.

I like the LB as well again except for the front bumper. The two vented areas in front of the front wheels is too exaggerated in my opinion. It looks like the front splitter is floating and I don't like that. If I got that kit I'd be tempted to paint those vents in the body color.

This is the VRT curvier vent picture I was referring to. The upper corners seem rounder? Or is that an optical illusion?

handdoc will become famous soon enough
i went w/ the champion weeks 1 pieces..their 3 aero pieces (front lip, rear wing, and rear diffuser) are proved, highest quality, and only enhance the look of the car instead of trying to make it look like something else

just my 2 cents

are they "aero" kits or body kits? I can't imagine much time was spent in the tunnel or with CFD.
