I like it, the only thing I don't like is the little bulge at the top outside corners of the air dams. It bulges out just a little too much for some reason and doesn't make it look like factory quality. It's almost like it doesn't fit 100%

Can't say it looks better or worse than stock, but it's very tastefully done.

its actually just a bolt on front bumper so the stock one can be reattached. I think it is very aggressive and with a few more minor touches would rival the Gemballa kit

Personally I think you car is over the top and looks tacky, but I am glad you like the look.

If someone said they would modify my car with that body kit and give me 100K, but I had to keep it that way, I wouldn't take the deal.
whats 100k have to do with anything. if someone offered me 5 million to live in michigan id turn it down. fine you dont like it. keep yours stock then.

I think Gemballa is a bad benchmark to use since their products are ****. However, I would hope that even those jokers would use a wind tunnel to test their aero kits on the Mirage GT.

The main concern I would have about this kit is how it would impact high speed aerodynamics. i.e. coefficient of drag vs. lift?

I also don't believe the wheels on the car are superior or even anywhere close to the factory Mg wheels in terms of weight and strength.

I know what E was trying to do here... it's basically a design exercise in aesthetics. He is a talented f-ing designer after all. Those creative types are a bit wacky sometimes.

I just wish form would follow function in this case rather than just bling.

If money were no object and I was to change a CGT, I personally would have DP design my aero and make the pieces in vacuum bagged CF, and commission BBS to make a 1 piece forged Mg mesh wheel, like the Manthey wheel, in factory sizes.

Or maybe get BBS to make the new RSR monoblock wheel in 20"

You know what, I like it.

I don't think there is anything wrong with changing Porsche's design. Its not like he molded new pieces on, cut it up, sliced and diced. He bolted a new bumper on, and obviously still has the stock one in his garage, and can switch back at any time.

The wheels, in my opinion are not to bad. Once again everyone has their own taste in wheels, but I don't think they are hideous like some are making them out to be.

Can't wait to see what is next.

I like the stock better, but with a few tweaks it has serious potential. My only complaint is the openings are too large. Size down the openings to maybe 3/4 of that would look pretty badass.
