Waste of clear headlights, foot pedals, and wheels... Its not too bad execution wise, just bad design wise. And they left the tail lights and side markers yellow... odd if they have clear headlights, the big ticket item.

Honestly, that's pretty bad. It's just a bunch of junk bonded to the body. I don't dislike some of the widebody kits, but this one is not even molded in, just stuck on. Naa, I don't like it a bit.

I really don't like how some people do the front bumper and sideskirts and leave the rear bumper stock. It comptely destroys the fluidity of the car. The rear bumper needs to flow with the sideskirts. If he did that the car wouldn't look half bad.

Don't care too much for the interior. Never been a fan of red leather.

I have to pass on this one. It looked ok until the rear view. Why would you put on a glued on kit? Where you can see the flares coming into the lights at a different height really looks bad.

It def looks cheap. I am not a fan of doing all that painting of the interior, but for some its great I guess. The weels on the car are horrendous w/that kit as well.

It is too bulky and just odd proportionally. And those rims are to small for a car that is 'supposed' to seem larger. Just my opinion!

There's no symmetry! I can't stop looking at the rear end, and it's not in a good way. Reminds me of weightlifters whose massive upper body is supported by two twigs instead of legs.

The side skirts made it look like daytona cars.

not a fan either. I like mods but not the widebody kits. I think they just look funny on Boxsters.

Dont like it here either. I have seen some wide body kits that look great. This is not one of them. What is the horsepower loss from the tiny intakes??

Right idea, wrong execution.
