Not three bad.

I'd like to see one in the flesh to see if it has the same presence and angles as a real one ie is it really low and wide enough to be convincing

If you tot up the parts, plus professional fitting to a good standard that will last, plus paint, plus the base car, you are heading towards 20k.

If it isnt convincing it isnt worth it in my opinion, so a good fitting job will be paramount, so it must be a good quality kit.

Thats actually quite a good replica look-alike! I wonder how well the fibreglass stands up to everyday abuse though!
pretty sure its not fiberglass..... the bodykit is made from something called GRP

Its so true though! Most women dont have a clue! I used to have a pretty heftily modified polo... my mate had the exacty same model, but a basic 1.0 litre standard... could any of the girls tell the difference?! No!!!! Lol [:)] Most girls look at the badge, and thats it!

The Toyota badge on the steering wheel of Wannabe J Trousersnakes 'Ferrari' might confuse the blondies tho [:p]

That does look like a very good kit. Wouldn't have the Fezza badges on it though because it isn't one. But still a good peice of kit.

Posted this about a year ago, the finish is extremely good. Highly convincing until you see the interior, shame is FWD!
