I've never come across that one before...it's not that bad.

That actually might look kinda cool, de-chromed. It would be cool if their pictures had it on an actual car...

The rear basically looks like the garbino rear, but with a chrome strip attached.

The front is obviously R56 JCW influenced.

Sides are cool.

I don't like the chrome bits, but as a whole, it could be a cool looking kit. I wish I could rind one installed.

I'm not saying its overpriced, but the factory Aero kit is the same money, so it lacks value to me.

I always find it odd when places don't show that, I am also curious.

it has a giant Honda emblem in the grille :P

I'm I ferreted in seeing it actually installed. Replace the chrome/plastic grills with color matched bits and metal mesh grills and it may be doable.. I have a feeling fitment must be an issue and what has kept us from seeing it actually installed.

Also, relocating the fogs to fit the holes may be a challenge and the side skirts do look rather awkward.

Rustyeuro 02-01-2013 04:29 AM

the foglight holes look almost like they weren't designed for the extended bumper reinforcement added to the american version of the R53/52/50

well it's gotta fit right, I mean read the ad.........

$650 to ship to SoCal is to much for me
