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'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.

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

Also, our parts are all made with excellent fitment with no modifications or alterations needed for the parts, which minimizes installation costs.
