Default House of FRS/BRZ/GT86

I'm not sure if a thread like this has been started for the FRS, BRZ, or GT86 but if not, there is one now.

I'll start it off!

My favourite modded car for a while now. I completely 'get it'.

And of course Vic Morales BRZ on Meisters. I like the more practical FRS/BRZ/GT86 too

Neither those wheels nor exhaust tips make "sense" on the styling of the FRS IMO

Pic break?

There's enough nonsense here for it to make complete sense to me. It's an obnoxious bunch of arse and I love the way it looks. Technically he only did it with tailpipes, coilovers and a set of wheels. It's great

I guess the "obnoxious for the sake of attention" thing just does nothing for me. Anyone can build an obnoxious ugly car on purpose by going over the top....leaves me apathetic though.

Partially I agree with you Rally, but at the same time, I feel like stuff like that is a classic Japanese trend and sometimes (if executed correctly) I like the crazy, obnoxious styling of some peoples japanese cars. But that being said, the best execution of a vehicle, in my opinion, the more simple, the better.

Here's a pretty sweet one!

I'm not sure you could call bozo/VIP classic. It's a more contemporary style and it looks great on certain body styles....I just don't think a small two-door sports car is the right chassis for big flat lip chrome wheels and excessive exhaust tips.

I love some of the japanese obnoxious styling when done well, but the execution and the chassis are all wrong on this one.

Yeah I would have to agree on that one. If it were a big body sedan, it would be much better.

See where you're coming from but that car tickles a funny bone of mine. So does this. Couldn't see myself driving one on the street though.

^^^^ That is unbelievable. I absolutely love the Rocket Bunny kit. Over used, but there's a reason why it's over used.
