Amazing how somebody took so many car modifications that can look good and managed to make them all look ugly.

Red, black, carbon fiber, white, gold, polished, Ach... Could it not decide on something and decided to be everything?

Does a tiny little 2 liter engine really even need that many huge exhaust tips? A BMW 320si race car puts out 275hp worth of exhaust through an exhaust about the size of one of those.

And I take back back I said about all the components being good looking by themselves, that rear lip spoiler thing is hideous. The shape of it is hideous, and the fact that it's unpainted carbon fiber on top of a white car is hideous. I wonder if it's held on with double sided tape?

H8 to H8 and not just for the sale of modding but it just doesn't add up, so many things going on at once... Feels spaceship like.

this one has a lot less going on and does not clash like the other one
but then again, a side profile might change that opinion

That looks much better. Personally I don't like the mexi-poke though.

The continuous curve on the rear add-on spoiler is soooooo much better than the flat topped one.

My neighbor was like "What? they did that back in the late eighties on volkswagens..."

I think it was one of those things that initially was inspired by race cars, then applied to street cars, and then totally exaggerated by clueless people to the point it makes no sense, kind of like carbon fiber as interior trim and paddle shifters on your automatic Lexus luxury car.

I don't think it'll ever die, but I do think there is a possibility people will get tired of it at some point.

LOL, why would you? That's like taking a sprinter and shooting them in the foot. So pointless.

That 5er picture looks like something you would see on ebay marketing cheap car parts. The E92 on the other hand looks clean (at least from that angle).
