Auto Craft New Body Kit

Not sure about the rear but I like the front. Also interesting risers for the OE spoiler.

Here is a better picture of the hood. Looks like they converted a S1 to S2 for the TAS 2012.

Better add in subjective opinion and different car culture as well because it would be ignorant not to.

Just my $.02 on the subject

I'll start out by saying I dig this kit, but think it could be pulled off better than their sample car. Matte black mesh with maybe not black wheels would make a world of a change in my eyes.

Different car subcultures is the best way to put it, I think. One doesn't have to like everything they see but at least respect different tastes. To me, a true care enthusiast will enjoy and respect all quality aspects of the automotive world. Race cars, vintage euro cruisers, rat rods, VIP cars, etc., alike, all get my personal love and respect when executed properly. Some may disagree with this sentiment, though, and believe there is strictly one way of doing things and anyone who strays from this way is automatically wrong...

Wasn't petit designing an exhaust kit similar to that for the s2? Not necessarily that aggresive of an angle on the tip alignment, but something that almost molded to the shroud?

I'm usually not a hater, but this is pretty bad.

I like the risers, though.

Yeah, now I have a reason to get an S2. Different hood, better fitment, a proper paint job, and I would rock that in a heartbeat. That's just me though. I like just about anything that looks like a spaceship.

The hood is the same for S1 and S2...

For me the kit is too over the top. But I like that vendors are still developing aftermarket parts for the RX8.

I hate the rear bumper but that can be changed. I'd round off the the corners of the lower front lip to remove the hard/square edges. Modify the lower rear flares to blend in with another bumper and close the vent like 9k's chop. The overall look and feel of the kit would come down several notches and not be so over the top.

Here is the kit in pieces

Yeah I would smooth out the front. The back reminds me of the WALD kit for the Lexus ISF. At least it's not as over-the-top as this.
