PLUS they sell those sexy-as-hell wheels that were on the 2nd concept. The whole kit with wheels runs $3.5k~$4k depending on what options you choose. Really bums me out that I can't get a Toyobaru now.

Aero kit with wheels:

^ I wouldn't give it this "hellaflush" stance but I LIKE

So wait, a body kit that actually makes a car look better? Wow.

Nothing like spending $3.5-4k on a body kit for an "affordable" sports car.

There is a long list of stuff that this car needs before I would arrive at a body kit.

Besides, unless the kit is steel. I ain't interested in glued- on cheap fiberglass.

It's urethane. Standard stuff for a lip kit. Looks like a clean install, too.

I like that, which adds to the long list of reasons that I want an FRS/BRZ

Especially one that makes a relatively clean design look like a f&f stereotype. As NOHOME wrote, there is plenty that this car needs that has nothing to do with its body shape.

Ricing? The changes are subtle and it looks good IMO. Yeah it is pretty expensive though.

The video also mentions the inclusion a TRD suspension and/or shorter springs. If the price includes a full TRD kit, which would used to include springs/sway/shocks, it might not be such a bad deal.

Personally, I'd take just the rear spoiler and go without the other four body pieces.

I'd take the 5-piece (pretending I wouldn't end up with a front splitter and big rear wing at some point) and the non-staggered wheels, it's just too bad you have to choose between 18x8 or 19x8.5. 18x8.5s would give you all the width without the unnecessary loss of clearance and extra tire costs of 19s.

Suspension would be proper threaded coilovers with independent height adjustment of course.

Other than the subtle rear lip spoiler, your taking a fundementaly good looking car and fuglyfying it with that kit.

Step down a size of series, from 35-30 or whatever would be appropriate and the clearance isn't an issue.
