gone case,

The pic below shows the strut brace in blue. It's nothing but a brace betweent the front suspension struts.

This improves handling as its rigid and doesnt allow flex between the left and the right.
The down side is any shock to one side of the suspension will be transferred to the other.
If you search the forum you will find more info on this.

I agree that most spoilers are only cosmetic, but this one is actually anti-aerodynamic.

Oh come on Manveet, in a car like the OHC some finishing defects on the spoiler are not going to have ANY effects on the aerodynamics. If you tell me that the finishing defects on the spoiler of a Koenigsegg/Zonda/Enzo is going to have an effect I could understand but an OHC???

And anyways from the picture it's not clear, the so-called defect could also be the light playing on the spoiler for all you know. It looks to me as if the light condition is giving the spoiler a distorted look.

You misunderstand Ishan. I am not talking about any finishing defect.

If you look at the spoiler carefully, you will see that the top surface turns upwards at an angle of 90 degrees. I have NEVER seen a spoiler like this one - all said and done even cosmetic one's have atleast the basics right.




IMHO, giving the modder benefit of doubt - i believe that in his quest to differentiate, he has fixed the spoiler upside down.

Thumbs up

Nice body kit, well finished, Enuff on the stickers, don't wanna comment
2 eyesores,

The right side hole on the rear bumper has nothing coming out of it, well if there is actually nothing then why a hole ? well to match on the right side, then fit a dummy muffler there just to suit the looks if it is only for that.

The rims look too bling and the design is not sporty at all, does not suit the car in my opinion, something like this wud look really neat on this car

Hey dude Thanks for the Mags pics.. they look quiet impressive !! I was considering to change the mags... but it looks much better in real than in the pics...
and hey i did mention in my first post of this thread that some minor work is still pending on the car... which includes a dummy mufler tip on the left..

Hey Manveet, thanks for working on my spoiler, i never concentrated on that so much..

Guys please keep the comments coming...

Cheers.. !!

But I somehow dont like your car..or atleast from these pics..

You really need to take those wide body stickers out..
Also I think you have gone for that Bmw's look in nfs most wanted..Nice idea..look great.

It looks good but I think the design could have been better.I really loved your 1st car..the one with black hood.
Hey dude.. not angry at all..
I guess the car looks better personally, n i was kinda tired of old compact look, i wanted something that would make the car look a little bulky !!

I've seen the car personally and it does look good and wide. The widebody stickers do look out of the place though. Just remove them dude.
