Nice work. the front air dam is too big and oversized. The black color hides the contours.

Good Bits:
Side skirts are nicely done.
Front mesh grille is good.

Overall very nicely done, considering its your first effort. There's not much one can do to improve the looks of the current elantra.
Well one bit that i forgot to tell you that one of my companies does some fiberglass work , so while the designing and fitment was done by me, the actual product came from my engineers. So its not an easy diy that i can put here. Plus there was a lot of trial and error!

Regarding the car yes i opted for 15" because i live on the outskirts and the roads aren't too good i didn't want to end up with a busted suspension. in 16" its hard to find good alloys for the elantra(at least 2 years ago it was!!!)

The front chin was a bone of contention even when it was under-development but it was something i wanted and if you see the car actually it does not stick out that much........heck why iam i even saying that...............i love it that way dude...

wow!! someone just told me on an american forum the other day that it was too small.......... ...........yes black does have the tendency to do that so thats why certain design aspects were made larger otherwise it made the car design too subtle........

And lastly aptly put Mpower i did have some hands chopped off and only god knows what i spent?!!

ps. Thanks all of you for your appreciation. Makes the effort worth it..

Just my opinion... also since the surface of the chin spoiler is reflecting and mirrored, therefore it might be giving an illusion of being sticking out too much.

Kit looks nice, pretty good for first timer,
The rear bumper looks a little bigger and lower than it sould have been, but that again is a personal preference,
I would suggest a small rubber fin spoiler at the back, will look really neat with the color of your car.
Cheers

Well you are right there extreme_torque..........it does make it seem like it juts out in certain lights. It does come out as well, not that it is flush with the top half of the bumper. So you are not totally wrong......your point is valid

I know the tints would look great........just a tad bit unsure............

Could not manage to get a pic pf the spoiler but it is based on the same theme of spoiler below, about 1/2 the size and is made of rubber, like a small fin along the edge of the boot.

Dude i made these skirts and whole kit my self. I have the dies for them so i can change the skirt whenever i want to. This was my 3rd design......before i finally decided what i wanted...

Ok 2 quick pictures with the spoiler...........wanted something that was plain and merged with the back rather than stuck out on an already exagarated boot treatment...

beeman-great job on your 1st attempt,but like some said,the rear bumper is too low slung and the skirt in the front jutting out too much[like dart vader helmet].your spoiler looks neat and simple,the mesh jobs neat too,paint jobs excellent,add a muffler tip, its got a big gap there.
