Looks different, to say the least! Yea, the front bumper has too sharp edges which give it a boxy feel and little curviness would have been better. Yea definitely needs spacers bigger tires.

BBS's rework in PS is no doubt a better looker than the real one. No offence buddy!!

Front looks ok but not great or impressive. Really didnt like the rear. Tyre spacers might improve the look. IMO stock chevy looks better.

BBS's rework looks much better than the kit which you have.
But then to each his own.
If you are happy with it , nothing like it

Cheers
Enjoy!

OK all hail BBS...GO for the red one, there's no looking back!

The kit you have now looks too wanna be...The car needs some curves, it's not a box!

@BBS - Can you please show us something better in the rear? Something that might make it look much better...Sure it will help the OP

fio, the car looks ok. The wheel arches and the front dam is out of place...looks too bulky. Get the mags on with wide body tyres. Will complement the kit.

Well, i ve done some rework here.

Reduced bumper height(bulkiness), removed bumper side airdams, smoothed the bumper-wheel arch joining place, added diffuser with carbon fiber finish, added a lip spoiler and jdm style muffler and wheel spacers.

Sorry but not really to my liking. will go with badboy's image no.1, but overall even with that it looks too big. Sorry, but I'm just being truthful, no offence meant.

@BBCad : The rear bumper looks better, but still bulbous.

I've always loved the optra for its rear end looks, somehow the Magnum's squishy eyes doesn't do it for me. The mods are fine. Maybe you can change the eyes and give it a more meaner look?!?

i ve reduced the bulkiness of the rear bumper. but i feel it has to be proportionate with the overall bulkiness of the kit, else it may look like an upskirt.

I think this car has been done up by Udit, from Autozone Rajouri Garden. Car the owner of the car please confirm.

Infact the thread starter has just posted and forgot about it. Seriously even i did not like it. Its too bulky.

Whats with the Wide-Body thing nowadays???IMHO the stock magnum looks much much better than this,wish you have only upgraded to some Deep lip 17inch rims preferably lenso Samurai Series with some performance upgrades and rest left everything stock,seems monies gone wasted.
