It looks... too plain, too straight IMHO. The rear bumper spoiled it for me. And it needs new rims.

Other than the back everything looks good. The embosed number (Ind) plate will look better.

I have always liked RIO's work.
This one is a nice and simple looking kit.

I am reposing the pics as they were in a pdf format when posted by hitinv. Also, buddy, where are these pictures taken? As this building looks VERY VERY familiar to me!!

BTW, i love that back bumper!! Looks Super Cool. Also, the car looks very clean and "corporatie" indeed!!

If this car has to go sport, that damn Chrome needs to go!

Red face

the rear could have been better. Think if it were to be inline with the tail lights rather than protruding would do the trick in my opinion.

Neat job – not overdone and just right for the Altis.
Not many will mod the Altis and many won’t expect it to be modded at all. So no wonder in the mixed reactions here.

The front looks good really. It is a Japanese Samurai - not an American Rodeo hero. It needs to look sharp, racy and ready to rip your face off if you get too close. Not all chunky, blocky and daunting. The front looks right, but the rear with the plain lower half and the faux diffuser with the boxy side mesh really spoil the lines created by the front and side skirts.

Also, it appears the side and front pieces are not pf the same kit - the ridges don't line up well.

It is a good A for effort, but can be better

Pretty decent job but definitely need better rims. But the Corolla has got a rather uninspiring look. I am not saying it looks bad but certainly doesn't look like a car to be modded up. Its too subtle for my taste, probably cos Toyota has rarely come out with an equivalent of the Lancer EVO or Subaru Impreza WRC edition for Corolla.

Very impressive back end, however the front and side skirt,are ok types. The job is very neatly executed as the lines match perfectly. As everybody has said, please change your stock alloys.

Front and the sides look great. The rear is not to my liking. Still a very decent effort

I would give it a 5/10 rating. The Altis, unlike the Corolla, does not have that street racer kind of looks. I think the Altis is more of a chauffer driven sedan good to go to formal events.
The Corolla however could do both, in stock form it looked good as a formal car and modded ones like our member on the forum Karan, whose Corolla looks ubercool with angel eyes, TRD grill and rims.
