Have to agree with those above...ditch the fogs, otherwise very nice.

Looking evil, I like.

That scoop does look a tad awkward, but hey, it's functional.

I like the steering wheel. Who makes it?

Sweet car, I love that front lip. Does that engine damper actually do anything? I've always thought they were cool, but question their functionality.

I'm more of a stealth/ sleeper guy (of course I'm old too) but what you've done looks good! Stickers, too many gauges, all are against my grain but with the quality of your work it all comes together really well except...

I agree with the mob that the fog's don't work with what you have. Stand out too much. Everything is red and black or tinted - then you have the round fogs jumping out.

Interior is very sharp!!! Nicely done. With how purposeful the car looks you could use some meatier wheels and tires. 15x8's with 225's. Wish mine looked that clean and mean though.

No one talked about the clean engine bay?

The pass side is empty of all the usual garbage! WOW!

Did you ditched the coolant overflow tank? Where did you hide all the wires and the power converter thing?

I hope to make my engine as clean as your!

Dark,

No comments because we're all jealous of it. If we can't tear it apart what's the point!

In France they are Pommes Frites. Like many things french, they suck!
