That's truly awful "workmanship", but it couldn't of happened to an uglier vehicle. My gawd, those things make my skin crawl. The G35 is so so much easier on the eyes

Its no matter what make or model, would you accept that standard of work on you Benz? I could not accept this standard on a pick up truck

Shit the 17 year old kid down the street did a way better job on his honda in his parents driveway and used spray can paint when he installed front air dam, side effects and rear cover...

I know this because he borrowed some tools from me to do it and wanted me to see his finished results.

The only negetive thought I had (kept it to myself) was why? why spend so much money on a car that will never be worth more than 3k?

The add ons cost him $2500 and the car cost him $3400 and now he wants a wing for the back....... and plans to do the engine add ons........
