Thoughts?

What I wanna know is how they are attached to the car. Do you need to cut a hole to fit it in place, or is it just some 'sticker' job.

This mod (if we could get hold of better pics), can either look really nice (if the side fins have a real grill and need to be fitted to a 'cut-out'), or it can look really cheap if it's just a sticker thing, and the grill doesn't have real holes on it...

Appearance is a matter of personal taste. To me, adding phoney plastic vents to the side of a car is tacky. Just my personal opinion.

They also have the look of obviously being stuck on top of the sheet metal. Vents should be under the seam of the metal not on top of it.

I know what you are saying but they look ok. I stuck them fairly low down on the car which i think is better

Agreed, there's a kit car forum for that type of stuff. No offense.

Well, Huu. Now I know why I get so excited when I drive my SLK350. I thought it was just some vibration. I won't get it fixed, now that I know what it is.[:p][:0][;)]
