Well, since everyone else is posting cars they think are cool, here's mine...coolest Supra I've ever seen. I think it's about $14,000 for all the body work, and if I remember right about another $32,000 in suspension and engine.

Spark it or Park it!
I don't like that at all. Reminds me of a Tiburon from the side, but not as nice looking.... The back looks like a mangled vette, and the front is downright hideous.
I didn't like it at first either. But honestly, if I were driving around and saw it, it would catch my eye. I didn't like this Skyline at first either, but it's grown on me somehow.
I think the word "tasteful" has been replaced by "outrageous" in too many designer's vocabulary these days... I don't really like any of those body kits but I'm a bit older (31) and prefer more subdued lines that hint at performance instead of screaming "look at me". But there are people who also find the Pontiac Aztec to be stylish, so whatever...
So, how many car lengths did you beat that Supra by, anyway?
2007 VW GTI 6 spd. No times yet
2000 Firehawk convertible 6spd- 12.52 @ 114.7 mph. 2.09 60'
Sold: 2004 Mini Cooper S. 14.95 @ 93.8 mph.
Sold: 2004 GTO 6 spd. 13.4 @ 104.5 mph
Sold: 2002 WRX 5spd. 13.39 @100.7 mph. 1.81 60'
Not a fan of either of those kits . Give me a stock exterior R34 or Supra sitting on a nice set of silver multi-piece 19s anyday .

2004 White Evolution VIII - Wingless and Altezzaless

It reminds me of a 300ZX. I'm not a big fan of bodykits either with certain exceptions.Originally posted by CustomS10

That Supra looks like a Celica. A little to overboard for me.
'02 White WRX Wagon
VF34, STi Pinks, Perrin IC Hoses, AP V2, Borla Catback, Perrin Up-pipe, Stromung Downpipe
those are both Veilside bodykits...Somehow, they are one of the more respected manufacturers of bodykits in Japan, and their stuff is really EXPENSIVE... Unfortunately, it has to be said that they are HIDEOUS also...
Check out their kit for the Integra (RSX).... Looks like a ricer's wet dream...
02 WRX WRBP sedan..
Did you see their Subaru kit? Now THAT is hideous! Or the MR2. These two are the only ones that have grown on me. Don't understand why, cause i'm normally a big propoenent for the understated look. Maybe cause these look more like whole different cars, than bodykit's tacked on. On the subject of Veilside themselves though, at least their kit's aren't rice. Every kit adds significant downforce to the vehicle, from my understanding. Most still are gaudy as can be, but at least they do what they're supposed to do. I guess I view them a little differently too, cause they've been doing this LONG before the term ricer existed, or before any fast and furious movie.

okay this is purely opinion, but that is the worst looking supra I have seen in recent memory. Expensive yes, ugly yes
karboy ss/bushings, blitz dtt, catless, prodrive axleback
yeah, that does not look good at all, way to over-done. look on cardomain and browse through about 2 pages and I garantee you will find at least 10 that look better than that.
supra is one of the tightest cars every built though.
One of the Premier Auto guys in Seattle just had that kit installed. I must be honest, I looks like a Integra on crack!. But, what ever rocks the driver's boat.
