    I personally think that plastic inlet makes the front end look even worse. I know it's functional but it's too bold and not flush with the lines.

    I have to say, I actually like this from the front.

    However the side is just awkward looking.

    The rear diffuser is a bit ricey for my taste too.

    This is a tremendous step back from the original front bumper on the 15-17's... wow I wouldn't touch that with a 2382937238 foot pole

    See my previous post. I do however dig the new upper grille, which is a huge step forward from the gloss black OEM grille with the crooked fangs.

    Can't tell if I am a fan of those heat extractors in the hood or not. When available, I may buy a set and see how they look on my car (can always sell them to someone else if I don't like them).

    That rear diffuser is just terrible. The whole car is just too busy for my taste, and I've always hated the fake scoops in front of the rear wheels.

    What's up with the tach on the silver car? Does it have a moving red line as the car warms up? The tach looks like redline is 6500 RPM.

    What are those heat extractors on the hood made of? The pictures make it hard to tell if they're plastic or carbon fiber... If they're the latter then I'll gladly buy them for my 2018/2019.

    Yeah... What the heck is up with that rear diffuser? It looks horrible. Why does the center of it hang so much lower than the sides? It just makes it look incomplete or like there's pieces missing...

    Bingo.
    You said it Rich. The side profile of the front end is U_G_L_Y. :tsk:

    That’s oddly sexual.

    Looks like it's designed to provide down force at speed.

    Roush needs to update there wheels. I wouldn't pay .01 for those they look dated and don't fit the car at all. :barf:

    I'm not doubting that it serves a purpose. But still doesn't change the fact it looks tacky and weird (imo). Maybe the angle of the photo makes it look worse then it really is.
