    yuck :eek:
    especially the rear with those awful fake dual exhausts and all those extra superfluous air scoops to feed the none existent engine.

    Really ugly. When I asked them if it affected range/aero at TMC Connect they looked at me like a space alien. Could have just been a terrible booth person, but at least the other body kit company at TMC Connect said they designed and tested their kit to not degrade aero/range.

    I like tires a lot. Everything else is not better than original.
    How about custom LED headlight? I bet those will sell like hotcakes and will make Model S more up to date.

    What other body kits if any are people liking? I liked the unplugged kit, especially the complete front fascia. Oinions on that or any other?

    Not my cup of tea. Wouldn't mind that aggressive look on the X though

    It looks like a design objective was to kill aerodynamics as much as possible.

    If you're looking for minimum range, and arbitrary bling is your thing, then go for it.

    Looks weird. I think that wider cars like a Lambo only look good with all that kit stuff on the front and back.

    Why do people continue to try and make this car ugly?

    Terrible. The back end is by far the worst element of the design. Also, nothing is more played out than the vents on the fenders behind the front wheels. The wheels are non-offensive though.
