Genesis Coupe "Aston Martin" Kit

Any thoughts on the: FNB VEGA Conversion Kit? Pricey as hell though.

Are those pre-production versions? It's different than here Korean Auto Imports which resembles more with One77

For an aggressive kit, its not bad.

I hope you mean the one Danger posted, because it does look good IMO, but the one from KAI has too much venting going on around the wheels & looks out of place.

^ that pic is the actual product. i think it looks too much like the aston-marton one-77, to the point where it's not "inspired by" but straight-up "wannabe". that said, though, this is currently sitting at the top spot for my choice in front bumpers. =P

personally, i find the whole package is too much. rear bumper is way too busy. fenders are too aggressive for me. side skirts... might be ok. i do like the front bumper, but i would fill in the lower half of the side vents with bondo (the reverse of what was done in Danger's pics). i like how the upper part of the vent incorporates the headlight's curve, so i want to keep that. if they are real vents, then having fresh air blow in from beneath the headlight might actually benefit most aftermarket intakes.

Hmmm funny cuz when i was looking at the different sites I overlooked that difference. The one I posted was the only one I could find with no logos or direct links to other sites. Reposted 2 sets, the black one from SEMA and what looks like the original pix from a car dealer (?) in korea. (I understand if the shots need to be taken out).







All that venting is my prob with the design, aside from the fender. The GC has a nice streamlined and smooth contour, this tends to work against it. There are aspects I ike though. Step up from the tomato conversion though.

VEGA has too much venting like TUFAST said. I have always said this car is the poor mans ASTON, so overall I really like the look.

Is the first picture a photoshop (missing grill right under headlamps)? if it is it's a good job...

I like the original picture better. Like Tufast said, GC has contours, and the KAI kit is too angular. even the fender kit looks contrived, because the door's smooth contours clash too much with the fender.

I understand that the One-77 has the same grills underneath headlamps and the fender has the angular cuts, but then on the aston, the fender lines continue onto the doors. If the kit from KAI had replacement doors, it would be little better.

As for the back bumper, I am not crazy with the same grill under the tailights. Any further then one wouldn't be able to tell which end is the front or the rear...

If the first one is available as front bumper only, I'd actually start saving up...

Yeah to solicit actually possibility of me buying it there are a few things that woud need to change. I can't substantiate the cost, I already am gonna have to charge a few things when I get the car. I do also favor the single vent rendition. But for the cst of this whole kit I can buy another and have the required parts painted.
