What do you guys think about this ZL1 bodykit?

I don't know whether I like it or is it too much?? What do you guys think?

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=315964

I am not promoting this kit, nor am I promoting the vendor,nor am I affiliated with the vendor or product in any way. I simply wanted to share this look of the zl1 I found in the middle east section of the forums.

Thanks,

I think it looks awesome! I'm just not much of a show car guy. I like the subtle nuances of the ZL1.

I like it but I don't know how I feel about the front end. Yea me either.... I like subtle things that makes my car simple yet unique though..

Not liking the front end either. Honestly it looks like a stick on body kit. I like the rear valance the most.

I think it's fine if you're trying to do an extreme LT or SS makeover. For ZL1, it's a bit over-styled and too ricerific. Nothing about it says there is a ZL1 underneath.

Also, I believe there will be insufficient airflow through this front fascia to provide the designed engine and brake cooling effects of the OEM ZL1 fascia.

Agree totally on the front... I kind of like the back though and if there is actual wind testing this may be a better speed package?..

Another -1 on that front end. The side skirts are so-so, but as was said previously, it suffers from two things:

1) Overstyled. A lot.
2) The front of the car is purpose-designed. This feels akin to plugging up brake cooling ducts with 11tyK LED Fogzzz or some such nonsense.

Function >>>>>>>> Form

If they can prove it does a better job at the function than stock, that's different.

It's made for a SS and not a ZL1, you would loose all the areo on the front end along with all the cooling ducts.

I can't believe some of you guys called the ZL1 subtle. I generally think it is anything but.

As far as the kit goes, I personally don't want to mess with the aero GM has already provided me with.

First off I like bumblebeecamaros body kit. It is better than any car manufacturer has ever done --- In the world.

But getting back to cars. It's way over the top. Looks like a forced styling that just is too much. Way too much.

Most of the awesome cars on this forum, either ZL1's or SS's or V6's or 1LE's are subtle and are so nice it's hard to pick the best. This thing has none of that.

Sorry.

Jim

Would only make sense if the person driving it is dressed up as a Power Ranger. And even then only on Halloween.
