Too Busy

Too Busy...

Too many side lines ... I would get rid of the air intake which faces forward in from of the rear wheel arch. But I will say that the rear does change the rear shape to make the car look something other than a 300zx. I could see the car in a metallic orange or a deep candy-apple-red.


The front nose looks too big ... it needs to be broken up with a pair of standard indicator lights and square driving lights.


Ummm, how do I unlock the boot?
I would scope the outer ends of the rear diffuser to match up with the inner edge of the side taillights.


Front bar, side panel, and centre panel as one piece is STUPID from a logistical point of maintenance and repair. "oh, wait I have to remove the whole front end to clean the air-intake pod-filter, and god I hate driving in autumn the leaves get stuck in the nose". ... should be three distinctive pieces.

I like it better than the Strosek kit. It's not too bad I reckon. Really digging the back.

Can't take any styling advice from you Steven, you have Ferrari lights

Arse end looks like a modern interpretation of the Porsche 928. I think it could look pretty tough... but definitely no point calling it a Z.

I don't mind the rear bar section, rest is ok. Not worth the drama to fit tho...

I think the front looks agreeable and the rear as well. However the side is too angular. It looks too square/boxy. However as some as said, it looks like a entirely different car, not the 300zx. Maybe the future of the 300zx now renamed 300z (as opposed to the 350z and 370z) in an alternate universe........ :P

I actually think I like it! I'd have to see it sprayed with the indicators in though.
I'm imagining it in bayside blue...

I actually like it! putting aside the fact that it completely changes the shape of a stock Zed, it still looks like a very agressive body kit! i'd have one!

i like it too, would be interesting to see what happens with the rear lights but i think the zx rear is beginning to look dated.. would look great with a diffuser of some sort, and maybe a bigger opening on the front bar

The indicator slots at the back look kinda similar to a 350Z.
