    Yuk. The side panel thingy looks like Ford and the double fogs really suck.

    Never been a fan of body kits, but I have to say, that's one of the better looking ones I've seen.

    Same here. I am not a fan of things that make your car look fast - like what many teenagers are doing these days. It's like those tail pipe covers that make your tiny tail pipe look like it is thicker. :D If one wants a high performance machine, save money and buy a high performance machine.

    I would be more impressed with things that actually make your car work better - like a plug in conversion etc.

    I have to wonder: is it a kit or merely a concept? In either case it looks ridiculous, and if a kit, who would buy it? Not me, for sure.

    Wald kits have always been strange/funky/over the top types. I never really liked them. Maybe I'm too old. :)

    Yikes! It looks similar to the over the top IS F kit they've developed.

    Looks like their style. Same with the is f kit. I don't see to many prius drivers getting these kits but if someone wanted to have a one of kind show car, that kit would be the one to go with...

    I don't think it's that bad. Not for me though. The double fog lights do look weird. And I don't like the black hood.

    So you have to take off your original panels and put those on? Or is it something that goes over them?

    I like that it is over the top.
    These guys are individuals and showing it.
    Maybe a little too ricey, but I still think if you want an over the top kit to make your Prius stand out from the crowd, this is the kit you want.

    Wow, their stuff is so aggressive. If my car looked like that, I'd expect it to be putting out at least 500HP.

    I wonder how much this increases the drag coefficient. Toyota worked very hard to get low Cd, only to be bypassed by such mods...

    I do like the looks of it, but I would never get it. I can not see paying money to reduce the efficiency of my car!
