Saw the video, I have one thing to say to you....pull up your pants! lol. But the exhaust note really wasn't that bad at all. Now as for the fit and finish, it could use a bit more work. But as others have mentioned, you are going to have a little bit of trouble if you lower the car and try to go over speed bumps.

agreed, my car sits low and I only upgraded by .5" and it does scrape on speed bumps.. but not too bad.

you could be like me and lower your car, then bottom out on your catalytic converter and destroy rendering it undrive-able. Ooops!

Westminster, MD; reporting. They're handing those repair order tickets a lot more frequently everywhere now!

Then don't add a bodykit, it will get ripped off very soon after you start doing rallycross events.

I like the side-exit, just needs to be finished, as somebody else mentioned, a rectangle tip will finish the look. another FF member, Sonic_hedgehog has a side exit with a rectangle tip and it looks awesome.

It is a polyurethane kit. You better do your research a bit better before you go and waste money on that kit. It is not an RS replica kit, it's the WRC body kit that you are thinking of. It is only a fraction wider than stock and the front bumper does hang 1/2" lower than the stock front bumper. I have seen it installed on a couple of cars and it won't make any difference in Rallycross. You would be much better off just leaving the exterior stock and changing up the suspension, wheels and motor.
