How do you guys feel about a hood scoop/ racing stripe combo on a s60 r, Ive never seen one before so I took it upon my self to create the first.

Why did you buy such a nice vehicle if you were just going to throw vinyl on it and fake hood scoops? If the scoop works, that's a different story.

dougy's actually looks badass though. Any testing as to it's effectiveness yet?

Racing stripes are the backwards hats of cars.

Did you cut a hole in your hood? Or is it just for looks?

Well, it's your car and you can do what you want with it. But I don't like it. It looks like you spend exactly $18.99 at AutoZone. I'm also annoyed that your sport kit is missing the front winglets, one headlight wiper is askew and the poorly done matte stripe doesn't travel the length of the car, only the hood. It's not like Dougy spent nine hundred dollars on his scoop either.

At least it'll be easy to remove.

Exactly this. The racing stripe isn't centered either. It's not centered between the washer sprayers, and certainly not centered on the grille, and worst when you look how it's aligned to the lower intercooler opening. Funny talk about symmetry (elevate grilles, you can get for both sides) .

Anyway, i'll keep quiet now. I must stay un-biased! ;)


BTW, Jake, your caR is Magic Blue, not Pearlescent Purple as you wrote in your sig.

The best body mods on any car look like they are part of the car and add to the cars looks and flow with the lines etc. As mentioned by others it is your car and you can do anything you want with it but that scoop looks like it was slapped on and I wouldn't be surprised if it flew off at speed at some point lol.
