    I'm surprised considering how bad the handbrakes on 308s are!!! LOL

    It looks a lot like it but there are differences too. It seems to me someone may have taken a Koenig kit as a base and went from there.

    I probably wouldn't buy it, but I have to admit, I don't hate it.

    Thats what I thought, but Zender also did one similar.

    Personally I like that 80's flared look especially if its a turbo conversion:)

    I wouldn't buy it, but I think its kinda cool. Only problem is that it would be very difficult to walk the walk in a car like this, because you could never get it fast enough to play in the game with today's cars that have similar bodywork.

    That said, I still think it looks pretty cool.

    Any idea what they are asking for it? No, I don't want it. Just curious though...
    Seems like someone put a lot of bux into the conversion - I'm sure if it's cheap
    enough some drifter guy will buy it. But I'd really wonder about the service
    history....

    They are asking 33k for it, but I sure they would take less. Mileage is about 33 as I well if I remember correctly.

    I have the Koenig front spioler and that does not look like a koenig front spoiler.

    But I think the rest of the body panel might be Koenig. Very expensive.

    POS. Do it to a Nissan Skyline. This is classic car territory with exotic roots. The craftsmen that built these automobiles would love that biach with all the extra weight glommed onto it. Hope they used silicone so it can be cut off with an exacto blade.

    Waste of plastic. Save the cars!

    I'm not sure I'd want to drift a 308. While the rear weight bias would give a great initial tail-out drift, the pendulum effect would get you at some point. Most good drifters don't use the handbrake much, rather just popping the clutch. Given that the Ferrari's clutch wasn't designed for this type of abuse, I'd guess you wouldn't last more than a few laps before burning it up.

    Then there's the whole oil slosh issue, but that's an easy one to cure with a baffle.

    This all being said -- I love the factory lines, so the add-ons look gaudy to my eyes. Of course, to each his own, and there's nothing wrong with it.

    EXCELLENT Domonick! Did you have problems fitting yours? Mine was about 1" too narrow at the grill "U" opening sides. I had to spread it under pressure to get the front black stripe "slot" to line up with the upper body.

    Should we do an intervention on Mike to get his done?!
