    Well not the whole kit, just one part of it.

    I just want the tail peice that goes above and around the rear bumper. the part that is circled in green.

    Why you ask? It is 6 in the morning and I have been awake for awhile...and getting curious...

    In fact for sh!ts and giggles, can someone do a photoshop of my profile pic so that I have the circledpart as part of my car, but retainind the 328 rear bumper?:)

    Actually that was a bit of a hack. If you add that part to your car, you also move your license plate way down and you would have different 'insignia' unless you put the originals back on. GTOs have a black horse and the word 'GTO', so to make it look neater in your case I would use a black horse and just '328'.

    To get a more proper look you should go with the black rubber rear bumper.

    I'm not trying to beat up on Korr, but what I'm trying to say is, that the changes would be more than what is shown on the picture. The whole lower part of the bumper and muffler would change as well.

    If you could read, you would have noted that he didn't want all that done.

    I will, however, keep everything you said in mind for when I mod images for fake Ferrari ebay sales.

    Or not.

    Welcome to the board btw, we like people with a friendly attitude.

    What Auroraptor wants doesn't really exist. That rear part is one unit so you can't just have the part above the bumper. You would have to cut the C form apart, not easy and even more difficult to install. If you want to go with that rear part, then the fenders have to come off as well, which will widen the wheelbase by 4 inches. Regardless the license plate goes down below.

    If this is just about the rear wing lip, that one can actually be purchased as one stand alone piece from the shop in Long Island (if interested I can dig up their website).

    But there is no kit or part that would do what is on the photo. Not with those three cooling ducts and no fender widening (unless you cut them yourself into the existing fenders).

    I had once a similar idea for my 308, but if I would change it, I would do the whole C frame modification. Just cutting gills into non widened fenders looks weird and is a hassle from a rust etc perspective.

    But hey, all is possible: I once saw a 328 with a 288 Evoluzione rear and a Koenig wing on top (instead of the Evo wing). I liked it, purists probably puked. It was actually at Cavallino, but they didn't let the car participate, it just sat in the parking lot.
