Yikes, that thing is truly an abomination! A great contender for the "Worst 9-2X" thread

Ouch...  That poor car needs someone to rescue it.

Lose the yellow headlight film, lose the tow hook, make the hood scoop insert and rear wing match the car, lose that yellow vinyl windshield strip, paint the wheels a normal color and you have a relatively decent Aero.

I don't understand why anyone would look at a regular Aero and think that adding those "mods" would somehow make the car look better...

Yea, they come in all sorts of colors. Orange on silver, not so much a good look. I quite like them as well, they just suck to keep clean. ha

They do have the bright green and blue too!  Sometimes I mess around with TireRack's wheel configuration tool

I didn't look too closely at the photos at first, but are those Sparco Assetto Garas? I also have them tongue

Gold on my silver Aero looks okay but definitely not as good as when I had my blue Aero:

lol nice! What color are you considering for the wheels? Those yellow accents ... just terrible! Was that just plastidip over faded clear coat?

Re: FS (not mine): 2005 9-2x Aero

I'm thinking somewhere along the lines of a Dark Purple Metallic. Sad part was the paint is fine under it all, just horrible choices on the owners side. Orange wheels didn't look too bad once the yellow was gone, but not enough to keep em that way
