Beautiful cars, but can't get past the rear looking like a dually truck...

I recognize and respect all the engineering, countless design hours and monetary investments that go in to the production of aero, but these photos beg the question:

Why make a factory wide-bodied car wider?

Because racecar, because stance, because you can, because-because, none of those conceivable reasons make any remote sense or exude any real sense of class or purpose and I was being exceedingly generous with my reasoning.

I'm cognizant of these being other people's cars, that taste is entirely subjective and that some people like to be as ostentatious as possible; however I can't help feeling like a factory M4 is infinitely more appealing.

Great effort though, as this is truly a massive undertaking even if it's not visually appealing to me (personally).

Personally, I am usually not a fan of Vorsteiner kits but this looks awesome!

I like it, but I also like big butts! This is not a US only car - it would work here in Europe too. I would want one and never sell it.

all in all it looks great, if only the rear widening was a bit less wide, it would be tasteful. OVERKILL in the back.

The Paint matches flawless in person, it might be due to the lighting and editing on the photo.

front is great, rear view not bad but rear fenders are pretty bad. way too big for my taste.

maybe if there was some inlet or something (brake cooling?) to break the visual size of that bulge.

The blue car is fitting for Superman's alter ego---if Clark Kent went on some bender...announcing to the world that he is really Superman, and loves BMWs and the colors blue and red.

If you guys could fix the rear quarter to flow better then it would be nice. But that price tag of 25k... Ridiculous.. Too bad you guys can't take criticism on Instagram and just block people

I prefer factory lines instead of this, the rear looks terrible. I would actually like this front with the rocket bunny rear (and I hate that kit too).

Out of control! I love the styling - better than previous Vorsteiner wide body kits.

This is what WIDE BODY is all about. Make it wide or don't even bother.

345 out back. DAMN.

All these arguments and opinions around "performance vs. aesthetics" on this kit are kind of...well pointless.

Ask yourself truthfully what percentage of M4 owners are going to extract the full performance of this vehicle? 10%? 5%? The M4 is already more than most of its owners can handle. This kit just provides the visual reminder to the rest of the world - look the fuck out - sahkir orange coming through....oh different topic.

To each their own.

Me likey mucho Mikey!
