ground effects are not ricing... plenty of ground effects exist for BMW and Merc cars... its making the vehicle look different then the rest of them... and if you lived in michigan ... you'd understand that the Xfire is common... its lost all appeal as a "rare" car....

The only "rare" car in SE MI is a 1974 Pinto or Maverick. These are considered rare cars in Beverly Hills too.. :lol: :lol:

Default Not for me!

Thanks to a ground effects package I own a Crossfire! I owned a 2002 PT Cruiser and installed a Xenon Bruiser groud effects package on it. From that point on my driving experience on the PT was a nightmare. I was constantly aware of the fact if I was not carefull the gound effects would bottom, resulting in my repainting the front end of the kit. After a half dozen repaint jobs (I got good at it.) and a test drive of the Crossfire, it was goodby PT --- Hello Xfire.

So, for me at least, my Crossfire turns enough heads without adding a potential headache. I learned my lesson on the PT.

I agree as well. I had a Honda S2000 raodster and put the ground effects on it. After knocking the front spoiler off it TWICE due to running it up over a low curb while parking, I got tired of replacing it and simply removed ( a $400 piece of plastic that I had bought TWICE).

No ground effects for me. I agree, the Crossfire Roadster is a gorgeous car without any extra plastic.

Doc, sorry to be a pain and I know you are new to the forums, but please can you make your pic smaller in your signature? About 25% of its current size should be ok. Thanks.

Doc,

Tidy your garage.

Like your Roadster. It is beginning to appeal to me.... now if only I can persuade the missus that we can have a 4 seater XF if we both have one...

noticed your signature. Part of that movie was filmed right here in the Tampa Bay area. In fact I took the picture, in my Avatar, about 1/4 mile from one of the filming sites on the beach.
As far as ground effects, I like them, however I believe I am tapped out as far as more money into this car. I'll be interested in a couple of years when the design starts to fade with me and I want to respark the styling. Don't give up on your ideas!!!! Having said this, I would still love to see your ideas.

Having been involved in the design/production of a ground effect kit before, you will have a very tough time "profitting" from a body kit unless you have the means to produce it yourself. If you are lucky you might find a company that will build the kit for you, but don't expect them to pay you for the rights. Infact, expect to have to pay them and lend your car to them for fitment.

For a car as rare as the crossfire, there just isn't a big market for kits for these kind of cars.

With the right design, a body kit can help enhance the appearance of any car.
