Thanks Amcluesent - I do like the look of their front splitter - appreciate the pic!

Not the canards... Rear of the side skirts. After the actual product, the HT autos kit doesn't have them like that

Agree with this - as you can see, the BRZ garnishes are a perfect colour match, and much more interesting.



And TRD wing/spoiler - also perfectly colour matched and flows with the contours of the body (if that is what you want)


Black GT86 modified with Cosworth exhaust, brakes, supercharger and map, Eibach Pro springs, OZ alloys, fast road geo, various cosmetics inc TRD spoiler and Valenti rear lights.

Issue with paint-matched BRZ items .. when there is no corresponding color for BRZ as for GT86. For example as if mine, H8R hot lava orange. Though similar issue with exterior bits from TRD, that IIRC were released prepainted in limited subset of colors, white/red/black, no?
I too like pre-restyle BRZ fender garnishes most. But seems that only custom painting, or going aftermarket for similar design ones, is an option.

Trd pre painted parts are only available in white red and black for the most part

Although there are different paint codes for white.

Perfect match and probably cheaper than getting them painted.

Obviously no use if your car is not one of the colours above
