The carbon strip makes the badge look out of place.. The wing looks awful sorry! Does it actually do anything?

I'd say yes for the bonnet (debadged) and NO for the wing. Looks like useless added weight to me...

How does the airbrake work with that stuck to it ??.I had the misfortune to have a failure of the air-brake not deploying once,when your used to the stopping power it can be quite scary!

The airbrake should function as normal, but with some extra help from the wing. The drawback would be the additional drag caused by the wing.

Don't do it. You've chosen the best colour, it really doesn't need add ons.

However, if you really feel then need try some of these.

I reckon they'd go really well with Azure Blue.

This just goes to show two things money can't buy taste, the others on hear may be being polite but that looks shite, also if you are really considering that then the second thing that comes to mind is fools are easily parted with money. Please dont take offense but it really is crap if you want to Max Power a car buy a Lambo or Hot Hatch

It will immediately identify you to the cognoscenti as a Poser. Especially the Roger Racer Wing.

If you do it, my advice would be to also hang some large fuzzy dice from the rear view mirror and get a couple of decals that fill the side quarter windows and say in script, "Duke of Earl."

Then the package will be complete. :eek:

Forgive me for the tough love, but you have the best super car package on the planet from absolutely the greatest company. (You also chose the best color IMHO). We here in the cult have an obligation to tell you things your friends can't and won't.

Ditto........wasn't a fan at first but as time has gone on, as others have stated TIMELESS DESIGN:D.......leave it as is!.......even new MSO front end looks out of place with the rest of the car......now the GT3 race car is a different story;).........hope they produce that as is but ROAD LEGAL:D

Agree with Widowmaker911 re the GT3. I think it will happen the same way the Scuderia works for the Red Cars.

Question: Is Mansory selling that hood with a McLaren badge on it (that's what the photo shows)? If so, that violates MacDaddy's trademark rights. If I were advising Ron D (I'm an attorney), I'd be on them like white on rice.

Just stirring things up again. :D

Great idea. Mansory is expensive may be more than MSO. They will make you something bespoke, it will look awesome and fit perfectly.

thanks all for your feedback..

after going to the store and seeing it in real life i made my decision NOT to go ahead with this. comments here were right about the badge being out of place and yes it is TOO MUCH. for now im not going to add anything.

again thank you all for your response :D!!
