I think people are too caught up with performance they can't use. Who has confirmed their 0-100 times? If you do then you just thrashed the daylights out of your machine.
As far as style, no worse than the squashed snake look that everyone copies, even the newest toyota. You need a finder's guide to see what car you are looking at.
If it holds together than it is worth it.
I think people lose sight that we are talking about transportation and not Bathurst.
