Hethel Sport 400 Set installed. Great..

I wanted to thank Hethel Sport for the fast shipping, great communication and a great product. The bumpers fit perfectly and my body guy said the quality of the fiberglass was one of the best he has seen. I have loved this car since day one and years later... only 2 issues I have ever had with this car which was the starter and clutch master which was recently replaced.

A sharp stick thrust straight and true into the eyes of the nonbelievers who say the 400 front end isn't cool. Love it! May the odds ever be in your favor!

Agreed. Also I have had the car since new.. How much more modern this looks that the original design, I cannot even tell you. Looks sharper and wider...

I've always loved the redesigned front but also like the S1's front too. The 400 rear though....that's another story.

Chad! These guys liked it . And because they liked, she gave them a peek under the skirt.

BTW, Is there any guy with a nice thing parked out back that doesn't have something like the second picture in Jonny's (and my) thread. The ass of the car poking out of the garage. Usually taken the day you get the car home or after you install something from Hethel Sport. It's a classic!

S1 looks fine to me, always has.

Haha that cracked me up but your right lol. Also the only question I have now.. Is if I need a tow, the tow hook thread is covered by the grill. Was it moved on the 400 or are the holes in that grill big enough to fit the toe hook in? Thanks!

Ugh! Trying to prove me wrong with those nice pics. 🙂 Car looks gorgeous in that green!

And no, there is no car guy who hasn't done that by the way! Somewhat on topic with another plug for HethelSport.....great folks to deal with! Here's one of my own "ass shots" 🙂 after I ordered and installed their 400 wing.

The biggest difference between S1 and 400 as far as the rear is concerned seems to me to be the placement of the back up lights, the wing (if you didn't go all Hethel Sport with it), the exhaust exit and the opening for and shape of the diffuser. To my eye, the rest looks the same. I admit, that's a fair amount of difference but they're still identifiably very similar. I think the duck tail is prettier but the new car is supposed to added more downforce so that may play in the form over function department.

Everybody has my permission to like the one they have best without becoming a pill. I love how your car defies gravity in that shot!

HAHA! It's the new gravity wells I installed that allow it to do that.

I have no idea why but when I add photos that were taken in landscape mode rotate like that when I attach them. They seem to only do that on this board. I can rotate the pics beforehand and save but they still never attach in the correct orientation.

well good info to have. my wife backed into another car last night so I will either order a 400 rear bumper and wing or the GTE rear bumper. that thing looks bad ass from the rear but it aint cheap. I'm sure the insurance will want some contribution from me if I go that route. either way my 2014 S is getting a new rear end. I have heard great things about hethel sport.
