they don't deserve the ricer look.

I think black wheels WITH wing is the best look for a 355C....

without a wing, they don't look special enough.... kinda lost half way between road car and race car...

WITH a wing, they look the part... the only down side is the attraction they attract...

I'd go for titanuim (dark) silver car, black wheels, wing, and red race seats.......

IF I could afford one.

yes...with the wing they look the part of a ricer. you're right.

different at the cost of ugliness isn't acceptable to me.

why does it have to look different? is there something wrong with the looks of a 355??

It's not ugly in many peoples opinion, which they are entitled to, but it's purposeful and effective... which is not an opinion.

There's nothing wrong with a 355 that looks like a 355. But having a 355C and having it look like a 355 is just not cricket, in my opinion.

If you want a normal 355.. SAVE MONEY, and buy one.

There are many true enthusiasts that would love to own a 355C and use it as intended.

ya know what? you can use it as intended WITHOUT the wing, like they did  for the first two or three years....and then it requires skill to drive instead of relying on the downforce.

and it's still ugly. anyone who says it isn't is the sort of person who likes an add on wing on a honda civic too.

which is fine....FOR THEM.

effective yes...2 seconds at PI....but so what? we're not racing against anyone anyway...it's just yourself and your car.

You're racing the clock at a track day that's timed.

and, well, if it's both faster AND safer with the wing, then I reckon it's a good idea.

I think it looks racy... which is what race cars should look like.... And no, a Civic cannot be compared equally.

why have a 355C and drive like a regular 355, when you could have a regular 355 and save money?
