Yeah the front unlimited hydro canards on front aren't my taste either.  Back ones that you asked about,  don't affect me either way to be honest.

 

Also my opinion...... There is so much black on car,,  the stripe on hood seems to much,  or redundant or something. The stickers make it look different than all the bazillion other 510s you see though so i kinda like them.


So somehow while i was driving back from Eaglerock swap meet i somehow caused YOU to post this,,,, do really think members on this site are that stupid to believe i caused it??

I like the fogs but I hate the fins. Too busy.

I only say this because you asked for an opinion.

Well if it isnt a mid to late 50's car it doesn't have fins but... I have never been a fan of canards on anything that wasn't a GT car throwing sparks out the rear as it drags down the race track.  For starters they really only server  a purpose on an aerodynamically designed for them to actually create noticeable downforce which a brick (510) won't do.  Two the liability from someone walking past and cutting themselves because they aren't watching where they are walking. Finally because when the damage they do to the surrounding area when they get ripped off from whatever which they will. 

 

P.S. they look out of place on a 510 or any pre 90's japanese car Go with an air dam and a splitter.  Looks better and is actually functional.  This is of course my opinion and ultimately it is your car which means what you think is all that matters.

 

**EDIT**

I take it back on the what you think part.  It's a 4 door so I feel like putting performance looking things on it is like a guy putting a performance (loud coffee can) exhaust on his mazda 626..... Why?


I hate when people go cheap on repairs or modifications.  If you were just going to light your money on fire using band-aid fixes you might as well have given it to me.

Honestly, I think you have too many of them. My friend put a couple on his car and they are quite subtle.

I've made two posts here previously. Both were very long with all the things I found wrong with it. Then feeling much better.... I erased almost all of it.

 

We are all different. I like a car to be as untouched looking as possible on the outside and enjoy the enhanced riding experience much more. Comfortable seats, better handling, better brakes, gearing and a 5 speed... I don't care much that others can't see this on the outside.

The front ones are alright and IMO look neither good or bad. Those back ones though don't really go with the car.
