Must corner-cutting be glorified?

Not only has it earned a "feature" on one of the typical, trendy, and trite stance websites, but if one were to ask the owner of the G featured on this HIN pre-party flyer what aero his G37 is wearing, he would proudly proclaim a replica manufacturer that has not only ripped off the original design of the Zele G37 as seen on his car, but other JDM companies such as Nismo, Impul, INGS+1, C-West, Chargespeed, VeilSide, Amuse, and Vertex... 

Color me disillusioned, disenchanted, and disgusted.

JDMphasis... Innovation over Imitation


  1. our culture has gone to shit

  2. That car is gorgeous... its a shame he did not use authentic but the car still has serious time money and love involved. One of the nicest G's period. Would it be nicer authentic? Of course

    1. You are not wrong. I cannot disagree with you. Most people may need to be told that the aero is not authentic. The car looks sharp. That does not take away from the fact that the company selling that fake kit is making money off of Zele's design and their hard work and ingenuity. Despite what many choose to believe, knock-off and replica companies do harm the real innovators of the industry.
