I don't like the front or rear bumpers, or the side skirts or the break light on top of the boot...
The rear lights Or the front lights and I'm not a fan of chrome wheels and the number plate lights look to bright.

I also like your 'What's not to like about it' comment :D You obviously have a passion for your car and good on you for it! ;)

Mate... Where can I view some pics of Your Calibra??  :o

I'm very well aware of the 'I Hate Body Kits' Brigade...  ;)

The 'Calibra Bumpers look very ordinary' and that's why so many, add Extensions to them!!!

But Thanks for Your Input!!! ;)

The Centre Brake Light on the boot, came Standard on all Australian Calibra's didnt it?

THAT'S CORRECT!!!

Only the Turbo Model here, came with a Rear Spoiler and Body Kit...  >:(

But even that Rear Spoiler, doesn't have a Brake Light built into it...   :'(

I'd have to Import such a Spoiler from the UK, and right now, that's LOW Priority for Me...

Mate... From what I saw on Your Build Thread...

It's indeed a 'Very Standard Looking' Calibra, and the Hoses are what Stood Out the most!!!

As for looking deeper... I doubt too many people will be getting down low enough, to view the Yellow Painted Suspension Parts...

Certainly a Nice Calibra no doubt, but not a Head Turner!!! ;)

TBH, i'd have Martin's turbo over most kitted Calibra's any day. I do prefer the standard look though so i'm possibly biased lol

I'd also take a well maintained and "clean" Calibra over one with a bulky kit. I'm a fan of clean lines.

This is, IMO, as bad as it gets.


Your "Ghost" looks much tidier than that one of course, but I still think the bumpers are a little too massive. Not that much, but a little =P

EDIT: No wait. That blue car could have been worse with a giant scoop on the hood!

ok ok ok,

Lets be cool and not let this go to far.

Ok I started it with my comment.

No my car is not as much of a 'head turner' which i'm fine with coz that's the way I like it.
I didn't intentionally post on your thread to  insult you or your car. As I've said it looks like a well fitted kit.

The first time I looked at the thread I didn't post anything!  (so not to offend)  the thread has had over 170 views and nr 30 odd posts.
most of which I'm sure don't want to offend.

But, when you said to Angus

What's not to like on The Ghost??? Do tell...  :o


you where opening yourself to comments! (sorry)

or was it a rhetorical question ??

As jckf pointed out its along way from the OTT kits that are about.

Please don't be so offended that not everyone loves your car as much as you do.
I could post you links to threads where others have said they don't like my wheels when I changed them to the ones I've got ! or the colour of them! and other things!

Yes its a VERY clean tidy well done calibra  :)

As long as you love your car! nothing else matters!

(others will know what I mean)
its defo not a Kermit!!!

(that's a good thing! BTW)

If it was Black, it could then be called: The Bat Mobile!!! ;)

That's an 'EXTREME KIT' there, where as mine isn't all that Radical...

Come on chap, if you know what our opinion is why are you getting so offended! If you like yours that way. then you cant like ours the way they are?? (standard) but we/I don't mind!

the difference is the car in Angus's avatar is a real race car not a street car.

don't be so offended chap.  go have a look through other threads in the 'show of your car section' have a read of the comments on most of them and relax!
