It will cost you about 15k to do it right.

Kit costs around 3k just for the parts, then wheels, badges, interior, fit/paint

They sell for around 10k if done propper for a Modded Turbo versoin.

Yeh do it mate! I've seen a couple of really good ones in the past, and they look ace!

some people will go 'but at the end of the day its not gonna be a ferrari' - but ferrari's cost shit loads...

Providing its done well it looks brilliant - do it for the look and style, rather than coz you want a ferrari

Genuine Ferrari alloys and brakes are MEGA money! Prob cost you 10k just for those. Not even worth bothering with now. Rather than spend 20k on some shoddy MR2 replica, pick up a genuine 355 for 30k. One in the trader now, black 355GTS, 35k on the clock, yours for 32k. Plus, you won't get the piss ripped out of you all day long in the real deal

Only do it if its going onto a turbo with at least 300hp.

Theres 2 round my way and they look really good, only givaway if the rear side windows - they have vents on them on the MR2 but not on the F355

Cream leather retrim is also a must

I personally think you should kit a mr2 with the ferrari kit, but not for it to be a ferrari if you get me?

I personally think the Ferrari 355 looks lush. If there was a car released that looked like a ferrari 355 for a lot cheaper, but wasn't a ferrari, I'd still want one.

Make your one look different. For example, don't put it on geniune ferrari wheels, put it on some 19" chrome's or something different.

I doubt the speed is going to be a issue as I'm sure red will be using it as a show car, not a track car.
