Prius aero-kit---possibly a repost

I apologize if this has been seen a thousand times and I've just missed it, but I think this is fantastic, even if the rear skirts do stick out a bit. ((I posted a picture of this in the pics thread too.))

I think we need a dedicated Prius aero thread

Cool body kit- I wish that rear diffuser were actually as high as it seems.

I love that they even did a grille block on the front end

Most of the comments don't seem to like the styling. I think the wheel skirts could be improved, but aside from that I think it looks pretty sweet. Maybe it's just the ecomodder inside me.

Probably trying to make it "appealing" since the rest of the car screams "custom."
Just appealing to that crowd.

I disliked the comments that I read, but I often do. They did not seem to like any of the things (that they noticed) that would actually make the car more aerodynamic. They wanted the flashy stuff that just might be worse than stock.

This came out four years ago? Is this company still in business?
