Hartge X6 Revealed

Now I think this one doesn't look bad, wish tuners would dump the running boards.

Overall it looks descent. However, those flared fenders and overemphasized edges on some of these parts just make the entire kit look like it's definitely bolted on rather then blend with the rest of the car!

If you look at the side view, the lower front looks like you already hit a curb or something and it bent/buckled slightly underneath the car.

The front view looks like someone took parts from two different 1:18th model cars and super glued them together for this picture. The top portion looks definitely BMW up to just above the bumper and the bottom something else (I guess they are)

The rear view, although I like the general idea, I find that the center rounded portions look just a little too big, slightly smaller would look nicer...

Just my 2 cents, and that's all they are ... MINE

This is better than most I've seen so far. I like the back, agree about the sides.
I'm not sure about the front , one minute I like it then next I don't (think the wire mesh is wrong kind, right idea just wrong material. spaces in the mesh are not proportional to spaces in the grill). But compared to others this is going in the right direction, not too gaudy.

I would just take the wheels and few extra HP from the optimized ECU for the engine.... Everything else they can keep for pimping the VW Golfs from the 80s...

Horrid. What happened to this?

I loved this X6 when I first saw it last year. Wish the X6 "M" would have taken cues from it.

Hidious.

Looks like a bunch of 16 year olds have gone wild with their parent's credit cards in Halfords and bolted on as much after-market tat as possible
