Pretty sure rotiform isn't. I know none of those other manufactures offer bubble lips like rotiform does, and they seem to share some common parts with fiske.
Edit: wow you were right, this makes me dislike rotiform even more than I already did. Not only do they only rip off other designs constantly and claim to be "pushing boundaries," they make terrible overpriced products as well.

I can't understand why anyone would bash auto cars when we have such ridiculous traffic congestion here.

I'm never getting a DD manual car again unless I move away. For a second weekend/track car, sure of course I'd get manual.

yup! an old acquaintance of mine had to drive auto for a while because of doctors orders! (post accident)

i understand and can appreciate your (and that) point of view but i think some ppl just couldnt be bothered with learning to drive stick. especially those who just want to cruise around town and nothing else

Only the cast wheels though, which is pretty common price across the board. the 3 pc. are $4500+

Yea PUR is a branch of ADV1 both of which get their wheels made by MHT


AVD1 is run by the original guy from 360forged after he screwed a bunch of people over and sold off the company he moved on to starting up ADV1.

Niche has some of the exact same wheels in their line up without the "custom paint" and AVD1 price tag.

ADV.1® 5.1 Wheels - Custom Rims

NICHE® GT-5 Wheels - Matte Black Rims

instead of explaining it myself, i'll let this link do it

http://oppositelock.jalopnik.com/why-more-cars-need-three-pedals-511497664

if one "can't be bothered" to, for the sake of argument, drive the car the "old fashioned" way, then how can they be bothered to spend thousands of dollars on things like bodykits, spoilers and wheels? it's just sad to see that in a lot of cases, people who have the money (or people whos parents have the money) just blow it all on the overall appearance of the car in an effort to make some sort of a pussy magnet, when they can't even take those 4-5 hours to learn how to properly drive the car. i'm not saying this frs driver fits that demographic, i'm just speaking generally

the difference i think is more in how the kit looks on the car

look at the front for example :

version 1 :



version 2 :



and also the version 1 has a big wing while the version 2 has like a lip

back end version 1 :



back end version 2 :



this is what it seems to me..could be more but 'tis all i know

Agreed. But when the car looks like a track/drift missile with 285/35 size rear tires, I would find it hilarious to learn it has 150 lb-ft torque and a slushbox.

What's supposed to be a 30k affordable sporty car quickly turns into a quite a money pit with a $5000 widebody kit before paint and install + $4000 wheels + etc. that's arguably even slower now with the huge wheels and probably stock power but it does look badass though!

V1 is suppose to be more track like with more exposed tire. V2 is more a street kit with fully covered fenders (extend down more)

different wings, front bumper, fenders thats extend closer to the tires

Thing I hate about the RB kit is they make the same style kit for a couple other cars which kinda makes the whole look less special
