Oh I know why, because it's all the ricers that think that spending $1000 dollars on a body kit and a 5 foot wide wing on a FRONT wheel drive car
will make their car faster. All the while, good old stock Taurus pulls up with them at a light, and blows their god damn doors off, time and time again. However a rAcer will spend same said 1000 dollars on their engine, and blow our doors off and take our trunk lid with them.
Kits are 98% of the time aesthetic, and our cars aren't reaching speeds where the 2% of effective users are at, nor <facing the music> ever be at.
I think a drop, rims, tint, and a spoiler (not a wing mind you, but a spoiler) can look just as good, if not better (but much cleaner), than a full kit and paint job, unless you want to go full ricer status and put your kit on THEN save for another month for the paint job.

EDIT: However, thanks to the remaining decline in the economy and job market, complete rice outs seem to be at an all time low, thank god.
Needs side skirts...almost looks like a mustang. I agree on the rear end of the Gen 4, They need to al least put some lights back there, or maybe some spraypaint art, the rest of it looks ok if your into that sort of thing. I'm not one for body kits either, specially on my taurus....It bottoms out way to much on these new york roads as it is, i cant even keep scraps off my bumper. I just seen it, figured I'd show it.
definitely looks like a Mustang kit on that yellow one. A bit too low on the rear and not low enough on the sides.
I like the white Gen 4 but think the fron and back are a bit too long when looking straight at it. At least offest it some with some pinstriping or some wicked a** paint.
I think an SC400 front and that rear with the right side skirts would look pretty good. Just have to keep the front round and the rea square like the factory did. Other than that just doesn't quite look right. That white one in gunmetal grey or dark charcoal with tinted windows would be about right. Perhaps one day when the prices have fallen off some. Also the kit is fiberglass, no thank you.
