turbo flares on a roundie, thoughts?

I know it's a matter of taste and preference but I just want to get various opinions from 02'ers on this board.

Does it adversely affect the value upon resale or depends on the buyer? I'm almost certain that the pool of potential buyers diminishes with the addition of the turbo flares as oppose to keeping it stock.

thanks for the input.

Even though I own one that has flares,

I'd say a 2002 does look better without 'bolted on' flares.

Some of the metal work that's been done over the years, though, is fantastic.

Also, I don't think a 2002 with a normally- aspirated 4 needs more

rubber than you can squeeze under the stock sheet metal.

It certainly doesn't improve all- 'round handling, even though it

does give you additional cornering grip.

That's me.

My feeling on flares is that hopefully there is some additional performance to back up the aggressive look and wider tires. Assuming we're talking a regular carbed 2002, I suspect it might devalue a car a bit... were it a Tii then maybe more devaluing. But, if it were a nice build then it's probably about the same. Purists concerened with value I'm sure will always want everything stock, but personally I think the 2002 is a good car stock that can be made into a great car with the right modifications, values be damned.
