    it looks good, but i'd say not....

    if you were going all out then maybe, but its a bit random. Spend the money on somethin like putting it towards an FMIC or somethin "usefull"

    thats just my opinion though, you may have a different mind set :)

    I think its looks a bit odd. I'd say no.

    Out of interest, how do you open the hatch?

    I don't like it - it looks like there's something missing - and there is!

    Ah missed that. I'd like that, but I'd still have some badging on there somewhere.

    Think it looks good but a little bare, so maybe just add a badge or two.

    I think the back of the FR looks just right as it is. Plus everyone who I've every shown the 'S' boot hatch to has thought it's pretty cool. I like it.

    I also honestly think you'll devalue your car if you do it. I know that when I was looking for a used car I stayed well clear of anything with obvious exterior modifications.

    It's all personal opinion though.
