The bumper at the back comes with a Sports Diffuser look or with a smooth and stylish design finish. Available side skirts come either with or without LED lighting, including 5 lights on each side) which is connected to the internal lighting system. The kit is rounded off by a 3-piece rear spoiler demonstrating again the attention to detail by MEC Design.

The front comes with 11x20 4.5 inch outer rims and 285/25 ZR 20 Hankook rubber, and the rear comes with 13x20 5.0 inch outer rims with 325/25 ZR 20 Hankook rubber.
