look at the rear again. true that they are almost alike (the fronts are what usually determines what kit you buy between these 2), but there are some slight differences.

they look teh exact same to anyoen who doesn't know better.

TRD sides flare a llil more in the back, teh rear sticsk down alil longer.

front teh ww is a lil lower form teh TRD kit it was copied from.(not mechanical kit i.e. action package.)

the TRD front mounts with screws wherer wings wewst mounts with tape.

i feel TRD looks better cauase it is more defined.

actualy... BLITZ, VIZAGES and RMM also look the same to anyone who doesn't know better
and while I'm on that, anyone who doesn't know better will have you think they are driving a sports car, while in fact, they are only driving an economy vehicle (ie; Celica, crx or civic)

the TRD sides & rear and ww attach the same way... in the exact same locations.

Here we go again. They are not the same, WW is based on TRD, but not a copy. I can live with WW rear and front lip, but the skirts are plain ugly, It's like a tumor has grown out of the side of the car. The TRD skirts are at least more defined.

regardless of cooltoy's opinion, you can tell that there exists a consensus (as well, you can see the pictures for yourself) that the ww sides and the TRD sides are virtually indistinguishable to the average person.

Save your money and get ww. They fit perfectly thumbsup

All I'm saying is that while you maintain they are different because of minute differences between the two (about which I have never argued with you), MOST people agree that they are practically identical. happywink
