Definitely has some potential! Get some Calais tailights and a garnish sticker from OBT100 and it will look spot on! And as G said, please dont ruin it with that front bar.

Well at least you chose a car in the best colour.

Yeah don't put a body kit on or those wheels, a standard looking car looks heaps better and more police friendly.

The only kits that look good on Calais' are those that came out on Calais' originally imo.

The only time a kit looks ok is if it all one colour, not 2 tone. But it's up to you your car, your choice.

Grp A front bar looks crap. That's my opinion.

They sure do. You can order them without the calais cutout if you want.

You've got a clean car. Put some new headlights on and don't put that group A bumper on.
