Is the side scoop in appropriate place?

Hey everyone,
Just curious is the side scoop placed appropriately? I am away and had a friend take care of it at a local body shop. Click image for larger version

Doing a Google Images search, some show the top on the body line, some show under. There are also different styles and probably the reason why. Some the bottom fits right into the lower body line. If it looks good from a side view and everything seems to line up and flow, I wouldn't worry about it. Yours look like they may be a shorter style from top to bottom than the ones that run all the way up to the body line.

Wow ... you actually let somebody drive your car? Besides that, in my personal opinion I don't think you should dude unless you add louvers also. I think side scoops are overkill... But it's your ride bro

It's kinda hard to tell from the angle in the pic. Can you upload a side shot of your car so we can see a bit better? All the scoops on AM show the top of the scoop sitting in line with the top crease on the side of the car. Your install doesn't look right from the picture that's posted.

Nah my dad took my car lol. Nobody drives a stick. Yeah but some of the pics on am are slightly below the line as well. How difficult would it be to move slightly up?

It still looks low to me, but you asked for opinions and if you're happy with it, that's all that really matters.

To me, the bottom edge is more important than the top with the scoop you have. If the bottom edge lines up with the body line on the door and flows, which it looks like it might in your second picture, then it is in the right place.

If you look at the tip of the scoop it is directly in line with the contour of the car. If it would've lined up w the top then the bottom wouldn't look good.

Then he's got it in the right place.

That almost looks like a 99-04 scoop for some reason. Do you remember what brand they were? These are mmd...

I believe this is the one he has, it's not the MMD from AM, and he has it installed too low.

To low and too far forward by the looks of the AM pic.

I used images from the Cali Special for my 08, as they are installed from the factory. Will do the same for the 14.

The bottom lines up with the lines of the bottom of your door perfectly. If it was raised it would look out of contour and ruin the flow of the lines. Looks best as is.
