I'm not a fan of wide body conversions but that actually looks good.

I don't see the point of body kits.

-to make sexy lines on your silly square car.
-maybe you have gobs of power and you'd like to install tires that can use them. you don't want your 275's to be poking out all stupid and non-aerodynamic.
-so your car is distinguished from the other 20,000 cars they made that year.
-aerodynamics.
-resale value
-for the ladies

All kidding aside. I think this is the best thing we can all aspire to: around 100hp (check), light weight (check) with great handling (yaris already handles well and better with some tweaks), good brakes and a great sounding exhaust = momentum car.

This ef hatch is a really nice example, with a tasteful, yet racy look. I really like this car, but our cars are a lot more commonly available and not thief magnets, with much better sitting positions IMO):
