    Even for a starting price of $9k........no thanks The motor and interior are nice but it looks like a 4X4 and that body kit has to go.

    I like a nicer little EF'er but this one needs work. You'd think he had a K-swap and Discontinued JDM....Yo Rims for that asking price

    Should of at least put it down on the ground for some pictures.

    That's the best body kit you can get on the EFs...

    He can get that price if he parts it out.

    No body kit is best IMO.

    They look nice when they are low and have Si front ends. No tint looks sweet to me.

    He should part out the goods and replace with stock stuff. He'll get closer.

    I agree- most of the time. For most cars, there's one or two well designed body kits that actually complements the lines given by the factory. The Wings West kit is one of those in my opinion. Same with the Airwalker on the S2000.

    4x4? Not everyone likes replacing oil pans or scraping bumpers and exhaust. that thing is sitting nice, comfortably low, and level. clean build IMO. I wouldnt pay 11500 for it, but I could see him asking that on the extreme high end to start.

    I like low cars.....always have and always will. I am also a California valley resident and do not worry about the weather. So.....IMO that car is 4X4 all the way. It looks like an effort that failed (adjustable). Should put it down an inch and adjust camber accordingly. Just stating my opinion. I could almost put two fingers between the tire and fender. Just like body kits......I see them all the time.....all the time. So I know that means more people like them than dislike them. I just know what I like and don't like. A white EF Si hatch sitting low on some 15" Web rims and no tint with HKS exhaust.......that is a sick little car. I think that is clean, classic, and subtle but those who know whats up wonder what is under the hood.

    You really risk damaging your car if you go much lower than that in Lubbock. This car is pretty low for these streets. I am not joking either, I've got my car almost an inch higher now than when I was in southeast Texas, and I still have to be careful.

    I been down 2.25" (tucked the fender just a little) since 1996 and only had a stupid ex-girlfriend flatten my header on a speed bump she took head on (not so much of a DD when I was drunk). Little scrape on my front spoiler from a parking block I parked too close to. No back woods country roads with pot holes around me so sitting low is not a risk.....keep your eyes open and its all good. I learned to lessen the impact of expansion gaps in bridges and and overall elevation changes from road work. etc.

    Not sitting on the fender (or damn close to it) is a waste of money IMO (esp an adj set up) if you want better performance but the 4x4 look....get better shocks and sway bars and leave the stock springs.
