    Ok all u car people. I have a 95' civic coupe with a (in my mind) ugly kit. What do yall suggest would be a good kit for me to look at. I hate flashy and bulky kits. What do you all think???? (vielside has my idea of style, but dont need to spend 2 g's on a kit)

    Rock it, Stock it.

    IMO, fuk body kits !!!

    why would you spend $2-3K on a bumber cover that's gonna get all jacked up if you hit a dip too fast or if you turn into a driver-way at the wrong angle. personally i don't like to make an investment like that's gonna be on the outside of my car where other people and the elements can jack it up.

    2-3k?????? How 'bout @$400 for the full body kit plus @800 for fitment and paint? that's not that bad. And some bodykits are good-looking. It all depends on what you like. But if you like Veilside, you are a ricer. :lol:

    I'd rather have 2,000 other cars that look like mine than 4,000,000. And with custom paint, and a custom hybrid or custom fabricated body kit, there will be 0 other cars like yours.


    It's easy to make fun of, but when someones car looks nice, AND it's faster than yours... you really don't have a leg to stand on when ragging on them. I'm not staying stock doesn't look OK... if It didn't I wouldn't own the car I have now. But I'm just saying in my opinion, body kits are a valid way of enhancing your car. Like it or not, I really don't care.

    The rise of Originality is strong with this one. Good point, seriously people are actually standing up and saying "I like it and that's what matters, so screw off". THat's what matters, what the person likes, not what anyone else likes, I say buy what you want and looks best on the car, not what some guys on a honda board that talk about swaps all day say.

    These people just say get oem because they don't want to be put in that "ricer" category with everyone else, and yeah if you hit an oem bumper on the ground or a curb, etc. it will break also.

    i prefer the stock (slightly modded) look because it keeps the cops off my ass
    big fan of function over form... so if i happen to find something that truely does help the aerodynamics of the car then thereis a chance ill get a kit

    but thats my oppinion for my car so :gives:

    mugen kit, wind-tunnel proven, looks nice too.


    I have a big problem with cop preception also, though. I can agree there. It's the main reason I'm im the process of trying to quiet down my exhaust.

    true that... Also, it's unfortunately one of those things that if it isn't the real thing, don't even bother.
