    ok i have an ef hatch and i was just looking for some suggestions.. i cant afford my dream EG right now so i have to settle with my EF and i was just wondering what are the best bodykits to put on an EF to make it look much more round and less square like an EG?? the closest circular kit i could find that was not soo ricy was the Street fighter one.. but then theres these two parts that stick out on the bottom part that kill the whole look.. any bodykit suggestions and where can i find a bunch of pictures of EF;s with kits on them??

    Ok... please keep in mind I am not familiar with the EG's or EF's at all. However, I do like body kits (some) and my personal opinion is as follows....

    If you are going to get a body-kit get the whole kit. If you just add the front bumer or rear bumper or both the car will not look right. What I mean is, the goal, in my opinion, is to have the car look smooth as a whole. Nothing should stick out or look out of place. If you just add the bumpers then the car will not flow if you look at it from the side. The front and rear will appear wider or lower to the ground. This concept can be carried over to many other applications. For example, rims. If you put rims on a car you don't want people to only focus on them. You want the overall appearance of the car to improve, not have people look at the car and be like "DAMN those are some big-ass rims." The same goes for those hideous gargantuan spoilers. That's stupid. Also, if you put a body-kit on, for the love of god!!, don't drive around with it unpainted any longer than you have too, if at all.

    Well, hopefully I have helped influence you a little bit. Hope your car turns out just how you want it.

    sorry but the wings just not gonna work.. and the front is a lil too square-ish.. im really trying to look for a rounder look.. so any one know what kinda kit that one guy has on the pics i posted^^?

    yea thats true about the "just adding one front bumper".. i didnt know if the combat bumper was low enough to make it stick out.. but i guess im definitely going to buy the other parts.. what usually goes good with the combat?? anyone have them on their EF's??

    My buddy bought that for his CRX. It fit like complete shit. He sent it back, as the fiberglass knock off it was going to replace(because of "poor fitment") fit much better.

    i got the kit and wing from a place called West Coast Spoilers and i dont think they are in business anymore but you can get the same kit and wing from importfan.com.

    this is the first time i ever heard of someone complaining of wings west fitment ever...

    i have gotten 2 of their 6 piece kits and both fit perfectly, and neither came directly from wings west...

    did the urethane say wings west on the back of it?

    there was someone on craigslist for NY that was selling his wings west kit for 150...
    i have an extra wings west front end if anyone needs one...

    1. What good is rounding out the bottom of a car, if the top is still squared?

    2. IF YOU MUST, buy the R33 Front, W.W. Sides, and a W.W. or Buddy Club Rear. Just make sure everything flows well. You dont want to put a W.W. Front with Invader sides and the Extreme Rear. It would look like ASS!!

    3. Wings West kits fit perfect. Period.

    4. Urethane owns. Period.

    5. No matter what you do, your EF will always be... a boxy EF. If you don't dig its bodylines, keep it clean, save all your bodykit money, sell it and buy what you like.

    6. I will KILL you... if you ruin another EF.

    Thank you.
