    if you get offended by that, you are going to have a tough time here on hondaswap. toughen up little soldier. body kits suck anyways. but if you must get one, get urethane from a name brand company. if you don't, it won't fit for shit and will crack immediately.

    I like bodykits, not those big ass ones that looks like you made it out of an Escalade and bolted it on the front of a Geo-Metro, the little front "faschias" or whatever they're called where it makes it look a little lower and adds some style to it, makes it personal... you know?


    Edit: Kind of like this only on the front, same style different look though. Considering it would be on the front.

    Edit 2: Here's the link if you like it, full kit $759.

    Edit 3 (sheesh): Or some Honda body kits since that's for a Mazda...

    kkid doesn't. sorry, i thought it was his thread. anyways, don't mess with all the cf stuff, you will get pissed if it gets scratched or damaged. i would stick with the cf hood and a really clean paint job. a good paint job is at least $3500. nothing is better than a clean car. i would turbo it before buying a bunch of body kip stuff. at least the lip kit is a little better than the whole body kit.

    Yeah, when I get a car though performance will be more important than some body kit. Not to mention why the hell would I buy a hood and a bodykit before I had a car?:huh:
