    Default To kit or not to kit?

    I am tossing up whether or not to get a new kit for my car....or just go JDM stylz and just front lip the bar. My car is 041 white and I am already running trd skirts, jblood copy pods and recently smashed up my topstage front lip. bumpers are panda atm. I am looking at either 2 options:

    - Uras front bar, side skirts, sell uras rear bar and keep the jbloods on because its the only way I the look of the rear bar.

    - Take skirts & pods off, get JDM front bumper and new lip.

    I really like the look of a simple JDM look, but I think im leaning towards the uras style because I havent seen much of them and I think they look pretty nice.

    If i went that way my next question would be what colour to paint the bumpers

    Panda or all white??

    Both have been done but if anyone can give suggestions or pm me some pics that would be great.

    Thanks guys

    street car. no kit. for sure. either get one of the smaller kit style front bars (uras, origin with the vents in the sides behind the indicators)

    no side skirts, stock rear bar.

    just makes the car so much more inconspicuous. to make a kit look good, if think you really need rims 8" minimum for 14s, and 8.5" for 15s.. otherwise it looks like some CYBER honda.

    black bars for sure, or "panda" bars.

    kouki front bar+lip , with sides and current rear setup will look awsome and still be inconspicuous, or even a uras front bar with the rest will still look good and work with the wheels you have

    yeah, i run my car without the side skirts though on the street. wheels are a bit big though and poke a bit too much, looks a bit like a monster truck even though its slammed.

    but with the sides on it just looks to D1/im a hoon/young please pull me over ect.

    im gonna change to a different tyre combo later, 195 45 front, 185 55 rear. think that'll look better, and 185s do spin up a lot easier than 195.

    j blood pods and skirts (I found the OEM skirts too small with pods) and a lip on the front look sick for a streeter

    I was running OEM bars with a N2 style lip and smashed it, so have gone to an origin bar and prefered the lip for sure..


    I must say though I find the origin bar less of cop bait as it hides the fact your running modded track/camber more than a stocky bar

    to me if its droped and loud your cop bait if you got a kit its not all that different i think it depends on the kit and if it looks clean or not a clean car is not as bad as a pig i love pigs but cops love them to.
