Just a thought

I have been looking and searching for some body kits/modifications/dress up, however you want to look at it or call it. Its not that I dont like how the car looks stock or anything, just want to look a little different. I really love the chargepspeed wide body kit. But really cant see spending that much money for all that. Was wondering what anyone thought about a wide body on just the rear of the car (basically the fenders and rear bumper) and an aftermarket front bumper. This set-up might not even happen but was just looking for opinions/thoughts. And I know they will be mixed opinions. Just a thought that Im throwing out there.

Widebodies are typically expensive, but I'm sure it would look pretty cool though. A front lip makes a pretty big impact if you didn't want to change the whole front bumper. Changing grills does also.

Yeah I know that the widebodies are crazy expensive, hence the reason I really dont want the whole thing. I would also need 4 new rims and tires if I went that route, plus installation and paint. Not really looking to spend that much. I want that stand out kind of look and all. I have looked into front lips and figure for the price of the lips I have looked at the whole bumper is just as good an idea. Like I said just an idea that got in my head, it will probably pass, but who knows.

we sell the poly front lips for like 100, IMO they make the car look better. They come in black and you dont have to paint them, although you could.

this a what they look like, they kid on the scooter is extra!

Hey "New", money is always short. Get what you can , when you can..To hell w/ all those that will say "It's ricey!". It's your car, I say put whatever the hell you want on it....Make it YOUR car..If they don't like it FUNK EM'!! I, for one, think the "sleeper" look is boring!! We all know what our cars can do. Why hide behind stock exterior, & then list your $10,000 in mods?? is the point? If ya got it, show it. (if thats your thing). NOTE: To all "sleepers", not knock'n your style, again it's your ride. But at the same time, stay the hell off people that choose to go "ricey". Oh yea, although expensive, the wide rear sounds bad ass to me. I say go for it!! "That's like, your opinion.Man." The Dude

For those that replied thanks. I have looked into the lips, i do like them. But trying to stand out a little, a little original, but dont want to be overboard. Thanks again everyone.
