    Body Kits

    Hi guys,

    I've been sketching my car trying to make a good custom design... wether its a paint job, body kit, rims, lights etc--you know, anything that would make my car unique. I also tried searching the net for inspiration and stuff. And this is what I found out...

    Well, first of all, this is my car:


    And this is what struck me:


    (Sorry, I'm blocking my car by the way... It's the only picture I have of my car with the closest angle similar to the 2nd picture.)

    Which made me think, how much mods can you do before you overdo it?

    Well of course the answer would be different everytime you ask a different person. But I'd like to get your inputs as well.

    What do you think? What is a balanced look for you--customizing/modifying your ride without losing its identity.

    "Overdone" is tough to define, but you know it when you see it. That second car you posted is it. Textbook definition of overdone. You can't even tell what it is anymore... :?

    Good wheels
    Nice stance
    Front lip - definitely
    Tasteful rear lip - maybe

    And that's it. 8)

    My favorite Sapporo:



    Could use a front lip, but it's gorgeous as is...

    Yep, could use a lip. And for me, bigger wheels but your right. It sure looks damn pretty. It's like a lady without make-up but looks absolutely gorgeous.

    LOL! That's funny. I hope the owner of that red car doesn't see that cause he'll feel bad spending that much money setting his car up to look like a whore. :lol:

    I think he spent more for the set-up than the actual price tag of the car.
