    Bodykits :puke2: tbh!

    P.S. I'm not saying all bodykits are hideous, but it is my oppinion that a tasteful kit is a rarity.

    Hmm, I actually love the front bumper. It's so mean and aggressive.
    Hate the rest of the kit though.

    looks ok but i would like to bet a weeks wage that it doesnt just bolt on as a direct replacment for your old bumper skin lots of cutting filling etc it tend to de the detailingthat lets these down like spot light mounts grill inserts etc can look ok then 10miles down the road the glass has split and it looks a dogs dinner

    I dont know whether i am going mad but im thinkin i actually like those rear lights???

    Maybe its just the angle/distance/bodykit, not sure whether they would look right on standard bodywork and up close.

    Gotta say it's not my cup of tea. It's all a bit too wibbly-fast and wobbly-furious for me; but each to their own.

    Best thing about them: They've got pretty LEDs in them...

    Worst thing about them: They look pretty damn close to the tail lights off a new 3 series (eek!) (and I suppose that means they look pretty close to Nissan lights too! (eek! eek!))

    If someone had the good sense to do some clusters that looked just like the OEM facelift lights, but have groups of LEDs instead of bulbs I'm sure they'd be on to a winner!

    Regards,

    Rob.

    Yes, it is lol, but the rear bumper on the other kit offends me much more than anything this one has to offer!
