X-1 Fenders - Yes or No?

I already have the NSX side vents which I'll mold onto the rear quarter panels. Should I get these X-1 Fenders as well? Opinions - thumbsup or thumbsdown


Getting Kaminari Kit (don't have any pics of that with these X-1's)

I don't think they flow with the lines of the car. On top of that ... they serve no purpose, and look big and stupid to have a hole in the side of your car.

i beleive that the serve a style purpose. (of course this is a matter of opinion)

but in any case..body kits really don't serve a purpose other than looks. almost all body kits are heavier than the stock sides/front/rear so if you want to get technical outside of style, then body kits are really a negative.

if you like the style, then that in itself is a reasonable purpose thumbsup

true, the only purpose it would serve is style, just like the kam kit. Anyway, after the usual bolt-ons, the only other route you can go on an NA GT is aesthetics...

that's my latest goal

Get the X-1 Fenders. I just bought mine and the fitment was great!!!! The fiberglass could of been a little thicker but overal a thumbs up from.

I will have pics up in about 2 or 3 weeks once the car is out of the shop. By the way they flow awsome with the Kam Kit. When i did the test fit i loved how they looked with the Kam Kit!!!!!

If you're using a pic from your hard drive, just click on Attach a Picture below the input screen and browse to the folder you have it in. If it's online, you need to right click on the image, go to properties, and copy the url. Then click on Image below and paste it. That should do it.

Let me know if you need any more help wave
