yes--don't do it.

it will cause your car to look 'off' because your sides will be lower than your front/rear.

my advice: wait until you get a front and rear before putting the sideskirts on.

If you wont to get rid of the stock skirt look with the grey (i didnt like it either)you could just get some paint and paint it the color of your car until you get the whole bodykit. SOme people like this better anyways. thumbsup

yep, go to a local body shop and have them painted, shouldn't be anything more than 200 bucks to have them both done. thumbsup
