Kaminari Back? W/ nothing else?
Okay, my friend wants to trade me his kaminari back for my stock one. First of all, I love the kaminari back. Second of all, no there's nothing wrong with it, it's just that his dad is making him get rid of it. But I don't have enough money to buy the rest of the kit for a while...will that look alright?? just the kaminari back and stock front and sides?? Also, what if I lower my car with the Hotchkis springs?? will THAT look wierd with only a kaminari back?? I don't know if this helps, but I got 17's...

Ditto. The rear would not flow with the rest of your car. Since you guys are friends, try and work out a deal where you pay him off.

Take it now, it is better to have one piece instead of none, and you are going to get the rest later right? Plus that kaminari rear bumper is sweet. I say go for it.

nah don't go with only one piece of the kit...would look really out of whack. That is something a civic owner would do.

if you are going to get the rest than buy it now, just keep it in a safe place until it's all ready to go on...

In California, there are ALOT of cars with only aftermarket front bumpers installed... they look goofy!

In fact, I have seen much more cars in SCC and iTunner with just front and sides, and no rear - those things look horrid thumbsdown

"BODYKIT", meaning that it should be a kit for the ENTIRE body of the car... without that, it would just be, "replaced XX BUMPER because i got into an accident and couldn't afford to repair with OEM parts"

everyone has different views - and if this is the style that you are going for - then by all means, go for it thumbsup
