Best Value Body Kit ?

Question: What's the best looking body kit with the best all around value. I'm hoping not to spend like $1200 for a Kaminari, but I also don't want something that looks like I made it myself. rofl Go ahead and list the body kits you have, price you paid, and the experience you've had with them. Post pics of the kits too, i'm looking around. thumbsup

the best value body kit has to be Bomex...you can find some sites if you do a search for Bomex Celica on a search string ranging from 576 to ~740$ plus the 180 for residential shipping...its even available on the ecelica store..it looks sleek and from what ive heard it has predrilled holes and its fitment is perfect...im saving up till end of sept buying all my mods one by one, storing it, and put it all at once so it comes out like a brand new spanking car outta the shop...but yeah bomex would be my choice if i dont opt for getting a replica vs1...lets face it i have an auto gt with 85k miles..im not droppin a shitload for a daily driver...jus breahtermods, carbon fiber Hood, and that body kit, drop ,rims..

Well, I don't really like the Bomex kit. The rear and back are too wide open, but the price ain't bad. thumbsup Thanks guys, keep submitting.

West Wings doesn't look too bad. Thanks Josh! I like the Veilside kit, but the back end looks ugly! thumbsdown. I'd like a full kit that I like completely. I know Bomex is popular and so is Blitz, but with the Honda crowd. rolleyes This is gonna be hard.

Any more kits? wave

WingsWest.

-It looks good (not overdone and ricey)
-Its not too low to the ground, so you can get it and still lower your car without having to worry too much about scraping like you would with say a veilside kit.
-Its well priced.
-Exellent quality.

here's a shot of mine:

um...i dont have pics but how about the JetSpeed kit (the replica name is Battle Series).

the original is made in Australia and it will cost you both of your nuts grin
but the replica from KrayzeKustoms is said to have a good fitment.

I personally love the front bumper thumbsup

Just don't go with a replica. You never can tell if it's gonna fit or not even if someone else got the same kit.

I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

The only thing bad about that place is that they rape you with shipping, which is $200. eek

I have the D-speed one on mine, I like it, but it is hard to find a center exit exhaust. The d-speed one runs about 2 g's, but I heard you can get it cheaper, but I think its a replica.

...really...are you sure...I've heard different things about different replica manufacturers, and some of the names they give for their are some of the same ones that VIS uses in their manufacturing.

Razzi does not paint the body kits, read the details. They paint the wing and they offer to hook you up with dealers in your area that prepaint the kit. I've wanted that kit for my 03 since I first got the car, I look at every few week a drool over it.

Ground Effects

RAZZI does not currently offer Ground Effects Packages "factory direct," painted to match.

However, if you are interested in purchasing pre-painted RAZZI product, RAZZI does have Authorized Distributors, nationwide, who do offer painted RAZZI(R) Ground Effects Packages. Please call RAZZI Customer Support at 800-235-6087 or e-mail RAZZI for the Authorized Distributor nearest to you.

On vehicles 3 - 5 years old and older, RAZZI suggests that the factory paint on your car/truck be "buffed out" to attain a better color match between your newly painted RAZZI(R) Ground Effects package and your older vehicle's paint.

ok so im blonde...but it says you CAN get pre painted kits!! so tongue tongue tongue just a little misunderstanding on my part...but on a different note...you have got excellent taste! goodjob wave thumbsup happywink

I think i'll stick with more common name kits i've heard of like West Wings or Kaminari. Thanks for all your help, guys. wave I'll be looking at your submissions.

Welcome celicagirlie! Congrats on the S2k antenna!

I just hope whatever kit I buy, it comes silver. I'd hate to pay up the pooper for a paintjob, much less do it myself. frown thumbsdown

TRD Mechanical has always been my favorite. I bought mine used and had it painted. Since it's OEM, no work had to be done for fittment, Urethane is durable and I was able to install it myself.
