I believe it sits at about stock height, maybe a little lower.

I don't think the octane kit is low at all. Even if you look at the front lip, it angles upwards.

sometimes people advertise Octane as a FULL KIT...
What that means is, they will pick your sides and rear for you (you have no choice in the matter)
OR - What most often happens, is they will send you the Octane front with Buddyclub sides and rear...

eitherway - Octane is still only a front bumper...

Octane was styled after Nissan's Skyline GTR R34 front

Haha, you're rite, I checked the site again and it gave me 2 options. Either BuddyClub side and rear or Blitz side and rear.

Which one hangs lower? Answer this question for me and I'm goin to be buying the Octane!

I wouldn't get either of those sides and rear...they both sit too low for the Octane Front. I would go w/ the R2 sides, they look NICE w/ the front. Rear could be anything really. PM me, I may sell my bumper...atleast you know the fit will be perfect smile

Haha, it's be the perfect color too!
I'm pretty sure I'm going for the Blitz side and rear...I think everything is too low compared to the Octane anyways so it's not gonna make a difference. R2 side I'm gonna hafta order it else where b/c the guy i'm getting it from haven't started carrying the product yet. And rite now, they have a sale on Octane Full with BC or Blitz side and rear for $425! That's an awesome deal! I've always loved Octane, BC, and Blitz. Now I can have 2 of them on my car so it's gonna be great!
