I was thinking of mixing it up. I kinda like the JSP Rave side skirts. Not sure on the front and back that would match that skirt though.

yeah..i like kam a lot..but i don't know whats up w/thier sideskirts. they look too 'bubbly' and imo they don't flow with the car well at all. the celica is cut...not bubbly.

Go BRS if you are willing to spend a bit of time on fitting. Nice clean look and not too many out there. Ill have pics of mine up in a few days.

I'm kinda feeling the front and side skirts of carcept, not diggin the back though.

I like the side skirts where the piece doesn't come past up and cover the car. Side skirts that don't are like the kaminari and JSP Rave. TRD covers the car near the rear wheel well.

JSP can be purchased from Pepboys... Genuine BRS got high ranking on my fitment tests! R2 is only available as replica - Genuine fits perfectly if you can get your hands on one of them... (BTW, R2 Designer/Mike is BRS/Mike grin)

Bomex fitment is PERFECT and has a very subtle clean look to it thumbsup

I'm thinking JSP side skirts, R2 front Bumper.

But I can't decide on the rear bumper.

Any suggestions that would go along with the front and sides?

As I'm told by the designer of the R2 kit, and now you are hearing it second-hand... The mold for the original R2 doesn't exist anymore. It was left in a garage about 2 years ago and got royally warped by weather. If you want to buy a replica of this, call and speak with 4 different shops, ASK THE REP about the quality/fitment of the bumper and listen to exactly what they say. Hopefully they will have some experience or have heard feedback about what they sell and can give you more than the general "all kits may need modification for installation" speech... have the rep you are on the phone with, ask someone else in their office if they know more details... then when you call the second shop, as them the same questions and also if they know anything about shop 1... and do this procedure for shop 2, shop 3 and shop 4... this might also get you a better price on a better fitting kit and will learn more about who to buy from next time. Also ask about their fitment garentee, if any rice

sorry for the huge 'run-on' above, but its some good information that everyone should use when purchasing a bodykit... in most cases, the seller will tell you the problem they might have heard regarding fitment of the pieces that you want - they would rather tell you upfront than have to deal with returns from an uphappy customer wink

I think that would look clean on a white celi but with white I perfer an aggressive look cause white shows kits more...just my opinion tho thumbsup

I agree that the white shows more, that's why I chose white for the celi because I thought white showed all the curves and shape of the car the best.

But, I pondered this for two years and I'm still on

'so fresh so clean clean' look

thanks Isaac for the info thumbsup
