Possible Body Kit

When I get to the "show" stage of my car I want to put this kit on it. From seeing other posts I'll prolly get flamed for wanting this, but whatever, it's my car. Just want some other opinions. I'll be getting the same wing that's in the pictures as well.

You said flame on, sorry dude but that kit is horrendous. Like said above, it's your car, so pick your poison.

Eclipse tuners are a strange sort. They don't like talking about wings or color-matching side skirts and interiors. Eclipse tuners are performance-obsessed sleeper fanatics who dream only about downpipes, exhaust gases, and wastegates. Their cars aren't pretty, but have the ability to spank you silly on the highway.

The whole kit looks like it came out of the rear end of an angry bull dog.

it is a just slightly better looking kit than the blitz... in otherwords... not sexy at all. (but at least i was able to hold down my dinner when looking at it).

and this is what i specifically don't like about it:
1.the stupid... vent things in the rear.
2.the random swoopy-not looks like it goes to a different car front end. (with a dash of "oh yeah... we need a place for turn signals.. ehh that is good enough.")
3. the skirts.. WTF, why does it need giant edges sticking out? is this from madmax?

the wing is nice though.

It is kind of oddly angular for such a curvy car. I think I just like the kit, and can't see that it doesn't fit the car. Which is why i asked.

It's your car. However, if you do go through with this. My bet is you'll look back on it later and smack yourself in the forehead like on those V8 commercials..

I think it is very ugly. Lines doesn't flow with the shape of the car at all.

I think this hood would go with the second kit.

My third choice would be this. If this gets flamed too... guess my taste is just different. I missed this one before, I just noticed it.

Razzi Razzi Body Kit - 571-100-H

I know a lot of people on here like the shine kit and another one I forgot, but they just don't look much different from stock to me.

Theres a reason most people like the close to stock look. In general, those two lip kits (the ss and ww) are chosen because they help compliment the natural body lines rather than change them. I don't see why you're so set on a full body kit that will "uglify" the car IMO.

The second one's front end isnt bad, the rest is crap. The last one is the least horrid of the bunch. It's not my cup of tea, but if I ABSOLUTELY had to choose from those three. Thats the one I'd land on.

razzi is not bad.. but unless you want to do a dual exhast too, it looks stupid. 2 holes means you need 2 tailpipes.

I had the same thought. I don't really like the skirts on the razzi, if it wasn't expensive as hell I'd mix and match it. Any feedback on the hood I posted?

It doesn't look bad. I believe the sideskirts are what MOJO had on his white 3g. I just am not a fan of the front end for some reason (the way it comes up in the middle) The rear end actually would look good, but like you said, needs dual exhaust or it will look

I'll look for mojo's car with them on it. The dual exhaust problem is demonstrated in the second kit I posted. Only problem I see with going dual is back pressure issues (I don't know much about this please correct me if I'm wrong). I just know of people who've put something stupid-big like 3 1/2" pipe on a bone-stock engine and lost performance...

The dual exhaust problem is also on the Razzi kit, which is the 3rd one.

It's going to cost you a pretty penny to get this done with the cost of the kit itself, plus fitting, plus paint. You should be able to afford to get a proper dual exhaust setup done if you're able to afford the body work.

What I meant was, the second kit actually shows two holes with only one pipe.
I'm running into some personal preference issues with the paint though. I really am liking the white, I'm usually all about blacked out cars, but I think white/blue would fit the car well. Not usually a fan of blue either. I have a painter who's a personal friend of my father, so I can get paint done relatively cheap. And I can also do the install myself which saves me money as well. If I go with the white/blue theme, I'll have black rims and CF hood, and if I could find CF fenders and doors I'd do that too. Put the car on a diet. Don't think it's really a good idea though for safety reasons...

Checked out Mojo's car. I like his exterior, the skirts don't look bad. I think I'll end up going razzi. I also liked the black on top and white on bottom he did. Don't want to steal his set up though so I'll prolly just keep it all white. Interior trim and accents going to be blue, along with the calipers (hopefully on the rear as well if I can do the rear disc swap) and engine bay accents.

Carbon Fiber doors? Good luck there. Carbon fiber wouldn't be any less safe I would think, its relatively tough stuff. As for fitting/installing yourself, I've heard of members attempting, and running into issues where modifications were needed. So I wouldn't get too far ahead of yourself just yet..

Back on topic. Razzi kit wins my vote. Though you'll need supporting mods such as a drop and dual exhaust to pull it off. GL with the project.

Mojo's car has the razzi rear and he dodged the dual exhaust problem by painting the exhaust area black.

04MOJOGT 2007 Updates So far....

Just scroll down a bit and you'll see it in a pic from the back. I think I'll just do that. As far as the install, there's a customs shop near me that I know the owner and I'll be starting learning from him in february when business picks back up. Then once I know more and am more helpful I'll be working for him. The exterior work won't be happening for a while (I'm thinking next years tax returns). In the mean time I'm doing CAI and interior work. Then wheels/tires. Then drop. Then body kit. And if I can get rear disc swap in there somewhere that too.

Razzi is the only choice out of all of those that doesn't look like shit. I say keep the car oem, or as close as possible. And use the search button and stickies.... these kits have been discussed thousands of times.

By doing the work yourself for "cheap" what exactly do you consider "cheap." I know a few guys who decided to do the fitment work themselves and it cost them over $1000 just to do it themselves. That's how bad a lot of these full kits actually fit. If you consider nearly $2000 to properly fit an ugly bodykit cheap than go for it. That $2000 also doesn't include the cost of paint.

You plan on an awful bodykit that's painted either white or blue with CF fenders? That will look awful, seriously you WILL regret it. I don't think they make CF doors for the 3g and if they do expect to be paying out the ass for them. That's not going to be cheap at all.

The members here aren't trying to tear down your ideas, but like said we go with the kits that we do because it has been proven over the past 10 years that the SS and WW lip kits look the best on our car. If you think we're being harsh check out member 00GTisme's members ride thread. He started off putting random junk on his car and got flamed for it, not long after he had the stuff on the car guess what he was doing, he was taking the suggestions the members gave him originally and has gotten a lot of praise recently for how his car works. In the long run he spent more money and time putting parts on his car that looks like shit just to change them out for what was originally suggested.

Eclipse tuners are a strange sort. They don't like talking about wings or color-matching side skirts and interiors. Eclipse tuners are performance-obsessed sleeper fanatics who dream only about downpipes, exhaust gases, and wastegates. Their cars aren't pretty, but have the ability to spank you silly on the highway.

I just saw 3G-XXX's car with that first kit I put up and I hated it. WW kit is ok... If I go with one of the two suggested it'd be that one. I didn't think fitment would be any kind of huge deal... What's the problem with putting a kit in? Wouldn't you just have to drill some holes and mount the damn thing?

it is now obvious you have never tried to install a kit.

xOMidEclipse : who are you?
I have the BMX style body kit from VFiber and i was very unhappy with the quality of the front bumper but the side skirts and rear can go with any front bumper. I actually just ordered a Vader style front bumper from Hybrid Aero. The WinComplete Body Kit looks really nice but i would order from Andysautosport for all my body kit needs.

I didn't check, but I assume the kit's you are looking at are made out of fiberglass. In most cases you will find that you need to add fiberglass to a lot of areas to make it line up right. The fitment on these is generally awful. I don't think you understand that doing this kit yourself is putting you way in over your head. If you want it to look right (especially since this would be your first time) pay a professional the $2-3000 that it will cost to make the kit fit correctly.

Andy's is a hit or miss and lately has been a miss situation. Not exactly the best company to work with and most of their stuff requires modification to fit. I personally would suggest NOT buying from Andy's Auto Sport.

If I got CF fenders it would just be for the weight reduction, maybe something a little different from stock for styling if it doesn't look bad. They'd be painted white to match the rest of the car. The body kit would also be white. The only blue on the outside would be the calipers, and only CF showing would be the hood. Interior will be where the rest of the blue will be. Center console/dash accents and door panel accents as well. Change out the gauges and clock pod so they illuminate blue.

As for never doing a body kit, that's correct. I figured ordering a kit that "fits" the 3G means that it fits the 3G. My bad on an epic fail. I am a newbie to the car modification, I just know basic maintenance and a small amount of performance information. Looking to learn.

then don't get CF fenders. if you really NEED to shave those 20 pounds, get fiberglass.

Allright. I'm prolly not going to unless I decide to make the car into an all out race car, but from what it's looking like, that'd take a shit ton of money. So I may just make this car all show and daily driver and get another car later for a performance sleeper. I really don't know what I want out of this car or what I'm wanting to put into it yet.

well, you have a 4cyl.. so performance is NOT out of the questions... just not cheap.
(turbo)

or you can just give it love, keep it mild, and have a comfortable car that looks good.

If I had some idea of what it would cost me to get it rollin quick!!! I could weigh my options better. There's a decent race scene where I'm at. My buddy brought home 3.5G the other night after losing $700. I could definitely pay for it if I got it going. Race low end at first to pay for FI. Then go all out. Boring the engine plus an entire rebuild and tuning and going FI I'd think would run something like 6-8G's. I don't really know though... All the turbo builds I've seen on here don't have how much it cost em. If I lived near Greg I would just ask the guy what's up.

Adds horsepower of course. The body kit alone should gain him like 10-12g's then he can buy that dream honda he's always wanted.

LOLOL.... Thanks guys... figured I'd get at least 40hp off that body kit, then throw on a gt badge or two, another 10-15hp, 5" exhaust tip that sounds like a weedeater then i'd be running 8 sec 1/4mi. for sure. I am 18, and I am new to all this so bear with me and my newbie errors.

Other than pricing did I mess anything up? Other than being stupid and talking about racing...

I'm running into some personal preference issues with the paint though. I really am liking the white, I'm usually all about blacked out cars, but I think white/blue would fit the car well. Not usually a fan of blue either. I have a painter who's a personal friend of my father, so I can get paint done relatively cheap. And I can also do the install myself which saves me money as well. If I go with the white/blue theme, I'll have black rims and CF hood, and if I could find CF fenders and doors I'd do that too. Put the car on a diet. Don't think it's really a good idea though for safety reasons...
personally I would say you are running with way too many color ideas here. How are you gonna do white and blue on the paint? And please don't say I'm gonna paint the bodykit one color and the car another. I would recommend the WW and SS kit just like everyone else is saying. The 3G looks AMAZING when it is built to be clean and not 2Fast & Bi-Curious.

The paint will be white. Just white. Only blue on the outside will be calipers. Maybe underglow, doubt it though. The rest of the blue will be inside.

So do you have soy sauce stations around your area?

Eclipse tuners are a strange sort. They don't like talking about wings or color-matching side skirts and interiors. Eclipse tuners are performance-obsessed sleeper fanatics who dream only about downpipes, exhaust gases, and wastegates. Their cars aren't pretty, but have the ability to spank you silly on the highway.

What's the problem with putting a kit in? Wouldn't you just have to drill some holes and mount the damn thing?
To each their own... I love the way mine turned out! FTW!!!!

No offense meant, and I hope none was taken, but I like the kit, I just don't think the front fits the car's styling. It's too pointy when the rest of the car is curvy. Too sharp or something... idk.

As for the soy sauce comment. What's "rice" about my plan, other than the underglow, which as I said wasn't likely to happen.

My buddy brought home 3.5G the other night after losing $700. I could definitely pay for it if I got it going. Race low end at first to pay for FI. Then go all out. Boring the engine plus an entire rebuild and tuning and going FI I'd think would run something like 6-8G's. I don't really know though... All the turbo builds I've seen on here don't have how much it cost em. If I lived near Greg I would just ask the guy what's up.
This philosophy makes your car rice.

The kit makes the car rice as well as the underglow.
