ordered my body kit today

After owning the Wings West kit and not being happy with it. Then buying the Tsunami front bumper and deciding I didn't like it. I made the decision to go with the OEM kit. I like it because it looks clean and fits the car well. I ordered it through my honda dealership. I paid $754 out the door. I think that was a pretty good deal but I dont know. It will be here on Jan. 10th. The best thing about the factory kit is that it comes painted so I know the Inca Pearls will match.

Greg,
I totally support your decision going with the oem kit.... i was also looking at the kits that were out there and everyone of them didn't look that nice because they looked too extreme.... i also ordered the oem kit... clean looking and very nice fits perfectly and also comes with a warranty so if stuff happens you can always expect great customer service.... what else do you have or planning to get on your car...

I wasn't happy with the way the side skirts fit. I didn't like the way the kit had the wings that sticks out behind and in front of the front wheel. It was a o.k. kit but I just wasn't happy with it.

It has 3m tape all along the top side were it mounts to the car and you have to screw in the fender wells to mount them there. it also has a place in the middle of the side skirts and in the middle of the rear peice to screw up into the bottom of the car.

I think the OEM kits look tight!! I'm going to get one as soon as I get my wheels paid off. The best thing is that they already come painted, no hassles finding someone to paint them or matching the colors![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

I think the OEM will look good on any color because the kit fits the style of our cars so well.

At the Honda dealer where I got my car they actually have a 2002 Civic EX Coupe on their floor with the Wings West kit on it. I agree, it is very extreme, and I am still undeceided if I would consider buying it or not. It looks sweet on this Civic, its silver, and the factory siver rims, black interior with aftermarket seats embroidered with "Honda". Maybe my car still is to stock to take on such an extreme body kit right now. Springs, camber kit, wheels, then a body kit in that order for me!

quit it greg! You keep buying the same stuff That i bought/am buying[IMG]i/expressions/moon.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]j/k. I am about to order the oem kit myself. should have it in a couple weeks. I'm not a huge fan of some of the other kits either. I think the oem accentuates the natural curves of the car instead of changig it and that is really the look i am going for. smooth and sleek. i feel thats what the inca is meant to be

just the old pics in my members rides. I only said that because i just saw your new rims today and they are gunmetal. then you said you were getting the body kit. Really, other than that, our engine bays are very similar. Its all good though. Great minds think alike[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif[/IMG]

Great minds do think alike! Were you at Nopi last year? When I was leaving on Sunday I saw a Inca with gunmetal Verdicts on it. If you weren't there you need to go this year.
