Would this look stupid?

I was thinking of putting on just the OEM side skirts, and NOT the the front and rear. Do you think it would look ghay? Reason being is that the front and rear doesn't really add much more bottom body per say, and look pretty much stock. I have considered other kits, but the look is too ricey.....er racey for me. I just want a clean look, and thought that the side skirts would fill-in well. Whadda think? [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

RedDragon333 will become famous soon enough
Personally if your gonna do that i would go all the way...the front and rear might not add a whole lot but if you bolt the OEM sides on and not the front and rear your mids are gonna be lower than the front and rear and you WILL be able to notice...you want clean das cool thats the way to go OEM but go all the way with it

thats me tho

a guy here has like a grand am, i THINK its a grand am, with just a lip on and nothin else and it looks retarded. The front is lower and the mid/back up higher just looks really dumb in my opinion. I think it would look awful from a sideview standpoint to see the front up mid low and rear up..... my .02

If you're talking about getting the kit from Honda, then you should get the front and side.. Just the side does look kinda tarded, and just the front looks kinda tarded, so both would compliment each other. As for the back, usually it's a waste of money. Not alot of good looking rear bumpers for 2k1 civics [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]. later

I think it would be kinda weird.
The sides don't really do anything by themselves. It's too plain.


<< ...so both would compliment each other >>
