aftermarket, wait for the 4 door kaminari kit to come out, itll look sick man. Oem looks great the fitment is good but i would go with an aftermarket.

I would like to put a OEM kit on my civic but it's just toooo expensive for the pieces! For the money you might as well get an aftermarket kit. My dealer here doesn't even have the OEM pieces as a kit actually. The front and back lip skirts are like $340 each!

aftermarket kits have a much more agressive look compared to oem, but oem looks really clean

mullinad is on a distinguished road
getting the OEM kit through the dealer is REDICULOUS... try handaaccessories.com, or another other honda site online... the prices are about HALF what the the dealers charge...

Ditto.

Personally, I would go with an aftermarket kit.

i think oem kits are clean even though they're not too flashy.. aftermarket kits are the bomb when they first come out, but then get played out when they get old. it might seem that the oem is getting played out right now, but at least it will keep its clean form no matter how old the car gets and how trends change [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-cool.gif[/IMG]
