i dont really like the look of the "fins" at the sides up front. it doesnt look like it should stick out further than the middle of the bumper.

kit looks ok. get rid of the pinstripes and the chrome washer nozzles. and dont put that front on until you have some side skirts and a rear lip/bumper. having that on the front and nothing on the rest of the body is gonna look dumb, plus gonna cost more to install and paint it all separately.

I think that style kit only looks good on supras, eclipses, and this new blitz style is ok for civics. but i like it in general. just not on the 7th gens, only the 7.5 gens!

the bomex kit looks good on the 01-03s - not sure about the 04+. its prolly warped and is going to require lots and lots of fiberglass to get it to mold...good luck.

If its urethane (which I doubt) than you wouldnt really have to worry about flex since it would flex back. But if its fiberglass, good luck with that.

Before you spend money on paint, you should definately test fit that sucker.

urethane owns, i have a urethane tsunami and i do lots of highway driving, 5 days a week to be exact there and back, like an hour on the highway and man do bugs and debris suck ***. they will mess that front bumper up real quick. i got it painted a few monthes ago and its startign to not be perfect. i had dead buggies. oh well. its fine now tho. if it was fiberglass, i dunno if it would be ok now. i hate bug who hit it and just stick in the urethane haha.
