Well, I would have to say it looks good because I have the same thing. I'm using the buddyclub sides as well.

What year civic do you have?? I love Buddy Club sides and front, haven't seen many pics of the rear. R34 front is good too though. Have fun and post up pics when it's done!!

imo, lip kits are a lot cleaner then bodykits. they're also a lot cheaper and the fitment is always perfect. but the r34 front looks pretty good though. and make sure that you dont get a rear bumper for a 4 door cuz it will NOT fit on a 2 door.

Body kits = too big, too ugly.
Get a lip kit. Spend the extra money cause it's worth it!!
And even if you decide to get a body kit, DO NOT GET FIBERGLASS!!

Well, the same can be said about lip kits. Too plain, too boring, too stock. It all depends on the owners preference. Lip kit fitment is not always perfect because I had purchased a type r lip kit when I first starting modding my car and the front lip didnt fit cuz it was too small. I dont see what the big problem is with fiberglass. I deal with horrible weather up in Canada and my fiberglass pieces are fine. I have even had someone bump me from behind and the bumper did not crack or anything. The only damage was 2 holes left from the persons license plate.

Patience with a body kit is a good idea. Imo you should buy a brand new urethane complete kit.

My fiberglass R34 is a pain in the ***... takes a minute or two to pull into my driveway. Go with urethane or lip kit.

I read that kaminari's are pretty good. However, they are expensive.
