out of all the times "drop it" has been left as advice, here, as it seems, it is most essential.

your car is decent, but it almost looks like it's lifted.

needs to be lowered and ditch the painted hubs bro. I would advise taking the lip and skirts off till you can paint em. Just a personal thing with me tho. It has potential but my opinion is the only time it should be black is if its Cf or the car is black.

those looks like Si rims not hubs.

I'd say just paint the kit silver to match ur car, plus, if u do not have the rear lip yet, take the sides off for now or something. like others said and will keep saying, drop it lyke itz hot. drop before kit buddy

i can understand modding on a budget and as long as you like it, doesnt matter what i think man. Keep it up. I honestly think if you want to stick with the black lip kit get some black gloss rims with maybe a silver lip to bring it out. Makes it seem more on purpose rather than a kit you bought from a black car

for that lip i think you should paint it black. if u had a smaller lip maybe you can pull it off... here im going for the black on silver look.


but if u like what your doing dont mind people...its just opinions. your car, your work

oh man those are some bad pictures. remember to set your white balance properly! i tried to fix them for you:











and just to add to what everyone else already said: that looks horrible. you should paint it to match the color of your car.

Might be your style, but it looks like you're just another ricer that can't afford to paint your kit. To be honest.

It NEEDS to match the car IMO you need a small lip to pull that look off and that kit looks 100x better one soild color but to each his own its your ride

Hey no hard feelings, everyone just has different tastes... And if it is painted NHBP, it seems its only painted that way cuz you bought it like that?

Anyways, at least paint the top half of the kit silver and leave the bottom black or something

definitely agree with a lot of the ppl on here...you should paint it to match your car...not really feeling the sides with that front lip...looks like it hangs lower than that front...anyway again everyone has their own tastes...and this is just my opinion...

looks like crap, almost like you're trying to make people think you have carbon fiber all over your ride but having that lip kit, and eventually putting a nhbp hood on there. i dont think it looks great at all. yes, you're trying to be "unique", but this isn't a good "unique"

i think the rims top it off though, not only did you ruin them, they look ricey as hell. get real rims.

an alternative to the "paint it ssm" most have been saying is maybe paint your ssm above the side lips to nhbp to the same height as your front lip. you probably made some bad choices trying to be original (which is okay) so now you probably have some work to do to clean it up. oh yea and drop it like itz hawt.
