it all depends on what you are looking for! are you going for show? if so get an R34 or the Bomex. if you want a clean, sophisticated look, i would go with the Buddy Club 2 kit. i am partial to that one though, it has always been my favorite. if you are doing it just as a daily driver...i would go with a lip kit...don't add more weight to an already 'heavy' car, lol

i have the bomex knockoff kit...and unless you can find it in urethane ( i can't), i would advise against it. my car is lowered on S-techs and 17s...and for one i scrape everywhere...so it should be no suprise that i've cracked the front 3 times in 2 years...damn steep-azz driveways and potholes...i would go with a lip kit on your DD, and since you have an 01-03, the kaminari is sounding even better....

btw, i just ordered the FIRST Kaminari lip kit for the 04-05 coupes ...should be here tomorrow...after 4 months of setbacks ...damn thing should have been installed and painted by now....

thanks guys for all ur feedback, i'm leaning more towards the kaminari lip kit, but its pretty expensive around $800 and painting it cost like $500. but it seems really good quality. how much do u think i should lower my car with the kit on?

None. Make your car GO fast rather then try to make it LOOK fast.

yeah i know that, but i wanted a kit so it'd match my spoiler. lowering it and new rims. cuz just having a spoiler doesnt look right w.o a kit. and i could take it off but i like it. i'm gonna do performance parts but after i get a kit and some rims.

Ha ha, funny this thread showed up. I actually just came back from the shop and ordered the kaminari lip kit. Everything cost me $1100 including shipping. ( I live in the middle of the freakin' Pacific Ocean so shipping cost is a bitc#!!....) It'll take about a month to get here. Personally, I think it's worth it. good quality and fitment is guaranteed. With lowering your car, I would say 1.75 inch to 2.25 inch should be good.

S-techs dont drop the car that low, you just have to be more careful when you drive. Most kits on 17's with tein springs are roughly the same hight (R34 with 17's and S-techs). Just dont go up steep driveways and drive slower so you can avoid pothole, its as simple as that. Ive had my fiberglass kit on for 2 years and no cracks yet
