Sry but not to my liking, I'm not a big fan of body kits and chrome. The drop looks good though.

I like everything but the rims as well.

1) The rims look to small on a car with a kit like that. You need bigger rims. It looks wierd with small rims.

2) I'm not a fan of chrome, but if you are, stick with it.

you know what has been said...bigger rims are a must and maybe a little more color? also, not sure what colors go well with that tan/beige, but chrome is def not it. good start though

thats a lip foo . wngman your ish is nice. very clean. not ricy at all. and for susuking, loose the chrome lol. i know everyone has been saying it but the only chrome that should be on your rims is the lip lol. car looks good other then that just not feelin the color to much. you can get dark bronze rims to match it or paint it and do whatev. or just go with black with polished lip with that paint. black with the polished lip matches anything. is that a xenon rear lip? and are the side skirts to? if it is i have both! i havent seen any one else with my set up for body styling yet. i have xenon front bumper not lip though. and rear lip and sides from xenon. cant wait to see what my kit looks like painted lol. its grey primer right now until i get the money cause i just ordered rims.

i think some 17" black rims with a polished lip would look hot on there, it will also compliment the black housings.

just wondering where did you get the chrome si wheels?

Thanks sleepyriceboi, i was wondering when someone gona say anything about my carputer hahah .. the carputer is just under my seat, but it's extremely compact. i fit it into a amp casing and hope ppl would think its just a cheap amp so that they won't break in my car.

Btw CenZ i got those rims from a member here when i bent my old rims.

djrabbi, thanks for the compliments on the rims, i am just using them till next summer when i can afford another set of wheels.

And yes casper087, the rear is xenon, but the sides and front are kaminari. will get more pic today after class. I'm thinking of shaving off the sides of the Xenon rear to get rid of the slots at the sides, and i've mod the rear a little to make it look more subtle.

yea you could just put bondo in them slits probably and get it re painted. anyone know of a good place to go to to get kits painted at a good price and a nice job? susuking also you should tint your windows and get some black rims with a chrome lip. that would look nice. maybe like 20% or even 35% just to get the look going. it sets it off real nice.

sleepyriceboi, i built that carputer. i got all the info i ever needed from http://www.mp3car.com/forum
just be sure u'll be patient to read thru pages and pages of info. i've researched it for half a year before i actually start to do it. or else the ppl there aren't so kind to answering silly questions. But if u r staying around in LA, i'll be glad to help you out with your own set up.

oh, btw, that set up cost me approx. 900 bucks or less. much cheaper than any of those dvd/navigations that is reputable. and it has everything and more to offer. i'm still working out to set up a 5.1 sound system in there. the motherboard i have in there has everything built in.

but the downside is the need to wait for at least 15 sec for the music to start playing. compare to the instant on that other in car system.

btw, i duno where would be a good place to paint. Marco maybe? i duno, i paint them myself, i got a compressor and all that you need in my garage courtesy of my grandfather. i use his equipments. about the tint, yeah, i'll do it soon. there is just so many things to do to the car. it's an addiction.

btw, i just got the car half a year ago, so, yeah, my engine light is on,(prob coz the crack header), my srs is on(i think the sensor is off), then my glass is cracked due to a rock last week, and i need a tint and rims. that's basically what i need to do all year till summer. ahhaahhahaha
