Not a big fan of the front bumper, but car looks pretty good. A drop would be nice.

Re: not an EM2 but my DC5...

definately either lower the car or take that sticker off.

secondly, i'm not a fan of body kits and yours does not look any better.

take off the kit, put on a lip kit (stock please), get some nice rims and lower the car.

Re: not an EM2 but my DC5...

first, double post ftl ^^. second, its not really all that practical to lower my car around where i live (sticker was on when i bought the car). anyways, i do plan to eventually sell the kit and get a OEM lip kit, but this is how it sits now.

havent decided on the blackouts yet...i know obv itd be more jdm, but i like them the way they are too...im taking this kit off for the winter, hopefully selling it, and saving up money, and getting a mugen replica kit in the spring. ive been thinking about it and a drop isnt really a smart thing in my area cause the streets arent that great...but i may reconsider...and im painting the stockies white when i get my 19s on...but money is also another setback haha. mcdonalds wages dont help too much

Re: not an EM2 but my DC5...

I would make your ride better by putting your stock bumpers back on, and getting a battery tie and fuse box cover that werent painted. I'd also cut off all the decorative hose housing in your engine bay... To do it right, I'd fork the money out for an OEM lip and drop it, then wheels.

Oh, come on!! That thing looks like a monster truck. I have had some cars on low race suspension, on the worst roads ever. Buy a good race suspension (tein, Zeal, etc.) and the roads won't matter one bit.
