Here are my pictures:

Here is a warning about the Spoilers ETC kit:

I am quite disappointed with the quality of the kit. Each piece had a lot of imperfections. The way the fiberglass pieces were made, air pockets occurred. These had to be sanded out and refinished. The bumper had little ridges and valleys, which also had to be sanded out and filled in. Luckily the body shop did not charge me any more than what they quoted, but it took over a week. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me!

fitting

the kit fit very well, except the side skirts. The front bumper has little gap (no more than a stock bumper) between the headlights and the bumper, and the hood and the bumper. The sideskirts fit OK. There is a gap on the part that comes up rear or the door. It isn't too visable because that's where the door closes, but you can fit a pencil in it. The rear pieces fit very well.

Would you post some close-up pics too? Some of the doorjams with the door opened and closed as well as the rear quarter panel skirts?

Thanks

very easy

the mono-wiper is extremely easy to do.

Just take the passenger wiper off completely (you pop the little black plastic circle out, which will expose a nut, just use a socket to take the nut off, then just pull the entire arm off--it's easiest to get off if you put the wiper in the upright position away from the glass)

The next step is to take off the driver's side wiper the same way you took the passenger side off. Once you take it off, put it back on where you want it to stop. It has little teeth, so you can put it back on however you want it. Just make sure you put it far enough over the passenger side so it doesn't go down and scratch your hood.

I reccomend a 20" dual blade wiper.. and some spray paint the color of your car! If you have any more questions, let me know!

$ $ $ $ $

Well it was $650 for the kit, ($550 plus $100 for shipping) and then installation and paint was just over $1000.00. This also included the installation of the spoiler, and refinishing of my trunk deck lid (it had been keyed pretty deep).

lowering

Hey rstylemx6 thanks for clearing up AnDrEw1631's post :) I am working on some sort of grill so you can't see the radiator.. if anyone has any ideas let me know!

You're right kingnajar, it does need some bigger, better looking rims.. but I haven't found a tree that grows money yet :) I am sure I will get some rims soon. As far as lowering goes.. I don't think I can--the front bumper is close enough to the ground as it is.. I can't even pull into most driveways!!! :)

don't worry about pulling into people's driveways... park on the street. if you get the shyt, you have to deal with the downside. it won't look right unless you have bigger rims. i know that that shyt is expensive.. but *damn* you went and spent $1650 to get the kit on. evidently you're doing something right.

and you can get tokico, and ground control and big rims and it *makes* the car look a LOT lower without having to *actually* lower it that much.
