Don't think I've seen this kit before!

The side skirts look like poo in photos #12 & #13, but I think they're actually different ones than the ones on the first car.

I'm definitely liking the front and rear bars and if it comes with that mesh grille too that's pretty great.

Ive only ever seen that US gs300 kit on one car here in Sa and it was jacked up that high just so it could clear the ground and even with 18's the car looked ridiculous like a jacked up 4wd. The wheel guard spacing looked retarded.

In general (loosely) body kits and just a PIA the rear and side skirts usually are not that bad but its the oversized front bars that end up looking like shit after ya first speed hump and thats at stock height.


In saying that I've seen veilside kits work well and few others but not a lot of kits work without either major scraping or needing jacked up to retarded heights

Pretty much this ^^

Big kits are great, and look hot, but only if you either never move the car, or have some way of lifting it up to clear the ground when you need to move it. Too many people get a kit on a car and don't do the necessary other things to make it work properly.. so they either drive it around scraping on the ground messing up the kit, or lift it up like a tractor. Both look nasty.

By 'other things' I mean: height-adjustable suspension (of whatever kind), suspension arms work to keep it functioning, guard work to match your kit, and oversize wheels/tyres to fill the guards properly.

It's expensive, but if you're gonna do a big kit properly, there's not much else you can do.
