    Question about bodykits

    This will be the first car where I am going to have a bodykit fitted, so I just want to make sure of one thing before I go and buy the last piece.

    I have a rear bumper already, but the front bumper I want to get is not part of the same kit.

    My question is, once they are fitted, would they look weird?? this I mean, would the car look level from side view? I dont particular want the front looking lower to the ground than the back or vice versa.

    Or, are all MK4 bumpers designed to be all the same size? hope this explantion make some sort of sense hehe

    Cheers

    mixing and matching can look well when done right but you need to do your research as some kits will look shit together. Some are a lot lower than others.

    The only way is to look at what your choosing on other cars and decide yourself if will look okay.

    It should be fine though
    What are you choosing ?

    At the moment, I have the whole WRC kit, apart from the front bumper. I know I should go and buy the whole WRC kit, but I also like the streetline front bumper at regals (link posted in the cool or not cool post)

    BTW I did not know the side skirts in those pics were rieger

    I like the wheels on that astra. Anyone know what they are?

    I have a question as well. The above rear bumper, Rieger im assuming...what is the difference between it just being fitted, and it being 'flushed'??? Any pics???

    Ricthie, the Rieger rear fits into the swage line of the rear bumper.
    To smooth it you'd have to fill it in, which would be prone to cracking.
    It would also look odd IMO.
