yea if you look at my post i was talking about how the car used to look from memory, i didn't find the older pic until later and then edited it. I think you're right about the difference coming from tire sizes.

Version selects current kit is around $800, give or take depending on sales and who is selling it.

Legit OEM Kouki, NEW, will set you back around $2,200 without the front lip.

OEM lips are $500-700 used

Fiberglass lips are still only fucking available overseas and while they are $80-120 there, after shipping and fees your looking at $250-300 in your hands.

Used Kouki side skirts are normally $300, used bumpers, complete (minus lip) are around $400-500, used rears maybe $300.

TF is in the US but they still import all their kits aka they don't make anything in house besides fab work done at TF works

They haven't said any details on wether it is a full hot road replica or just the front

as far as fitment the sideskirts were a problem on most kits

Regarding Fitment

The front bumper on the existing kit sits kinda high when compared to the oem one. Many members on here wound up sagging the front a bit to get it to sit abit lower...

Those brota's make the car look cheap... LMGT4's at the very least would make it look like it has some class.

Either way, great idea, poor execution. Just needs a few things changed and it would be "fine the way it is."

We need a super aggressive lip. Why screw with a full FG bumper when the OEM one is so damn cheap new.

I am not advocating a FG kit or TF I'm just informing those who have questions... for myself I had full OEM aero on my S13

a more aggressive lip can be ordered from Hot Road and imported with Jesse Streeter for a nominal fee...

various aggressive lips pop up on yahoo auctions also

I know, its just frustrating paying +$200 over the price of a FG lip that is not going to last a year. Search ebay, plenty of poly knock off Nismo and Type-R lips for about $70, someone is making and dumping them in the US, why can't we get the most popular 240sx lip like that as well?

That's my beef.

Because it is easier to buy a lip for an existing car / market.

But you all are expecting some knockoff company to make products for a bumper that was never sold / popular in the states.

Not enough market. Just because 20 people on zilvia cry about how there is a huge demand for it, in reality there isn't.

Especially in a land where xxr's and paint jobs that came out of an aerosol can rule king.

Wrong.

Silvia bumper is.

Even if we went with your comparison, the numbers don't match.

Why make a lip and all that jazz for a limited market when you can make lips for existing markets?

Why do you think in japan there are companies that make knockoff lips for the kouki bumper?

Maybe if kouki bumper swaps were as popular as ITR fronts then you might have something. But for now everyone is asking companies to make a lip towards a limited market which will yield no real profit.

I mean Johnny offered to get a lip thing going and near everyone backed out.
