body kit question

Looking to buy a body kit for a 92 acura integra. My first one so not really sure what to look for. Don't want one of the glue on kits. Any suggestions or links would be appreciated.

He asked a direct question and that's the best you could come up with ....

I don't know anything about Honda bodykits, but if that's what you want to do with your car ... then go for it. I would tend to agree with these other guys that my PREFERENCE would be for performance mods first, but if your priorities are different, then good luck with the bodykit search

as much as i hate bodykits... umm.. i would most probably suggest someone like BOMEX would be one of the best choice's to make with Acura kits. Also, i've heard that Street Fighter kits are good too, fairly ricer though.

PERSONALLY, i hate bodykits and would never get one.

I personally think that the '92 era Integra is the best looking Integra (neck-and-neck with the JDM ITR) and I could in no way condone defacing one with a bodykit.... bad idea ... in my opinion.

Why try to make it look fast when you can actually make it fast is what I say.

Why not make it look better to him, when it's already fast enough to get tickets in every state and country?

Here's a nice, subtle one that would look very good on that car:



http://www.autodirectsave.com/bodykits/integr9293.htm


Kaminari products are high quality, and have been for a couple decades.

Erebuni has a nice looking fromt air dam that would go with the Kaminari side skirts and rear apron. Again, fairly subtle in comparison to the Combat kits. But Erebuni products can tend to be hit or miss for quality, and often take quite a bit of finsih work to look good. But it's only $175...

no, because they deface the beauty of a stock car, not because of the mass produced compromises by committee are perfection in steel.

id get rims instead of bodykit. if you have a bodykit with stock rims, it'll look uglier. if you get rims with stock bumpers, itll look nicer. and for those 92 years integra's, i'd prefer stock look better then with bodykits.
