Default Body Kit....Yes or No?

Ok, i really want my car to stand out a little more, seen some new wings from Japan and other things for my Ej6, but then i came to this pic and brought me back to the 99.

Now i am not a big fan of body kits, but the longer i look at it the more i want it.
So i went to Feel's web site, they dont have on there.
So i sent then a email, and they sent one back....with a price.
$1,500 + shipping.

So right now im stuck, should i.....or not?
Let me know what you think.

I love everything about that kit except the front bumper. I mean, the more I look at the bumper the more it grows on me, but at the same time it really doesn't match the car well IMO.

*edit: What about the kit minus the front bumper... and instead of the front bumper, a BYS bumper? I mean, if you're going to be spending that much on a kit... not to mention you can find BYS replicas for ~$300.

That body kit is too intense for me lol. Way too flashy if you ask me. I don't hate all body kits, but huge skirts and bumpers look ridiculous, and wide body kits have to actually get flush with the body to have a chance at looking good. Only parts I like of body kits are usually front bumpers, but there I only like a large grill, and you have to stuff an intercooler behind it

I want the real deal.
I hear what you are saying with a cheaper kit, but just knowing that this kit will be made just for me, is really cool.
I mean they stoped making this kit, but if enough people ask they make X amount, and the owner of feels said that if i ok it, mine would be number 50.

Please don't. I think it looks terrible. It doesn't flow together at all. I hate kits in general, but I do think your car might be the rare instance that a kit could improve its look due to your hood. That front bumper is just awful. Save up and find a Mugen kit if you must.

I think it looks terrible. It ruins the lines of the car.....make NO attempt to flow with them. the only part i see that i can tolerate is the rear bumper, but just barely

I think your mind is already made up, dude.

If that kit tickles your pickle, go for it... I'm just saying the front bumper looks like something from star trek.

I think it does flow. the thought of wide kits is cool IMO and it might flow better with your hood(hood might flow better with it) but i agree with reaper maybe with a BYS bumper that front its too much. but i really do like the wide parts. maybe the vents not so much. but from the front i deff do. mayb e it plus some homemade DIY body work could be really nice. Im all for getting away from the trends.
