Also why is the boot smoothed and the plate put back in the same place? Kinda defeats the object of doing it?

Ill be honest the whole body kit thing may not be to all our tastes but fair play to the guy in sorting out that horrible mess that happened to his car.

Dude it looks much better in matt black, I like the colour of the wheels and the little details sets it apart from the majority of the JDM styled EG's.

The thing is buddyclub didn't make a kit for the Eg.
So the fact it's a rip off of the ek buddyclub kit means it's twice the fail

I like the BC kit, I always wanted one on my EK. Never seen it on the EG before. Not sure if it's a bit too angular for the EG? Still, not many around!

What's with the kit hating? Why get him to put OEM lips on and make it look like everyone else's EG? Come on guys, think outside of the box. Drop the fads and do your own thing! Wink Isn't that what car modification is about?

Less hating - more respect!

P.S: I liked it better in white, but matt black is still a good look!

kit = rice-chavy-old its totaly what TOA is not about, on some cars it works mainly the drift cars but the majority it doesnt, CLEAN AND SIMPLE is the way forward.

I always do my own thing.

same rear bumper as cindy (ezzas first eg), i can see it from both sides because for a chaps first jap car its a good go, bearing in mind he might not be used to the JDM scene, but at some point neither were any of us, everyone has to start somewhere and one day you never know this car might look like this:

About the tailgate...
Previous owner did it as he had the licence plate on the kit. But i thought it looked pony soi put it in its original piece as a temporary measure. I was planning to replace the tailgate and bonnet with carbon fibre parts but the vandalising lil c*** has slowed my progress quite dramatically.

About the bodykit...
Bought the car with it on. At the time i was cumming myself over the JDM eg civics I'd seen when I was out in the US. And thought the kit was a fail. But, (As the car was a mixture of blue, primer and black) after spraying the car white, and with the addition of the black and pink SSR wheels, I came round to the idea and thought, "Thats different. That works. I like this. Oooo she likes this....she has awesome knockers..."
As you can probably tell from my writing; I'm not a chav. As Attleys pic show's bodykit's on an eg aren't an instant fail. After going to a few shows and saw many eg's looking the same; I decided to expierment with two different syles, JDM and the old fashioned bodykit style, as I worked on changing it to a more JDM orientated car. The wheels were orignally team dynamics, and the suspension was...standard. <fail. Obviously with all projects, things take time, and you've gotta start from somewhere right?
I like to get the most use out of something before I replace it. And as long as my bodykit is still in good condition it will remain on the car. When its looking tatty and battered, it will be replaced with carbon fibre OEM kit. When my engine goes bang, I'll stick a B16/B18/K20/H22 whatever comes along at the particular time. And when it begins to rust again, i'll probably spray it another colour.
On the whole though. I care little for what people think, and neither should anyone else. Otherwise whats the point in modifying the car's exterior at all? The chav down the end of my road has a what most would say is piss poor fiat brava but he works hard on it and he has some good little ideas. He's also a real top bloke. So rather than getting all harsh ("still looks a horrible mess" ) I'd suggest being a bit more constructive with critism and friendly to newbies or you'll scare decent people off; as on a forum things can be taken the wrong way. (a simple "i dont like bodykits, get rid of it, deck it some more and your sorted" would have been enough)

I think matt black always ruins cars sorry, i liked it white, You should of sprayed it matt green or something...

Im one for bodykits though, my old coupe had a kit and a pimpin spoiler on it, and i loved it...

As for the plate, i had a similar rear bumper, and i mounted it underneath the rear bumper with a light aswell, It was a rectangle plate though...
