I really like it, would be great on a SRT-4 with a real intercooler.

true that and if he is going to go with that rear bumper then a dual setup exhaust would be nice i mean i dont know how many times ive seen a neon with that same cutout and the dude is running a single exhaust

i agree a dual is a must with this body kit but most of all what i love is the front bumper with some nice fogs in the roound cut out with hid in them would be sick to me!! or do u guys think yellow fogs would be better???

It's definitely not the worst looking kit, but an SRT bumper still looks better. The splitters cool, I don't know about the recess in the center but..its okay.

front looks pretty decent

sides are too tall. ugly

rear is just plain nasty. too square

I'd rather see that front with SRT or even R/T sides and an SRT rear bumper

If you have to ask if it's "rice"- it probably is.

I think it looks awesome dude. It IS fiberglass though I believe. This is one that I looked at when I was wanting to get one. I'd go with it- I think the rear bumper looks perfect- just make sure you get dual exhausts :)

note they've still got the side mouldings from SRT skirts on that car, so the skirts will look a bit different on your car.

its not rice if you do it right.

don't drive around for days, months or years on end with it just primered. Other wise those photos show some good quality work.

That's not bad at all :-k

The rear bumper looks to be modeled after a late model Mustang. A little too square for me, but overall not bad.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

no one has said anything about the caption... lip spoiler not include?!

if it sounds like jap... and looks like jap...

I'm kidding. I like that kit. I considered getting it for mine, but I don't trust fiberglass, nor do I think that there are holes in it already for the existing mounting locations. You'll probably have to drill and mount it yourself.

Everyone by now knows the definition of rice. Its all how the finished product turns out. Fit and fitament.

That is the only kit I am considering for my car, and frankly, for the most part anyway, I believe the term "rice" is more about the state of mind of the driver, and besides, if you like it, who cares, right? Good choice, its my fav of all the bodykits for my year :)

I had this kit for a while, sold it a few months ago. I ordered mine from Extreme Dimensions and was really not satisfied with the quality of the kit. It came damaged and the front bumper really didnt fit well. Your going to need/want the little cladding pieces off of an srt-4 for the bottoms of the doors as well. I only had the front on my car as it had been sitting and I had not gotten around to doing anything more that that with it. I recently seen it on the new owners car and it looked not bad

^^ yeah I'd go for it. I have looked a lot of kits and abandoned any desire for a kit (I don't feel like painting all the pieces) but if I got one, I'd probably get this one. ;)
