ima tell u the full story with this kit, if u want a strickly show car that is not driven than this is the kit for u , i already had this kit it is full fiberglass and is way too low to be driven everyday ill admit that i did get a rediculous amount of compliments but it was too low i couldnt jack up the car if i got a flat it couldnt go on a regular lift say if the car needed to get serviced at toyota therfore i didnt get an oil change until it was too late resulting in a blown engine so yea m advice stay away from this kit as hot as it looks it aint worth all the trouble, sory about the length of this statement

epidemic- i know you said that kit is too low a couple times on the boards, but i have never seen a pic of your car with it

i am not saying you are lying or anything- i believe you, but how low is too low? I am super low right now and while a big pain in the ass around these shitty roads- i get by, you got some pics of clearance

Never been a fan of the kit myself. Too complicated.

But I do know that We carry it. PM me if you are really interested in it. I'll get you a quote.

what's the point in having a kit like that if you are too scared & have to be too careful for fear of f----ing it up just going to get gas in the car :hammer:

i'm just not a fan of the huge body kits like that myself...seems most are more trouble than they are worth unless you are strictly a show car only.

i guess i enjoy using my car too much, driving spiritedly on an auto-x course to want to worry with some expensive body kit like that...but that's just me & my .02 opinions :)

Is it low on stock rims/tires and stock ride height? or lowered? I was thinkin of gettin 18" rims with 40 profile....and also lowering AND gettin that kit, i guess thats too low......but i would be very very carefull

my stock tires are: 195/60/16
i am going to get 225/40/18

using a tire calculator (http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html) it says that the new tire+rim dimeter will only be 0.1 inches smaller, so the car will basically be about at the same height.....but I aslo was thinkin of lowering it 1.5 all around....plus the kit.

It does look pretty low, I know that witih my kit I have scraped most of the paint off the bottom of the front and i have the black widow front. I want the evo 4 kit also but I have experience of driving really slammed cars, If you do get it i say drive around with it primered for a little bit to get used to it so you dont spend your money getting it re painted like me. but the evo kit is one of the better looking kits to me:thumbup:

The company that makes this kit is a shop out in SoCal called JT Autostyle. I've head that the kits aren't in the best of quality but then i've also seen them on my friends cars and they didn't seem too bad. Might need a body shop to touch them up a bit. They also hang very low in the front and back and if you allready have your car lowered this could create a problem. Anywho, here's the link to the website ( http://www.jtautostyle.com/splash.html )

Gettin the body kit painted and re-painted is no problem to me, my dad is a self-employed car touch up guy / car painter, so thats not problem at all, just afraid of it cracking.....if i ever hit anything, but im gonna be very careful, i drove a lowerd mustang with a front lip before, and that was only an inch off the ground
