Default RSX lip kit or body kit?

okay i am looking into buying a lip kit or a body kit. I am interested in the jmd type-r lip and the mugen lip. But they cost almost as much as a body kit. So should i rather just go get a body kit or stick with lip kit?

lip kits= sexy ;-)body kits= ricethere's a reason lip kits cost that much... its cause they look alot cleaner, especially on an RSX. I prefer the type-r front lip with the aspec sides and rear lip, but thats just my opinion. Mugen stuff is sexy as all get out, but super expensive for authentic parts. If you shop around a little more, there are replica kits that look almost identical but cost much less.By the way, I'm not suggesting going and buying some garbage ebay replica kit. There are some decent replicas out there. I mean, most honda guys these days are on budgets and can't afford to go spend thousands of dollars on authentic JDM parts. Yeah, they're worth it!! But I've seen replica mugen kits that look almost just as good as the real ones.

hands down. the lip kit.body kits are cheap and make your car look not sure about knock off lip kits, but reguardless lip kits are the wiser choice of the both.

lip kit... super clean. and respected... I'm not a fan of any body kit. Keep it JDM. Bought my full authentic factory painted lip kit from they sell used stuff, right from japanese models.

I realy dont know what either of those look like, but I would say depends on your car. My rsx is lowered and I couldnt imagine trying to throw a body kit on it. Pulling in and out of some parking lots and even my complex I worry about scraping, so I guess id go with the lip. Best of luck =)
