Default Is a body kit for a 1998 Acura Integra a bad idea?

I like the look of some body kits. I want to pimp out my ride a little, since it is my first car. Should I get a body kit? I live in New Jersey and the terrain is a bit hilly. I'm not sure if that matters. How else can I "pimp" out my car? Thanks.So, do you mean this additional installation won't kill my resale value?Where can I buy such a thing?

A body kit will kill the resale value of your car, and it doesn't look very good to be honest. Look around for the OEM optional lip kit for the 98-01 integras.front and sides http://www.lips-kit.com/images/integ...ip-kit.jpgrear http://carphotos.cardomain.com/ride_...9_large.jpgget some nice wheels too, 15-16 inch will be good. rota c8 are nice, cheap wheels http://www.rotawheels.ca/gallery/rot...ntegra.jpghere is rota's catalog http://www.rotawheels.com/wheelcatalog.asp

It would be better to get a Type R lip kit. The body kits look "ok", but you'll alot of scrapes and tears on your front bumper by the end of the month. As for pimpin out your car: 15" Rota Rims are very nice, try addin' fog lights to the front, change your headlights to aftermarket one's, and maybe a Type R Spoiler. - Amicus
