Icon5 Your thoughts

Okay,

So I went out and checked out some stuff this person is selling.

Type S intake - $150 - Most likely going to purchase it. But what would your thought be about putting it on a base 99. I already have some giant intake on there, don't know what brand it is but ya, maybe ill take some pics when I get home.

Type S foglights - $400 - Comes with everything to wire and mount. Including the switch. Definitely going to purchase.

Now here is the one I want thoughts on.
1)Complete, almost mint Polyurethane OEM Honda Bodykit
- Electron Blue Pearl Colour
- Front lip (scratches on bottom, not noticeable when installed)
- Driver and Passenger side skirt
- Rear lip
- All mounting bolts, spring clips and instructions included
$1100

Now when I think of bodykit I think full bumpers. These are just extensions, like the side skirts.

I put the front one on, and I must say it looked pretty sweet.

(not my car, thats the sellers car, but he doesn't have the car any more)

But 1100. That reasonable? out of this world or a great deal?

Re: Your thoughts

Type S intake - the only intake I would reccommend other than the stock one.

Foglights - That's about what they sell for, if you're happy to spend that then go right ahead.

Lip kit - $1100 for the full kit seems a bit steep, brand new from www.handaaccessories.com the front lip goes for $168, side skirts for $342 and rear lip for $264. So that adds up to a bit under $800, then you have to get it all painted, since they only have ebp in stock. If you want a good look at what the OEM lip kit looks like on a car search pooponurhead's member's ride thread.

Re: Your thoughts

The lip kit i say pass like brass said can get it for cheaper and brand new.

Fog i would say pass b/c ya thats what they go for but $400 for a set of fog. Do you really want to spend that much. Plus i seen then go for $250-$300 on ebay. Intake not to bad and it flows the best but still $150. They have to be some tings you are dead seat of getting and for the most part buying them to show off in a way. U have an auto or 5 speed?

Awesome thx brash, Ye I like the OEM lip kit. Looks great on his car.

This one is blue, so for now I would just leave it as is and enjoy the black body with blue lips :P
Glad to hear about the intake, I'm going to purchase that tomorrow. And the fogs ill grab next pay. Ill see how flexible he is on the kit then. Especially since if purchased from HA, its brand new, where as this is used.

The fogs on ebay don't come with the wire harness though, or at least the ones I have checked. I checked out everything today and the fogs came with everything, and had very minimal markings.

What would you suggest for a price of an intake.

I have 5 speed.
