Considering going back oem

So ive been thinking alot lately that I might just take off my body kit besides the side skirts and put the oem bumpers back on and buy a nice lip for the front and get an accord lip for the rear, o and might even take the hood off as well, I really like the oem look and originally bought the kit for the side skirts but the guy didnt want to separate them and after that I kindof got sucked into a rice phase I guess. What do u guys think?

It's your car man, just depends what look your going for. If you want to be different, keep it, if not then oem it is.

Re: Considering going back oem

I dont care for most body kits, I just really wanted some side skirts, my current front bumper is the only aftermarket 1 I would put on and for the rear bumper I was tired of seeing a giant dent in my oem 1 so I switched it out as well

Re: Considering going back oem

ok, bumpers are not the easiest repairs, but its worth the project, make sure you use a flex additive in the paint, etc. otherwise you will have problems in the long run.
