What sides goes best w/ OEM front?

Need everyones opinion. Out of the following three, which of the following side skirts will match the best with an OEM 98-00 Accord Coupe Front Lip?


1. Mugen Side Skirts

2. Wings West Side Skirts

3. Back to ordinary stock rocker panels

I wanted the Wings West but they are a grip, roughly $250+paint. Next option was the Mugen side skirts - $90+paint, but they haven't came out for the 2doors yet (hear you need to modify to make it shorter). Lastly is factory, which is $200 painted.

Suggestions? I had a full BW kit but I'm slowly taking each piece off.

I liked the way kaminari looked. Was set on buying them until I found out its made of fiberglass. I can't stand having them chip like the way they did on my BW sides. Only ABS or polyurethane for now on.

KCMC, how far down does your side skirts sit? I've never seen the kit installed on a car in person until yesterday. It doesn't hang that much down. How is the kit holding up? Thanks. I may recondiser if it isn't too aggressive looking.
