Buddyclub2 front on stock height, stock sides, stock rear...?

Would it look bad to replace JUST my front bumper with the BC2 one with stock sideskirts/rear? How much lower is the BC2 front than OEM? (98 v6 accord coupe)

the reason is that my front bumper right now is a lil dinged up, and i was planning on putting on a front lip, but whats the point if my bumper looks like crap...

anyway thanks in advance for any input


*Edit* Sorry thought i put it in the Show Mods Forum... mods feel free to move it

With the amount of money you are gonna spend on getting a BC2 front bumper, getting it fitted and getting it painted you could just have your OEM bumper repaired and install a lip while you're at it. For my opinion, I have never been a fan of having an aftermarket front bumper and nothing to go with it... I like the idea of a lip better..

Please never do a front body kit with stock sides and rear. Its going to look miserable, lol. First off, your front BC 2 bumper will be lower then ur sides and rear, which will make it look uneven. Last, it just wont flow, AT ALL. I would just buy a new OEM front, and stick on a lip, itll look 100x better

Get the full kit or no kit at all ...


You can get your oem bumper fixed with a lip cheaper than the BC2 Cost ..

Here's how it looks:



I think it looks great I've be driving around like this for 1 1/2 years.




























j/k pic was during the dry fit of the whole kit.

If you get just the front that will look absolutely horrible. The whole kit is nice but your car will look really retarded with the front bumper being like three inches lower than the rest of your body panel.

^^Agreed, just do the lip. I'm even thinking about getting rid of the kit and going with the oem lips.

Mine sits 1.5" off the ground. I can just barely fit my tennis shoe from the ground to the bottom of the carbon fiber splitter. Sometimes I can't fit a boot.

Sprayglo in Duluth did my car (body kit painting an quarter panel repair), everything still looks good except for a small clearcoat runoff on the quarter panel.

If you go to the Duluth location, make sure you have Jason take care of your car. You'll need to talk to Ed about the estimate (he's the owner). Tell them that Michael from Team XLR8SHEN sent you.
