Unhappy Someone please help me out with this..Im New

I admit I am new and have no idea what will look right...... My problem is this.... I own a 98' Sedan Accord and purchased only the WW Front Bumper for $200 . I have yet to put it on because I dont know how to finish it off... I am willing to spend around $350 if I must for the sides and bumper but I dont know what would look best.if you know someone selling the sides and bumper for cheap or other options that look good please post!!..

I have checked ebay and found some nice prices but I dont know what works best with the WW Front Lip.... I have 17 inch black Motegi's on it now and a Magnaflow dual exhaust on the back.... Should I just buy the WW bumper and ignore the side skirts?

My idea was just paint the mudflaps and put only a front bumper on... but i have been advised this would look unbalanced and bad... if someone anyone CAN PLEASE help me out i would very much appreciate it.....i just wanna know what direction to go in......aslo keep in mind i live in Pennsylvania (terrible roads) so the lowering may not be a good idea...... Thank you

I don't know if you'll be able to find the WW sides/rear for $350...and then get it all painted. Personally I think the WW kit should stay with the WW kit (ie. no mis-match). If I were you I'd either go with JUST the front...or send the front back...and spend the $550 on something else.

Oh and my sis used to go to school in PA...I refused to ever DRIVE up there for a visit because the roads would've torn my car apart.

below are pics of the silk auto. sides and bumper.. would they work well with the WW front bumper? I hate to send it back due to shipping costs... I just am really puzzled towards what 2 do.. Is there a front bumper out there that looks good without the skirts and rear? Please post I need help on this stuff

First: dont buy from andy's autosport!!!
second: thats a knock off black widow kit
Third: it will not look good with WW cuz of how boxy the BWI kit is
Fourth: I go to college in gettysburg, PA and yes the roads suck, my car is still lowered and it just takes some effort to drive on the roads around here, but its do-able

My suggestion would be just to return the WW front, because like others have said, you won't be able to get get a kit/paint for another $350, for decent stuff it will be closer to $1000 including paint. Then get yourself some headers and/pr under drive pulleys.

Well the paint cost is no biggie i know a guy for that.. but looks like ill be sending the WW front back to andys... would this be a good springs kit Eibach Springs - Pro Kit (Lowers Front:2.0inch/ Rear:1.7 inch) for my car? and then just leave the car be without a kit? and what kind of pr under drive pulleys do u suggest?

also is there any front bumper out there that looks good alone without skirts and rear?

I have H&R sport springs which are very simmilar to the eibach prokit springs, mine are 1.5" front 1.3" rear. Theres a fair number of people around here with unorthodox racing pulleys and they work very well on the AV6.

If you want to get some sort of body work, find either a mugen front lip or type-r lip, those are about the only two that look good by themselves. Right now I'm looking to get rid of my Kaminari lip kit because I'm sick of driving with it and I cant keep it looking nice, and I'm either going to switch to a type-r front lip or keep it stock.

Also, where in PA are you?

Send the front lip back, get some nice suspension setup and slam the ride. Trust me, it will look awesome even without the lipkit. For example, check out vietninjaj30a1's ride. If that's not your style, then i guess save up more for the full WW kit. Look on forsale section on v6p, you will find good deals it just takes time.

lower your ride man, its looks better right away, if you buy anything make sure you dont buy fiberglass or you'll be painting it every 6 months.
