I'm interested in spicing up my exterior a little more. I'm saving up for new wheels with more aggressive offset and also just got retrofits in, will be buying fogs soon and possibly a Mugen fuel cap (if that fits over the Accord gas cap?).

One thing I'm also considering is the ARC Magic winglets that are supposedly "soooo JDM." I actually dig the winglets a lot, like the ones on Neel's 7th gen. Here's some pics of what I mean:





Problem is I've rarely seen them on Accords. I know they run $200, but that's not too bad really imo for the look. Do you know if DC2 or EK9 would fit an Accord with a mugen lip? That's my main question. Thanks.


Oh, and do they all stick out a lot in the front? Or could I fit them more flush against my mugen lip?

??

I've never seen a pair mounted on a 6th gen.

I think you could mount those up so they sit flush with a lip. I'm guessing you could mount em up to the front lip flush if you have enough surface area underneath.

I would say upgrade your lip to a poly unit first before you add winglets. Adding those to a ABS plastic lip is asking for trouble IMO.

I'm thinking now I should save the $200 for something else.

^^naw i aint tryna call u out or anything. they had some ****ty knock off versions anyways. i think it really depends on the cars bodystyle. 7th gens look good with em but idk about a 6th gen coupe. Guess well all have to see it cause i dont think anyone has really done it yet

When i first saw type r grills i thought they looked nasty. But three years later guess who is rocking a type r grill? hahaha

i loved my set but to be honest it was a pain to drive around with them slammed. kept on worrying that i'd crack them off wherever i go

I don't like them, especially for the cost, and the tacky looking sticker ( WAAAY to big)


I think you would be better of spending money on something else

They are around $300 or more shipped depending on where you get them.

But for a 6th gen you would be gambling on which DC2 or EK9 fitment will fit your car.
