Saw this Zen parked at Aram society in Kalina... this was a long time ago..





The wheels look OK, but I'd prefer to put different ones. I love the skirting and the very subdued yet visibly distinct spoiler. I want this exact kit.. does anyone know if this is a standard off-the-shelf kit available with some mod shop or was it (gasp) custom made?

From the first pic it seems like he didn't put the rear bumper cuz it just doesn't go with the skirting and the front. Whoever made this kit has to have the rear one and I'll obviously wan that too.

And how much would this darn thing COST?

To make a long story short .. when u go towards juhu from santacruz on linking road, take the left at the garden, and then at the signal take a right, then take another left into a small gully and there's your guy .. 4-5 shops down the line.

I'll probably go see him this week...

Thanks NC !

Nope, this pic was taken a long time ago when the New Zen was not even announced. The side indicator similarity is probably just a coincidence.

I beg to differ. In fact, the spoiler is what actually caught my eye. Back then, NFS Underground wasn't out, and I wasn't so much into bumpers and skirts, but yeah I had been wanting to get a nice spoiler for the Zen. However, I could never find something that really appealed to me as a workable spoiler. Most so called spoilers end up looking just like window shades for the rear glass and I don't want that. By workable i don't mean a real spoiler that actually does the job of a spoiler, I just mean something that isn't just a window shade. I saw this spoiler and it looked great, and then i saw the other parts and everything looked pretty cool to me.. I quite like it.

Nope, as of now these are all the pics I have. I'm not going to visit Aram society in the near future, so sorry I don't think I can get more pics. I can, however, try and take pics at this garage or shop where the kit is available...

Heh, I'm going to check into that the first thing. I've already heightened my car a few inches by putting those "spacers" that some people are against. I feel its been a good decision. Has helped me a lot. After putting these skirts if the problems are going to return, I'll have to pass...

I doubt it .. compo knockoffs maybe, but i doubt they are the real thing. Does compo even make Zen profiles? The tyres in the pic look stock, so I doubt the wheels are of a matching profile... correct me if i'm wrong here .. I'm not the expert!
