Nice kit. The car looks much meaner now. Personally I would have preferred a bit more subtle side skirt. The current one looks a bit too flashy for my liking.

Overall, good job. Enjoy your ride and respect those speedbreakers henceforth. Cheers

I am happy that every one liked the kit.The quality is also good and the kit is not that low slung too.The speciality of ntf kits are that the GC wont be reduced like the after market kits.ITNERD please clarify that after checking your car.

iTNerd, car looks real good. But be careful with the scraping & grounding, would be a tragedy if those got spoilt!

Hope to see the car during the NCR meet on the 15th - you coming?

i always feel first get rims and then kit. one friend of mine first got a kit from ntf for 26000 for new city zx then found out the car was looking so bad, even though the kit is hot but he had to spend another half a lak on rims and tyres and ended up with 15 inchers. lol 75k just like that in a weeks time

Slightly OT, prices for these kits are coming down by leaps and bounds. Last time checked the price of an OEM kit with a GM dealer (for my Aveo), I was quoted 30k including painting and fitting. Called them yesterday and now the all-inclusive price is 20k :-)

Waiting for it to fall further!

Thanks. yes, will have to be extra careful :( . Not sure about the NCR meet, pretty much busy with work. BTW, where is the venue? Not been in one meet before!

Some photoshopped preview with decals below. What do you guys think?

That kit looks nice.looks best on the white car.a set of 17"ers would have complemented the kit and changed the looks dramatically.And those decals definitely is a no no.

too. Looks super clean with no decals and stickers... more so cos the car is white.

One suggestion though from my side is to get rid of all the badging on the rear. Looks cluttered. Removing them will enhance the look of the lip spoiler.

If you need tips on removing it, search the forum. There is a thread on it. (DIY thingy).
