Default Body Kit for Accent

Hi Guys.

I want to add a body kit to my Accent and am seeking your advice on going about this. Listed below are all the relevant details

1. Not looking at replacing the existing bumpers.
2. Looking for skirts for the rear & front bumpers and side skirts.
3. Please provide me the cost for both the options, though I would be going for option 2.

Thanks

My serious advice to you is as follows. Please Dont change the Bumpers on an Accent. Let me work on some photoshop mods for you. You can do some Mesh Work replacing your original grille and Bumper inlets.

If you are trying to make your car a sleeper, dont mod the outside of your car at all. That is what a sleeper looks like. An absolutely unmodded exterrior with a powerpacked engine.

Wow. Thanks for the pics Esteem lover, this is exactly what I am looking for.

Cyrus43 - It would be great if you can PS an Accent for me. I am tempted to add the skirts or bumper extensions or whatever you call it to the outside of the car.

ANy idea on the cost of doing it like in the pics posted here.

I have a real earth colour. So it is paramount to keep this in mind when modifying else it would not look to good

audiophile thanks a billion for this. This is super fabulous and exactly what I want to do to my Accent. The white one and the cherry one look stunning.

The florescent green I believe IMO can give someone a headache after a long time, though it is a one of a kind.

Kitup is really good and so are their designs. Only problems is that they are in Coimbatore.

Anyway, I need to know the following.

1. What are the kits called, obviously since some of them are not full bumper replacements, but extensions added to it.
2. What would be the full cost of these, front, rear and sides.
(I heard somewhere that is around 5,000 for the entire set.

Thanks

Karan, 5k only for the skirts.

Mods: Sorry for posting so fast. But I was unable to edit my link. It took me to some error page.

I came across this Accent on Autopsyche. Can some one give me the cost of this.

@thedreamcatcher, try contacting Kitup and see if they can courier the kit to you. You can then have someone fit them on your car in Gurgaon.

I dont think you will get any kit for 5K.

Anyway, happy hunting.
