The Octy has to look aggressive in a restrained sort of a way. That's what the OE kit does best. But, hey as long as you like it.

hey
the kit makes it look too bulky and takes away that agressive look.try and re-shape it so as too minimise the bukiness.it will look a lot better once thats done and probably if its painted black or any dark colour it wont look all that bad.

you will get a lot of criticism on that kit but in the end all that matters is whether you like it.
you spent a lot of money on it and probably it wasnt the best decision but just chill out take the suggestions and criticism and do what you can to make it look better

Cool

the skoda with those headlights and bumpers make it look like somwhat like an evo.....a cluttered evo though.....
flared wheel arches and wider tyres will compliment that cluttered bumper though...

The wheels and skirts look nice.But get rid of the front bumper.Let it be stock.It'll look much much better.Basically,the front end looks too damn confused with all the vents and meshings.

Didn't like the kit overall. It looks exactly like the Rio Old Honda City front bumper. The main reason the bumper looks bad is that it has too much of mesh, replace the side meshes with some fogs, will look much better. And one very good question: WHY DID YOU CHANGE THE ORIGINAL GRILLE??!!! The original grille would've looked much much better! Try to do these changes, I'm sure it'll look much better then.

Seen a white Rio Skoda Octavia, has the same kit present on the yellow RS. Looked better than the yellow.

Thanx Guys for the suggestions on how I can make it look better. I am working on how I can make changes to the existing front bumper and make it look better.

Thanks!

wondering how that will work ..you need to make it simpler , get rid of that buldge on the side of the bumper ..make the slats look sharper ..
spray the grill mesh black ..mid bumper it too ovalish ..make it squarer ..

and plzzz put the vRS logo back on !!


cheers

The thread is over a year old. civic93_gen2 probably got a kit that suits his tatstes. No point suggesting him stuff anymore. This thread is closed.
