Default Body Kit Combo Opinions

Hey Guys,

Need a quick opinion of yay or nay of a couple of ideas I had rolling around in my head. Brother in-law just scraped my bumper and the rear is overdue for paint. I have just sourced an authentic V3 back bumper and plan on purchasing the N3-R front bumper from APTech as it accommodates my Zspeed undershroud, but stuck on what would look good for sides. I honestly do not like the V3 side skirts as they look kind of plain IMO. I do have a guy local who is selling authentic Chargespeed sides that might look good but not entirely sure .

In terms of paint scheme, I am really digging the new Nismo design for the GTR and 370z.

What you guys think? Any constructive opinions will be greatly appreciated!

Get v3! Plain sides are like trend today... You can find then on every new car. Take a look at your GTR reference for example.

Thanks ARRT! Just wanted to see if there was a better option. I forgot to mention that APTech is also offering a Ings style side skirt which probably wouldn't look to bad either.

I hear those APTech guys are pretty legit. That being said, an aggressive front and rear may not look "on fleek" with some "plain" sides.

Stock V3 side skirt is your best bet imo. I fckin hate the side splitter trend going on right now.

Thanks for the input guys. Looks like plain is the way to go I guess. Kind of wanted to be a bit different then a regular nismo clone.

What do you guys think of the paint scheme? The mixture of the nismo KW11 grey with the red stripe?

Thumbs up

I believe it may look very up to date

As to your opinion on being "just another nismo clone" - the amount of engineering and design efforts put into this kit should make you proud to use one on your car

Thanks for the input guys! Looks like I have to choose between the Nismo V3, Amuse, or APTech sides.
