Bulletproof_Automotive_Scion_FRS_1

The Bulletproof FR-S Concept One redefines the lightweight Scion FR-S as what it could potentially be as a super car. While maintaining the inherent light weight and balance of the FR-S, Bulletproof automotive set out to give the car a massive boost in power, while outfitting the interior with an array of exotic materials.

Under the hood, the Bullerproof FR-S is powered by a Powerhouse Amuse Turbo Kit with a Borg Warner turbo, that exhales through a titanium downpipe, front pipe, and full exhaust system, also from Powerhouse Amuse. An Ecutek Race Rom has the car tuned for E85 as well as 91 Octane, while the internals have been strengthened by way of upgraded pistons, rods, and ACL bearings.

Interior materials include a full alcantara conversion colored in a vibrant shade of red, as well as a custom steering wheel, carbon fiber materials, and race seats from Recaro. An 8 point roll cage compliments front and rear strut tower bars, all by Cusco, while an Original Runduce Racing Suspension keeps the car ready for the track.

The Bulletproof Automotive Scion FR-S uses the Varis Version III widebody kit.

JP Vizage Polyurethane front lip for Scion FR-S

JP Vizage is one of the industry’s heavyweights from Japan and has consistently provided excellent products for many of todays top tuning vehicles. JP Vizage prides themselves in making high quality ‘Super’ polyurethane products that exhibit outstanding fitment and durability qualities. The front lip is designed to fit snugly along the front bumper to give added downforce to the front bumper and also create a distinctive styling element without the consumer needing to purchase a complete 4 or 5pc kit. The front lip utilizes both screws and a 3m adhesive for a great fit, while contours of the lip flow naturally with the bumper and help to inspire a 1 piece look.

The list price on this product is $549 including shipping and can be purchased at Bodykitz.

The best selling body kit for the Scion FR-S has been the Five:AD body kit by Five Axis. This beautiful polyurethane body kit was designed for the Five Axis edition Scion FR-S that is sold in dealerships across the country but also available as an aftermarket kit. This body kit made headlines when used on John Doca design’s Carbon Stealth that earned a second place at the 2012 SEMA Scion Tuners Challenge last year. This body kit mounts to the existing bumpers and rockers to give the vehicle a substantially enhanced look. The front bumper is sculpted in a way to provide real world down force without the gaudy look of some more track relevant equipment.

Of course this kit was designed more for the masses and relatively few users will truly be able to appreciate the functionality of aerodynamics. What is more important is styling, pricing and user friendliness, all of which encompass this great body kit for the Scion FR-S.

We have gathered a huge variety of photos of the Scion FR-S Five Axis Body Kit and compiled them here. If you have a Scion FR-S and are thinking about upgrading to a new kit, take a look at the wide variety of vehicles show here to get a better idea of what may be possible for your vehicle.

Scion_FRS_APR_Front_Bumper_1

APR Performance is known internationally as a specialist that makes aerodynamic race products for the industries top vehicles including the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ. Unlike many of the manufacturers on the market, all of APR Performance’s exterior products are designed for functional aerodynamics and improved down force for maximal downforce, but also are extremely stylish and enhance the looks of the vehicle. The front bumper integrates some of the features of APR’s products into the design of a fiberglass reinforced plastic replacement front bumper. The bumper design looks similar to the stock front bumper, but utilizes a front lip that will help to use air flow to push the front bumper down under higher speeds on the track or street, thereby increasing traction and handling.

Scion_FRS_APR_Front_Bumper_2

The front bumper also utilizes the design of APR’s carbon fiber brake cooling ducts, which are designed to attach to APR’s brake cooling system. The cooling duct holes funnel air from the front bumper right to the brake discs by using a heat resistant hose that scoops up front end air and delivers it to the brake track. Many track racers have experienced higher heat under hard braking and have been looking for a solution to which APR has addressed.

Scion_FRS_APR_Front_Bumper_3

The APR GT front bumper for the Scion FR-S & Subaru BRZ also allows for the use of the stock fog lights of the FR-S, however for this front to be used on the BRZ customers will need to purchase the FR-S fog lights.

 

Scion_FRS_APR_Front_Bumper_5

The GT Front Bumper, although shaped in a similar fashion to the stock front bumper, also reduces frontal area which in turn reduces drag slightly. The center opening also is wide enough to allow a large amount of air into the inter-cooler area for supercharged or turbo applications.

Scion_FRS_APR_Front_Bumper_7

The APR Performance GT front bumper for the Scion FR-S & Subaru BRZ is made of a light weight fiberglass reinforced plastic that needs to be dry fit and prepped, primered and painted prior to installation. The FRP material is hand laid and high quality to ensure a good fit and the material holds paint better than other materials such as carbon or poly urethane.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_1

R-Magic, a top tuning company out of Japan has released a product line for the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86. Unlike most manufacturers who have released a complete body kit, R-Magic only has manufactured a front replacement bumper and rear spoiler, both give the vehicle an enhanced look with the given parts.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_2

The front bumper is styled after the same design made famous by the R-Magic Mazda RX-8 product line. The previous R-Magic design from which the Scion FR-S product takes after, utilizes a styling that is similar to the shape of the Mazdaspeed RX8 bumper but more curvaceous and flared with two side canards that skirt the bumper.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_3

 

R-Magic builds on the previous RX8 design by utilizing the same triangular brake ducts used on the standard Scion FR-S and Toyota 86. The photo above shows the stylish front canards that are integrated into the design of the bumper, these are similar to the ones found on some of the classic ‘Blitz’ bumper designs.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_4

 

In this photo from the side, you can see the R-Magic front bumper has a sharper snout than the stock bumper and a wide ‘mouth’ that would work great for forced induction systems needing a large opening for an intercooler. The R-Magic front bumper doesn’t drop down that much further than the sides and blends pretty well, however I think it would probably look better with some side skirts with a vent to match some of those on the bumper, or at least some side skirt diffusers to equalized the skirt level of the body.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_7

 

From the side view the car looks balanced with only the front canards bringing down the skirt line of the vehicle, although the vent on the sides of the bumper stand (stick) out with the more stock looking body. Again, I think a set of side skirts or side diffusers would do this setup wonders.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_5

 

The R-Magic rear spoiler does amazing work for the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86. This design looks very similar to the design by Wald, but also adds a trunk spoiler as the base to accentuate the curvature, almost giving it the look of a CSL style trunk.

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Body_Kit_6

Another view of the R-Magic rear spoiler that fits on the Subaru BRZ, Scion FR-S and Toyota 86. The base spans the entire length of the rear trunk and then some, while the pedestals curve upward and bend the carbon blade. The bolts holding the blade in are cleverly tucked inside of the pedestal inserts that have the “R-Magic” logo. What is incredible about the Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 R-Magic GT rear spoiler is that it does not require drilling to attach to the trunk, instead it uses a trunk bracket and 3m adhesive tape. Impressive!

Scion_FRS_R_Magic_Exhaust

This is the R-Magic exhaust system designed to fit the Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86. The R-Magic exhaust utilizes a burnt ti-tip and dual canisters. R-Magic also offers a complete line of tuning products for the Toyota 86 platform including suspension, engine, brake, clutch and miscellaneous products.

Scion_FRS_Avest_Body_Kit_1

Avest tuning and performance of Japan has released a distinctive new styling kit and accessories for the Toyota 86, Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S. This tuning package includes a very uniquely styled bumper replacement package consisting of a front bumper, two side skirts, a rear bumper, rear wing and roof panels. Also recently added to the Avest package are side mirrors with integrated LED lights. Scion_FRS_Avest_Body_Kit_2

The Avest body styling package for the Scion FR-S utilizes a very unique front bumper with an innovative style. The front bumper departs from the many curvaceous and boxy styles that have come out of Japan and instead uses distinctive angles and vertical LED lights that run up along side the signal lights. The Avest front bumper gives a unique “G” type contouring on the front grill area. You will notice that the front bumper and side skirts feature a unique black trim that helps to outline the styling and incorporate a diffuser look.

Scion_FRS_Avest_Body_Kit_3

The side skirts of the Avest body kit run the entire length of the vehicles rockers and extend up the side quarter panel. The side skirts feature a ‘trim’ similar to the one found on the front bumper which helps to outline the vehicles contours and give the look of a side skirt diffuser.

Scion_FRS_Avest_Body_Kit_4

The Avest front fenders for the Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 have a D1 style drift vent behind the front wheel, while retaining the front fender insert or replacing with a unique red and silver “86″ logo.

Scion_FRS_Avest_Body_Kit_5

The Avest rear bumper for the Scion FR-S Utilizes the same black trim contouring found on the front bumper and side skirts to enhance the rear vents. The rear diffuser is left stock and the bumper nicely wraps around.

Scion_FRS_Avest_Body_Kit_6

 

Here is a view from the rear of the Avest Scion FR-S where you can see how the rear vents on the bumper compliment the rest of the kit. This vehicle uses special red lenses on the rear tail lights, something we have seen on a few of the vehicles at the Tokyo Auto Salon. The rear spoiler uses a unique ‘pinhole’ design on each side of the wing deck outside of the pedestal. Also from this view you can see the Avest Aero Roof Panel.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_1

The Nobless Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ is a futuristic design that departs from the more sculted and curvaceous look of many of the body kits on the market. The front of the Nobless body kit has a distinctive angular look that is reminiscent of a stealth fighter. On each side of the front bumper are vertical LEDs integrated into the front bumper. The photo above shows the first prototype of this vehicle.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_2

Here is a prototype shot of the Nobless Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 rear  bumper which is less angular than the front bumper and utilizes a rear diffuser with a center dual exhaust system. The rear bumper integrates the rear brake and reverse lights routed up higher into the bumper instead of below in the diffuser area. The rear spoiler is reminiscent of the first generation WRX “CW” carbon fiber spoiler by Seibon.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_3

This is the Nobless Style Sports body kit on the Gram Lights Scion FR-S, Toyota 86.  This vehicle was prominently displayed at the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon, showcasing Rays Gram Light wheels in a gunmetal 19″ configuration. The wheels are a standard tuning wheel that boasts light weight and an open spoke design that showcases the vehicles big brake rotors and calipers. The Gram Lights Nobless Style Sports Toyota 86 shows the complete kit painted as opposed to the many other paint configurations that utilize a two tone paint job.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_4

The Gram Lights Toyota 86 uses the complete Noblesse Style Sports body kit with the exception of the rear wing, which is the standard TRD spoiler. The rear bumper of this vehicle has two side add ons that are actually a part of the bumper but painted with a satin black finish that gives it the look of two rear add ons that have been so commonly seen in the newer style body kits for the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_5

The Noblesse package for the Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 utilizes a unique dual canister exhaust system that routes into a dual center exhaust system that exlusively works with the Style Sports body kit. This view gives a good look at the rear diffuser and how air flow comes from under the vehicle and directed back up to connect with airflow coming off the top and sides at high speeds. The diffuser uses several fins on each side of the exhaust tips.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_6

These are the first press release shots of the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86 Nobless Style Sport Kit. For this vehicle the bumper has another two tone paint job that doesnt follow the same lines as the prototype version. I personally prefer the two toned paint scheme of the proto type as well as the matching tone of the Gram Lights Noblesse Sytle Sports vehicle.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_7

Another rear view of the Nobless Style Sports Scion FR-S, Toyota 86 during the press shoot. The rear wing creates a complete look that compliments the rest of the kit, while the TRD spoiler shown on the Gram Lights Noblesse also shows the versatility of this design.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_8

A view from straight behind the Nobless kit shows off the dual center exhaust tips being higher up on the vehicle. This look is reminiscent of the Porsche Boxster rear exhaust and bumper. Oviously these vehicles have quite a bit of styling differences but with the many variations of exhausts for the Scion FR-S, this one takes on a fresh design. The DAMD exhaust utilizes something close, but with the triple exhaust tips as it tries to echo the look of the Lexus LF-A.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_9

The view from the front of the vehicle shows the illuminated vertical LEDs which do a great job to accentuate the angular look of the Nobless Style Sports front bumper. The front view also reveals a similar look to the current Mitsubish EVOX above the grill area, and also leaves ample room for an intercooler for Turbo applications.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_10

I do enjoy the look and design of this kit but this style of two tone paint job really masks the beautiful angular design of the front bumper, one of its main styling features. The bumper is not excessively deep as you can see with the 18″ wheels and a flush wheel well, the bumper still has ample clearance compared to many of the other more aggressive body kits.

Scion_FRS_Nobless_Body_Kit_11

Conclusion: The Noblesse Style Sports Body Kit and Exhaust makes a body kit that can give off a different feel depending on how its painted. The design is definitely futuristic, the exhaust is a tuners delight. I am not so sure about the rear spoiler which is somewhat of a dated design. The Noblesse body kit does take on a unique style in all other areas though and innovation in the center exhaust, raised brake and reverse lights, as well as the vertical LEDs integrated into the front bumper.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_1

The beautiful car that you are seeing is the Pat Cyr, Cyrious Garage Scion FR-S drift car that will be representing Scion in the Canada drift circuit this upcoming season. Pat Cyr will be piloting this vehicle, switching from his previous season racing and drifting on a Toyota AE86 Corolla. Last season Pat Cyr took second place overall in the Drift Mania Canadian Championships. Pat Cyr’s garage called Cyrius Garage has done all the work reworking a stock Scion FR-S and turning (tuning) it into a 500 horse power monster.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_2

Cyrious Garage took delivery of a red Scion FR-S and stripped it down to its bare bones to begin working on the future drift super car. The engine bay was cleared out and an FA20 engine was installed along with a Garrett Turbucharger and various parts by Mishimoto. The exhaust system of choice is a 3.5″ Vibrant single side exhaust. The inside was completed with a full roll cage and Sparco seats and accessories.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_3

On the exterior of the Scion FR-S from Cyrious Garage, parts of the ML24 aero body kit were used including the four fender arch flares and the ML24 aero front lip. The side skirts and rear apron parts were omitted. The wheels of choice are Work.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_4

Here is a front view of the Cyrious Garage Scion FR-S wher you can see the wide body arches by ML24 bringing a wider stance to the vehicle, giving it more traction and control under high speeds. The front lip also utilizes a custom front bumper splitter that increases down force. The Mishimoto intercooler is prominently on display through the stock front bumper grill area.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_5

In addition to the custom front air splitter, the rear of the vehicle uses a pronounced duck bill style spoiler which also helps to put more down force onto the rear of the vehicle where power output connects to the ground. The stock rear diffuser is left relatively in tact and one exhaust hole is left open as the custom exhaust only routes to one side.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_6

Here is a closup view of the ML24 Scion FR-S Front Fender Flare riveted to the stock fendrs as well as the white Work wheels chosen for this vehicle. The hood utilizes Aerocatch flushmount hood pins.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_7

Pat Cyr is an accomplished drift racer that previously used a Toyota AE86, now standing along side the descendent of such a great car.

Scion_FRS_Pat_Cyr_Drift_Car_8

Here you can see the interior of the Scion FR-S drift car by Cyrius Garage. Cyrius Garage creates custom roll cages and of course built the one encasing the driver Pat Cyr in this vehicle. Also you can see the Sparco race seats and harnesses, as well as the bare interior that will likely lead to a great season for Pat Cyr.

ML24 Body Kit and Fender Flares for Scion FR-S

Matthew Law of ML24 designs is in the works to product a stylistic and high tech body kit and fender flare system for the Scion FR-S and Toyota 86. The ML24 Scion FR-S body kit, also called the “Aero Lip Kit” is designed to function with or without the fender flares and can be styled to feature painted to match parts or a two tone look with equally beautiful results.

ML24 Body Kit and Fender Flares for Scion FR-S

The ML24 kit is made of a high grade FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastic) or in the special edition Crawford carbon fiber is used for the lips and fender flares.  The kit is comprised of a front air dam, two piece rear add ons, plus right and left side skirts. The fender flare kit is a four piece kit that can be used with our without the body kit and each panel bolts into the body and can feature a matching paint job or two tone look.

The ML24 aero body kit for the Scion FR-S is a modular design and will bring the depth of the vehicle down by approximately 1.75 inches. The front air dam features a pronounced front lip that will help provide down force under higher speeds. The front lip tapers upwards towards the outer portion of the vehicle and when paired with the fender flares allows for air flow to curve up and over the wheel wells, thus reducing drag to a minimum.

In this photo from the rear you can see the ML24 Scion FR-S Fender Flare Arches widen the vehicle approximately 2″ on each side for a substantially wider stance. The manufacturer recommends a 19″ wheel for this setup and width depends on personal preference. The fender flares use rivets to secure to the body panels and can be molded and filled as well.

This photo shows the ML24 fender flares applied without the aero lip kit. The Scion FR-S can accomodate a variety of options with the ML24 flares and will fit with many styles of aftermarket body kits and aero kits. Unlike the Rocket Bunny fender flares, this design runs from the bottom of the front fender and arches all the way through to the side skirt area. Several of the new designs out of Japan have a partial flare that ends in the mid portion of the rear of the fender leaving an incomplete look. This design is a much more classic flare look.

For tuners who want to opt for a different body kit than the Scion FR-S ML24 aero lip kit, the fender flares fit flush against the lines of the brake ducts and can easily accomodate another front lip with minimal or no modification. The ML24 fender flares will also easily allow for the installation of a front splitter such as the Scion FR-S APR Performance carbon fiber front splitter.

The following photos show Garret Turbo and Scion Racing sponsored rider, Pat Cry’s Scion FR-S that has been dominating the drift circuit. We will have a more in depth review of Pat Cry’s Scion FR-S in a later post. This vehicle shows the ML24 Scion FR-S aero kit mounted in a two tone paint scheme giving the vehicle a black trim that matches the sponsor decals.

The above combination shows the ML24 complete setup with a painted to match ML24 aero kit with a black trim on the optional fender flares. When shown on a red or white vehicle, the black trim really accentuates the fender flare lines and gives off a large wheel appearance. This paint scheme could also go well with black film on the head lights, tail lights and windows.

Rocket Bunny Wide Body Kit for Scion FR-S

Rocket Bunny Wide Body Kit for Scion FR-S

There is no doubt that the Scion FR-S and its sister vehicles (Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ) are remarkable vehicles with an unprecedented variety of aftermarket accessories available. The 2012 SEMA show in Las Vegas and the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon allowed for a peak into what will be coming out for this vehicle in the way of body kits and exterior styling. Two distinct styles were presented in each show, at the SEMA show the styling was more of a ‘tuner’ look with track and drift relevance, while the Tokyo Auto Salon wowed the crowd with less functional and more aesthetically pleasing designs, many of which took on the VIP and Executive look of giving the vehicle the high end look. What is great is that each show displayed the versatility of this vehicle in tuning to your particular taste.

The many factors to consider when purchasing a Scion FR-S body kit. Many tuning enthusiasts only consider one or two elements when purchasing a body kit. It can be a time and financial investment so there are many factors to look into and must be evaluated before your purchase. Some of these factors include:

  • Price
  • Material (carbon fiber, FRP (fiberglass), ABS plastic, urethane
  • Ease of installation
  • Type of body kit (lip kit, diffuser kit, full bumper replacement kit)
  • Purpose (show, track, drift, street, aesthetics and general use, mixed use)
  • Availability of installers near you
  • Look of the kit

Lets look at each of these factors a little more closely and take each into consideration when purchasing a body kit for your Scion FR-S or Subaru BRZ.

Price -

This is the most common determining factor in purchasing a body kit but often can be the most misleading. Body kit development and manufacturing has come a long way since the old Fast and Furious days of cheap fiberglass kits that were paper thin and required an enormous amount of work. Some FRP kits still do require quite a bit of work, even more so when considering a wide body kit that takes many hours to put on. Often you can find an inexpensive kit that will cost a large sum to finish, paint and install. We’ll go over that later in the materials section, but for now just keep in mind that price is not the end all-be all. A full bumper kit may require many extra hours of work as opposed to a lip kit, and both will require paint. On the other hand, a carbon fiber lip kit can be installed without paint and mounted to the existing bumpers which saves on both materials and installation rate. Lastly you will want to consider the durability of the part, is it a FRP part that can easily get damaged or something that will last a lot longer.

An FRP Wide Body Kit has a very desirable look, but cost of installation must be considered.

Material –

Body kits are made of several different types of materials and it is important to get a grasp of the pros and cons of each type of material for your Scion FR-S body kit.

FRP – FRP stands for Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic, which is the engineering term for what most people call fiberglass. So when you hear FRP or Fiberglass or Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic you are typically talking about the same thing. FRP is the least costly to manufacturer and the easiest to repair if damaged. The cost and easy ability to replicate designs make FRP the most common material used in body kits, upwards of 95% of the market is FRP. FRP also holds paint better than other types of materials.

While there are many very good FRP body kits on the market, there are also many poor quality kits as well. The explosion of the tuning industry made many cheap replicas come out on the market and has given the industry a bad reputation. Often people are weary to buy an FRP body kit because of this. There are many good FRP kits out there but be weary on very cheap kits as often you will get what you pay for (or less) if you get something that costs $350 but $1000 to install and lasts only a couple of years. This is a one way ticket to frustration and expense.

Polyurethane – also just called urethane is a flexible and rubberish material that is used on most stock bumpers and some body kits. Polyurethane has excellent fitment properties making it easier to install. The downside of urethane is it costs more to manufacturer and therefore less available and more expensive compared to FRP. If your vehicle has a polyurethane option available for it, it is most definitely worth considering purchasing for the ease of installation and durability factors.

ABS Plastic – ABS as it is called is similar to polyurethane but a bit more rigid. ABS is not used in very many body kits on the market but you do see it from time to time. As of this writing I do not know of any body kits made of ABS plastic for the Scion FR-S. ABS typically fits great but might be a bit fragile in extreme cold (becoming more brittle) so typically it is used for lip kits where there is less of a chance of it flexing and breaking.

Carbon Fiber – Carbon fiber (also called CFRP, carbon fiber reinforced plastic) is typically what is used for most carbon fiber hoods, kits, trunks and other parts in the automotive industry, also called ‘wet laid’ carbon fiber. This type of product is a carbon fiber fabric laid over a FRP mold and then the resins are injected and hardened, then the product is finished with a clear coat. The other type of carbon fiber used mostly on very expensive race cars is called ‘dry’ carbon and is the same type of carbon used in the aerospace industry. The cost of “dry” carbon is typically 3-4 times that of the cost of wet laid carbon. Most items you will find are wet laid unless otherwise specified, and you will know it judging by the price.

Carbon fiber typically is meant to be installed as is, a finished product, and can potentially save cost over a similar item that has to be painted. For example, a lip kit that costs $1299 and a carbon fiber lip kit that costs $1599 you may see a price difference of $300 but when the standard lip kit requires paint and prep, you may spend more on that than the carbon fiber version.

Ease of Installation -

APR Performance Track Series Body Kit for Scion FR-S

APR Performance Track Series Body Kit for Scion FR-S

The easiest type of kit that can be installed would be a ‘diffuser’ style body kit that uses diffusers and/or splitters that mount to the underside of the vehicles bumpers and rocker panels. A good example of this would be the APR Performance Track Series Body Kit. As you can see in this example, the parts do not need to replace existing parts and basically bolt to the bumpers and rockers, furthermore this kit is made of carbon fiber, therefore no prep (sanding, shaving, filling) or paint is required.

The next easiest kit would be a carbon fiber lip kit, this of course will also not require shaving or filling but you will have to remove the bumpers and mount the lip pieces to the bumpers and rockers. This is not much more difficult to install than the diffuser kit mentioned above.

Paintable lip kits would be next in line, with polyurethane being a bit easier to install than an FRP part which would likely involve a little bit more prep work. Full bumper replacement kits would be the next hardest and just like in the case of lip kits, polyurethane would be a preferable material from an installation perspective to FRP. Lastly a wide body kit would be the most difficult to install because this would require additional body work to mount the fender flares.

Type of Body Kit, Desired Look and Desired Use -

The next determining factor is what you plan on using the body kit for. Are you using it to add some style to your vehicle, or will it be used on the track and require the most amount of down force? Or something in between?

Nearly all body kits will give your vehicle a stylish upgrade so it is important to find one that you like the look of. Also most body kits will give your vehicle some sort of functional down force under higher speeds. A wide body kit will also help vehicles that are destined for track use utilize wider tires/wheels for optional traction while shielding the additional width from the wind.

Summary - 

Make sure to take all of these factors into consideration when choosing a body kit. Take your time to explore all the details, don’t be afraid to call the manufacturer and ask details. It is also a good idea to research installers, every shop has different materials rates and experience levels (time to completion). A body kit will change the look of your vehicle, most of the time for the better but if not done right it could be time and money consuming.
