wowsers. that car would not last a DAY in northern virginia. I like that kit ok on your car - I think its a crime that you're not rocking 19's with it, but obviously you've got a direction for this car so I respect that. Congrats on a beautiful ride!

Racked up over 800 miles of driving on kit and only broke one ziptie.

I still can't get over how HUGE those side skirts are. You must have to watch your step
when getting out of the vehicle or may just set on the skirt and ruin the paint. Looks awesome
though. Needs an intercooler. Hahaha, where are the zipties used?

zip ties are good enough to keep it in place, only way something will fly off is if he hits something
