    Default Need info on the vxr body kit.

    I have an "04" CDTI and the VXR Bumpers in the kit won't fit on my car without some serious modifications,(or so I have been told).What I was wondering is this.If I fit VXR skirts will they be lower than the existing lip on the front/rear bumpers?.
    What I would like to do,as an alternative to the full kit,is to fit new sills/skirts,a rear boot lip and a roof lip,but need to know if the side skirts are lower because if they are then it's going to look odd,(to say the least)!.
    Can anyone help me or offer some alternative suggestions?.
    Thanks in advance.

    the vxr skirts are deeper than the std ones
    for an 04 plate there wasn't a vxr front bumper, most people would just fit the irmscher front splitter or similar
    and the vxr rear bumper will fit straight on no problem

    Anything for the front of a VXR won't be a direct fit for yours because the front end is completely different. However, with enough modification anything can be made to fit - it just depends on how much work you're willing to put in to it...

    Thanks.The reason I have been banging on about it is that the guy who I want to do the body upgrade is refusing point blank to attempt fitting anything that isn't from a recognized source.He said that he has had too many problems in the past,especially with aftermarket kits,and with his business being time/cost related,he just doesn't want the hassle,which is fair enough I suppose.FELIXX.
