Body kit possibilities?

Hi...I've been away from the forums for a while so my apologies in advance if the questions I'm asking are a bit basic.<p> Does anyone know of any body kits out there (bumpers, side valences, etc) for the C70?<p>The best body mod I've learned of recently (although probably apparent to the rest of you) is to add a V70R front bumper to the front of my '01 C70. That leaves me asking about rear bumpers and side skirts that would match that bumper...would one use the S70 body parts for this set up? I'm not real keen on the shape of the C70's front or rear bumpers...especially the rear as it seems to run up a bit high, so I thought that a V70R/S70 combo of some type might work out to provide a sporty yet stealthy look.<p>I saw that one guy over in Spain was trying to sell what I thought was a goofy-looking wide body...wasn't really my style.<p>So...suggestions? Insite? All are welcomed. From what little I know it doesn't appear that there really are a lot of options. Perhaps the C70 community can enlighten me?<p>Thanks in advance,<br>Tony in San Jose, CA.

There are no body kits for the C70. There are a few lips, splitters, etc, but nothing full out unless it's a custom 1 off creation.

There is a kit, but I'm not going to tell you because it's ugly as hell... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/sly.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>There is also a very aggresive frontspoiler from Realcar/Evolve available.<p>What wheels and suspension do you have, because I think every sort of more aggresive spoiler doesn't look good if the car isn't lowered and had at least 18"...

Lowering the car is the best thing to do for starters. It really does improve the look of the car (and the ride at higher speed if you go with a tighter suspension, which you should)....but the rear bumper does still ride kinda high. I haven't seen anything to remedy that. <p>I personally don't like the look of the V70 R front bumper on a C70. It lookes sweet on the V70 but it looks too squared off on the C70 (which doesn't have a straight line on the thing).

I concur. The V70R bumper, especially from the side, totally cuts off from the smooth line of the C70, and adds an unwanted shape to the thing. I was thinking, perhaps using bondo and repainting, you might be able to make the R bumper flow into the shape of the car from the side more.

by far the ugliest kit and biggest degradation of a C70 appearance I has ever seen... and those that know me, know I have an open mind about this stuff.

That really is one of the uggliest kits I have seen. <p>There is a guy who made a sustom wide body kit for the C70, Here is his site:<p><A HREF="http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2090227" TARGET="_blank">http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2090227</A><p>I have exchanged a few email with him, so If you want his email let me know, Only like 1500 or so.

Re: Body kit possibilities? (redfivex)

Looking good!<p>You should lower it, tint would be nice. <br>Paint your grille black for now, it's really inexpencive and totally transforms the look of the front end.

I think you should lower it and leave off the tint. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">
