don't know if this is old information, I just found a really nice alternative for the heico odin bodykit


can be purchased over http://www.stylingfabriken.se/
(no advertisement, just information guys...
)

and finally, some pictures. too bad that it won't be possible to mount that kit over here in germany, because it most likely has no TÜV-certificate








cheers,
martin

Re: (sanatarium)

I just saw this thread. I like the rear and sideskirt, but the front grilles are not my style. It definitely does have the C30 like lip, but I like mine more.

I too like you design better, but I think the front would look a lot better if the mesh was black and not silver.

Photoshop any one????

Re: (carreragt7)

Also, something that slightly bothers me is how the front lip doesn't tie into the sideskirts very well. The whole kit almost looks like it was a mix and match of different kits, the rear and skirts almost don't match up either: the rear has no real curving to it like the other pieces...Still like it though, it would look sick with my quad tips that I am still waiting to put on. But like someone said above, shipping the item would cost probably the same -if not more- than the item itself. I'll just make my own.

Re: (mad matt)

The more I look at the front it looks like they basically took a mold of the whole C30 front, making it in one piece instead of two, and cut out the different shape for the fog area. The front really wouldn't be that hard to do, I just think the front vents are too curved for my liking.
And I agree with Matt, a Heico or dubstop grille would make it much better looking, especially if all the front grilles had matching mesh.



The vents look a lot like the vents of the top C30 with the rest of the bumper looking more like the bottom C30. Also, I just realized the front lips are different. When I was researching the front lip I never came across two different lips for the C30, just the stock lip and the sport (R Design)...I think the top one is the concept.

The sides are nice and clean. Not a fan of the front or the rear though. They have the right idea, in that it's sort of clean, and they didn't overstyle it, But the lines look way off, it's too wavey in the center, and the exhaust cutouts are too big.

Lord knows I've seen better, but I've seen worse. Not that I could do any better than that, but imo it needs work.

And this is the second PR S40 that I've seen with mismatching paing on the bumper!

Re: (mofolicious)



thought about the dubstop grill myself... the photoshop isn't perfect, but what the heck...

like it a lot more than the original one, right now...

and I agree, front and rear don't really match with the sideskirts...

Let's all make our own custom kits! I've been kicking around sideskirt and rear ideas, any outside input would be awesome.
