Need a Little Help Deciding

So a buddy of mine is selling his GT body kit and he would sell me everything I need for cheap.

This is what My car pretty much looks like right now (isnt my car but i dont have side shots like this)



Now with teh body kit the car would look this



What you guys think? should i get the GT kit? I was originally planning Stalker front, cobra sides and rear (like below) but Ive been thinking about it lately and I dont know if i want to go that route any more.



So lets hear them opinions

I would need better pics of the GT kit I can't really notice much of a difference besides the side scoop thing.

nope...

Cobra > Saleen (at least the side skirts heh, like the ones you have already, judging by that picture?) > LX > SVO > Toyota > GT body kit

I'm not a fan of the GT body kit at all

Re: Need a Little Help Deciding

I don't like the Saleen rear bumper either.

My favorite look for a GT is the entire '93 Cobra kit. A LX however, needs nothing but the stock body panels. Less is more.

Re: Need a Little Help Deciding

See the thing with me is I always wanted to GT but the LX was right price for me at the time.

I do plan on buying another fox once im done with this one and the less is more theory would go to the notch, cause well notch pretty much owns me haha

Re: Need a Little Help Deciding

The GT kit is seen everywhere, and the Cervinis Stalker kit that you show in the last pic is.... meh.

Honestly, I'd keep the Saleen kit that you've got right now. They are easily one of the best ones out there because the front end is killer and the sides aren't big and bulky like the GTs are. Sure, the rear end isn't spectacular, but we've all seen worse.

One thing I've never liked is the big whale tail spoiler however. I'd suggest going after the 93 Cobra spoiler (also from Cervini's)

If you're set on replacing the entire body kit, 93 Cobra is the only way to go.
