the answer is still no. it's not about how it fits or how good it looks, it's about the mentality of doing it right. considering the class this car is, i think it deserve the legitimate stuff even if it's more. it's all about supporting what you believe

my problem with those front only setup, like g answer and quest, is that yes the front is nice, but then the sides and rear doesn't really flow that well anymore, seems like you got something in the front and everything else missing

Just because you use a G-Answer front does not mean that you can't use AC, Pheonix Power, Tom's, etc sides... just find something the right distance down and get that!

haha thanks henry, what can I say?

Hopefully I can clear this up the best I can. I believe Evolution is the parent company of a bunch of JDM body kit manufactorers and Autocouture and exclusive are two of them. I think this because my kit is an full autocouture kit and has an evolution serial number on it. Hopefully I am right.

Nice tally of all the SC kits out there Richard!

if you look closely, it says evolution.

Yes, you are right, Steve.
Auto Couture is a division of Evolution Inc.
The box of my front lip actually says G-Square which is under G-Corporation.
I had to go to their web site to figure out which one is the parent company.

Great thread. IMO the sc430 absolutely needs a body kit. The extreme curve surfaces need the depth provided by a kit. Now if only something could be done with the head and tails.
