body kits

I though maybe if enough people made a list of names (sort of like a petition) and sent it to a manufacture for instance Seibon, maybe they'd make some hood bumpers ect. for the saab 9-2x. I'd like to to get a bumper where I could install some off-roading lights and a different hood. essentially a rally car.

Re: body kits

What they said arrow-up . Your best bet would be to contact a vendor first and see the overhead on doing a small run group buy. Let them do the legwork with the mfg if they believe it's doable(profitable). Then yay/nay organize it.
This car will prolly only ever see mods under it's skin do to it's rarity and short run of production numbers. If we ever see some trick looking 92's they will be fitted with CUSTOM bodywork and not plug and play pieces.

Re: body kits

Re: body kits

I'd get in on this if it was for a nice sublte STI V-limited "style" lip, something a bit less home depot looking  spider

If it's for a BOMEX/VEIL SIDE/F&F style kit, unamused I'll pass!

Re: body kits

seibon probably would make a carbon fiber hood if there was an organized group buy.  my local board, flat4lv.com, organized something like this with seibon.

I thought he said rally car.  Since when do ricers rally?


if you want driving lights, juts stick a couple or 4 in the giant gaping hole under your grille.

i saw a guy with one who gave the fenders another inch or so when i was researching the  92x before i bought mine (December or January)  He had a video and pics, and was claiming it was the only wide body 92x out there, but now i can't find it again.  sad

Re: body kits

A friend of mine started (or helped, hell I dunno) Seibon. . I'm impressed it's made it as far as it has. 
With that said, I hope they don't do anything for our cars, ever.

Ever.


Part of what attracted me to this particular car, over an Impreza, is that it was a tad more unlikely to see riced-out versions of it driving around. smile

I'm with you, this scoop provides way too much visibility.  It also doesn't om nom enough road trash.
