what to do with my ae85

Postby doin donuts » Thu Jan 28, 2010 10:33 pm

hey all, i know people will say that its my choice but im interested to know others thoughts..

i have an ae85 levin and i have a full vertex kit, iv been thinking bout not fitting it and just running with front and side lips instead, subtle but affective...heres some pics to have a look at..

this is the kit i have or do i go without....

I personally think no kit, as I like the subtle lines of the AE
:D

**but in saying that, if I could get my hands on a Jblood kit, id be all over it like a school girl on prom night**

My main point is the sides of the car.
Without skirts, it has a 'rounds off to the underside of the car' look, which IMO, doesn't look very good.
However, the skirts in that kit sort of flare out too much.
Something a bit more subtle would look good.

Something like this:

Agree with you.
It can be down to personal preference really. If it was me (and provided I don't have to deal with any nasty drive ways) I'd have it slamed with vertex kit. It could look a bit funny if you can not have it that low to try and stop damage.

Don't see many with kits in NZ, so I say do it for that reason :)

Looks pretty good 8)

Though, you will have to have the wheels / ride height to pull it off properly imo.
