there are no aftermarket fenders for the Bonne...they will be a custom job....If they were functional to remove engine bay heat that would be neat.....

there is also no aftermarket body kits for out cars either... the closest thing you can get is an SSE/i body cladding

You want all opinions..

I dont think thats rice, rice is more extreme, and the driver act like his car, do flyby, and crap like this,( now when someone see a body kit on a compact car its automaticaly a ricer, i think some are really nice, just a small original touch, that make the car look out of ordinary)

but i think its ugly, doesnt fit at all, very sorry, but if you like it thats good, i will not tell you to remove it .


Theres no reason to remove it if you like it.

It look like a bad remake of a Superbird.

Sorry, and goodluck.

Bro, if I could make a suggestion?

Lower the wing a bit. That'* my problem with it. Not the shape, but how high off the car it is.. it just looks kinda out of place. If you're happy with it, then ignore me though.

As for custom body stuff, have you seen the SSEi cladding? I'm newly very well acquianted with it and I happen to think its more than enough aggressive for my tastes.

The stock spoiler on our cars actually serves a purpose. It breaks up the airflow over the tail so you don't create a vacuum back there. I've seen this in 'dew trails' in the mornings with my car on several occasions. You can track the air movement after a short trip.

That thing is simply giving in to the pointless ricer tuner market. Where they spend money and add weight to make their cars LOOK faster. The Fast and the Furious was FICTION. By driving around with that thing on your car, you're giving every decent person out there the preconcieved notion that you are from that crowd, and that crowd is not liked.

Is your antenna bent backwards or is it supposed to be like that? (waiting for the SLE guru to pick that one up)

If you want your car to look better, my first thought would be to clean the wheels. It'll make the car look 10x better, trust me. Some decent tire shine helps too.
The little stuff makes more of a statement than the big stuff.

exoticwooddash.com has chrome/black/gold fender flares if thats what you're looking for.. they have it for the bonnie, rocker panels too that are shiny or black.

as for the wing I said in that last topic its too high for one.. and the shape is wierd, the stock spoilers do the trick just fine (look sporty and low-profile)
