    Still having trouble finding somewhere to get some body styling parts for my FR-V. Found these and was wondering if anyone had any experience with them or could point me in the direction of a company that could help.

    Thanks all.

    Nothing specific. . Would be nice to be able to check what there is..
    I'm considering a body kit,, nothing too outrageous. Also wanting to lower the suspension.

    The problem I have is actually finding the places to get them from.. all the sites I can find have loads of bits for Civic and Accords but the majority of them don't even have an FR-V section.

    Well all you have to do is look at Mugen Europe's website here is your list of vendors in the uk honda k20 for sale Links - Mugen Euro

    They have nothing listed for the Edix \FR-V ring them and see if they can get it, don't expect them to be cheap they will be insanely expensive.

    I don't like the sound of expensive never mind insanely expensive lol..

    Is there a cheaper option???
    The tss tuning place that I could find that had some stuff, , including the body kit, was around 600 euro.

    Mate make sure this 600 euro kit is made from good quality ABS plastic otherwise the amount of filler and blocking to get them perfect for paint will be a chore.. you can buy them cheap but the paint won't stick on them and then your car will look poor.

    I had the same issue when looking, lots of places not being able to obtain parts any more or couldn't be bothered to dig deep enough. So I ended up going down the genuine Honda route and I'm glad I did, fantastic quality and detail with all fittings included, OK they are not the cheapest but there is no mortification needed to make them fit.
    There is a site in America where they can do the Mugen grill or a copy of it, bit again worked out expensive with delivery for basically a hole in the front of your car lol. I ended up carbon wrapping my grill to take the chrome affect away, but you could choose any colour really if that was an option to you.

    @Bones126 . Was looking at the pics of yours last night. . . Looks excellent .
    Do like what you did with the grill.
    Not a fan of the chrome .. I'm going to be plastidipping the grill , handles and bit on boot.

    Thanks, I was the same with the grill, not keen on the chrome. Was thinking of doing the Handles and the bit on the boot but not in carbon. May have them done in dark chrome at some point.

    Let us know how you get on and post some pics up :Niceone:

    Handles are a pain to wrap and the finish on the boot bit will e a nightmare. . Definitely worth plastidip instead.. hoping to get mine done over the next couple of weeks so will post some pics up when sorted.

    Personally I wasn't quite sure about the matte metallic but it came out quite nice.
