    Yes.

    When I bought my EX, I picked that because it had every option ticked off. I'd rather have those than a bodykit.

    However, I have since added the entire sports kit to the car and it looks better than an ES GT because of the unique front/rear bumpers so yes, it can be done.

    No sir, I went to Holdcroft who did a cracking deal for me. I had side skirts, front and rear bumpers fitted for a price I just couldn't say no to :Thumbup:

    Ring them up and ask them bud, you will be surprised!

    I'm looking into doing the same, I've just purchased a black 2010 Accord Tourer 2.2 I-DTEC Ex (this morning not collected it yet) for all the equiptment, but like the look of the aero kitted cars, so i will be retro fitting the kit at some point but don't want to spend a fortune, i can fit it myself, so does anyone know the cost and availabillity of the ES GT kit?

    I'll get some pics up tomorrow mate.

    Yes, all parking sensors, front and rear work fine.

    No issue with the camera since that is mounted on the trunk, not the bumper.

    Is that just the two side skirts and front splitter? With fitting? :Messed:

    If so, thats a silly price. I paid not much more than that for the entire sports pack that included front and rear bumpers. :Unknown:

    I'd have loved the Mugen kit - sadly, it was a bit OTT for me so went OEM and a little subtler!

    Breakers are the best place for second hand parts.

    OEM prices are sadly, as always, stupidly high. Although you can indeed do what I did and thrash out a deal with our friends at HH.

    Priced skirts at a breaker at £375 both are scuffed and require prep and paint, My local honda dealer just quoted me £525.80 (not sure if they come painted) and he said £600 and odd fitted (was'nt really listening), so if i had to pay to get the 2nd hand ones painted and fitted the price would be the same id say, i'd paint and fit them myself though.
