Yes. If you want Type R side skirts, you have to have original fenders. Aftermath Type R style fenders aren't made to do it. Still not clear in whether the Type R fenders will bolt up but there are some different brackets that I have to have to make it work.
I got them from Ikon Motorsports. I was going to post a link but when I went on this morning, they don't have them listed. I don't know what's so special about these but they seem to be hard to find at a reasonable price
It's a 2019 Sport. What's the aero kit? I'm looking for the fenders because I want the skirt to stick out and match the rear fender flares I have for it. I've seen two different opinions on Type R factory fenders. Some say they bolt.up, some say they won't so I don't know.
First, it's my car and I'll do whatever I want to do to it. Second, why did I not buy a Type R? Because I put 35k + miles a year on my car. And spending 35 to 45 k for car I'm going to wear out in a few years isn't worth it.
I'm a little late to the conversation but as far as changing the front bumper, fender conversions, Type R spoiler, etc, It doesn't mean you're trying to recreate a Type R. People have modified cars since there were cars. I say if you like the looks, go for it.
