I like the kit and the red does give it a sporty CTR-ish vibe.

At first I thought they messed up and got the wrong colored parts. I think it's starting to grow on me though. What do you guys think?
I wanted to say thanks for posting the pics, I know the first bunch of comments are negs, but I liked it enough I added it to my spec.
It gets a lot of compliments in the real world :)

The dealer did phone me up to check I still wanted it as it only comes in red, I was relieved because I was worried they might colour code it to the white body!

Can you tell me if your Aero kit has a gap between the red of the kit and the white of the body where you can see the foam core of the kit?
If you've got a nice flush fit, could you post me a couple of pics I can take to my dealer when I show the sales manager what I think is bad fitting.

I had mine painted gloss black

Ah, now THAT is pretty.
Looks better with the black color trim rather than bright red.
Like you already changed the amber turn signal to clear color and got window tint... also see you vinyl wrapped your roof XD
Now you just need better looking AM black rims to fit with the color scheme you have going.
Also... don't forget to add a little dark metallic red to make the colors pop!

Black+White and Black+Silver are best colors for this hatch IMHO.
Other colors don't match with this design...

Any chance you could post me a picture of the seam between the aero kit and the body of the car?
I'm having trouble with getting my dealer to fit the kit with foam filler showing in a gap.


Your car looks pretty sweet too, great job.

Some of the foam fillers would still show especially in front kit (it rained so my car is a lil bit dirty)

Thanks a lot, thats great. It seems to be pretty much what I have. Now I can lay off my dealer and just get them to put the foam back in that they removed.

the sport hatch comes with an all black lip kit for the front rear and the black sideskirts, maybe look into getting those instead. not sure if they come with everything you would need to install them as the accessory kit would though. I have an Si with the kit and the red lip has grown on me but they side and stuff would be a bit much

looks wrong, out of place, and looks like its not meant to be there..although they are the accessory body kits

might look better on black but on white, it would be better if it was gloss black imo
Anybody know where I can find a kit like that for my 2017 Honda Civic SI sedan?
