Thanks! Another concern of mine is that if I go sportlines, then I'm more than likely going to have to buy the adjustment kit which is just more $$$.
is anyone concerned about the stock shocks/struts after lowering it?

Of course. They were not designed for a shorter/stiffer spring.

They will wear out at a faster rate.

My plan is to go with a coilover setup.

Ooh +1 for the splitter! Depends on the price though tbh.
Looks like retail will fall right around $300 give or take judging by their other Honda splitters. Hoping we get a deal with the group buy.

The stock lip remains, the splitter bolts under it using existing bolt hole locations.
I'll keep an eye out for the group buy - I've got a feeling you/Aeroflow will get one or two dozen buyers right off the bat based on other convos I've seen from this forum's HB owners.

Side skirts and rear diffuser are both complete and ready for ordering!
Note: Side skirt pictured are designed for non-sport models.
Another version is being created which will be flat with no fin.

Sport version will most likely be flat with no fin towards the rear. It will simply flair out at the rear.

Group buy still on!

Great build with quality parts! Refreshing in this day and age where almost everyone wants to use the cheapest parts available.

Have you seen them in person? Which one looks better in your opinion?

I appreciate that. I feel the same way. Everyone seems quick to buy the $90 lip here, $500 rims there, misc. ebay parts and it snowballs to a mess.

They haven't been made yet ;)
