Don't worry, 73...I'LL say what's on your mind...you know me! :D

I swear, if you guys all go buy a riced out body kit for your Olds' like the one in that picture I'm gonna hunt down each and every one of you and smack some Olds sense back into you...I can see a mild, tasteful body kit on a Delta or Ciera, but CMON GUYS!!! :help:


If you want a Honda....GO BUY A DAMNED HONDA!!!!!! :lol:


ARRRRGGGHHHH!!!! Just the THOUGHT of a body kit like THAT on an OLDS makes me wanna

Yo, I dont want my olds to look 'ricey', but i do want to keep the car since its my 1st car, and has a sick system, and ppl like chillin in it and boxing it. (u know 'seshin')

Anyway, Ya like i just dont like the car so plain, and high off the ground, I wont stop at a kit and think it looks good, and i dont want to stand out soo much, I just want some newer bumpers and something added to the sides for a new look. Somethin tasteful, classy and still keeping the car in a similar style.

I think i want to keep the car, and put some $$ into it instead of getting a new car for now , I think with the kit, tint, new paint, rims, my Eibach springs (once installed), headlight conversion, tail light conversion (whole ass end), door handle swap, shaved back doors, new grill, new exhaust and some other stuff here and there could look pretty good. And its not like I have a 2.5 Litre Quad in her either. ( I want to see if a GM 3.8L series II supercharged engine could fit in also ) I want to take my dad's engine out of his Grand Prix GTP supercharged, and give him mine, see if he wouldnt notice. HAHAH ... but that engine would make this car FLY!

then adding some Airbags (no, not the glovebox kind), and new interior (dash, and everythign)

I dont know guys, I think the guys at Knights Performance might be able to use some help designing the kit so if anyone car draw or photoshop good, giver' a whirl

Im gonna get my bro to do some sketchin for me, hes pretty artistic and I know he can design something cool.


Anyway if things dont work out with this car, I will be moving on.. cuz I am gettin tired of it the way it is now...

If anyone wants to contact other manufactures for a cheaper kit, or something better, DO IT UP, ill pre-order a kit....

Haha...stroker....saves the day... :lol:

Oh yea...and the Intrigue body kit...Knightsperformance is selling it for $750.99 USD, oh and then shipping is only $300! :shock:
That's $1050.99 :roll:
Uhh...so I am guessing the same applies for the Ciera body kit...so only $1036.11 USD for the Ciera kit...

Let's see....you could either buy some huge a$$ bling bling rims for that money, soup the engine up :lol: (soup it up :) ), you could buy and install a nice stereo system ( 8) ), you get get a sweet a$$ custom paint job/body work, you could get your interior redone.....leather wrap the seats.....yea....lots things you could do with that money.

In my opinion, what would look nice is a nice spoiler (not ricey), maybe some mild ground effects like the Ciera GT had, and maybe even some functional hood scoops...get some nice cold air running through the engine....

yeah, for the price, it might be cheaper to take a course in fibreglassing and then form your own, the way YOU want it :-)

i'm pretty happy w/ my 89 International series kit. If I think about the way that the knight's kit would be on a ciera I imagine it would be like a 93/94 Cutlass Eurosport from mexico or a lumina Z34 w/ the duals out the back of course. A kit like that would be great it would keep in theme w/ the car and look good. truthfully if they made a replica 94 Cutlass Eurosport kit I would guarantee a purchase they are awesome!! By the way erebuni makes a spoiler for the ciera it's $200 shipped and looks exactly like the eurosport's spoiler! Bad thing is they have 1 left and I'm buying it, they should make more. Go here to see it
erebuni Ciera spioler

Ok...lemme get this straight....first you say you want this...

"I just want some newer bumpers and something added to the sides for a new look. Somethin tasteful, classy and still keeping the car in a similar style."

THEN you want to change the following:
headlight conversion, tail light conversion (whole ass end), door handle swap, shaved back doors, new grill, new exhaust and some other stuff here and there could look pretty good. Airbags (no, not the glovebox kind), and new interior (dash, and everythign)

Ok...WTF??? What the heck happened to "Somethin tasteful, classy and still keeping the car in a similar style."?

Where'd the Olds go? :shock:

"Yo, I dont want my olds to look 'ricey'"

Dude,......... ahhh hell, you aren't gonna listen anyways.... #-o

BTW, Brando....I see my attempts to turn you into a cynical bastard such as myself are going VERY well!!! :wink:

=D> WAY TO GO BRO!!!!! :thumbup:
