I don't know if you're lacking intelligence, but I'm pretty sure you're the only person to have ever looked at that lip and made a connection to it with a '96 civic. Yea this is a public forum where speaking your opinion is encouraged, but that doesn't change the fact that your opinion is unappreciated

then get the moderator to stop being immature

And I believe that connecting two similar looking parts would be showing more intelligence than not realizing that two parts look the same? lmao

Reading comprehension, you need it.

I never said they don't look alike. I was astounded that you basically called it a civic lip replica.

Where did I call it a replica of a civic? All I said is that it reminds me of a civic with a type r front lip lol

When I see a civic that is modded it either has an outrageously ricey body kit, or a lip on it. The lip is always either a type r lip that looks like simsima's car, or a mugen lip. At least where I live.

I could be wrong though so feel free to show me where i'm wrong

Khoalty is pretty good and I would recommend looking at the LED smoked corners and LED smoked side markers. I just got them and love them.

For bulb type you have to pop one of yours out now, on our site on the corner product page there is a picture of both of them, so you know what one it is. You can use the sylvania bulb type guide but for E46 corner bulb types it's known to been wrong a few times!

Any questions on our products feel free to email or open a live chat on our site! Sales@Khoalty.com THanks

Smoked corners and sides are on the way. I also am in the process of redoing the grills with plasti dip. Figured I'd give it another chance before dumping 50+ on new grills
