Body Kit vs. Lip Kit — The Best Way to Enhance Your Car
Your car is more than just a mode of transportation. It’s an expression of your style, speed, and way of life.
For all those who love their cars as much as we do, accessorizing your car is an obvious must. But for all those who also work as hard as we do, finding a quick and affordable way to accessorize is also a priority.
Before making a decision about which accessories to buy for you car, you may want to do some research regarding your options. To help you out, we’ve sorted the differences between body kits and lip kits and laid out the pros and cons of each.
For those who don’t know, a body kit will typically include a variety of different bumpers and/or underbody spoilers that can be fit on your car to optimize performance. Body kits come in a number of different styles, and each package contains a different combination of features to enhance the aerodynamics of your car.
Though body kits offer a great deal of variety and customization, there are a few drawbacks.
Self-installation on body kits, unlike lip kits, can be difficult and lead to damage on your car. Parts of the car may be broken and need to be replaced professionally, which could end up costing more in the long run. With body kits, car owners typically work with a mechanic or auto body shop to get the installation done. Installation of a four piece body kit may cost between $450 and $1200.
There may also be some issues with modifications. Sometimes, body kits may require you to apply additional modifications to the features available in order to fit your specific car. If that’s the case, you may need to contact local officials to make sure your modifications are “street legal” if they’re particularly drastic.
Like a body kit, a lip kit can enhance the look of your car and provide aerodynamic balance. A lip kit consists of one single feature, the lip spoiler, which is installed beneath the bumpers and the side skirts of your car. In addition to helping with the aerodynamic balance and loop, a lip can also provide your car with added protection from scrapes and normal driving conditions.
