    I'm not really planning on putting a kit on mine, but here are a couple of examples i have found so far for any one that is interested

    Vouge Kit

    Crux

    Not Sure But I Like It The Best

    Another kit, i think it is made by wald?

    As for the questions, it your air bags blow you are up for some cash to get a whole new unit fitted, and i think Mitsubishi have to do it?

    But i don't think that the sensors are in the front bar, they are deeper in, i helped my dad put a bull bar on his pajero which has airbags, we did it in the shed and had no prob's. A lot of cars have airbags, and have never heard of people haveing issues.

    Fitting kits can be done in the back yard, but if you want it to line up good, and unless you can spray it yourself, you are better off just going to a body repairers and get it done right

    If anyone want's to add to that then feel free

    click on library to veiw the kits,

    i had the dolphin aero kit priced up,
    around 5000$ for the full kit, + fitting and painting!

    you do pay for quality thou,

    theres alot of cheap knock off's around, and you have to watch out for US spec kits,
    which wont fit without extensive mods to the kit.


    im getting a evo 5 style kit from www.speedfactory.co.nz
    its costing me $750 for just the front, still need painting and fitting on top of that,

    Actually it looks a lot like a colour-coded Super-VR4 kit...

    I don't think these two are Legnums. I dunno what the first one is, but the second one looks like a Mazda.

    Edit/ The first one is a Nissan Avenir and the second is a Nissan Wingroad

    i'm quite fond of the crux, and the evo style kits..
    crux looks nice, but the evo one looks tough...

    The Dolphin one is my favourite. There was a white Leggie that went through the auctions last week with that very bodykit.

    I have that kit on mine (check the photos on the link below).
    It definately grows on you. I love the sideskirts and rear apron the most.

    Yeah the dolphin kit is definitely the best, I prefer it with the stock grill though.

    We see Wingroads and Avenir/Experts all the time over in NZ, don't you guys get those either?

    nup! :(

    Yeah My stagea has the Dolphin front and sides but unfortunately is a bit mismatched in that it still has the dayz rear... which does not go as low as the dolphin rear would have so the lines do not flow as well from the skirt through the back wheel to the rear - it suddenly jumps up a bit :(

    does anyone know if the galant and legnum share the same size of rear bumper?

    Cause I only found body kit for legnum and none for galant...

    maybe someone can show picture of body kit for galant....

    Not sure if anyone noticed, but Vogue also do an Aero Bonnet ala EVO style. Good price too at only Y70000 for FRP ;)

    AHA! That's where I need to befriend a wrecker to bring it in for me.... I think I could arrange it. I don't have the coin for it at the moment though.

    Brent, It's fibreglass(FRP). they also have it in a CFRP (carbon fibre) but that almost doubles the price.
