ya I guess I am being picky, but I have insane OCD, so if something is out of place, or in this case, seeing a little fiberglass ripple, or small crack etc, really stands out and seems to be magnified X10000!!! I just really love OEM fit, and the design of the m-tech's side openings, and that fact that it would eliminate all my scrapping issues!

with a car like johns or magmd's, there is no room for improvement, you lucky bastards!!!

lol, thanks bro, there's always room. You just gotta be content.

As for OCD, you're right, can't beat OEM fit. Go for it. I guess you can change it later with splitters or something. Just wanted to let you know, I think it looks good with the current kit. It's not something I would've chosen, but I can still appreciate it.

personally never liked duke's kits, middle opening's wayy to wide and flat to begin with and the splitters just throw the corner lines off.
mtech ftw

Sorry, I'm such A newb & STILL confused here lol...

I like mtech better, it gives it a mature look. Duke dynamics is indeed more aggressive, so if aggressive you want.. go duke! if you want a bit modest and different, go mtech!
