Aspec Kit Mod's

I've bought the ASPEC Sarona lip and ATLP Trunk Lid Lip from Heeltoe Auto. I get my 05 TL back this Saturday and I need some input from ANYONE!! Do I need the Side skirt spoilers? And what about the ASPEC Rear Spoiler? I want the aspec look, but not sure if I wanna put down more money. The front lip and the trunk lid lip already cost me $500- $600.

you don't NEED anything..

The rear spoiler is key though, I would have personally done that instead of the trunk lid.

Do you need them....no.
If you want the A-Spec look....yes
Trunk spoiler could have waited IMO

Thanks EvilVirus!! Here in Northwest Arkansas there's not very many 3G TL's driving around. The ones I've seen are all driven by the elderly and are stock. If I really want to go thru with the aspec look, I think I can get by with the side skirts but ThoiBoi is right, the rear does make a different.

A TL with the front and rear without the sides sticks out like a sore thumb to me. It just looks soo much better with the full kit

Does it really stick out that bad?! I didn't think it would make a difference.

I'm sorry for sounding like a complete noob but I've never really bothered my TL bc I like it just the way it is.(UNTIL I SAW THE ASPEC PACKAGE) Now someone tell me this. How strange would it be if I put on a type S rear bumper spoiler, with the extra wide exhaust ports, and keep the stock dual exhaust? Sometime in the future I might upgrade the exhaust system. Being a college student money is kind of tight right now. I saw the ASPEC Rear and the only different between the Type S and Aspec is that the type s is wider for the quad.

If you do the rear type-s; just go to an exhaust shop and have them weld on the dual tips. Cheap and looks good.

So if I purchase a set of type-s muffler tips from ebay, I can just have a shop weld them onto my base pipes? No other modification needed?

FINALLY!! Someone who has my sort of idea..AAND with pictures!!
Thanks A BUNCH DesertMist! I was gonna get that front spoiler but I didn't like the thought of not having fog lights to go with it. So I ended up getting just a lip.
I noticed your headlights and how new they look! Did you buy a new set?
