If it doesn't look right or is non functional it's useless...
Well, like I said, you have to think about when he probably put the kit on (at least 2000, probably earlier). I'll bet getting any kit from Japan was probably 3-times the amount of money it is now and I seriously doubt there were any knock off/replicas of other kits around. Actually, if you look at the link, the date is on the link and it's from 1999. Hell, I was just getting on the internet at that time let alone owning some souped up single turbo FD (not that I do now either).
That was also way before Fast & the Furious.
Back in the day, Veilside was the kit to have. Things have changed though over the years.

I don't think it is now. Last I heard, Steve had at least one stock CYM R1 (maybe two) which I'm sure sees the street more than his drag-monster. He's on the forum as Pluto, so maybe he'll pop in here.
I have that body kit since 1996. The style is getting old but with my $5k paint job, its hard to justify changing it. I'm actually thinking about the new VeilSide D1 GT kit which seems to look pretty cool but they won't be available until May.

Veilside was the ****. It's still the **** in Japan. Back in 96, that kit was the most sought-after one. They used to only make bodykits for cars that cost $40k or more. Now the market has changed and they are forced to make kits for cheaper cars.
When a car can kick your *** like nothing, it really does not matter what kind of kit it has because all you can see is the tail light :P

I have always like the C1-Combat nose. I think it gives a nice, aggressive, edgy look to the seven. I don't care much for the skirts or tail. Compare it to the C2 F&F nose and it stomps it. I actually bought one used, but shipping from CA was more than what the guy was selling it for, so I bailed.
Although, looking at it with Steves good paint, I don't like what they did to the part above the turn signals. If you look at the first picture, you can see little horizontal creases above the top edge, and it looks kind of bulbous there. If they had blended that better, it would have looked nicer.
