^^ all of those reasons are body kits are s**t!

Exactly why I have a lot of hours ahead of me to get the aero front bar and side skirts to fit properly on my GTi
also it doesn't really help that you got the kit from and fitted by carmate...

Mate just walk out - plenty of other places to get stuff done and they'll probably do a better job.

It looks like every other kit on a new swift ,#hit!!.
The nice rounded lines of the swift have been totally ignored and replaced with a angular nightmare, the only good thing about it is its made from fibreglass so when you bottom it out on a speed bump it will crack and fall into peices, then you can easily replace it with the std bodykit.

Not a fan of the front personally, but the rear of the kit looks good.

I reckon the front bar would look much nicer without the angular bits, and some contour reshaping to suit the lines of the headlights.
