Stay FAR away from Corvettemods. They have a terrible reputation here. Just search for all the threads about them. Hell, I ordered from them just once and they screwed me over. Buyer beware!

Same picture and parts are at Eckler's as well as several other vendors. I just used your note of " c5-r race skirt kit" and found multiple listings.

I have the C5R kit and cannot think of having a C5 without one. Everyone thinks it came stock on the 50th anniversary Corvette. This kit came from Mid America and fitment/quality excellent. Could not use the chin spoiler here as the roads are not good.

Sooooo, you don't think the car looks extremely odd without the front lip spoiler? Just curious how you can be satisfied with the front bumper being so much higher than the rest of the car.

Nailed it! LOL! I agree 100%. Those things are huge and look just like what the ricers used to run back in 2001 or so. "Subtle" is better than "bold" when it comes to C5 body upgrades. The OEM lines are soooo clean. Why jack them all up?

There will always be some people that don't like this or that...what you have to remember is I like it very much. It looks very good without the front chin spoiler...When I see a stock C5 go by it looks so meek and mild...IMHO. If you see the response when out driving it may change your opinion. Never once did it garner a disparaging response as here on the forum...odd?! If you follow the lines on the side skirt you will see they compliment the stock lines nicely. Perhaps the pic don't do justice? Why did you not do a comparison to a Lada or a Skoda?? Yea the wheelchair van got 4 wheels too...just like the Corvette. Have a nice day.

It might be an age thing too...



vs







I guess to me the C5R kit just seems like a "body kit" rather than an "enahncement" like the C7 carbon skirts and lip...
