I'm planning to buy a C-West side skirt for my RSX. Anybody here had a problem with the genuine C-West? I know both are made from fiberglass & I heared that the replica needs some touch-ups & will end up having wavy surfaces. How about the genuine skirt, does it need some touch-ups too?

I have the real c-west lip, no they are not fiberglass, they're urethane. My sides and rear are replica and it's fiberglass. differences is, real c-west is urethane and very expensive and replica is fiberglass and very cheap. fitting aint perfect. if u got the money get the real ones.

i got authentic cwest sides, its fiberglass not urethane
:iamwiths: i have the replica front and sides. the only way to tell the difference is on the front b/c of the small triable indentation, i cant tell the difference on the sides, same material and design. my replica required NO modifications to fit, just had to drill the holes (

if u have a good body shop get the replica and throw in a few bucks to do any fittment work.

If not don't mess with it i've only seen a handful of replicas that will look right. An if youre paying good money it should look damn good right?

bro im not really sure. i went outside and measure with my fingers. the front sits 1.5 or close to 2inches lower than the sides. I can drive almost anywhere tho without scraping.

WOW thx bud

1.5" - 2"???
when you said either real or replica will not flow w/ the sides... that is because the sides are replica right?
So the real side skirts WILL match up w/ the replica? (*As in the replica sides are the exact same dimension as to the real?)

my front just sits a little lower than the sides. its a replica though. and i noticed the front of my sides i installed a little low. so either replica or real will have a lower front than sides.

Yea, I researched the board and found the replica front sits lower than the replica sides... now knowing even the real cwest lip sits lower than the replica sides, I am just wondering if the REAL cwest side will match up w/ the REAL or the REPLICA front???

Ok basically... does the replica sides have the same dimension as the real one? As in height wise

yes. one thing about replica is that it matters where u get it from. some might fit right and some might be a little off or worse. Both are made of fiberglass. I wanted the real front c-west lip because it's urethane.
