I was lucky enough to inherit a 2006 RSX from my parents when I got my license several months ago. It had previously been my brother’s, who had gotten into a minor accident denting the hood. Once it was passed down to me, I didn’t have the money to fix it, so left it as is. Soon after receiving the car, I got into a minor accident leaving my right quarter panel dented and the whole car covered in scratches. Poor thing. Now that I’ve worked a steady job for a few months now, I’m ready to give it some desperately needed TLC. Along with a new hood and several performance mods (CAI, pulley kit, Headers/exhaust, Ignition coils and spark plugs, engine mounts, coilovers, etc.), I found the GT300 Body Kit and new on sight that I wanted it. However, I noticed the kit is designed for 2002-2004. Logically, I don’t see a major difference between those years and the ‘06. Is it possible to utilize the kit on my car? I like this kit specifically because it’s inexpensive and covers most, if not all, the exterior damage the car has. Is it possible, and if so, is the kit worth the $1000-ish price tag? What other kits should I look into, if at all?
Note: I’m generally a novice at this sort of thing. I consider myself a very amateur mechanic, but I’m not brand new and I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty.
Thanks in advance, guys!

LOL, shit looks straight out of 2003. A body kit shouldn't be used to cover damage. And no, it won't fit your 06.

Just fix your car and keep it clean.

Fair enough. The styling is pretty dated. Either way, are there any quality wide body kits out there for the RSX? I appreciate well-done wide cars.
