I just finished installing the Lorinser wide body kit - well sorta. The kit was a pain the butt to install so if you go for the wide body definitely take it to a shop. The front fender flares weren't too bad to install but the rear ones were impossible. I ended up taking it to a shop where they charged me $400 to rip them off, reinstall them and repaint them. It still isn't done perfect but the rear fender flares weren't made properly by Lorinser... I emailed them last week and still haven't received a response. I will try notifying them again. The rear fender flares don't match up with the body contours when you look at it closely.

While it was at the shop I had the installer put on window tint... Got him down to $50 to do the side window and the rear window. To my knowledge he used 30% for the rear window and rear side windows (the small ones) and 35% for the side windows (the window that rolls down).

I will see what happens as far as the rear fenders but they are on at least. Just disappointed in the craftsman ship from Lorinser. I expected better from them.

Here are some pictures, enjoy!

Looks great. I especially love the rear lip on the rim.
Did you lower on Eibach's? Have you considered cutting a coil on the rear to even out the gap?

No spring upgrades yet. The front are extremely low with about 1-1.5cm gap to the front bumper. I would only install rear springs since it's so high in the back. I've never cut coils before but that might be an option.

you cant cut the springs on a smart they are a conical shape, you can compress them though..
