Have you looked into them already? Cause it seems like you're on a budget, and if you have absolutely no idea what they cost, you may be disillusioned at the price of buying the piece, having it paint matched, and having it installed. Although some - SOME - pieces can look tasteful. My advice, stay away from the wings... Of course, I could be way off on all this, cause I really have no idea what body cladding runs on a Nissan, I just know it can easily get expensive.

I don't know exactly what those 200's look like, but i'd also be hesitant about putting a lot of body kit on one of the 80's japanese sportscars... just kinda... not the way they were designed to look.... I dunno...

do you have any pics of the one you've found?

dave, they look similar to the 240sx's...not quite the same, but not too far off.

The one I found is on my buddy's friend's 200SX, but he said that they might not make them anymore ... No pics and I think it looks a little over-the-top for such a small car ... All I want is a nice, fairly conservative body kit that enhances the appearance of the car rather than trying to make it look agressive.

Do you guys know of any sites or are you guys just torturing me ? LOL

Here's the only one i found...these kits can get expensive, though.
this one is $786, plus about $200 S/H, $300-$500 for paint, and $100-$150 for installation.
Also, if you do get a body kit do it right - test fit it BEFORE you paint it to make sure everything lines up nice and so you don't have to drill your nice fresh paint.
