When it comes to EG9 or Civic SR4, Mugen and Vision Technica were back then the well known Honda after market tuner and body kit producer. To most of the public out there, Mugen is more popular compared to the Vision Technica, and in some cases here, most of them were not aware on the existence of Vision Technica as one of the entity in Japan that support and coloured up the after market scene in this world. Unlike Mugen, Modulo or Spoon, those entity are well established and well known, as most of the new Honda Model, will introduce the Mugen or Modulo as the option for their customer to choose. It's all about the marketing strategy.
I believed, this sharing is worth for the EG9 & SR4 enthusiast out there as their additional knowledge in doing the decision making on the modification concept to be opted. Both world have their own uniqued identity and well matched with the EG9.
Lets we take a look on the EG9 Vision Technica Lip first. In a glance, it looks like an EG9 Mugen Lip, but if you look carefully, there is difference in term of the curve at the middle of the lip. Well, as the name goes, EG9 Vision Technica Lip was quite rare and very hard to find if compared to EG9 Mugen Lip. To be honest, i only managed to found it once during my active period as a Honda Part Time Halfcut Runner.
This is the original EG9 / SR4 Vision Technica Lip. In a glance, it looks like a Mugen Lip but if you look carefully, there is penetrated wall at the the both end. Further, the curve at the middle is slightly different.
Now we take a look at the original Mugen EG9 Lip - see the difference:
This is another comparison between Vision Technica Lip and Original SR4 / EG9 OEM Lip:
It is up to you on what concept that you want to choose. Here, the comparison is limited to Mugen, Vision Technica and the Original OEM Lip due to the limitation of my knowledge. Out there, there were lot more entity that produced the body kit for EG9 / SR4 like Bomex, Js Racing and etc.
After all, as long as you satisfied and happy on your modification concept, it's done. We are human and when it come to the modification concept, it is very subjective, there is no right or wrong.
In the next post, i will share the SR4 / EG9 with Vision Technica Lip installed. For the benefit of knowledge to those who visit and read my blog.
