A body kit contains aftermarket parts to make modifications to a car's appearance. These kits typically include front and back bumpers, spoilers and side skirts.

Thanks to the popularity of body kits, manufacturers routinely design factory models with kits pre-installed.

When purchasing a body kit, decide whether it will be installed piece by piece or all at once. If installed at once, a matching kit can be purchased.
