side skirts options

I'm in the market for side skirts, I would like to know what are the options I have. Please don't tell me to use the search function, I tried, it sucks.

1- Reverie ( http://www.sector111.com/ , http://www.seriouslylotus.com/ http://www.reverie.ltd.uk/product_de...code=R01SB0249 )
2- APR ( http://aprperformance.com/index.php?...=252&Itemid=44 )
3- IMRP RACEsills ( www.sector111.com )
4- Trueleo ( http://trueleo.com/EliseSideSkirts.htm )
5- Cantrell (not available anymore) ( http://www.cantrellmotorsport.com/pages/lotus05.htm )
6- HKFever's (soon) ( http://www.pbase.com/hkfever/carbon_fiber )
7- Esta ( http://www.esta-international.com/Pr...skirt%207.html )
8- DIY ( DIY Side Sills )

Is there anything else?

I am also looking for GOOD pictures of Elises with APR or Reverie side skirts...

08 VW GTI
07 Passat wagon
92 Isuzu Stylus RS "Handling by Lotus"
14 Fiat 500L

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Track only? Mainly aesthetics or pure performance? I think the Reverie's are very good looking, but the Racesills appear to be much more functional but probably wouldn't agree with city streets. I have another brand painted and waiting to be mounted. They are similar to the Reverie but my car lives in the country and has yet to see a track. The additional weight will probably outweigh any performance gains, but i thought I would try a set.

A Google search works better than the site search function. i won't tell you to use it, but you might try it.

Good Luck

Good Call MotoGeek. I think that is what I have. (I did buy them some time ago)
I like a lot of HK's stuff, I would see what those look like as far as performance and appearance - probably the best of both worlds! Got any pics HK?

Also keen to see some pics. I hate the look of those huge APR and similar skirts. I'm sure they're functional but they look like something someone found in their backyard on the scrap pile and decided they'd be useful.
