People seem to take notice of the airdam much more than the skirts. I think it's because the airdam is frickin' loud when it scrapes, that and it's a huge white expanse of plastic. I think it gets the attention of the younger guys b/c of it's almost "racer" appearance.

About a week ago I got the first comment about the skirts from an old guy in a store that I frequently work in. I was passing him in the stock room and he stops me "Is that you're little white car out there?" me: "the civic? yeah." him: "those wheel covers are really neat looking!"

I can't help thinking that they're much more likely to be appreciated by the older crowd, those that grew up around all the Cadillacs, Buicks, Oldsmobiles, etc that had rear wheel skirts from the factory.
