It's not so much the weight of the kit as it is the aerodynamic drag that probably killed the 1/4, assuming all else being equal. This is not to say that body kits don't add weight to a car.

Obiviously it depends how big of a kit your getting and what its made out of. A big fiberglass kit is obiviously gonna weight more than a urethane kit.

I didnt notice any weight disadvantages with my WW RS kit and I am sure an OEM kit doesnt slow you down to much. A bigmouth fiberglass front end will sure slow you down..and (IMO) make your car look ugly at the same time.

Plus the weight gain makes it worst if you plan to mold things to your car like the sideskirts of if you decide to shave a lot of things on the car.
