Default NEW BODY

Ok here is the problem I am faced with!!
I just bought a Yokomo drift car, and am looking to make it look as realistic as possible!!
So I was looking for a body to fit it!
Any recommendations? (light buckets would be welcomed and actually wanted but not absolutely necessary)

O have looked at:

* Pro-line (nothing that looks to scale to me)
* HPI (some look nice, but no light buckets)
* Yokomo (nice but just wanna see what else is out there)
* Hot Works (cool but again like yokomo wanna see all my options)

Other than that I am open to options!!
if possible post links to the body!!
LMK what bodies I am missing, and if have any you would recommend over another one!!
I just want to see all of my options before I go out, and spend my money on a body cause scale bodies are not cheap!!

HPI makes light buckets buddy =)

HPI Racing bodies feature:

Photorealistic die-cut premium vinyl decals that include window frames, headlight, grille, tail lights and more, plus official logos!
Many of our newest bodies have 3-D light buckets are included for added realism! <<<<Doesn't say which ones though =(
Overspray film and pre-cut vinyl window masks to make painting fast and simple
Decal instruction sheet for decal placement
Dimple marks for body post drill locations
An optional, realistic racing wing or spoiler is provided with the body
0.030" clear polycarbonate plastic for durability and long life
Official licensing, approved by the manufacturer

Oh, and BTW what exactly are you looking for? Which car? Because both MY HPI RX-8 and my 350Z came with light buckets and paint stickers for covering windows, and decals and all that good stuff, but it would help us help you, if we knew exactly what we were looking for body wise....like what models to choose from.

That's what I thought to, but when I spoke to my hobby shop, all of thier bodies don't have light buckets, so I though it might have just been a misprint on line!
