if its authentic -- about 400 -750

if its fake - about 600 - 1500 depending on fitment.

about $1000 to fit & paint it CORRECTLY. add about $150-$200 more for molding sideskirts.

the correct way to paint your kit is to "blend in" the pain to your car--which involves painting most of the exterior withint about 2 feet of your bodykit. thumbsup

that's a sweet deal. thumbsup

i hope to pay a similar price if and when i get a bodykit. my ex gf's dad (of 3 years) owns a bodyshop (still get along great with the rents) and my current gf's dad (of 2 years) works at a very good bodyshopt for the last 17 years thumbsup

WHATS!? That seems a lot to me, but then again, i would want to install in myself and save some cash. That's what I try to tell everyone. what kit did you get?

I'm going to pay $2400. But that's with molding and a new color too! I'm getting my Celica painted some yellow color with pearl , preferably the Solar Yellow 03+ Celi's came in. The original price was $5000...but I'm sponsored! It would help if you knew someone who could hook you up or just get sponsored (dont know if that's easier said than done spineyes )

Do these kits really need so much body work??? it almost sounds like i sould just take that money and drop it on suspension upgrades. Is a body kit worth it?

haha if you want the massive amounts of sexyness it is. Body kits are all up to the driver of the car if you want it to look like that or not, no one can really tell you if its worth it. If it is to you, then yes, if not, then no.
