Holy shnikeys!
kk well i went into a body kit shop and i got a quote on a veilside replica. I got quoted for $2300 (canadian) for kit, paint and install... is it just me or is that a lot of money??? iv really wanted to go for a veilside kit before rims or anything else... but i can buy quite a few mods with that money. Any1 got any suggestions as to what i should do???

Actually that doesn't sound too extreme, considering you're talking about the kit, install, paint, etc. etc. and you're dealing in canadian dollars.

However, I would spend the money on a genuine kit, myself, rather than going for a replica. But that's up to you.

I agree, for everything the price doesn't sound too bad however your money will be much better spent by not getting replicas imo
