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
