Body Kit Suggestions

Alright once again I need some help deciding on my next mod. The first one I wanna do to start off the summer is a body kit, probably Urethane.
I was thinking VS-1 but I don't think it is made in Urethane, and I hear Fiberglass can be a bad idea if you want a long-lasting kit. I want something that will last for years with an OK driver behind the wheel (I'm not a bad driver, just not an awesome one). I also want something that fits good because I don't want my shop to have to mess with the kit and mod it and charge me an arm and a leg for the install. I'd rather get good quality and save the money at the shop.

Post suggestions and links if you know a good price somewhere. Thanks guys.

You basically get what you pay for. If you want a replica it will come in Fiberglass and you will have a hell of a time getting it installed, it will usually need modification and if you get really lucky, only minor modifications will be needed. Get the real veilside it's made with super strong reinforced Fiberglass. it will be more expensive, but you will save money because it will fit with no modifications needed. thumbsup

How is durability for the VS1 and VS2 kits? I dont want my kit to get real busted up if I ever got in a fender bender (Not that I'm worried about my driving, but other drivers have a tendency to be plain old stupid around here).

I'm looking at the VS1 kit, but I really do want Urethane so I might try another style. Anyways back to my question...
How do you guys think durability is for the VS1 kit?
And how long do you think this kit could potentially last?

You guys think a Urethane Blitz bumper would look good with a VS1 rear and VS2 sides? Also how is fitment for Blitz replica? I plan to do the rest of the kit in authentic Veilside, for longevity. Last question, do you think riding on stock 16s and stock suspension will make it too low for a Blitz front?

I know everyone is gonna say rims and a drop before body kit... I cant wait any longer for a kit, I want one bad... Plus I see a lot of cars on stock rims and stock suspension that look great.

Thanks Guys.
And if anyone wants to photochop a Blitz front and Veilside rear and sides, feel free it would be greatly appreciated. Picture below.
