Calling shop on new kit...
Hey guys! Calling the body shop to get a quote on painting and installing my new kit. Anyone ordered from import innovation before? They seem reasonable. Here's the kit I'll be ordering in a week or so hopefully. What do you all think?

kit costs $595, what you guys think? good deal??

$595 for that eek sounds like a replica to me, you're better off getting an original. (which is a lot more expensive) Veilside kit = < $1500

That's what I thought... I was a bit skeptical. The shop says I should go Urethane, what do you guys think?

angry no tis not. They have it advertised as a VS in the middle of all the veilsides. However VS is really just BS, it's a shit bum replica and the pic is of a VeilSide original. Bastards. Anyone know a good kit retailer online?

Replicas are not my style. If you need a cheap kit, order a WW Front, Kaminari Sides, and WW Rear. Its all perfect fitment pieces, cost is low, and it looks awesome. Plus, no one really has this combonation for some reason. The cars I have seen it on look awesome.

$3000? eek I don't think it should be over $1500.

I know! Grrrrrr the whole thing sucks, if they think they're getting $3000 to paint my car they can shove off. That's a lil less than twice the cost of the EC-1 which I'm looking at. I've never worked with a shop before, I'm a DIY kinda guy, which makes me think one thing...I need a paint both, and for $3000-$4000(actual requote)... maybe I can afford one
