they both look great, its all about which one you like more and if you have the money, GT300 is a $3000 kit plus paint and install then you gotta get wide ass rims to fill out the widebody, so its all about what you want.

i know the veilside is a perfect fit, but i'm not sure of the apr kit, though extensive body work is needed for that kit. i also believe the apr is fiberglass, so you better make sure it's of good quality.

Veilside, real and replica, do not fit well and require a bit or time to fit correctly. Veilside kits are notorious for the bad fit.

Look at it this way, you can spend $600 on a replica Veilside kit (looks exactly the same as the normal kit) and get the look. The other option is you can spend $3,000+ on the APR kit, $1,500+ on the fitting and painting and $2,500+ on a new set of wider rims so your car doesn't look funny. If you're willing to drop over $7,000 (easy) on getting it looking right go for it.

I agree.. if you have the money, go for the gt3000. It's more unique, and looks better, at least IMO

gots lots of money to back the GT300 + wide rims and tires + paint and install = go for it

If not, I would just leave the your second choice a full Veilside kit.

i agree with everyone else; gt 300 will cost a hellofalot, but it is incrediably sweet and rare, so you'll definatly be in the zone, but the veilside kit is very sweet ass also, i would go with the veil simply because of the money i would save and be able to make on other modifications to the celi thumbsup
