Buying a replica will pretty much be the same risk no matter where you find it, just save for authentic! thumbsup

Exactly.

The VS kit is nice... but don't go cheap and get a replica.

It's like a Rolex. If you can't afford one, it's better to buy a Citizen or Seiko instead of a Folex. laughsilly

Try www.cheapkitsdirect.com and www.krazykustoms.com. I've heard they both have good replicas, especially cheapkitsdirect. thumbsup

If you're gonna get a replica, fitment and stuff's gonna be problem too.. To nicely fit it, body shop's gonna cost you.. You may even hit somethin and crack the body kit easily with the replicas. (my two cents- reinforce the replicas w/ homedepot Fiberglass...) but -> The extra expense will add up... By the time you know it, you already spent about half of the veilside body kit (if not 3/4 of veilside body kit) Just be patient and be the proud owner of the 'real' veilside. Being patient is alwayz a good thing(^_^) you'll never regret it

i bought my veilside II kit from there. (www.dragracing.com) and the fitment was close to perfect. haven't put it on yet, still saving for that. I think its pretty good for being a replica. Also saves you a lot of money!! smile

u mean you bought your
veilside 1 happywink

btw get authentic if you buy a replica as everyone already said install and fitment would cost you more than usual and quality would be sacrificed with replicas. what good is it if you save $$ on replicas and 2 weeks later you scrape and crack it(more money spent thumbsdown )

kevin,

By buying a replica the chance of spending MORE money then the authentic kit is high since you will have to put a lot of money and effort in making it fit.. cuase it hardly ever fits
