Body kit decision

I'm really lookin to buy a body kit in the next day or so. I have about $900 i'm willing to spend just to purchase the kit. I'm thinking about getting an authentic Urethane Kaminari kit. I have a TRD wing and a raised Hood scoop also. (not on the car yet) I'm just a little worried that the kaminari might not stick out enough. Will every day people be able to tell it's a body kit without me telling them? Also if i get the kaminari i'm gonna get x-1 fenders too. Any suggestions on the body kit i should buy? Thanks alot. Also my celica is silver.

I think everyone will know that you have a body kit if you get the Kaminari kit.

As for other kits many are Fiberglass, and I personally would rather have a Urethane kit which is why I ordered the Wings West kit. I would say get an Urethane kit, because they will hold up and be more reliable.

Also, where did you get your Hood scoop from?


My car is gunna be 10x faster than yours...haha... I'm gunna buy like 10
of those speedchips! I figure if 1 gets me 20hp then 10 will get me 200hp!

also...i'm thinking that maybe i shoudl save up a little more and buy the Poison body kit they have at aerotrends. It's a wide body kit, but the only problem there woudl be the installation of the fender flares. Does anyone have an idea how much it would cost to install and paint the whole kit? Also does anyone know about the fitment?

I got my Hood scoop from www.thelostrican.com It was $110. i haven't installed it yet but it looks pretty good. I wasn't so sure how well they did business since they are in puerto rico (sounded kinda shady) but actually it work out very well. I had the scoop on my doorstep in about a week. They also had free shipping at the time. I'm not sure if they still do or not.

save up more and get veilside...its so worth it. some kid at my school has kaminari and my veilside looks 10x better than his kam and its not even painted yet. trust me save up like 600 more and you will be thankful you did. veilside may mess up but they are eager to fix their mistakes. not sure you can get that with another company.
