Replicas?

are these any good?
the site looks credible with authentic and replica bodykits...

im just wondering if there will be a problem with these becasue they are so cheap

take a look and give me your opinions
these are the ones i like because of the price and what it replicates

TRD REPLICA $579.23

VEILSIDE REPLICA $579.23

im not concerned with having authentic stuff i just want to make sure they wont be duds that are useless

thanks for any advice and help thumbsup

That isn't always true. Some replicas will fit like complete shit (normally the ones on eBay), but some replicas won't look so bad. I know the people at the place and you can trust the website. However, I don't know anyone that has ordered a replica from there and installed it, so I don't know how well the kit will fit.

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!

i used the search and some concerns were fitment and durability

i think firment shouldnt be too bad and material is a concern because they dont even say what it is made out of

I got a replica from Groupbuy4celica, and had to make just a small adjustment by the headlight.

are replicas considered replicas because they copy a design or because because they are poor quality

are they usually the same materials as the normal name brand?
