wings west body kit vs TRD body kit
hey peeps, i'm contemplating on getting either a wings west body kit (add on's) or a full TRD body kit. i just want it as conservative as possible but more aggressive than stock. furthermore, can peeps from socal recommend a relatively good body shop i can have them painted and installed for a reasonable price? thanks and i'll appreciate all inputs!

drjongski,
I used my kit to win 10 1st place trophies last year, beating some pretty trick cars. I just bought the APR kit because I love widebody kits. But if there was no such thing as an APR kit, I would keep this kit forever. Love the looks of it and the way the front bumper is made, I am able to go up any driveway without even slowing down if I wanted to.
My car gets more compliments than the tricked out Mach1 I used to have did. Next to the APR kit, it is the best looking kit made. IMO.
My kit, wheels, TRD exhaust, seats and Hood will be for sale in one month. I'll sell you the kit for $800 plus shipping. Let me know.

Forgot to say "minus the wing". Just the bumpers and sides for 800.

If your gonna pay 800 for the kit badceli is selling then why not get a urethane KAM kit new shipped UNPAINTED for 860? Or a wings west unpainted for under or around 600shipped? Is that too expensive? Last but not least NEVER BUY A FAKE TRD Action Package front, worst fitment ever. EVER!

you can't get an authentic TRD kit for a reasonable price, but you can get one at www.mvpmotorsports.com. i'd shell out the cash for a veilside kit before the TRD one (for something different). i'm pretty set on buying the WW kit, because it can be had for 500 w/o wing, and 200 or so for the wing.

tuning solutions was the company. looks like they still have it, but now its $499. still a great deal, and shipping is included for that price. here's a link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayIS...sspagename=WDVW

it'll take about 2-3 weeks to get it but imo it's worth it, especially since i got mine for 100 less than that back in april. good luck.
