You can try to find reconditioned fronts, rears and sideskirts through a bodyshop sometimes. They take pieces that have been busted up in accidents, and plastic weld them, then do some additional bodywork on them until they are like new. I got a reconditioned rear bumper cover when I got rear-ended in my 94 Escort. Costs a lot less too.

the TRD kit is nice, but if you don't get your car with the action package, it's just not worth it, since, for the same price, you can get much cooler looking kits (which you may end up buying eventually anyway). my suggestion: unless you absolutely cannot live without TRD, go for Wings West (half the price, and pretty much the same) or Veilside or Kaminari.

just got wings west, that's what i did. $399 w/ free shipping. then later i traded in my front lip for a TRD bumper. got it for like $280 shipped on ebay. now everyone thinks i have the TRD kit. the wing is also ww, and mine doesn't have anything written on it. if it did you could just paint over it anyway.

I agree. I bought my car without the action package and got a TRD kit (authentic) six months later. Now, I regret getting a TRD kit...i should have gotten a Kaminari kit.

Guess what on ebay there a kaminari for sale.
I don't know if it's still going on but get the kaminari then switch the front to a RMM or a TRD. Now there's an awesome set up.

yeah TRD is a bit pricey and too many people have the kit. I would have gotten the kit for mine, but people wouldn't give it a second look becuase too many people have it and also becuase Toyota began selling them as factory option.

Exactly
Kaminari and RMM are the best mix and match I can think of.
Kaminari for $500 and RMM Front for about $200-300
Of course you need to paint it too
