Authentic or Replica Kaminari Kit?
Which will be cheaper in the long run with paint and install.
Best I've found so far for the kit was
Authentic: $1,000 shipped
Replica : $600 shipped

It's like the saying goes "you get what you pay for". I would go with the real deal and the real Kaminari actually comes in both fiber glass and urethane, plus if there is fitment issues with an authentic Kaminari kit the guys at Kaminari are very nice. When I got mine my supplier forgot to pick up the side skirt badges I called up Kaminari and with in a few days they sent me out a set no questions asked they were very friendly. thumbsup

u can get authentic urethane from newcelicaDOTorg for liek 900 or tad less. search under their groupbuy and it will send you to the site that sells them, in the long run that is better, plastic is more durable. thumbsup thumbsup

go with the authentic. Replicas are usually fiberglass and may have fitmit problems. Also, fiberglass cracks and shatters easily.

But urethane is heavier. Go authentic urethane. Or, if you don't want to spend the money, the Razzi kit is an alternative, and it comes in ABS plastic, which is strong, lightweight, and flexible.

just go authentic. it'll save you fitting costs, and probably won't bust on you.
