Body Kit Quesitons?

Okay, so I have a 2001 Celica GT. I want to finally start doing some body work to it. I'm starting with a body kit, but I'd like to know what Im getting into first. So here are my few questions.
First off, I was looking at the veil side kit. Are there a few different variations? And what's the average price on that one? I'm also wondering how much this is going to cost all around, for the kit itself, painting, and installation.
Next would be where should I be looking to buy this? I'm sure online is my best option, but what are the best places to buy them from? I don't want to buy off of some random site that I can't trust. Specifically, which have veilside?
I'm new to all this. It's my first car and I've had it for around half a year. I wanna start pushing it closer to it's full potential.

Have a quick read through the "Body Kit" items on the top of this page:
https://www.celicahobby.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/forums/8/1/exterior-guides.html

Especially this one -

and this one -

As for Veilside styles, there are two.

The classic EC-I:

And the more modern, FF GT Series:

If you want your new body kit to fit correctly, look good and last, dont skimp on cost by buying a replica kit -

Veilside is one of the more expensive body kits, mainly because of the high quality material used.
