body kits question

it seems everytime i look at body kits all of them say "type" or "style" i would just like to know the difference between replicas and the real kits. especially the veilside kits. where is the best place to buy a replica veilside?

just remember this old great quote

you get what you pay for


if your paying like $300 for a body kit it probably wont be all that great

sometimes a company never makes a body kit for a particular car - so another company produces something that they think a kit would look like if it were produced by the other company

example - blitz never designed a body kit for the celica, so now there is no genuine blitz body kit - only several that have the same 'style' as blitz is known to have on their kits.

retailers interchange the words "type" and "style" all the time.

here is another thread to read through...

"style" means it's a replica
"type" means the same i think, if I am not mistaken confused

usually to determine if it's real is
1: the price is high, just like a real body kit would be
2: the name of it will not contain any special words describing, it will simply state "Kaminari Bodykit" or "Veilside Bodykit"
