What kind of kit? Because lip kits should generally cost less than kits that have full bumpers.

I had a friend who was nice enough to help me out with my kit. I had the TRD aero package put on for free when I bought my car

That price is great as long as you feel like you can trust the shop b/c sometimes you get what you pay for.

too bad you are not out here is SoCal - I would have enjoyed installing your kit at no charge... My Vizage kit was a pleasure to install - already predrilled and everything lined-up perfectly!

Well initially I was going to install it myself, but I really aprreciate the work the body shop does and I dont mind spendin a little extra to have it all done at once. As a matter of fact my car will be done today and I hope to have pics up tonight. I cant believe mines done b4 yours Isaac...I thought you were supposed to have yours finished?

over the stock lip... I wanted to get the install done correctly.

besides, I could also re-install the celica factory grill and attach all the plastic connectors by using the stock lip. (and also attach the Vizage to the stock lip up front, using all the hardware that had been included)
