I thought this question was answered at...
https://www.celicahobby.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php?Number=1862402228

"RaceReady Autodesign (R2) had gone out of business around the end of 2001 - and less than 20 ORIGINAL R2 Celica body kits were ever manufactured."

if you find someone selling a new R2 kit today - you can be confident that its a replica grin

The real one would probably have some kind of stamp or sticker on the inside of it saying it's authentic or the name of the company that originally made it.

its real... he is NOT selling a new bumper - he is sell his used bumper

like I said in my above post, "if you find someone selling a NEW R2 kit today - you can be confident that its a replica"... the keyword to make that statement true is "NEW"

...

I can vouch for darkduwende and his authenticity... we've publicly been around with the GENUINE R2 kit for since mid 2001... heck, ever since I got my kit, I have been complimenting on how well his kit looks spineyes
