www.Importfan.com question

Are the body kits that they sell at Importfan any good? Is the fitment & quality any good. I tried doing a search for this topic and I couldn't find anything. I'm looking at the Extremor body kit that they have.

I just got my Vielside replica front and rear kits from them yesterday. My friend at the body shop is a little anal but, he told me that the blue class is hard to work with. The front bumper was OK except for the the cuts around the headlights and the rear bumper has some bumps on the part by the trunk latch.

We are going going to fit it on Friday and price what it will take to make it look good. I don't mind spending a little extra on the fitment because each bumper from VS is around $630 and I got both of them w/ S&H for less than half of that.

I'll post again on Friday and let everyone know how it goes.

I'm gonna take your little Civic. Dust it off. Turn it sideways and stick it straight up you candy A*s.

I don't know about the TRD kit but you can e-mail them and ask.

I'm not saying anything good OR bad about the company until after we fit the part tomorrow.

Well I just got back from the body shop and I guess it's true what they say you get what you pay for. Niether the front nor the rear bumper fit. The front one is over 2 inches wide on EACH side. thumbsdown thumbsdown thumbsdown

So now I've called the company and they want me to take pictures of the parts on the car to prove to them that they don't fit. angry Like I'm a big fat liar. If they fit don't you think that I would keep them?

Plus I just found this one out if you read the terms and conditions at the bottom of there web site.
Returns
All returns must be authorized and approved by GTP International, Inc. GTP and C-WINGS brand parts do not have a restocking fee. For Non-GTP and Non-C-WINGS parts we do charge a 25% restocking fee. All return requests must be made within 5 days after receiving order. All approved returns must be returned to GTP International, Inc. in unused and unaltered condition with original packaging (or better packaging). Insure that product is very well packaged. Refunds will not be issued on returns that are damaged during shipping back to GTP International, Inc. In the event that damage does occur, a refund will be issued when a claim has been settled with the carrier. Failure to comply with this return policy will result in a refusal of the shipment and will be returned to customer at his/her own expense.

If you didn't catch it.. You only have 5 days to return the product. thumbsdown And it must be returned in the same OR BETTER packaging. It was wrapped in one layer of bubble wrap and thrown in a box. angry angry angry

Hmm, I guess it just depends on what you get. Some people say their stuff is really good and other have had bad experiences. idunno

The back bumper was no better. The arrow shows the big chunk missing and the circle shows that it's and inch and a half too short. angry
