TRD Replica Body Kit in the Store...

I am interested in buying the TRD replica kit from the ecelica store. I have a few questions...
What is it made out of??
Does it require drilling?? I know the stock TRD kit does not.
How's the fit??
How much is shipping to Chicago??

I would sugest if you are looking to buy the TRD bodykit, that you get it directly from your local TRD Dealership...

1) its genuine and the fitment is perfect thumbsup
2) its made from Urethane - Light weight high quality urethane thumbsup
3) comes pre-painted to perfectly match your celica's body color thumbsup

when you buy aftermarket you may need to modify the body kit to fit perfectly, you will need to have it color-matched, prepped and painted... and installed grin (this all comes to about the same price when you buy TRD STYLE or GENUINE TRD... but with genuine TRD, it will have all of the above listed qualities)

What would be the differences be between buying the "Action Package" and buying the TRD Style sides and rear and the mechanical front end? I was quoted a $620 price including shipping for those pieces at MB Autosport. How much would the kit be from Toyota? Is it fiberglass from Toyota?
The action package is factory. The fitment is perfect, needless to say. The entire body kit is polyurethane. But, buying the entire kit from Toyota would probably be around $1500. My TRD front bumper alone was $600, and it was on clearnace sale from Carson Toyota. Also, keep in mind, that the Action package pieces do not come pre-painted unlike the TRD. So you would need to add another $500 -$600 for paint.

TRD style kit are fiberglass. My suggestion is to get a front Mechanical bumper (action package front, they are the same) from Toyota, and finish off your kit with Wings West sides and rear skirt. You would have a kit that looks like the TRD kit and they would all be polyurethane. And Wings West are a lot cheap than the factory pieces.

Didnt know what the hell he was talking about...

UNLESS OFCOURSE, you are were asking for TRD Front... which has been discontinued (ie, renamed) and is now called the "ACTION PACKAGE" front - and comes with the Toyota Badge in the center grill grin
