fibreglass = poo.. if you park in a car park and hit the front barrier it will do 10x more damage then a plastic bar

give it a year or so and you will have a ugly bodykit! if that

varies
between this thread, and your other one, i'm guessing you are looking for a cheap bodykit?

which one are you looking for? how long do you want it to last, and how much [email protected]#king around do you want to do just so it fits right?

Stay away from fibreglass if you can afford it, and sometimes buying local isn't that expensive and the after sales support can save you some heart ache...

as posted in the other thread today about body kits-

buying bodykits unseen is one of the biggest mistakes people make.
if you want a kit go somewhere that you can actually see the kit before you purchase it so you can have a real good look at it.
if you dont know what to look for take someone with you who does.
ive seen it way too many times young fellas with no idea on what to look for buying kits over the internet then im left to try and fit them
which costs them way more because they are just crap quality.
if you cant be 100% sure on the kit just dont buy it and you will save a fortune!!!

most people are under the asumption that they can put a cheap fibre glass kit straight on. WRONG. fibre glass needs a lot of finishing when it comes out of it's moulds. these kits have no finishing. they can be made to be as durable as plastic, but it takes time and money. be warned

If you want to waste your money, look like a w&nk and just find your self replacing your unaligned front bumper in 12 months then Take your pick. No body kits on ebay are good, it is very rare you will find a decent made fibreglass body kit. Take your time, save your money and find yourself a nice SS kit for your VS.
