Default feedback on body kit?

Has anyone heard of this kit? Its super cheap thats why im real iffy on it. Fitment problems maybe? Love the front and rear bumpers on this but definitely not trying to have to cut and fit 1000 times to get it right. Anyone know of a more well known kit that looks close to the same or if this kit is pretty legit? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I wouldn't recommend getting that kit. I don't have any experience with it but at that price I'm sure quality and fitment are horrible.

It looks to be a Chargespeed replica kit if i'm not mistaken.

First you are really paying close to 500 assuming you noticed the shipping.
Second I personally woudn't buy a body kit esspecially one off ebay, I would bet that there are probably going to be fitment issues.

I wouldn't do it. Ususally with body kits, the bumpers and side skirts fal a lot lower to give it the "lower to the ground" effect but you still have the huge wheel gap which looks horrible. Then, when you lower it to get rid of the wheel gap, your bumpers are now centimeters from the ground and you scrap everything.

What about a lip kit?

Considering I already have an sti with the vlimited lip I dont need another one. Now back on subject, the chargespeed kit, do you have to trim the front bumper to fit a front mount or will it clear?

Since you asked about the front mount, is that your key reason behind finding an aftermarket body kit, to fit a front mount?

No. My front mount fits behind my oem bumper but i did have to trim it some. I want something that is going to look different then just stock bumpers for shows. Im dumping a ton of money into paint and wire tuck and powder coat next week and thought instead of ordering a lip kit why not just order a body kit and look different. I dont want it to look super ricey though. Just something that looks a little more aggressive

It is the replica of INGS. You beat me to it. You'll pay a good amount for the installation of the kit.

Usually with knockoffs, fitment is terrible and you have to spend quite a bit to get it to fit. Mediocre at best.
