I think it's a hit or miss situation. From what I know, some people get some decent kits and others get some pretty crappy ones. I guess it depends on your luck. I'm sure most will agree when I say you get what you pay for.

I got a lip kit off EBAY. WW style. It took a little work to get it to fit perfect but I'm anal about fitment. Fits great but I had to have the edges fit flush to the body that's the little work I was talking about. It's made of urethane.
hpsport or something like that. 400.00 shipped if I remember right. Some pics are in my gallery.

Why would you pay $400 shipped for a fake WW? I got mine for just over $400 shipped, and that was authentic. :shrugs:

I wouldn't buy a fake kit if I were you, unless you personally know people who have had great experiences with them. Spend a week scouring the internet for deals on the kit you want, and you'll probably find them.

I don't know if it was fake or authentic. How could you tell? It fit nice I'm just anal about things being perfect. Guess it comes from being a painter for so many years.

Oh well?? Daughter is slowly tearing it off the car anyway. Glad I didn't spend the money on OEM stuff.

it doesn't really depend on eBay. it depends on the seller and the company who made the body kit. for example, i got a full WingsWest kit for $399 shipped to my door. it was a genuine urethane part from the real company. but most kits you see on there are knock offs and are fiberglass. try to run across some auctions where the seller has a genuine part, and also check feedback religiously. most are crap, but there are some good products and good deals out there to be found. good luck!

It's not mine it's hers. I just bought it and we fixed it for her senior project.

You get what you pay for for the most part. If a price seems very low for a lot of stuff, 99% of the time what you're going to get it crap. I see tons of terrible eBay bodykits on riced out cars every day. Ftment is teriible, all the corners of everything crack...

I bought a carbon fiber hood from eBay that was about $200 less than buying a hood from anywhere else. Its not bad, but you can definitely tell it isn't as nice as say buying a Seibon authentic hood.
