Question Has anyone had a problem with Duraflex M1 Bodykit?

Has anyone had a problem with Duraflex M1 Bodykit?

heres the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004-...s#ht_949wt_788

Cracking? Breaking? Fitment? Also, will that rear piece fit with my stock bumper?

Anyone that has this kit, pics would help, thanks.

Extreme Dimensions are the ones who make this kit...they are JUNK!!! Their fitment is horrible, there are few here that got f'd when getting this kit. Buy at your own risk, have extra money on hand to get it to fit properly.

Thanks. That Kit looks great but from what I heard, if it's not authentic it's just not right.

Oh crap. Good thing this question was asked before I decided to order a body kit from ED. I was mad tempted to order from them after I get my car but after hearing this...... screw that.

replicas still suck in my opnion, if they're so frickin' awesome, how about they stop ripping off ideas off of other companies? If they're so great, they can develop, test fit, and market a kit of their own design then, period.

REAL kits cost more because they're not cheap to make. I'd rather pay more for an original idea over a stolen one any day, to me it's just like art, given a choice between an original Monet or Rembrandt or a fake Wal-Mart poster etc I'd have to side with the real deal. Would I rather see the Beastie Boys live, or some lame cover band who plays their songs? That's awesome other folks are content with financing a company or companies out there that rip off ideas for a quick buck, but I'm not. I'd rather support the legit companies who have been around since before there was any "import scene", then give money to the ****** who are exploiting it and profiting from stolen ideas. that's just my opinion, suit yourselves, it's your car to ruin.

^Hey man Shine does do some good work. Here's a pic of my buddies 3rd Gen RX7 with a Shine body kit. His body shop guy told him he only had to prep it for paint and it installed perfectly!

Yeah shine auto has had some good reviews and the pricing isn't terribly bad.

Is it expensive to get the lip kit painted?

So you think no re-issues or replications Rembrandt or Monet should be created?

The issue is those who are giving money to those "******" wouldn't dish out twice or three times that amount for just a "car" due to finances. Understandable by me...

Live within your own means, replica kits have a place in the modding scene due to financial bracketing. No companies are loosing a considerable amount of money because of replica companies, at least in the US - those who can afford the real deal go for it.

Your car to ruin? You've seemed like a cool guy in the past canary but what is this high horse? Because someone prefers to purchase some dress-up for there car, albeit replica, rather than nothing at all, they are ruining their car? Like you said, opinions are opinions, but no need to put others down simply because they don't have as large a budget to spend on car parts.







To OP: In other words - one of the most "reputable" replica companies would be ShineAuto. Some have issues but the ratio of good fitting kits vs poo is much much lower than 99% of other replica companies out there.

Sorry to threadjack:
I'll let my buddy know, he's on the 7club under speedjunkie. The car is always a work in progress. We rebuilt the motor in his kitchen and he installed himself. Then moved to CO and did a single turbo upgrade and is now pushing 500+hp...but it doesn't stop there he did a full color conversion from Montego Blue to Black interior included. Now his upgrading to a 500GT turbo and is hoping to hit 700hp.

Back on topic: Shine good!!!
