Bodykit question?

I just wanted to know what are the advantages of the Urethane bodykits since I have seen that the Urethane parts are more expensive. I don't really know much about this so I would appreciate the help. Thank you!

That's it in a nutshell. But it is also supposedly heavier than fiberglass.

Urethane is very strong. Think of it was plastic rubber or vice versa.

go for urethane, you dont want fiberglass cracking. Also if you buy most aftermarket parts, you have to paint. MS comes painted.

and HOW CAN U GET IT SO CHEAP!

If you're getting the official MS side skirts, then they aren't urethane. They're something like liquid injection molded plastic... whatever... basically the exact same material as your stock bumpers.

If it's not the official MS kit... where the hell are you getting it from?? And do they do the whole kit in urethane???
