I know alot of people on here have the Ings body kit but most have chose to go with the replica kit do to the price that is and i was wondering does anyone actaully have the real Ings kit made out of hybrid fiberglass. If i wasnt for the horrible fitment problems i have heard about i would prolly go with the replica but i have heard about bad fitment problems espically on the rear and even through much body work at the shop it doesnt always look flush. Im not worried about price but i just want to know if anyone who has the the real kit has had any really bad fitment problems as with the replica.

ya i understand that but i meant like i have heard with the replica that the rear bumper being off by 2 and 3 inches. I dont mind having to have a little modification to make it fit but nothing like what i have heard with the replicas. Thanks for your feedback though

key word here is fitment and the key saying is "You get what you pay for"
i paid around 1200 for a shop to paint and install my BC2 kit...well..first time paint was a bit to dark and install was shitty on my rear bumper..had a huge gap..and when they shaved my rear A they left an oval indentation from the sanding..so yeah not always true..the second time i made them repaint it..this time it came out too bright..close to ABP instead of EBP..took it to another shop..they charged me 700 to refit the rear and repaint the whole kit and fix the rear shaved trunk...BLEH..oh and the first shop painted my kit ON MY CAR...and i had to clay bar all the overspray and tape residue..so yeah becareful..


i always belived in you get what you pay for...but that experience has ruined my perception so im sketchy on expensive things now...

yea thats just a dumb shop...My shop painted and prepped it then asked me to bring in my car when they were ready to put it on so that way i only didnt have my car for a day. My shop only took about 2 days to get it done, didnt come out all that bad considering the bumper was a pos.

ya exactly i mean you really do get what you pay for and what kinda body shop you take the car to. I have just been really scared off by the Ings replica kits since i heard so many bad fitment issues and plus i mean why do i wanna pay 500-600 dollars for a kit thats gonna crack if you go over a bump wrong ya know i just think well if i have the money for the kit them why not go for it. Shibbism im sorry to hear about your problems with your kit and the shitty body work hope nothing else likt that happens to ya

it won't crack, but it will scrape which has happened to be, but that can be fixed easily by taking it back in when its messed up a lot and just having them bondo that shit up sand it and paint it. Will look like new since its just scrapes on the bottom.
