And i think more people agree with me than disagree, if there was a bit more quality/time/effort put into these kits they would sell a lot better! It's also pretty funny, that its always the same cars EUROSTYLE keeps showing as the work his done, FIL, thats not really your work anymore, some bodyshop had to waste a LOT of time to make the car look up to par!
Just because you own a bodyshop does not make you good at it! So what did not fit if i may ask? The front bolts on in 10 min or less! (if you know what you are doing that is...) How the hell do you know how much time/effort i put in it!? Just because you got the cheapest part possible and didnt fit it right does not mean anything! You want to buy an Infinity kit, i'll do the install FOR free in front of you!
See the thing is I was the one who did/put the kit on E36_freak's car, so i think it might be considered my work, i dont know! The other one was done at my friends shop, they had no problems whatsoever...

No offense but I've hardly seen any replica fiberglass kits that actually look right... Not refering to eurostyle's work, but in general, most of the time when you look at the car you can say it is fiberglass replica... Something on them just doesn't look right.

Well, I dunno guys, the pieces I got from him, were excellent, nothing wrong with them, its too bad that the community seems to be turning on him, I mean, even when a huge company has a few faulty peices good luck trying to get the problem resolved right away, at least Fil isn't ignoring this post completely to avoid this, that alone shows that he's truly interested in customer relations, and more than likely will want to get whatever issuses he's had resolved.

As for those with pieces that they aren't happy with, did you go to Fil FIRST and tell him about it? Or did you let it slide until now and he is finding out for the first time in this post?

If thats whats going on, then tough luck for you guys, get real, next time, tell him first, bring the problem to his attention asap, and let him see what he can do about it, he won't know unless you tell him.

wow im in disbelief that this arguement is still going on. but if u guys do say fil's body kit quality is as bad as u say, then y dont u just watch him install the kit like mine or my brothers with ease? the kit on my car is a perfect fit as the pictures do show, and if u cant install the kit urself, u should ask fil to help, fil u should charge for the kit install so people like felix and soldomatic can watch and be stunned

Hey,

I am in the process of installation.

Kit complete from eurostyle.

So far so good, quality is nice.

You will need a good body shop because that what makes the difference really.

I will post pics once done.

- Lennon
For a start fil COULD be a man about things and ADMIT his faults, i mean no one makes perfect pieces, even major companies, okay, but i mean, every time something negative is said, fil has to back it up with the same cars he always uses to show his EXCELLENT quality work C'mon, and as soon as i hadd trouble fitting my bumper, i called fil right away and asked him for help, didn't get much help at all, so no biggie, wasn't too concerned, i'm not a body PRO, but my friend IS, and when HE had trouble doing it, thats when i got a little worried, cause i mean this guy LIVED for fiberglass! Now instead of kindly admitting that OK, maybe the bumper was in fact one of the 'few' ones produced which had a SHITTY quality, he just goes about, backin himself up, and getting all his friends who get the kit off him, to say good things!

I'm sure he spends JUST as much time making his buddies bumpers as he does with someone he doesn't even know!!

Again, like i said, not tryin to be a dik or anything, but no one is perfect, why does FIL have to be!


And i don't care to much, cause i mean i don't even have the bumper anymore, it has been sold probably for what its actually worth, and its gone, i'll make the sacrifice, stick it out a bit longer, and save money for an OEM quality product, but the thing is, i know how felix feels, and i wanted to back him up with facts, so people on max don't think hes an assshole who just likes to complain!

Like i said befor, DO YOU THINK i made a special mold just for you? All the parts come out the SAME! As far as selling it "for so much" just give me ONE full kit that sell for less, pleas do because i have not seen one yet!

I can bet you any $$$ that if i take the skirt off my car (no gaps as you can see) and put it on yours it will be different. Those are OLD cars, everyone is a different case! Thats why i leave EXTRA material that NEEDS to be trimmed OFF (not added!) If done right, you get a PERFECT fit! If you cut too much you get gaps, which is NOT my problem, should have went to a proffesional...
