      I realize I'm prob gonna get flamed for this, but I'm just looking for a yes or now as to whether I should spend my money on this. Thanks.

      For the 337 kit, $330 shipped to my door doesn't seem bad to me If it's good quality. I'm not worried about the install, I can make it work.

      This ^^^^. I have a POS fiberglass R front bumper, 330 to your door but do you have a hoist and all the right drills. Mine is drilled into the undersides of the fenders. And i had to pay some real geniuses for it. If I was u find there return policy, wish I check mine.

      Go with an OEM front lip and rep skirts and rear lip. Not like you're gonna be dragging them on the ground. Check out some other more credible sites or the classifieds.

      one of my friend have the gli kit, side fit pretty good, however the front and rear lip don't have any tabs, so you need to screw them into your bumper, and the edge of the lips don't align that good, but overall it's a decent quality for the price.

      I figured that's what everyone was gonna say lol They're just so expensive. I guess you gotta pay to play What about just maybe buying the skirts from there, since the installation is very straight forward?

      Sounds good to me, I'll try em out and see. I'll post a review up then for everyone else. Just have to save my pennies then. My cousin works in the air force and is based in Lakenheath England, so he's gonna get me genuine oem for a nice deal
