Hopefully will have some this week. My cars at the shop getting painted as we speak. But when the shop did the prefit a few days ago, I was just as amazed as they were.

It depends on the replica you get from them, but their chargespeed rear and v2 fronts are quality. The side skirts usually end up being the pieces that need the most adjustment.

Overall they sell quality stuff, imo.

If you want a better replica, go with Shine.

I got mine from Avery at DTM.

My car will have a V2 front, V1 sides, and a chargespeed rear. My front and sides are Shine.

I recently got a VIS kit from DTM and it was a total complete nightmare.. zero fit.

and then again, i got a VIS kit before from M1 last year and it was dead on.

non authentic= total crap shoot.. and its 50/50, not 80/20 in your favor.

I wont knock the reasons why ppl buy non authentics. Ive done it myself.
But unless you have it in your hands, and can line it up to your car before paying for it.. Id never buy a kit non-locally again in my lifetime.

Plus it saves the vendors from having to deal w me when I call back...."unhappy".

good ju ju.

Also, i didnt chime in just to be a dick.. someone posted and asked, and i felt I should share my experience so they can make a better decision for themselves based on the information out there.
I know theres good knock offs out there. .but my VIS experience yielded me a 2nd kit that in no way matched the quiality of the first by any means.. it almost looked hand made.

I bought a V2 replica kit without knowing what brand it was. I'm still not completely sure, but a few people told me it's most likely VIS. And I'm really happy with the fitment

VIS should not be in the same sentence as Quality. I am speaking of VIS products about 8+ years ago(damn its been that long ) And the entire kit was garbage. CF hood faded in a month.

I say buy at your own risk. Maybe they picked up there game and started caring
