go to ebay and good luck cause your gonna spend way more then $1200 getting it to fit right.

Actually a $1200 widebody kit is pretty cheap one that fits correctly will run you upwards of $2000

Any body kit you get regardless of widebody or not is gonna cost you over $2000 after you get the kit, fitment and paint.

The IS isnt cheap to do anything to so you might as well get read to spend the money

well, even if you do find a wide body kit less than $1200, your still going to pay about the same for paint, and for it to be put on. the only way your going to spend $1200 or less is if ya find a cheap kit, and have a good friend who can hook ya up with a good, but, cheap paint job. the, you and whoever get to have the fun of putting it on. :lol:

I don't mind spending the money that's not the issue, I should have put it differently... I don't want to pay 1200 for crap... if it's quality then fine... but i haven't seen quality widebody kit yet... not something i wouldn't have to do some extra work to get proper fitment... which i don't mind doing... but if i have do anything other than have it installed/painted then i'm not willing to dish out more than 6-800 tops...

Show me another :)


There are 2 I can think of

POISON
WALD

WALD is highly copied, but heard good things about some companies copies

POISON: RUN!

The Hyundai kit never fit right to begin with, tiburon owners were shelling out 1200 dollars plus for prep

shit guess i better start making one from scratch then... haha.... riiiiight... no seriously... what's a good site for is300 kitz... maybe i should scrap the whole widebody thing... though i do really like it... i'm thinking maybe if i find the right kit, some of those CF fender flares wouldn't look bad...

Custom metal ones
WALD FLARES
RSPECS

Couple choices

the wrong tone said:
You could always find a reputable shop to cut and stretch your fenders.

Would rather make some metal flares 10 guage

rivet them and seal them on

if you really want a wide body kit..i am guessing for show?

i think it is best to find a shop to fabricate a one of a kind for you.
i haven't heard of a widebody out there that is a perfect bolt-on.

maybe someone here on .net has one that was a excellent fit..only time will tell =]
