Replica or the real thing?

I'm looking for a body kit. The replica are much cheaper. I don't usually like to go the cheap route, because i know you get what you pay for. So are the replica kit that bad?

Depends on which kit you are looking at. I've heard good things about the Hartge Replica lip, but if you want the mtech kit, I'm not aware of any replicas, although you should probably just get that from your dealer, or online from another dealer.

ACS replicas are just like the real thing. If your looking for it, PM BRAD. He sells the full kit PAINTED for a GREATTT PRICE. Plus he gives e90post members a discount too.

lol, i guess it's "brad"

My main concern is the quality of the replica i guess. Being made of a different material. I'v been searching trough the forums to find people with replica, i haven't found too many.

Here's all the info on the Hartge Replica Lip, IMO it's the best lip I've seen for the E90, although the ACS kit is nice too.
