Hi Guys,

I'm debating on getting the attached body kit. which inculdes everything shown except Mags and car obviously.

the only thing is... i've added it all up and i'm looking down the barrel of 4.5g with out P+H.

Does anyone know of anywhere cheaper?

I'm fairly sure AWC is one of the cheapest suppliers.
FTG Autosalvage may have some of the parts (i think they had the DJR kit at one point)

Don't go any of the carbon fibre/fake carbon fibre pieces.
Too showy.
Leave it all white, get dark rims with a deep polished dish, and bobs your uncle.
Sweet as f**k XT.

Go for the XR8 bonnet if you have to, but I've seen a couple of photoshops of white XT's with XR bodykits and they look a lot nicer than an actual XR...

Not sure if they are available for purchase though.

As for the kit shown, I agree with Soulfire (for once) :lol:

AWC Fibreglass XR8 Bonnet is $650 + paint
you were looking at the "HO" bonnet which has vents etc.
