LOL i know they're hard to find...but i had to start looking somewhere

How about the e-bay replica's...Has anybody seen what they look like in person.

I want something that will look good, and fit properly, i don't want any sagging or gaps

Any opinions?

No such thing as a good replica mtech 2 IMO.

Look on ebay.de, buy a kit for 900-1200 euros, ship it over. Have an OEM kit for around 2000.00 canadian.

Now look at how much a replica would cost, from when I looked it was usually, 400 for front end, 400 for rear end, 250 or more for the spoiler, and then 400-500 for the skirts and door pods. About a total of 1450-1550.00 BEFORE shipping and usually U.S prices.

OEM makes way more sense. If your really smart, wait it out and find one in the same colour as your car, ship it over, by a few odd clips and have a kit that just bolts on.

If you buy replica you will have to "make" it fit, it won't fit worth a shit without lots of hours worth of bodywork which is $$$ to most people, and you have to paint it.

If you're not down for spending 2k plus on tech 2, don't do it. just stick with plastic bumpers and an IS lip.

You can not take my good advice, and do what I did, buy replica junk, rock it for a summer only to realize it looked like shit, and sell it just to pay for another set of plastic bumpers.

so you still can buy an OEM kit from the dealer? I was wondering.... all I really want is the front.

From what I've heard you can buy it from the dealer, it has to be ordering in from europe. Your best bet for cost and time is ebay.de

^^^ i checked ebay.de...nothing on there but ill keep looking back.

If i order from the dealer, can i order them in the colour i want or will I have to paint it myself?

Thanks for the help...appreciate it

I'm assuming it does not come painted.

I would either piece together a kit on ebay.de or wait for a whole one to come up.

update: I was just at maranello today and was told that they cannot get the mtech kit and hasn't been made in 10 years.

Hmm, I have heard different things from different people, the one person I talked to worked at one of the dealerships, maybe thats why.

I would look on ebay.de then, wait for a kit or pieces to pop up and piece a kit together.
