Not the cheapest deal but if everything was in great shape that would be very fair indeed.

The lower chin lip (the "i" lip) is cheap. You'll probably want the "is" lip or some other knock off lip as they're a lot lower, which are a bit more $, or you can do the volvo lip conversion (google it) since you're doing some custom work anyway on the rear.

You'll still need a rear valance.

my rear valance was made by eurostyle but he no longer does fibreglass frabication anymore. the next best thing i guess would be the ebay rear valance. Mines an m techII replica.

That's what I was afraid of. I'd asked Filip a few months ago and he said he wasn't doing them anymore. I'm hesitant to order some ebay or internet part without references though. Maybe I'll just have to suck it up.

kjc14552, ref the lip: I got the iS lip (like the one on matty.dc's car) and clips from the dealer for about $200 all up, unpainted. You can sometimes find them at breakers or pick-a-part places for a lot less, but unless you're really lucky you'll still have to get clips from the dealer (about $20-25 for the 10 you'll need) and you'll have to repaint to match your car.
