Replicas



What do u think about replicas?
I want to get ACS replica spoiler. I don't think that it is right to pay for the same thing, same material 2 time more just because it's ACS. I understand that real performance parts replicas (is there any?) not a good idea, but parts like rear wings, roof spoiler, pedals, shift knob(not short shifter), e-brake handle.
so what do u think?

I guess its ok......

usually they make it more expensive for a reason, other than just the name....


I find it when I buy something replicated its close to the original, but there's always the itty bitty here and there which doesn't make it fit perfectly or look as well

Ok, Honestly, ACS is friggen expensive, I think its a bit overpriced.. I have ACS replica Pedals, and an e-brake, I dont feel like paying 200+ on things that I step on, I could use that towards cams or something..

If your getting something for performance, then its a different story, but if its like a spoiler or pedals, Go with the replicas if you can get a good deal on em.

Maybe front bumpers I'll probably get originals cuz fiberglass can suck if you hit something.

yeah parts like bumpers is a different story, most of them are very hard to fit if they are replicas.
