Talking Reiger

I like Reiger. I am quite happy with the quality and look over some fiberglass kits-they tend to crack easily. Reiger is not fiberglass.
Thanks
p.s It all comes down to personal preference.
p.s.s Just like most all guys like girls compared to E46lover who like????

Onece again, just because its a Rieger does NOT mean its not fiberglass, and it does not mean its bad quality! The GTS and Genesis kits are all very high qualits fiberglass products and are original Rieger!

Lots of meat on fil's kits.It will hold up. Plus if it cracks it can be repaired. ABS kits are a bitch to get fixed. Big $$ too

I think all Rieger kits are fiberglass, except the Infinity I lip. I have the Infinity I lip, its flimsy ABS plastic, and I have broke it once. I fixed it myself with fiberglass.

Most of the kits posted so far will fit an 84, except for the M-tech II and the Rieger Infinity I. They are also almost all fiberglass and should be fitted by a professional since fiberglass kits have flaws 99% of the time.

I dont think anyone makes a direct fit mtechII for a pre 87. they can be made to fit. But again that is extra money .

if you install a fiberglass kit PROPERLY, you shouldn't have any problems....

abs plastic is alittle more ridgid, but it is also alot harder/expensive to fix...and the majority of the time, it is repaired using fiberglass...

fiberglass is easier to work with, more flexible and easy and cheap to fix....
