Exclamation Replica JCW Aero Kit

Hi, I've been thinking about buying this due to the insanely cheap price, but just wondering what the quality will be like.

The fact that it says it may need some adaption to be a perfect fit worries me slightly, though it does say if you're unhappy contact them so they can resolve any problems.

I'd usually be very cautious when buying from a seller who doesn't appear to have sold them before, though I've since been on the receiving end of realising that PayPal are completely in buyers favour, and if a product is not satisfactory, a refund is given (through PayPal if not the seller directly). Also, the fact the description says "all parcels are insured, please open the parcel in the presence of the courier, if you find some damages, official damage notice signed by courier required" is reassuring as it gives the impression they want to make sure the products are a good quality.

Anyway, I won't go on, here it is...

MINI COOPER S JCW LOOK 2001-2007 FULL BODY KIT | eBay

I've seen the front bumper or the side skirts advertised separately over the past few months but never looked into it. I'm unsure whether there has been a mistake with the pricing, I know the body kit is fibreglass but 180 is just silly!

What do you all think? I think the pictures in the description of the advert look great. The front bumper looks slightly different but I think the side skirts and rear bumper look great. Can't really tell about the spoiler from the pictures.

I'm usually a firm believer of what you pay for is what you get, which is why I wouldn't usually buy something of this price, but I'm kind thinking I might just go for it.

Thanks in advance for your replies!

Looks wise it looks rather nice, especially the front bumper.
However, this means nothing if it's a pile of cr*p
when it arrives!

The ad also says they do "Shipping of Polish" so it might come with an illegal immigrant in the box, that might be why its cheap, risk factor

Theres fibreglass and theres fibreglass, cheap is thin and distorts and show ripples and eventually crazes, looks ok on the photos but they have probably been photo shopped to look at their best?
