Its not that ive been quoted in US dollars... I just went to minimania.com to see the approx. value of the bodykit and they sell it for 1,275 USD = 1,695.75 CAD . I also talked to the body shop that my dealer goes through and they quoted me $1400 for paint and install. I think that I will just do it away from the dealership!

I was quoted a price of 3600$ here in Montréal by my dealer. That was at the end of
May. It's very expensive. I will have everything painted the same colour as the car. It will cost me only 1500$. Much less expensive and it's hard to tell the difference...

I was quoted about $3000 U.S. for installed kit, so your price is consistent with that. Dealers are expensive. But good luck finding a body shop to do it for you -- perhaps it's easier in Canada, but I have had hell finding any body shop in town here (Austin Texas) to install a body kit. They don't wanna touch it.

I have talked to the body shop where I get everything done and they charge 1400$ for install and painting so i think im just going to order it from the internet and get them to do it.. Does anyone know if there are any companies from canada that sell bodykits over the internet or the cheapest US company?

You got it ! All the black parts will be painted over...monochromatic look. Done by the dealer prior to delivery... and 1500$ instead of the 3600$ for the aero kit. It takes a very trained eye to tell the difference from 15 feet away.
