If u wasnt so far I would come to help out anyway I can, how long did it take for them to ship the kit out anyway? What does the new rear end look like? Hope it turns out good B)

well it got shipped out on the 25th -it took a week depending on when they get the money transferred into their account. they emailed me telling me that it was shipping out then so who knows when it will actually get it here :huh:

they told me the rear is the one that is onthe red 626 also (i guess they heard alot of people didnt like the other rear bumper) ---i will post the pics when they get here now i just have to see what rims i am gonna buy-any suggestions not trying to spend too much on them though.

Well u know how NY is almost like that in NJ with pot holes no>? Thats why i said 17's cheaper to fix or replace :huh: I was trying to find wheels for u but the site that was in the links section doesnt work anymore :mellow: But I find, I know I have alot saved in my Favorites lol for that - offset u looking 4 I think 17x7 or even 7.5or 8 should do it but Iam not that great with rims :unsure:

check this shit out :angry::angry::angry::angry::angry:

automoderna shipped shipped it out the 25th of april ,just found out it ARRIVED IN N.Y AT JFK ON THE 5TH OF MAY....it sat at DHL for 15 days and since no one claimed it (ME),customs took it and stored it in their government warehouse where it is now!!!

the hold up and messed up part is that DHL's storage fee was 127.60 since it was there for 15days(it later was waived by a cool supervisor who said that they f----- up something but wouldnt tell me what) and now I have to get a customs broker so they can give me a customs release for the package

automoderna asked me for my number so that when it arrives in the states I can be notified ,which no one did so now I have to pay for the broker,customs fees,and for storage at the government warehouse,which so far will be another 500.00 altogether....I am so pissed off and I cant even blame anyone for this!

it depends on the fitment when I get it shops here are asking 400 on up depending on how bad fitment isand they dont have any experience with automoderna kits and no-one has seen that kit for the 626 and everytime I show someone a pic of the car black all they say is :ohmy: oh sh--- :biggrin: which is good B) ,so maybe all this will be worth it :huh: ~even my girl cant wait till I get it and get all this over with

i was thinking no spoiler..and if it comes with the one thats in the pics,i will probably sell it, but i think it just comes with the roof spoiler over the rear window which i will probably make a mold of it and the eyelids and sell it to people with 6's and make a little dough
