I think you need to back away with that tone and trying to insult my intelligence! It's a public form if you can't take an honest post to help out other members then walk away.
There was a thread thoroughly discussing this subject where other members described fitment problems with JDM kits. Myself included. My Wisesport lip did not mount without modification. Sometimes it happens, price does not play into it. Not as much as u think.
Your statements about his kit not fitting right out of the box because it is a knock-off are just not accurate. I just don't want people who are easily influenced to read that stuff and believe you speak the gospel.
Okay, this guy had problems. He posted it. Fine. But you blamed it on the fact it is a knock-off, he didn't. You said that. He didn't. You don't know that what u said is true. Don't make general statements without facts. My knock-off kit fit perfectly. So it's not all of them.

As for tones, I'll not reply, you know what u can do with that one.

As for helping other members....is that what u think you're doing? By stating things that may NOT be fact. At least say it's your opinion.

It's ok if u don't like knock-offs....but it's childish to put something down simply because u don't like it.

wouldn't that make clear sense if I post something that its my opinion. Am I forcing anyone to agree or disagree with me? I just posted accurate info as I would for anyone. Your welcome your opinion. Your welcome to disagree with me as are other members

And just curious what would you call this kit from ED? Teach me since you know more I would like to learn:thumup:

And your correct it has nothing to do with what you paid..I probably paid less for the real deal kit then most have paid for these copied kits.

I don't like blacked out wheels but I don't recall putting it down or the people who choose them. I've never said it was bad, knock-offs, fake, harmful nor attach the person to choice directly. I try to speak my feelings in third person. Like this: I don't understand the logic of spending big bucks on blacked out wheels that disappear. If you like blacked out wheels just paint the stockers.

This was just my guys take on these sides, he couldve just told me that since it took him a week to get my car back but from reading thru these forums people have had problems with all sorts of kits wether high end or low end, I just think if it isnt directly from lexus theres gonna be fitment issues

Very nice izzy - ties in very well with the chrome trim on the car.

Thanks that's what I was going for. A classy look since its a luxury car. Only thing that is chrome is the lip. The face is a machined finish.

Nothing too aggressive for a daily driver. What does everyone think?

Wheels are alright - I could take them or leave them.
Not liking the bodykit bits, least of all the front chin - adds nothing but makes it look fat/bloated.
Actually the more I look at it again as I write this, the more I feel it ruins the car, which is beautiful in that white.

It's kinda dangerous to ask people what they think. You might hear stuff you don't like.

I like the wheels but not on this car. I think they are too tuner for a GS. But if thats the style you want that cool. Problem with that is there are other kits that are more tuner than this. No flow.

Speaking of the kit, I'm not crazy about it but it's not bad. Would be better on a black car. It is kinda bulky.

Here's the deal, lots of people don't like my kit either. I don't give a crap. All that matters is for you to like it.

Haha. I like how you described it as a dangerous question. I don't mind if people don't like it. Just sharing my completed ride. Just as there are cars here that I have seen that I don't care for. I just loved this kit when I first saw it on the actual Ings+1 car and it was in white. I wanted high quality JDM that is one piece forged so I got the Volk Racing G2s which I think is a classier model already. Thanks for the comments.
