Thumbs up Positive experience at Platinum VIP

Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to share my very positive experience with VIP Platnium Auto Saloon in Irvindale, CA. I went there mainly to get my fender lip trimmed on my Supra, ended up finding out that they do much more than just auto body and paint. Kennedy Nguyen, the owner, personally trimmed my fender lips perfectly. For the full job of trimming, sanding, and sealing the lips it was $75 per side…not too bad given that he knew what he was doing and came out perfect. Kennedy has also designed a racing coilover cup kit called Phantom Cup Kit that allows you to adjust your ride height on your coilover…$2500 for all 4 corners. The shop was clean, the staff there were very professional and didn't try to BS me. Anyway, overall excellent experience there and just wanted to share my experience with my fellow members here...Darshana S...

+1 Platinum VIP

I have been taking my cars to Platinum VIP for years! Kennedy is a great guy and workmanship is lifetime!! Who can beat that in SoCal? They also have done SEMA cars for Ford and other projects. If Ford trusts Platinum, you should too

Its $3000 installed. $2500 is for the front and back cup kits, compressor, tank, and all the other necessary components. Platinum is only charging $500 to put them in.

Give them a call 626 472 7847
