Ok, I'm thinking of getting a kit put on and I was thinking of the EC-I model (http://www.andysautosport.com/bodykits.php?id=To00Celica&brand=VeilSide) from veilside but the more I look, the more I see other kits that look almost EXACTLY this same??

Examples
Here (http://www.andysautosport.com/module.php?act=kp&line=00-04%20Celica%20Vader&cid=To00Celica&brand=Extreme%20Dimensions)

and Here (http://www.andysautosport.com/module.php?act=kp&line=VS%202%20Style&cid=To00Celica&brand=AIT%20Racing)

Whats the story here? Aside from the price, what's the difference? Is a question of quality and the styles actually ARE the same? What about size and fitting.


On a side note, how difficult is it to fit a kit? If i've never done anything like this before would it be better to hire a pro? How easy is it to mess up?

It is all about quality. One person creates the kit, everyone else copies it and sells it as a cheaper price. Some ppl will even buy the kit from the original maker at a lower wholesale price and then just mark it as thier own and sell it for more.

If you have never installed a kit before, hire a pro, since you will want it painted anyways. They are easy to install, but if you are questioning your ability to do it, it is better not to take chances.

Good Luck.
