got my front lip, sideskirts and rear diffusor painted for about 500CAD. I did the install myself except for the sideskirts. I suggest you install it yourself and of course you can ask me how to do it.

Re: (Vash13)

thanks for the info!
Sounds like you got a great deal, I can't install it myself since I am going with Evolve and due to the nature of the polyurethane it becomes an impossible task with out the right tools and experience.

Yeah the place I go to get all my paint and body work done looks soo shady, but they do the job well. Wow I can only see you spending a fortune on the bodykit. Matt can tell you all sorts of horror stories that comes with the Evolve bodykit. I will let him shine on the matter
. The kit itself is expensive and be prepared to spend a lot more on painting and installation because it's not going to fit perfectly like the OEM does.

Good luck and can't wait to see!

Re: (Vash13)

yah I have heard the horror with Evolve but I really like how it looks so I guess thats what matters. But to be honest I think most of the problems are due to using shops with out polyurethane experience, the material is very flexible and I will take it to a very reputable shop even if it means paying top dollar to make sure it comes out perfect. And I got a good deal on the kit otherwise I would of painted my stock pieces lol.

Re: (mofolicious)

I paid $2000 USD to have my bodykit painted and installed. (Front, 2x Side, Rear, Spoiler)
The actual labor was around $3000, but the shop promised to not go over $2000 when they quoted me.
It's the Evolve kit, that's why it was expensive for the installation.


The Evolve site says the kit is made from polyurethane

Thanks for chiming in biotek 2k is a lot but I must say your car looks amazing.

Yah the kit is polyurethane that is why it's a PIA but that is one of the best materials to use in terms of durability it should last as long as OEM, also it is much tougher than a lot of materials.

The reputable shops I have talked to will not give me a firm quote because they all say that with these type of kits they must be fitted to guarantee fitment by trimming before they are painted.
