Have some question on the M6 conversion project?
I've checked several thread around here but I think it's better for me to create my own since all other are outdated.
Here's a few issue:
The whole Duraflex kits, from Extreme Dimension, Bought from Driven By Style website (so I don't know who really own it), only the side skirt fit decently.
The rear bumper barely, but the shop have to take out my reinforcement something. Sound dangerous.
The front bumper way off the OEM. Lower, doesn't fit, the gap between the bumper and the front reinforcement is about a pillow, 5 inches or something. Totally, there is no way to fit the front bumper to the car.
Here are the pics:
OEM VS DuraFlex (Side by Side pic)
I really regret to buy from Duraflex/ Extreme Dimension/ Driven By Style/ Duraflex Body Kits what so ever they call it.
The cost of a bumper is ~$500 + paint and installation (~400-500) = $900. Lots of work required do to drill, cut, and the fiberglass material doesn't look that good. The bumper come uncutted, not as the picture. The company seem fraud, they ask me to file a claim to supplier so they will forward my claim to supplier, they sell it as a agent. And charge 25% for restocking fee.
The shop I do have the used OEM genuine one, painted and installed for $1,000. F$%*!!!
Have anyone has this issue before?
What should I do with my rear? Without reinforcement? Do I have to purchase the one for M6 and put on my car or is it because of this fake Duraflex rear bumper, if I got the real one then I can use the rear reinforcement.? Any help?
Do I have to purchase this to put on my rear for safety?
