    So its not the genuine vertex kit?? I have the original vertex kit (or so i'm told) front and rear bumpers fit well, but the sideskirts dont, this could be as they were fitted poorly originally
    the genuine vertex bumpers are very thin, a friend of mine in nz had imported in a genuine vertex full kit, found out that it wasnt as strong as copy ones


    btw what colour was the car originally?
    the car was originally pewter

    when i got the kit fitted, i wanted to get a few dints fixed and thought why not, so got the rest of the car resprayed...took me about 2 weeks, driving to heaps of car yards to see what color i liked!

    oh yeah, its a genuine vertex rear spoiler too

    Khoala,

    Does your vertex front bumper dip under the headlights? I just bought a non genuine kit recently and getting it fitted at the workshop at the moment, and mine dips.
