no prices on the website? My guess... $3500 at least... depends on how indepth you go. Just the kit or all the lights and other add ons too...

Actually, I just found the prices there... for the front, side and rear, it comes out to around 1500 and then the grill is about 300 and the lights are about 300 or something like that. But of course these prices are if you get it from Japan I figure.. after shipping and painting, it will probably be up there towards 3000 - 3500, but I think it\'s worth it... looks pretty dirty!

I like the bumper in the 2nd pic better than the one in the first...

In Sedan Mode... I\'m thinking about this as well... It\'s one of the main reasons I bought the car. I do think however the snow in the winter would be a bitch!

I guy in Vancouver just had this kit installed recently...

Link (http://www.mazda3forums.com/viewtopic.php?t=4717)

After dropping $4000 on the kit alone it still looks like crap. He still has to get a dual exhaust installed since there\'s a cut-out in the rear skirt for that, new rims and IMHO, paint all of the black pieces to match the rest of body.

I\'ll stick to my stubtle front and rear factory aero flares that I got from the dealership. They\'re expensive, but a lot cheaper than the Kenstyle kit, done right!

The front somehow looks better in the pictures... the one on the linked thread looks just ugly.

Here\'s (http://www.mazda3forums.com/viewtopic.php?t=5378) another person who bought a similar body kit. It\'s not a \"Kenstyle\" brand kit, but a close knock off for apparently a lot less money. The knock off is made in, of all places, Sri Lanka!

I don\'t think I\'ll be getting a kit for my car. IMHO, I don\'t see the point. I haven\'t seen a kit that I really like yet, and I\'m not prepared to fork out money for a kit if all it does is look so-so and add weight.

i looked into this kit through datoor.com there a company accolade sent me to
to get the kit since were from canada. these guys work with quite a few dealerships
for kits for other brands anyway they gave me a price of 2000 CDN for the complete kit for the hb. that is pretty good considering its PRFP material which can be twisted and bent the put right back onto the car. no worries of cracking the bumper on bump.
they use the same material on european race cars and JDN super cars that go so fast if you left the stock rear window in it would shatter from the vibration.
so check out www.datoor.com and see what they say
