Thanks for all the input guys, but it seems like SR is the only local supplier for kits?

Go to SR if you want to get screwed over big time.
Getting ripped off with some used parts and not saying those are used or damaged.
And yes I got proof.
Stay away from SR.
They might have their baller status just because they are good on promoting themselve. Nothing more.

Why are you pretending to drive a porsche when you don't have one?

Not at all. In fact, you can order any of the kits online (cheaper) and have a bodyshop do the install.

I wonder ... wouldn't it be crazy expensive to ship such big pieces such as a kit over here?

I had my splitter(s) shipped up from California, they were $50 each.. I had 4 wheels and tires shipped from Ohio, they were $50 each as well. I can't see shipping for a full bumper being more than $200. For a pair of bumpers and rockers, probably $500 shipping.

But guess what, you're gonna pay that if you buy the kit from Sr or anyone else, they just build it into the price. Nobody in Vancouver stocks these bodykits unless they are actually produced here.

Must be my age, but regardless of the quality of body kits for Porsches, they don't seem to enhance the shape of the car....porsche 996 look best, lowered with a the factory GT3 aero kit...anything else is a downgrade... even the techart kit.

I know PT-Maxi carries Techart and Cargraphic. I am pretty sure they can give you a good pricing on those kits. If you need referral, you can PM me.
