    Are you asking if we've heard of Kamei? They are a well established firm. Been around since the (19) eighties I believe.

    I was looking at this as well as the Oettinger kit when I bought mine. Plumped for Votex in the end just to keep the OEM feel, and the insurance company happy.

    No mate it was more of a G'morning! And to see if anyone had the kit installed or had any photo's, etc... and even just to make people aware that they existed.... trying to do a good deed! Plus I thought it looked gorgeous (apart from the center exhaust pipe)... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsdown.gif

    Wilko, Kamei and caractere are the same company, with slightly different rears, but same skirts and front mods with different bagdes. But caractere sigil is still visible on the product.

    Pics taken from the caractere site.

    Personally, i think there products are far superior to the votex kits IMO, and it would set the car off far better.

    Got the Kamei eyelids on the way and some other bits n bobs. Personally, I prefer the Kamei kit to the others. Those black powdered multi spoke alloys are just TOO sexy!

    I didn't say that, In fact the X1 kit was a choice when I was buying (if you'd bother to read the thread)

    However, the eyebrow things.......do they come in a pearlescent Burberry finish?
