    This is what I was looking at before my reiger, Nice kit just the Price was too much for me, I was quoted £1100 with Delivery, might be cheaper now though.

    Think Jase is after one of these too.

    Roy, I got my whole kit for £700, thats front back sidea and window spoiler. haggled with them and got the window spoiler thrown in.

    James, yeah very similar looking but the Otteinger just has that more defined edge to it, might be me being fussy and particular :think: though..

    Personally think J7USS has set the benchmark for inspiration, love the reiger more everytime I see it on your car mate and believe me thats often... personally I think the oettinger is slightly better due to its exclusivity but the price which does not include paint and fitting puts me right off. Personally ive held back putting a kit on car because everytime I look into it I get confused - decisions decisions. Think I'll see winter through before I start any transformations...

    The pics dont do car nor kit any justice. Considering what Ive just said if I saw them pics first It would totally put me off the kit.

    J7USS you need some photography lessons mate... :icon_thumright:

    :hi:Cheers Pav Id like to think that Ive played a part in spreading the 'burn a hole in your Pocket' Bug!!:)

    Yes I do like the Otteinger very much but like you say, its mega expensive and If I remember right, there were some companies charging £1400+ for the whole kit. One guy quoted me nearly £700 just for the front bumper.

    Im happy with my Reiger but as Ive said before there is something about the front bumper that dont quite satisfy me..

    oh and ill be Spraying the fog light covers this week hopefully.

    Mega expensive you can say that again - I enquired about the front bumper and I was quoted 646.01 plus VAT - a grand total of £759.06 excluding delivery

    I was P'd off but couldnt do anything so I got home this afternoon and gave it a rinse and leathered!!.....

    now ive been checking the past hour and its already looking Flakey!!:aggressive:

    looking into it a bit more, ill probably go with J7USS's front and rear bumper, and add some s4 door fins

    ive also been trying to get hold of a chrome window trim set, but cant find one anywhere ! are they like gold dust !

    Good choice Roy, Im still after some door blades aswell. As for the Chrome window trim, If you want it done properly then its going to cost you a small fortune mate, I was quote nearly £700 + vat + labour,Dont know why its so expensive but I wanted mine done but for that price, think ill pass.

    Reiger discontinued my kit early this year so if you manage to find a copy (which there is a few about) then make sure you get the ABS plastic as ive seen a fibreglass copy of it and IMO looked warped in the light.

    Good luck though Roy, you never know, You could find one at a Bargain price.

    Good man Mitch. Thats the site I went through, I was looking for it last night aswell..

    Roy - tally up what you would be spending on the bits you want and give them a call go in a £100 cheaper or more if you want to and work from there mate.
