Is this amount fair for this type of Mod ?

Body kits, paint jobs, stickers, lights, bumpers etc.

Hi All,

So I finally found a garage [DX Garage in Ramool Rashidiya], that can wide-body my civic. This is the low down of the quote, but can anybody tell me if its a fair amount or its over charged ?

1600 - FRONT FENDERS [Fender Pull w/ Added Fabrication of little wide-body Fiber-glass]

2300 - REAR FENDERS [Fender Pull w/ Added Fabrication of little wide-body fiber-glass]

1000 - LOWERING COIL SET [New]

1800 - BUMPER FRONT [Modifying Same Bumper] making it like this: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5148/563 ... 647b_o.jpg

1800 - BUMPER REAR [Modifying Same Bumper] making it look like this: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5267/563 ... 8e77_o.jpg

2200 - SIDE SKIRTS
900 - GRILL
2500 - FENDER PAINT ONLY


1200 - TRUNK SPOILER [like this: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5144/563 ... f57e_o.jpg ]

15300 - TOTAL

This is how it'll look after done : http://numproduce.tarad.com/shop/n/nump ... 4646_b.jpg


They are giving a 3 year warranty of paint & body work.

Any other garage I can try, that can do this type of work for a lower amount ?

Thank You

Why don't you post some pictures of how ur car looks currently, and what rims you have that you need to pull fenders? :?

Just get Coilover suspension kit and nice set of wide rims, it is more then enough.. don't even need kits.

this OP has posted on atleast 2-3 different forums asking bout making his car like the one in pic.
people have given advice which he has chosen to ignore.
please let him spend 15-20k and destroy the car in some unknown garage, i am 100% sure it will not turn out like the pics and that the garage will do a poor job with panel gaps, poor paint etc etc etc.

also for 1000 aed, lowering coil set? what is that? im sure the garage wont order a set of lowering springs specially made for your car, they will just cut your springs.

i urge you to think again, buy the parts from reputed places and get them shipped to uae. yes it may cost more but you will have peace of mind.

anyway goodluck with your goals, please post pics after its done so that i can say "i told you so"
dont vanish off the forum after the work is complete

Of course I aint spending that 15K on some thing that aesthetic...but I'll keep trying to collect as much info a possible...Doesnt hurt to get info at least...

@Tryllz if u wanna modify ur car to the same picture as u refer then i think u shouldnt be thinkin bout the price. If price is the matter the just "FORGET" about the quality. I have seen some good body mods done from the Extreme Garage and they are clean. Why dont u try WCC in dubai they might help you.

And.....

Fellow brothers peace we all are here to help each other and not to degrade or TAUNT. So reply if you know something or else just read the comments..

Thanks and have a blessed Friday.

ThanX man, I thought so too before, but wouldn't go ahead as the bumper is stock and wouldn't go nice with the Rims...

ThanX though...

lowering springs won't give you the looks you're looking for, you need coilovers
best of luck!

There were no taunts. Sorry if you got offended but everyone was just giving honest advice .

Just goto the garage n ask them 1000 aed for lowering, how they do it. Lowering springs ( which brand, which model, get model #) or cut ur springs? That answer itself should give you an idea about the garage

+1, any workshop offering or working with lowering springs is shit.The 'warranty' offered is BS, once they have your money there is not much you can do about a shitty job. If you are on a budget and are only looking to lower your ride then go for Raceland coilovers.http://www.racelandus.com/coilovers/hon ... overs.html

I know the price looks very dodgy for coil-overs but I'm talking from personal experience, they are great coil-overs for aesthetics.

Hey Man Thanx for the info, and I planned it so to cut cost down:

17/18" Rims
Coilovers
Bumper, Front at least
Little Fender Pulling

But is there a sequence to start with, because I don't want to get one thing twice, like alignment when fitting rims & coilovers...

BTW, are the raceland anywhere in available in UAE ?

ThanX
