take it from me mate, save yourself the time, money and head ache and leave it off!!!

i had mine put on at fibervision in welshpool. they did a good job of putting it on, moulding the lower lips, cutting out my vents, etc. the body kit was/is just a pig of a thing in quality so to fit it takes time and skill. that cost me about $2g. because im trying to get mine to 'show condition', i've had the blokes at aviation composites fixing up all the little gaps, taking of all the burrs and rough edges, modifying the bumper around the wheel arches (so i can fit my rims in) and fixing that *** front bar 'grill' (wasn't central) and air damn (warped). also doing a few other things, costing me about $2.5g! so take into account the price of the body kit itself, i've spent towards $9g just on the *** bodykit!!!!! im getting the whole car sprayed so can't tell you how much just the kit would cost to be sprayed. should look a million bucks when its done though (some photos in the motorvation thread pg4)

so yeah, i hope you have a semi decent kit, and a mate in the trade can never hurt either
good luck

If you are going to put the walky kit on, get an original kit thats been on a car before....

Aftermarket kits will take LOTS of work to make fit properly. I know of about 5 people that have bought aftermarket kits and they have said never again afterwards!
