Looks AMAZING

Tell us about the process, maybe on what the shop needed to do?

how much did it cost too?

How much more wheel width are you able to fit?

1-Its a long process the bodykit arrived with many defects that need to be adjusted. I opened the vents and made the kit molded to make it look like OEM-ish finish. Obviously the rear bumper is F87 Retrofit and the widebody kit was for the F22 rear bumper somehow the shop made it possible.

2- costs me roughly $6K for widebody kit and installation.

3- wheel width for
Rear 11J, (295/35/19)
Front 9.5J (265/35/19)
with 22mm spacers.

Looks to me like itís the Manhart mh2 wide body kit. Possibly a replica since OP says they had defects that needed to get resolved and plus the pricing with installation was around the 6k mark only. Where as the manhart branded one is 8k usd/6.6k euros just the kit by itself.

its not the original widebody kit. its a replica made from Taiwan. the kit is fiberglass and needed some sanding and adding paste just a bit since i like the style of flush design.

you are correct! its not the real one. i got the urge to try it because i saw a youtuber who has the same kit from taiwan and it looks very similar. this kit cost is 1.7k without shipping. The shipping alone costs 1k
