I know 2 people with the prodrive rb5 replica and it's awesome. Very high quality... close to as good as the original at half the price. It's the one that is 350 :) I'm gonna pick up one myself this month :)

I think replica spoilers should be fine, but really look at the quality of body kits. You don't want it cracking like all the kitted Hondas out there.

I have been driving with my Version 6 wing, and it looks great. It is a replica that I purchased from Revolutions Motorsports (I-club's group buy back in july 2001). Replica's tends to be imperfect with blobs or little dents in some places. Mine is lasting through the 0 degree F weather in Minnesota and it's not chipping or cracking. :happynow: Make sure you have enough funds and get your parts painted at a reliable body shop so the paint'll last.

It's a double edged sword. For wings and aero stuff, I'd say that most replica's are fine (minor imprefections, but generally OK) as for body kits though... You get what you pay for.

I think AFS has some pretty good replica parts, wings mostly. I haven't heard anything of their body kits. If you talk to Accuirt Performance on the i-club, he should be able to get you a pretty good deal on the Trial kit.

i say if you arn't going for areodyamics as in flying at speed, not often....then a replica is a better buy.

IMO, replicas are not my deal. The real deal is better to me. Well i don't own a car at the moment, but i would buy the real thing thoug, be cause of th quality and worksmanship. That way i don't have to worry about uneven bumpers, cracking wings, and ugly shape. Heck some 22B replicas look so ugly. Looks more like a WRX wing than the nice edges of the 22B STi wing.

IMHO, if you are just looking for looks and dress up, the replica is a better buy.
