well glad you asked, I have the erebuni bodykit on my 300CE....

Lets just say, don't waste your money. there are several things I will tell you about it.

1. It needs to be fitted by a professional body shop.
2. Ready for paint is not what it really is, it requires filling, some adding on and lots of sanding to prepare it for paint.
3. Mounting points are weak and break easily. I have had to re fiberglass mine a few times already. It's not fun and messy! - also, if you bump anything, the paint will crack, because the fiberglass will crack!
4. Bumper supports - these have to be removed to fit the erebuni kit on, this means if you get into an accident, = way more damage to your car
5. Fiberglass gets wavy over time.
6. Vibrations can get annoying, I'm still working on fixing this issue.
7. Fiberglass is not top quality.
8. and lastly, fog lights in the bumper bounce, due to fiberglass.

Save your money and buy a real kit made out of polyurethane, fiberglass is not worth the savings.

For a bit more you can buy a real polyurethane kit and save yourself major headaches.

the only plus is, when all is said and done, the kit looks nice, but it's a headache, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
