    Kits out there??

    Ok guys, I have been looking thru all the posts here and there and looking at different kits out there, I have made up my mind on getting a kit the first of August I would like to keep the price in the range of $4000 - $8000 US funds. I want to go with one of two cars a F355 or a Diablo and I have a few questions I know you guys can anwser.

    1. is there any kits out there for a F355 thats a full body kit ie everything like the Brazil 911's where I can build my own tube frame, I own a machine shop thats why I ask?

    2. which of the F355 and the Diablo kits is the most realistic, I mean is closest to the real thing?

    3. when I buy one of these kits is there any instructions on assembly or anything that will help guide me with the build process?

    4. reference to question one if it is not avalible which of the F355 kits the fiero and the MR2 kits is closest to actual size shape and has the better handling?

    5. which companys produce the best kits for the money that has there prices posted that I can review, I have checked out powerhouse website but no prices and the F355 MR2 kit is the same as the one on a UK based company thats listed for $2995 UK funds, is that where powerhouse gets his or what? also does anyone know the price of the kit at Powerhouse website?

    thats about it for now I know I will have more questions later, thanks in advance.

    I would say that that we all pretty much agree the AD 355 is the best fiero based 355
    http://www.powerhousesports.net/features/ad355.html
    8500.00 for the spyder plus shipping
    9000.00 for the Coupe plus shipping
    Replica Interiors available as well.

    The Mr2 355 Is quite amazing as well.
    http://www.powerhousesports.net/features/mr2355.html
    roughly 9000.00 plus shipping from the UK

    As for diablos.. It is my feeling that D&R has one of the best products and reputations.
    NAERC Is also a great product and has about a 7-10 month back log if I recall.

    Price wise if you want the BEST I dont believe you will spend less than 8500.00 for the kit of any make of 355 and about 11,000.00 or more for diablos.

    I have located a stash of original Gen Two Mirage F355 kits! Exceptional pricing some $3000 LESS than I paid for mine two years ago. In perfect condition.

    The Infamous Mirage 355 for the price of an IFG Close!

    I saw a nice Lambo on ebay tonight. It looks like you can get it under 30K. The car is beautiful, Black over cream.

    It was pretty wasn't it

    Nothing to report on NAERC. I can't find a soul that's ever bought from them. Odd?

    Maybe... maybe not. They have a GORGEOUS website though. Someone clearly spent some time. Maybe they are just getting started. Who knows.

    I'm not giving them a BAD review... just a "nothing to review" for now.
