    Just got back from Stoneleigh....Which MR2 355 Kit to buy?

    Had a great day at Stoneleigh today. Was disappointed not being able to find either Extreme or Exact355, but met some great people all the same. I've decided to build a 355 prior to even attempting a 360, purely for the fact that it's cheaper so if I cock it up I won't have lost as much. So, now I'm trying to decide on a 355 kit. At the moment I'm looking at it in the following order based on looks, price etc

    1) Exact355
    2) Roy Kelly
    3) Extreme
    4) Fiero Factory

    I'm really looking for comments and advice. Which kit do you guys reckon would be best to go for? I know a lot of people slag off the Exact355 but from the photos I think it looks pretty accurate?

    Also which kit is the 355 one that is sold at www.xoticreplicas.com? I saw it on their stand today and was pretty impressed.

    Cheers guys.

    I would say go with Extreme .....


    and in regards to www.xoticreplicas.com ... I heard on the grapevine that Robert from Extreme has left Ashley to work for Xoticreplicas .. how true that is I do not know .... maybe Ashley can fill us in on that one???

    exact355 were in the main hall,how did you miss it? ???
    the xotic kit was the old bad gen2 kit.
    this topic has been discussed many times about whos better,,more exact,etc its all about what you want, if you want accuracy then go for extreme if you want to do a cheap kit ,then dave jones(roy kelly's old kits)i wouldn't go near the exact 355, if you looked at it ,it's all wrong
    its all a matter of opinion..

    I am a DNA 360 customer and refuse from now on to be biased about the 360 but i will say this. Extremes 355 is the best by far in my opinion. I nearly did a 355 but ended up doing a 360. If I had done a 355 it would have definitely been extremes but obviously budgets come into the equation for a lot of people.
    At the end of the day, the important thing is passion, so whatever the kit or donor is the end result is down to you.
    10 people can build the same thing but 1 person will build the best cos he has got the most passion and patience.
    I am sure most builders will second this statement.
