    Fibreglass is very brittle in comparison to ABS (plastic), as such it is less forgiving when knocked.

    If you've seen two sets that are the same, the fibreglass ones may be copies.

    I got the reiger plastic ones too. Every body shop i spoke to about fitting were weary about working with fibreglass ones for some reason

    re: side skirts

    If you saw the Rieger side skirts made of fibreglass then these are copies. Pay the extra and get the ABS skirts, you`ll see why when you have them fitted.
