    Question Rieger body kits

    Are these kits any good? Do they fit snug (no moding) And is there anywhere cheaper to get them excluding thier website?

    Cheers arron

    Genuine Rieger kits (ABS plastic ones) like mine are a perfect fit - well the front bumper is, the rear is just an apron that attaches to the rear bumper, the skirts are a good-ish fit

    Mine just fit badly all round due to the fact I angle grinded my old ones off!

    The GRP ones avail on ebay and the likes may not be such a good fit and will probably require professional rework and installation by a bodyshop

    How do u mean goodish fit? and also how does the rear apron go on? Oh i was thinking of just having the rieger front splitter not the bumper. Is this still a good/easy fit.

    seeing as i have the full front bumper I cant say

    if its original i would expect it to be a perfect fit

    the skirts arent exactly perfect at the front - maybe its the norm for aftermarket skirts maybe its just the set ive got

    they fit dont get me wrong - no modding was required just look a bit basic where it tucks into the front arch

    Still my fave kit for the G imo

    mine was a copy of the reiger infinity splitter kit which was a cheap fiberglass ones. I (never done any work in a body shop) fitted mine in a total of 3 days on and off waiting for filler to dry etc. i also flushed some of the aches and joning surfaces. wasn't me who sprayed them though
