    Anderson composites do some bits.

    and then M?? concepts (I can't remember the letters after the M).


    Most of them all look the same, however there are very very very slight design differences.




    To answer the question, i know of two people with these kits in the UK/EU and the fitment according to them is "on point".

    mac has done it and was it one of the steves did the 350 front wings?

    i think most of them are all from the same oem but just rebranded you can usually tell who's is who's and which generation it is by the front splitter on them.

    so if you look at a proper lower front splitter you can see its all one piece.

    and if you look at theirs its split into 3 separate pieces

    i think mr bodykit is doing possibly the closest replica at the moment.

    but none of them have the front splitter coming out quite far enough in the outer corners if you look closely.

    For those who have done the front wings(fenders), are the replica ones wider like the genuine gt350 items, thus requiring wheel spacers or real gt350 figment front wheels? E.g the project6gr items specifically for real gt350s not the standard ones?

    I want to do project6gr and a gt350 front end if I don’t buy a real one first so would 6grs be wasted if I do bodykit later?

    i believe the 350 specific version of 6gr's are because the hubs are different between the 350 and the gt so even if the front fenders are "wider" than the standard gt items you'd still need gt wheels and not the 350 fitment.

    also i believe the 350 style fenders are no wider than normal gt fenders certainly steve's pictures doesn't seem to have the bulge out past the front light like a 350 has

    I bought the GT350 replica spoiler, wasn’t from those guys though, came in gloss black and simply bonded and double sided taped to the bootlid, fit is spot on and looks great. Mine was £249 but I’ve noticed it’s £399 now on eBay for the same item!

    Have you got a link to the one you bought? Like the idea of a spoiler, not so keen on the idea of drilling

    Thanks, that's quite a bit more than the £99 Xenonz are charging for their equivalent. Seems almost too cheap....

    One thing to remember James is that the GT350 bumper you’re looking at here is designed to fit a non GT350 S550. If you are looking to go the whole hog and get the full GT350 look you will need special front wings and bonnet to suit your bumper. It may be cheaper and neater to import genuineGT350 parts and go the whole hog. I would certainly be interested in going halves on shipping for two sets.

    Doesn’t Mac have genuine GT350 parts on his beast?

    genuine 350 parts in the composite lower crash structure etc needed runs to about 12k dollars even a full carbon fibre Anderson Composites bonnet/bumper/wings only runs to about 5k

    WHAT???? Really??

    Surely there are some rear ended GT350’s in the states that are at the breakers? I’ve seen a Black very S550 at a show that claimed to have a genuine GT350 front end?

    the 350 has a lower nose than ours (same height as the 18's but with a first gen style front on it) now if you had an 18 and wanted to go 350 it'd probably be slightly cheaper but for our versions there's a lot of parts you need not just the external panels.

    Well, all I can say is thanks!! You learn something every day!! So, are you saying the front panel thing that holds the rad and lights is different?

    location of crash mounts, inner wings, crash/rad bar, light mounts and something else are all different. there was a thread about it somewhere in the yank section that listed all the part numbers you'd need

    I can’t put my finger on it, but that front end just doesn’t look right?? It seems too narrow on the lower lip?

    because its rounded off in the corners rather than jutting out square
