    Default Factory Kits

    Do you think manufactures should offer their racing body kits (i.e. wrc, touring car. dtm, etc...) kits to the public?

    I've heard rumers that skoda where going to offer the kits as a factory option... for the fabia, based on the wrc kit.

    well yes and no...

    there would be people running around thinking they have the "sickest ride" on the streets as they have the official WRC kit.

    but it would be nice to have decent kits from the factory.

    I looked at the 306 Body kit but it was going to cost an arm + leg + lung + kidney.

    Have you looked at DIMMA ?

    Ya, i've looked at the Dimma kits, but i would want steel as i know with the amount of gravel driving the fiberglass kits would become demolished in no time...

    i think it's 800 euro a corner for just the arch from pug sport for the metal kits

    General Notes
    Please note that some kits are not available as seperate components, except in the event of accident damage to a Dimma Kitted car. Prices for seperate components are available on request and shipping is not free. In this instance you are advised that the kits are designed to fit as a complete kit and seperate components will not fit an unkitted vehicle.

    Fitting Service

    As part of a move back to the design, manufacture and distribution of Dimma branded products, we now fit the kits. The following is a basic price list for fitting the kits.

    Basic Fitting Prices for Wide Arch Kit:

    Basic Fitting: 750 inc VAT
    Finishing and spraying: 2,250 inc VAT
    Total From 3,000 inc VAT excluding the price of the kit.
    Fittin of Wide Track Conversion: 250 inc VAT

    Basic Fitting Prices Concept Kit:
    The following prices for fitting a Concept kit [Saxo or 206] apply only to the complete kit. We do not fit individual components.

    Fitting and spraying: 1000 inc VAT excluding the cost of the kit.

    These points apply to the above prices.

    All fitting quotes exclude the cost of the kit or components.

    The basic fitting is simply fitting the kit to the vehicle and does not include a blending of components or finishing in preperation to spraying.

    The above finishing and spraying quote does not include any special finishes and applies only to where the vehicle is sprayed in the original basic colour. Any requests for alternative paint finishes would either have to be specially quoted for or referred to a specialist. We reserve the right to refuse a request for fitting and spraying beyond our basic package.

    Kits are still available on a supply only basis if required. In this instance we recommend that you seek out a reputable local body shop to fit and spray the kit. Dimma cannot take responsibility for errors made when the kits are fitted by inexperienced and/or unqualified body shop specialists. Any modification to your vehicle is undertaken at your own risk and Dimma cannot take any responsibility in the event that you encounter problems.
