    Classic Euro Parts

    Anyone have experience with Classic Euro Parts? Specifically a front valance? Considering buying a M Techic valance for a euro bumper 87is from them off eBay.

            I ordered a valance on there when they had that closeout a year or two back before they changed their shipping around. It was cheap and delivery came as expected. I don't think they're shady or anything. I would be curious as to the fitment of their body kit pieces.

              Me too. I thought decent OEM euro bumpers were hard to find. I think finding a euro "is" valance is gonna be worse.

                I have their M tech 1 kit and like the quality of the material. However, my only gripes would be that their reproduction pieces are not 1:1 copies of the originals. For example, their m tech front spoiler doesn't have the backing for the foglight adjusters like the stock one has so you will have to just aim the fogs and silicone or epoxy them into position. My biggest gripe are that the side skirts are slightly wavy where they meet the body line under the door and they don't mount like stock ie pushing the clips into holes in the rocker panel. Their skirts mount from the side, bottom and they recommend some type of epoxy on top. Not a huge deal as I dislike the idea of drilling holes but at least make the skirts straight where it meets the body line. My car is white so the black sills stood out in the gaps. My solution was using white caulking. When I bought this kit several years ago it was $800 shipped and people were asking $2300 for broken OEM. I think they have since raised the price so you may want to consider which is the better way to go.

                  Are they the outfit on eBay selling OEM plate fillers for $400 and mtech steering wheel badges for $120? I don’t know anything about they quality of their replicas, but clearly they are opportunistic hustlers hoping to rip off some poor schmuck enthusiasts who doesn’t know they are marking up OEM parts 4-500%

                    I just can't bring myself to send them $650 even though we want to get the bumpers on after finally finding some.

                      Good idea. The side skirts are somewhat wavy where they meet the body line beneath the door, and they don't install like standard, with clips pushed into holes in the rocker panel. Their skirts are attached from the side, the bottom, and the top using epoxy. It's not a big concern because I despise drilling holes, but at the very least, make the skirts straight where they meet the body line.
