Good - price compared to others. Bad - you get what you pay for - do a search on APC - there are some fit/finish issues.

I have to APC body kit. I had it painted and fitted. There is only 2 problems with the kit that are the manufacturers fault.
1: The side skirts fit into the door jam and are too thick. The bottom of the door rubs on the top of the skirt. The install directions recommend you grind 1/8" off the bottom of the door!
2ne corner of the bumpre cover doesn't fit real well. This can probably be attributed to the way it was trimmed so it may not be the same with all the kits.
Over all I'm happy with the kit.I recommend that on the back bumper cover you put a piece of double sided tape where it fits on top to keep it from rubbing on the bottom of the hatch while driving.
The guys who installed my kit cut out the bottom griller area on the orginal bumper.I think it looks better that way except for the big hole. I just haven't had time to figure something to put in there.
1 Major problem that I have and that's my own fault is that I scrape quite a bit. I have lowered my Cruiser 2 inches so it's my own fault. I ended up cutting out the recessed area on the bottom of the skirt and that has helped alot!
All told you will be one of the few who have that kit. I went to the Texas Cruiser Expo and out of 183 cars there was only 1 other Cruiser tahn mine that had the APC kit. Everybody else who had kits had xenon kits.
You can look at my Cardomain sit to see what the kit looks like on mine.
