    Okay, to answer the question.

    I wouldn't touch the seller with a 10ft barge pole as I use reputable power sellers when buying products for my car. Whilst there are some quality fibreglass products out there the majority are sh*t, they don't fir correctly and reflect poor workmanship.

    Fibreglass items are not as durable as ABS Plastic.

    The arches (design wise) look nice. I once considered fitting the Reiger arches to my car to complete the kit but these too were poor quality and required a lot of vehicle prepping and bodywork which would not be reversible

    I agree with Rym-I wont go for fibre glass I had my front bumper reversed into by an idiot with a towbar-had this been fibreglass I would have had to have gotten a new one but been ABS I have sorted it out with by heating it up with a hairdryer and pressing it back into shape
