I got a good look at these fenders at the track yesterday and I must say they are better quality than I expected. The seems where they met all of the other body panels were clean and the surface was straight and didn't look warped at all. I don't know how much prep time went into them before I saw them but they looked very nice and I looked at them very carefully because I was thinking of getting them also. I took a pic but it is of the whole car so it wont tell you much. I will post it here anyway for the he77 of it.

anybody know if they make some for a 1G 1990 Eagle Talon Tsi? That is exactly what I am looking for before my new paint job

I have not seen them yet for any 1g dsm.

Haha, http://smilecwm.tripod.com/net6/nuts.gif if I had this then I would have. Do you like the way it looks?

Yeah I do like the way it looks although I'm not much for all that flash with the chrome rims and graphics, but thats just my opinion. Even the fenders look nice, although I'd have to take that wing off and replace it with something more low profile.

The only thing I didn't like about it was that it made the nose of the car look shorter and snubbier (if that is a word?).

Is that a Greddy Intercooler?

I honestly don't remember what type of intercooler that was. Sorry.

Personally I think that the Z3 gills are getting played out and look pretty whack, but then again I don't know where you guys live? At least they're getting played out here in Cali. And as for the guy that was asking about 1st Gen gills...usually people just buy the gills(new style gills or old ones) and just have a body shop mold them to the fender. So you can actually do it to any car, anywhere?

Gotta question though...do you guys know what kinda side skirts those are on that Eclipse? They don't look stock?

So where exactly did you see them selling the fenders? I'm intereted, but I want to know how much, and some more picturs of it if possible :P
PumaGSX, I haven't seen any 2G with the gills on, heck, I didn't see any car other than the Z3 with the gills. I'm in Cali too.(LA) But I haven't been to that many shows, so what do I know.

NOPI has them listed for $300 per pair.

I think the Z3 fenders look okay...but I would never combine fiberglass fenders with a fiberglass front bumper on a daily driven car...if you ever crash you'll be eating your engine...

Even the stock sheet metal doesn't stand up too good if the impact is at more than 10mph. I know, I was hit at 15 and it caused $4517 worth of damage.
