Default Interested in a body kit for your Bonneville? Please vote!

I have been talking with Extreme Dimensions product line. They currently do not offer a body Kit. However, they will consider producing it if there is a big enough demand. If I know of anyone else interested in acquiring the same item they would be willing to work with me to try and put together a group buy if enough people show interest. If you have any further questions in regards to this email or any of our other products please
feel free to e-mail or call them at 1-888-611-AERO. You can also visit them online
at www.extremedimensions.com. Also you can pm me and let me know your name and address and if you are interested. Warning Seriuos inquiries only! If you want to see what I am trying to go with check out some of the 95-99 eclipse body kits online! There are several ideas in the works and I am trying to figure out something that will give them a lower stance and follow the factory lines! I have a 97 bonneville SSE, so this would be for bonnevilles 92-99, and newer bonnevilles are also welcome to give some input for a kit for the 00-05 Bring you ideas to the table! I will send them our results! . REMEMBER that you still need to vote even if you are just interested! I just need people to show they are interested even if they can't afford it at this time or even a year from now!

If they weren't really expensive and looked good then anything is possible. Might I suggest getting drawings together about style ideas. If enough people ar einterested maybe there could be a body kit AND Bonne owners could have an influence on the design.

If it was priced reasonably and looked good, which I'm sure it would, I would definitely consider buying it. Sketches would help a lot. Even if they're really rough.

This kit would more than likely be under $800 to the average consumer. Keep in mind that the more people who will order the cheaper the kit! Group dicounts! I would say we could get them for around $600 or less if we can get more people interested. ( at least 10-20) I contacted the company and asked for drawing ideas they might have. Should hear something soon! I wont be back until the 10th, but I'll try to keep you posted. Please tell anyone who may be interested to at least vote, even if they can't afford it! We have to show them how many people are interested, not just ones willing to buy at this very moment!!!!!!!!!!!! Then we will worry about how many people we need to get our discounts! (would you be interested...not will you buy one!)

That'* still a reasonable price. I know more people are interested in this but just haven't seen it yet. Come on everybody. This a great idea.

i might be interested, but it would all depend on cost (preferably <$300). but more importantly, i don't know that this will generate much interest because the general concensus in these forums is that everybody loves the bonnie just the way it is. plus i'd say the majority of guys (and gals) who do mods like the idea of having a sleeper. i don't mean to discourage you, it'* just the reality of the situation. more power to you if this can pick up some steam. if the kit doesn't drastically alter the lines of the car i might give it a look.
