I just parked on parking lot and one god [email protected]#$% red car just hit my rear fender and made huge scratches and my fender and side of rear bumper just wrecked..

Body shop estimated and came up with $950..
instead of fixing..they rcommended me to purchase bodykit which is a lot cheaper and cover the original fender.

what I know is "No limit", "Saleen", and "wide body kit"
but i only need fender flares..
Is there any website selling fender flares??

not sure if they'll sell pieces separately, but then again the full kit is waaay out of your price range. $1200 for it. however you find a cheaper version of this kit on ebay using the search terms "Focus wide body".

Questions to ask yourself if you find a cheaper pieces in a kit: Are you capable of the physical installation? Do the pieces you found need to be prepped (sanded, fitted, primed, etc),painted and clearcoated? Any of these could add substantial costs if you can't do it youself and have to have someone else do it for you. The shop repair may save you money in the long run. Make sure you understand ALL the costs associated with aftermarket pieces. There's too many horror stories of poor fitting body parts that require substantial work to make them fit correctly or end up looking like crap because they get butchered in the fitting process. Remember to by quality stuff to avoid these problems. Naturally it will cost a little more up front and should be factored in when comparing it to the repair cost.
