My experience with nicedeals.co.uk

First a little history. About 8 months ago i purchased a prior design front bumper from euro spec. With intentions of getting the whole kit. Love the bumper. the skirts are a little funny I was going to go gtr until i found what seemed to be the prior design rear bumper and side skirts for a much cheaper price. (they call it the GT1) I could get the skirts and the rear for less then what i paid for the front bumper. I paid $850 shipped for the front. $570.34 to be exact shipped for the rear and the skirts.
So i purchased the rest of the kit to be delivered to my shop in ft lauderdale. Well the bumper got shipped to me in the keys and the skirts to my shop. Shipping was quick. Less then 3 weeks. Got a call from the post office yes the regular post office telling me i had a big package to pick up. So i was happy. Until i got there. No box just a bumper wrapped in paper. I knew that was bad. Got it home unwrapped it and found damage in 3 places one real bad. Called my shop he said he got the skirts and that they were damaged too.
So took my rear to a local fiberglass place and he fixed my rear bumper so you wont see any damage once painted. So this weekend I'm going to pick up my skirts and have them fixed.
Did i get what i wanted? Who wants to get broken sh1t. Nobody. But did i save money? Most likely. Bumper cost me $200 to fix and I'm figuring another $200 to fix the skirts. So that's 970. to get the kit back to usable condition.
Prior designs rear bumper $750 euro spec
prior designs side skirts $599 euro spec
That's before shipping.
So i ended up with damaged but fixable prior designs rep bumper and skirts.
Lets see how the fitment goes and then ill post some pics.


Nothing bad to say about euro spec. My front bumper came in a huge a55 box with no damage. I will still use them in the future.


I realise most of you fanatics wont shop there most of there kits are nasty ***** sh1t. I just wanted to let everyone know my experience.

Did you contact nicedeals.co.uk and give them a chance to fix the situation? If so, what did they say?

Yes. I emailed them with no response. I emailed them before the purchase and they did tell me im to repair minor damage. Im not crying about it. I just wanted to give people the heads up. Monday she goes to the body shop for paint and install.
If every thing fits ill be damn happy
