WW G5 kit at Honda

I went to my Honda dealer yesterday and on the wall they had the 4 piece WW G5 kit and the price is $575 and to painted is $440... Is this a good deal? The kit sounds like a good deal but the painting doesn't...

The kit is an alright price, but paint is too much!
buy the kit and paint it somewhere else..

Hey, Silver02EX, does this include installation? If so, it is not a bad deal and the dealer may cover it as a Honda accessory, or at the very least, give you a warranty on the paint.
If it doesn't include installation, you may get a better deal on paint but remember that if the kit is urethane, it has to be painted right or the paint will start bubbling and/or peeling off.

Just some food for thought...

That's not including install, and they can't cover it under warrenty, that's why I'm gonna buy it somewhere else and take it to a body shop where they have some kind of warrenty. I was thinking of taking the car to a body shop and have them match the paint and save some money and install it myself.

In that case, yes...avoid the dealer 'cause all you'll get is a hefty markup.

The price isnt that bad, but I would get it else where cause the dealer is still ripping you off.
Your best bet is to get it elsewhere and have it painted at a body shop. Most reputable places will warrent their work and paint for the life of the car.
