Want to trade your old body kit? Extreme Dimensions: Aero Trader


CLICK THE IMAGE TO APPLY TODAY!!!

Do you have old, used or damaged aerodynamic parts lying around? Do you want to change the look or style of your car, but don't have the funds to do so? Extreme Dimensions is now offering Aero Trader: a convenient solution for selling or trading aerodynamic parts for your vehicle. With our new Aero Trader program you can easily sell us your used parts or trade them in for something new. Complete the form to have your parts considered for purchase or trade.

AERO TRADER FAQ:

What steps do I need to take to sell my parts?
You must first complete the Aero Trader form and send us detailed photos of the parts you would like to trade or sell.

What types of photos do you need and how many should I take?
The more detailed the photos, the easier it is for us to come up with an offer. You should send us photos of each part you want to sell or trade, and be sure that the photos provide a complete view of the part. If the part is damage then we will need clear photos of the damage. The more photos you provide, the easier it will be for us to consider purchasing your part. All photos should be clear and in focus.

Will you consider buying my damaged parts?
We may purchase your damaged parts, depending on the extent of the damage and overall condition of the part. Be sure to send us plenty of photos of the damage to help us in deciding on an offer.

When will I find out if you're going to buy my parts?
Most offers we receive are responded to within 72 hours.

How much money will you give me for my parts?
There are many different factors that we take into consideration when purchasing a part. The final offer price will be based on the condition of the part, the original selling price, and the part's current fair market value.

What happens if you decide to buy my parts?
After a purchase or trade has been approved it will be your responsibility to ship your parts to our warehouse in Fullerton, CA. You may also drop them off yourself. If a trade has been agreed upon, then the new parts will be shipped to you free of charge.

How will I get paid?
After we receive a valid tracking number for the parts being shipped to us, we will mail you a check.

Apply Here ---> Welcome to Extreme Dimensions: Aero Trader

Lets keep try to keep this on topic! Thanks all!

This is for all body kits, whether we carry it or not. Just a way to give back to the community, think of it as cash for something that you may not need or want anymore. You're more likely to get more money from us then from selling it on your own. It's like those companies that buy iPhones.

Well, what if you have a kit that we already carry, but yours fits better then the one we have? Molds get old at the end of the day, if we don't continue to update our molds, with better parts then we won't be around for another 10 years. We've done well and continue to grow, its time we give back to the community too!

If the kit is something that you do not produce, what will you do with it?

Do you produce anything that are your own designs or do you copy everything?

Is your intent to copy anything you buy back?

I am concerned like others have mentioned...

"updating design" by taking other newer designs other companies have come out with.

Looks pretty clear what the intent is.

I think we're digging into this the wrong way. You guys are open to think what you'd like, but we are trying to start something new. An opportunity for people to get rid of what they don't want. We can always recycle/resell the kits too, after repairing them. If we don't have something that is missing in the market and we come across it, then why not reproduce the kit, rather then let it die out? I wasn't really expecting this much negativity from the MR2 community, especially when the car is about 20 years old now. We have to think about the future used MR2 buyers who may not have access to as much when they get the car. Atleast thats one way to look at it.

I feel like the negativity is a result of the roundabout way in which you're stating your motives.

We know that this is to be able to make "copies" of old body kits.
Only problem I see with doing thing is people who spent booku money on a rare jdm lip that isn't made anymore being butthurt because people can buy the same thing now for less.

It messes with the exclusivity factor.

Kinda like how Rota makes copies of classic japanese wheels.


I don't care. I wouldn't mind having access to a lot of different kinds of body kits

It stupid to have to pay big bux for an old busted lip because its rare and makes you think your street cred is through the roof.
Im sure lots of people would love to have reasonably priced parts that look good too.
I think people should stop hounding the guy and trying to make him look like hes out to do bad things..
Yea he is going to make money but hes doing it by making parts for people.
Anyone in their right mind would do the same, if they had the resources.

Is your issue with the legality or the morality ?
If it's the morality, well then that's your deal.
If it's the legality, then do you also think it's not a big deal for some company to make a phenomenal front body piece, then take them out of production and now nobody can have them ? If they've decided there's no market and they refuse to make/sell any more, people are just supposed to live with it and deal with the fact they can't get the perfect piece to go with the rest of the car ?
I'm not defending this thread, since sure there's a huge margin to do wrong, but I love the idea of

How many people have seen the Tom's Louvers for the tail light center piece and looked to get one, only to find there's like 3 left and they're outrageous.
Nobody else is allowed to have them because they weren't in the scene when they came out ? Or perhaps were having a bit of financial trouble and just couldn't spend a bunch of money on a center panel cover. They're boned forever now, or if someone who had the resources and know-how to reproduce a perfectly good replica, then why not ? Allow the community to get the stuff they desire that is now discontinued. That idea pretty much rocks.

Because people who own the trademarks, still own the trademarks, regardless of whether they continue to sell them. If ExtremeDimensions wants to sell them, they should contact the trademark owner and license the product.

If you guys dont like what extreme dimensions is trying to offer then keep the comments to yourself.

I dont see what the big deal is. If people didnt copied one another things would be completely different now.

People talk about trademarks and licenses but that doesnt stop you from buying a greedy replica sidemount, or that knockoff border front.

Thats just like when you go to walmart, im almost positive most people buy the walmart brand versus buying the real brand. I mean we all do it at one point in time.

Besides the man has to make money one way or another.

This isn't a criticism of their product, or someone's car or choice of modifications, it's their business ethics. The board owner has posted:

Specifically he was talking about short shifters, but if the board owner has specifically posted about supporting the innovators and not the imitators, I'd think it's fair game.

And actually it DOES stop ME from buying replicas and knockoffs.

Regardless of the fact its not gonna make any difference to sit there and whine about what his company is doing. Obviously he payed his fee as a vendor and is trying to do his job.

Like I said before if you don't support what he doing which is fine because your entitled to your own opinion then don't post in it and keep moving.

It's because I disagree with it that I post here. So if I pay a fee as a vendor, does that give me license to copy stuff? Can I order holymr2's lip, copy it, and undercut his pricing?

I've sent a message to the mods regarding this thread, because I hope that they won't allow this to continue on this board. I acknowledge that it will continue to happen, but that doesn't mean it has to happen here. I'd like to think this board is above that. If they disagree with me they'll just delete this discussion.

If you disagree with me, don't post and keep moving. See how that works?

I see this has turned into a back and forth debate on whats right and whats wrong. I think valid points have been brought up on both sides, people who disagree with what we're doing and the others who don't see any harm in what we're doing. Obviously you know what my bias opinion is on the matter. But at the end of the day, this really is meant for people to get rid of of their old, tired, damaged kits. What we do with the items we purchase or trade for is really only up to us. As much as all the feedback is appreciated from both sides, we are only trying to give everyone a wider variety of exterior modifications, that don't cost an arm and a leg and where you don't have to wait 6 months to get the part from overseas. Now that everyone has given their 2cents, which I highly appreciate the negative's and the positive's. Can we just stick to the topic? Thanks all!


For those who have submitted an application we are in the process of forwarding all of our backlogged emails to our current email. So bare with us until we fix this problem. Thanks!
