Fiberglass fenders?

So I've been thinking about getting some new fiberglass fennders from cobalt addiction.com Mostly just to loose some weight. Any opinions?

I have never delt with after market body panels on my cobalt.But i HAVE on other cars. And they almost NEVER fit properly. Plus keep in mind if you paint them you will have to color match the whole front end of your car. So idealy you will have yo fade into the doors hood and bumper. So it could be a bit more pricey than you expect. Plus the shipping IS insane.

other than taht I do like them. Would go very well with a nice Fiber glass hood.

ive alway liked the L3's myself.
not going to spend that kind of money w/paint though. dont really care about appearance THAT much myself.
not to mention, it wouldnt look good w/o a body kit. then your'e talking some cash.
