is the assasin kit just the basic xenon kit for sedan, never heard the name just figured there was only one, but it all depends, expect to pay anywhere from 300-500 for prep and paint, they usually charge 25-50 bucks each piece they install for you, i would suggest just have them paint it, then have them wrap it up for you, then take it home, get a couple buddies, and get a diy on how to do it, it will save you like 200 bucks prob just to install yourself, may i ask how much you paid for it? and post pics when you got it done......

Midnight Accord, where did you get that quote for 35 bucks per piece install?! Its more like 100-200 painting and 400-500 install. They bill 10-12 hours for body kits, and depending how much the mechanic charges per hour. Usually a mechanic that charges about 50-55 an hour is cheap.

Installing kits isn't too difficult. Lips may be harder than full replacement bumpers though.

I had my full body kit prepped, painted, and installed for $600. The install only took like an hour though.
