Default Toyota's own bodykits for Innova, good?

I saw an ad today, they are selling skirts for Innova: http://touchtoyota.com/microsite/innova.html
As it is coming from Toyota, the price will include the premium of the OEM I guess. Will it be worth? Does anyone think these skirts can improve the look of Innova a bit?

These look like adding a sporty version to the Innova. For risk of being accused as a Toyota spokesperson, better get them from Toyota. However, they will be far more expensive, but at least they would have built to specs, have consistent paint quality, and would be expected to have a higher quality than the aftermarket.

Yup... the OEM accesories genreally cost a bomb especially if the name in question is Honda or a Toyota... and no we dont mind it, we love being ripped.

shinrai toyota in bombay offers a very good kit for 18k. infact its better than the oem toyota one already being sold but the new one that came today is more aggresive than that.

40k is truly insane, go to Rio, they will do a better job for that much money.

Default OEM spares a bomb!

Sure if you buy from the dealer , the accessories will drill a huge hole in your bank account. Obviously, they can send people to Japan. Infact , for the kind of margins they have in accessories, they can send every other buyer on a trip to moon.
