Don't be put off by distance. Equinox has a very good delivery company and its top quality bodywork. You won't get better!

I'm really pleased with my Equinox bodywork - but collected at the advice of others just in case. I am in Essex - so the distance to AGM was one of the reasons I ruled them out and went with Equinox.

Although, somewhat ironically, AGM does I believe produce GRP for a chap in Essex who builds these: http://www.furorecars.co.uk/

I think if i'd been closer to Barnsley than Kent I would have gone with AGM myself...

Just for reference the Equinox bodykit is about an inch higher than Saturn/NTS so is great for taller engines and obviously normal engines too

When I was looking I prefered the low line look of the AGM kit and I think its a similar height to the Saturn stuff. I did post a dimension sheet at one point not sure where it is though.

The Equinox stuff is higher so as Ben says is good for taller engines. I prefer the lower look but seeing Ben's car completed it looks pretty good to.

Tbh I've mine up along side a Saturn bodywork. Apart from the equinox bodywork looking a million times better ;-) you wouldn't notice the height difference.

I must admit I am using Saturn and equinox bodywork on the same car and while I thought Saturn provided an excellent service which I still stand by the equinox bodywork is much thicker and rigid
I can't speak about AGM although I think I saw them at a show once and I from memory the bodywork looked good

That was my biggest problem with the saturn panels i had. Especially the back panel as it was so thin and flimsy i was worried it was going to crack the gel coat if you lent against it.
