You and me, both! My car hasn't even entered production yet, so it'll be a few months, unfortunately.

Love the pics, I might be sold! What size drill bit and self-tapping screws do you use? I'm not terribly handy....

I wonder if they're just reselling this one. Or is their quality actually better?

That one is entirely different. That's a three-piece front lip. The one I shared is one piece. I can only speak to the one I have, and let me tell you, the carbon fiber weave is fantastic. The quality is fantastic. We'll see how the fitment is, but based on what I've heard/read/seen, I don't foresee any problems.

I see. Thanks for the feedback. I bought another cheap one from eBay which I did not really like as it looked like cheap plastic with sharp edges so am looking for another one that's ideally not too expensive and also looks nice.

Btw do you know of any similar side skirts? I'm having a very hard time finding one.

Mine actually just came in. Now the wait for the car...








Thank you for taking time to post some close up shots....Looks like a nicely constructed piece. Following up with some video footage in case anyone is interested in a live view.

They make really nice stuff. I really like the CF grill he offers. That front lip looks great but I was turned off by it not using the factory holes. Id prefer not to have to drill new holes into my bumper even from underneath. If it used the same holes I probably would have already purchased.

Man, I should get some sort of commission, no? 😂

No, in all seriousness, I'm glad I could help out. I'm probably going to be ordering the Carbon fiber performance style trunk lip from them, as well.

It's not quite my style. But I'd prefer to see it in person before making a final judgement.

Fitment is good. I have no complaints. Came in a gloss black. Easy to install.
