Well I meant from the point of it being chosen and them working on it... They should know how long it would take them to duplicate a lip regardless of which lip it is. Try to find out. I wouldn't want to wait 6 months.

Which is why I will try to convince them to do a 2nd lip later on but no date on that yet.
Well I agree and disagree with your statements.. I agree about the business perspective and the supply vs demand thing.

However I think there are more Icarbon's out there because of the 3 situations below for lips people will possibly jump on if available:

Vorsteiner - never really got into production so not much photos
3D - very expensive and not available in carbon fiber
Icarbon - Was readily available at some point, huge marketing, huge forum presence, looks like a prototype of what Vorsteiner was going to make.

But yes thank you for your efforts on the 2nd lip though I'd prefer a full bumper replacement lol.. just a wish

I want to retract my vote for Kerscher and vote for the Hamman style!! Also, I really don't understand the votes for the iCarbon front lip design.. is it because that's all we ever really see on the forums and thus everyone wants to get one (sort of like the VMR CSL reps)??
Wait till you see my pics of the Kerscher lip haha

iCarbon as a company fitament and price might have been shit. But the simple truth is the design of it is way better. Lips should be simple....

I can't speak for others but i like to "enhance" the stock look of a car. I want my car to be modded, but tastefully.... iCarbon or Hamann lip could easily be stock pieces. The rest of these lips and other lips not mentioned try to change way too much in my opinion and simply look bad and a lot of times rice.

IMO theres a clear reason iCarbon design wins, its simple, flows with the natural curvature of the bumper, and looks the cleanest. It doesn't take away from the flow of the car and allows for a nice flow of black or carbon fibre with dark wheels, tint, and a diffuser. That's its goal, to complete a look and keep the car clean which I think is what most users out there are after, hence, its big lead in this poll.

I would agree with you, but I think your opinion of how the iCarbon looks is skewed because we see it all the time on these forums on "clean" and tastefully modified cars. I'd argue that if we had an equal amount of cars sporting the iCarbon and Hamann lip, you'd be just as likely to argue that the Hamann is cleanest.

dcho's car comes to mind (pictured in post #22)... man that thing is

I think Hamann is equally as clean, I simply like an extension look to the bumper rather than another piece under the body.

Alfugen..but those particular wheels were in 3'er offsets...they did a group buy for 1'er offsets of the same wheel in 19's..check the commercial section.

I like how aggressive their splitters are and it might look real nice if they take that design and modify it a bit into a front lip.
This is a good idea - would be similar to the 3d -

iCarbon def had some fitment issues, like it was already stated, the middle part was coming loose and a few people got cracks after a while.

IMO, its the design thats faulty, when made out of CF, the piece is too rigid to be able fit properly. If the same design was made using urethane, it would fit perfectly but in CF, it just doesnt work. Think this is why it took them so long to make the lip, I'm sure they ran into this issue

although Hamann is not on the list, I think this is the best route for them.

so I switch my vote from 3D to Hamann

Three days left on the poll.

I will talk to Mike after the poll closes and tell him about the fitment issues on iCarbon you guys brought up.
