Who wants carbon fiber splitters?

A fellow member fmxomar on 1addicts is making ABS plastic splitters for the 135i M-Tech Front bumber. If we have enough interest, he will make CF ones as well.

Their is a revised version that is being built, and their is a groupbuy going on for the ABS version right now for $100 shipped. Given the price of the abs version, the CF version will be very reasonably priced as well.

Lets get a group of people together so we can get these made!

I'll start out:

1.) rcracer_tx


The original design:

You're on the groupbuy for the ABS version of his right now, so I guess you trust him

Next time he's on, I'm sure he will be able to answer the question on construction of these splitters....

cf overlay would be more expensive then just the abs version.. so not 100$.. yet way less expensive then full carbon fiber

it would be over the top portion of the abs and painted either matte or glossy

but think about it if it was real carbon what performance benefit would it serve?

abs plastic is more resilient than carbon fiber and be less likely to shattering.

but we can have it done either way. full cf will be more costly.

I guess i'll have to see how this looks like after you have a prototype ready.
For now I'll stick to basic abs plastic in the other thread.
