And you want it for looks, because roof spoilers in the tradional BMW sense do nothing performance. Which is fine by me. But if thats the case than it can just be some cheap wetlay stuff thats of reasonable quality and wont yellow.


But for the rest of it. Just give me some cheap fiber fenders that I can bolt onto my car and give the rest of it a rest.

Even if I get CF im gonna paint the damned stuff anyway.

Awesome response guys! I'm still in the data collection stage of this, trying to gauge how many 1ers there are in the US, what proportion would go for this, how many mod verses not, looking at designs of the popular companies for the more popular items. Sideskirts are a novel idea, and I love it. Keep the thoughts coming as I continue to speak with my associates

I'd be down for bits if the quality was there. People assume that top quality is cheap from china but standard Econ applies. Charge me a little more for a better product and it's all good
