That piece I had done matte by IND before they shipped it out. All the exposed CF on my car will be matte to match.

I didnt get around to getting it yet. I feel it is hollow inside based on the other ones I have held. I will have a weight once I have it in hand.

Those that are interested production has already begun so the wait will be minimal when you place your order.

PICS... I didnt double side tape it because it has to go back in for paint but you get the idea.

Information to order..

The GB price is valid for one week for all orders placed by anyone/everyone. After that it will be priced at the retail price. If you had signed up for the group buy you can/will receive your piece ahead of other orders according to the numbers on the initial list. Please reference your GB number (from the list below) in the special instructions (near the end as you complete your order) so production and shipping can be moved up accordingly for you.

At this time there is only the option of a 1x1 or 2x2 weave. Hopefully something can be worked out soon with IND to have the pieces painted there with a pinstripe for those that want that option. I will keep you posted on developments. The other option is to add a vinyl stripe which I personally think is the way to go, especially for the AW guys.

Those that want to order can order the piece here...

Well if you get a group together maybe you can negotiate a price. I wouldnt know how much of a discount you can negotiate.

At this price never more tempted to go with CF. The above i guess has nothing concrete from Slek for an ABS version, correct?

Any chance from the 'early adopters' on images of the rear-side of this lip spoiler and the flow from the mounted lip towards the bottom surface panels underneath the engine bay (side underbody image from just upfront the wheels?)

Who was it that said that this lip started to come off at speed? Any idea how they fixed it?

Papethova or EinserM, any chance one of y'all snapped a head on pic from down low?

Thx

No one said that about this lip. I believe I had read a post asking about double side tape that would hold at 150+ MPH but that was unrelated to this lip, I cant recall where I read that post.

EinserM has had his car at high speed with no issues and he has 1 line of double side tape. I cant comment what brand of tape or how high the speeds are as I do not know.

I myself finished installing it yesterday. I used 2 lines of 3M tape and I have only tested it up to 100MPH so far.

Incidentally here is a pic of gloss versus matte CF for those that had asked. I will have more pics soon and will get one head on for you if Einser doesnt already have them.

Ok, I may have missed which lip was referenced then. I thought it was you that said something about someone keeping their lip on. I'm in Germany so making sure it'll hold up to high-speed is important. (The ONLY reason I BetaLinked my rear spoiler)

Thanks

No worries, I remember reading that too and thats why I added a second line of tape on my lip. Maybe Einser will chime in with the speeds which he has tested his lip. I installed his lip about a month ago now, maybe longer.

The surface area to mount the lip is much larger than the spoiler. You can add multiple strips of tape if needed. Total patch at least 6-8 inches wide.
