And as for the remaining options. Dev work has started on the quad cut-out and then both this one and a quad cut-out with fins. I'll have an update on all 3 of the new moulds on Friday next week - along with pics of the development pieces!

Ciao for now

Looking good!

Ok, that photo is very promising... I like that it is tastefully designed. Also, thanks for letting us LCI dual exhaust (335i) owners know that it *will be* coming even if it will be a while. Looking forward to installed photos.

hello all:

I am not a regular on this site but I am VERY interested in this product. Could you email me at bellenbecker@live.com when this will be ready to order.

I have a 2011 328i E90 and at $300ish this is a must buy for me!

Does the carbon fiber smooth out at the edge to make a flush appearance to the bumper? Just curious. Really awesome product. I was looking at over a $1000 for a performance rear bumper with paint and install but I like this with a set of carbon fiber front splitters...

Will definitely let you know as soon as it's ready.

It is just a flat piece which might require some beading tape to fit it. Check back tomorrow morning for an update as I'm testing fitment this afternoon.

Just curious, but do you think you might have an E90 LCI (328) up by Christmas time? I can almost guarantee would purchase it, but I don't want to put carbon fiber splitters on the car without eventually being able to add this product?

So... Update on the fitment. I only managed to get hold of the car around 7pm which means it was quite dark already and so I don't have any pics to share with you right now. Will take tomorrow morning.

There's a bit of bad news though - the fitment wasn't 100% I have a feeling that the bumper I'm working off of was a bit warped as it's a bit raised towards the sides. It's on and fitted with beading tape holding the top and sides down, but I really do think that I'm going to have to re-cast it

I'll post the pics tomorrow morning first thing and then let you know what happens once I've spoken to the moulder about the fitment.

Minor set-back, but I'd rather get the fitment 100% before we go any further with this...

So... Here are some photos of the final product (for now). We had to use a lot of beading tape to hold down the sides because as I mentioned above it doesn't quite follow the contour of the bumper properly

Am visiting the moulder on Monday to discuss how we can rectify this, but this should give you a good idea of what will be available when we get it 100%









Will give you guys an update after the discussion with the moulder on Monday... Sorry about this...

Ah, just a minor setback

Better to wait till fitment is dead on as you stated.

Make sure you try it on a car with the dual exhaust tips on DS instead of that funky turned down tip on the diesel, to confirm how the tips look in the cutout and that they fit with no clearance/hitting issues.

yea a white car or something would represent things better.

the flush right side looks pretty good. the left side shows me what could go wrong if the fit isnt perfect (which i know you are already addressing)

Would look better around the exhaust for sure if it was straight down like that.
