I have purchased from them before.

Marie is very nice to me and even helped set me up with a buyer for the foglights i didn't need anymore.

She always responds to my messages (even late at night on weekends) and offered to help me out with various part issues when i had an accident a few months ago.

Fitment is OK. I asked a lot of members who got the lip if anyone was able to achieve perfect fitment and the general agreement is no. Always short by the edge of the fender, and always sticks out by the vent area no matter how much the bumper is manipulated. It could be the lip or it could be poor tolerances on the bumper manufacturing... who knows.

I'm not sure who the elusive "boss" over there is, but he doesn't keep spares in stock, so if you receive a defective piece (they claim they check all of them, which may be true) or a more likely scenario of lost/damage items in the mail, you're crap out of luck until the next boat arrives from taiwan. What kind of business does that? Unless you're clearing out your inventory to bring out an improved replacement, you don't zero out your stock. That's completely illogical and leaves both you and the customer helpless when the time for real "customer service" comes.

I recently broke my lip and wanted to buy a new one. Modmy3 wouldn't work with me on the price, which after giving it some thought, i found quite insulting considering i'm a repeat customer. They would not even match the price i paid for the first lip from which is only a $25 difference. I may sound like i'm ranting and bitter, but the community does need to know where their "vendor support fund" is going when they pay a 300% premium over wholesale.

Let's be realistic. Do you have any idea how inexpensive these extremely simple CF over FRP overlay pieces really are? And buying them in bulk?

It's no secret, vendors are a ripoff.

I ordered some M3 splitters based on this thread. Hopefully they'll fit with just a little trimming of the sides.

'08

i'm excited to put it on too. i'm hoping it's a slight variation and a little thicker (it seems that way from the pics) so it stands up to scraping better

i'll take some photos with it installed. from what i can tell, no very noticeable weave pattern issues. looks pretty good unmounted.

it's different from the original one i ordered. they (ebay guys) asked if i wanted to try another style and i went for it. similar shape though.
