Check out my next purchase!

What do you guys think of these? Allot of people have been asking about them and now **********s finally has a pict and a price. 199 for the two carbon fiber splitters. NO PAINTING! I think this is going to look great on my car. Especially after I take the front plate off, switch the halos to white, paint the lower mesh, and black out the grill. By my calculations all that should cost less the 350! Cant wait!

I'm not a big fan of splitters, but I am a big fan of not having to paint anything!

They should look good on your black car... I absolutely hate it when people put CF on other colors.

Yeah I agree that this type of thing would look best on a black car like mine. I dont know if im going to buy all black grills or just black out the center like you did Racey. I go back and forth on that all the time. I think that first I will try just doing the centers on my stock ones. If im still not happy then I will do the all black ones.

M-areo? You mean the OEM M-tech? Yeah that one is bad ass but they dont even sell it in the states anymore and it requires allot more work. This is probably what my car is going to look like except the splitters are carbon fiber rather then painted.

I will. Hey thanks for the link! That other car looks pretty sick and close to mine especially with the M6 reps. Except, I have white and red roundels, I am going to do the carbon fiber lip, CF mirror covers, CF m3 spoiler, and I think the CF grills. Hell if I had the money I would do the CF Vorstiener power dome hood (partially painted) and the CF Vorstiener trunk lid.

Hey Racey,

You've got Dinan software right? How do you like it? Worth it?

That looks pretty good man - be careful if you're ever considering a suspension upgrade. Even with my stock bumper, I'm scraping all over the place....and that's with MAX ride height!

Regarding Dinan - I'm not a big fan. I guess I don't see the point unless you REALLY believe that the tunes will cause engine failure. One of the other guys has it on his XI and he's getting like 260whp uncorrected. With V2, we're getting around 320whp uncorrected at altitude. Granted, it's I vs. XI, but I can't imagine that drivetrain losses can't explain all 60whp difference.

If you'd like to feel what V2 is like, I'll be down in Pueblo second weekend in July. I can take passengers ---as long as you use the bathroom first. Last person who rode with me on track got a little ummm, wet. Guess 1.2Gs in a corner is not something normal people are used to, lol.

No, I don't have Dinan, I have JB1 and Logic HVI intake only. DrEvil is the one with Dinan chip and exhaust.
