Fitment

Ok - So I fitted our development piece yesterday after all the changes have been made. So far, the fitment is perfect. Everything lines up nicely and there are no gaps anywhere. The fit is very snug too, so I'm quite happy with that.

Check out the pics below. You'll see there are just 2 issues that I need to solve: First is the fact that the recessed section is not "tall" enough - there's a bit of a gap between the diffuser and the bumper. Second is that the angle of the fins is not 100%. These should be quick and easy to fix though and we should be good to go early next week. Will keep you posted...

Not a big fan of fins but it looks good.
Any chance of doing a different design and in black not carbon fiber?

fin area looks too "soft"

if you're going to have a soft flowy diffuser without hard lines, don't put fins on it, IMO

Hmm. That's one of the things that I like about it actually - that the fins are a bit flowy.

Thanks for your honesty!

If you make the fins bigger like DTM style then I would buy one in a HEART BEAT!

I wanted bigger fins too - In fact I wanted to have the entire thing made up concave instead of convex so that it dipped quite deeply under the bumber and give bigger fins as a result, but it's just too difficult to blend that because of the curvature of the bumper itself. If it were straighter I would definitely have done it...

Sorry
