Finally making some progress

Hi All

I went passed the moulders on Friday and it seems that we're finally making progress. They've taken a mould of the bumper itself and will being modifying. The good thing about this one is that we won't need to modify then recast like we had to with the M-Tech / M-Sport version because this piece will literally just fit over the existing bumper. The pic below has the mould in front and you can see the bumper in the background. They should have a part fabricated within the next few days for us to start testing.

Again - apologies that it is taking so long, but we'll get there...

It goes up too high. A diffuser looking add on will only look good on the LCI rear bumpers, they don't go up as high.

This is what I'm planning on doing.

that looks sick

Diffuser Update

Hey Guys

Finally got something more substantial... I was around yesterday morning and they've created a first pass at a part for the stock bumper. It hasn't been trimmed, polished and clear-coated yet but at least it's something. The final part should be ready by Friday.

Here's the part overlayed on the bumper before cutting etc.



And here's the line that I was thinking of doing the trimming on. It basically follows the contour of the bumper exactly. Let me know your thoughts as we can always change it...


Where to from here:
1. Create mould for quad cut-out (supposedly shouldn't take that long)
2. Modify and create new mould for same part with fins
3. Do the same for quad cut-out with fins

Unfortunately it won't fit the LCI because the bumper profile is different. I'm going to start work on an LCI version though as soon as these 4 are complete. If you're patient enough, watch this space

I would think it would look better if the trim line came down more abruptly from top to bottom shortly after the exhaust cutout instead of wrapping around the corner of the bumper - same on other side obviously

IMO it should look as much like an actual insert in an MTech bumper as possible.

And yes, some detail in the middle such as fins would break up the big 'washboard' effect...

Great to see progress

In that case when I'm there on Friday I'll see how it looks and take some photos as it is wrapping around the bumper. Then have them cut it in a more aggressive profile wrapping closer to the exhaust opening. Will take pics of both and submit here for a vote.

I'd like to release something that people want, so I'll leave it up to you guys to decide on the final design.

As for the fins, I'm going to make both options available as there has been pretty much an equal interest in both.

Unfortuantely for the LCI one it will take a bit of time. Hopefully not 6 months, but I can't promise anything at the moment. Keep tracking this one though to see the final design - the LCI design should be quite similar, so it'll give you an idea of how it'll look.

Thanks for the interest though!

I'm interested in pre-lci single exhaust when you are ready to sell. Please pm me when it's possible to buy.

Will save me from having to buy m-tech.

IRQ5- I like that you are following the line of the bumper. It looks great already. Just waiting for the dual quad non 335
