to wait a while lol.
Glad you're liking the looks. The cool thing about the LCI bumper is that it has a perfect recess for something like this. It will take a bit of a while, but I will definitely get onto the LCI bumper too...

Quick question:

Do you plan to do the Non-335 LCI before or after you do the 335 pre-LCI

Not 100% sure actually. I think I will probably do non-335 lci first. Depends on which bumpers I can get hold of and demand really...

But non-335 lci is probably the most likely

Nice work.

A simpler option for the e90 lci would be nice too, similar to say the Hamman quad diffuser. Has a little vent and it just wraps around the tips and the bottom of the bumper, clean and simple.

So... I visited the moulder this morning and we're nearly done. He's working on making sure that the fins are all identical and straight etc. and soon as he's done with that the modified parts will go back into the mould making process to produce a final moulds to work from.

All should be done on the first 3 moulds by next week Friday and we should be ready to manufacture. These will be

1. The original part - basic clip-over piece with no fins, and only one opening
2. Basic clip-over piece with no fins and two openings
3. The clip-over piece with fins and one opening.

Then work starts on the clip-over with fins and 2 openings. That piece should follow relatively quickly because once the single opening piece is done with fins, we will cast the fins from there and transfer to a part with 2 openings and no fins to create the hybrid, and then create a mould from there.

Will give you guys an update next Friday. Again, I apologise for the wait... But hopefully it'll be worth it. If all goes to plan, all four designs will be available within the next month or two.

Unfortunately not the one you're looking for... I have 4 of the single opening, no fins one that was fitted to the car pictured a page or 2 back. The one with the sides which a lot of people wanted changed.

I'm busy working on changing the shape of the mould for the sides so that they are more straight up - rather than slanted in. This should follow the lines of the bumper better. As well as the single side opening with fins and the dual opening with fins. The single side opening with fins mould should be done by the end of the week, and then the dual side opening with fins mould will take about another 2 weeks to a month or so after that.

Hi

There is no thread open as yet. Soon as I have stock I will open one. Just checking - these parts will only fit the e90 - and you have an e92?...

Either way - will definitely post here when the thread is open.

As a general update to everyone. The final part with fins and changed side profiles is being moulded as we speak after the modifications we spoke of based on the fact that you guys didn't quite like the side profiles.

I've made it more straight (closer to the m-tech profile) so that it will match the lines of the car. Soon as the part is ready (within a week or so) I'll post some pics and then if all goes well I should be in a position to start supplying by mid November. Hold thumbs for me!
