You're right - it will be. Unfortunately for those who want the dual opening, I have to do the single side opening first. But I'm going to try make them in seriously quick succession as the change is miniscule to make the item into a dual opening item. So if anything I wouldn't expect much more than a month or two after the single side is done, the dual side should be done too...

Will keep you guys updated. Visiting the moulders again on Wednesday regarding the m-tech / m-sport version, but will get an update on this one too...

please dont make it look like the ACS add on rear lip with fins

fins sticking out of the bumper is rice imo

fins only look good if the diffuser is inside the bumper and fins line up with bumper line which in this case is not going to work, unless the fins are <half an inch

I dont know if you keep getting confused on which is first... You would tell me everytime I ask if it was dual quads first and you said yes because I was the one requesting this diffuser to be made in the first place. I would really like to run a diffuser as soon as possible. So please do the dual quads first. When its done I have money to pay right away and will get installed right away with pictures to post. I already have my tips i just need the diffuser to finish it.

I think there is higher demand for the single side exhaust, followed by the 335 dual exhaust. From a business perspective it would be smarter to meet the higher demand first.

I'm going to see the guy on Monday to chat about this work. Let me see what I can organise. Most of the moulding is going to be the same, so perhaps it'll only take a week or so longer to get the non-335 quad setup going.

Let me see what I can organise. Either way I'll defiinitely switch the order around so that we go non-335 dual, non-335 quad, 335 dual, 335 quad instead...
Klove, I posted this before. The order will still be as above. I have to take the casting from the stock bumper first and develop a mould from that casting. Once that's done we can modify the mould to include the same cut-out on the other side.

Really sorry man, but I have to do the single opening first. Either way, like I say, I'm going to be pushing to have them ready within a month or two of each other.

I'm going to do something unique. I know some people think that fins look rice, but I like them and so do a good few people here... So it's going to have fins. They won't be garish in any way though and if my design comes out the way I want it to, you might like it - the fins will be small-ish and won't come out past the "lip" that's going to be created around the diffuser and the exhaust cut-outs...

I know that , so hold thumbs that I can get a view of the design soon!

Just a quick update. Spoke to the moulders today. They have a few other things that they're finishing off and should have a preliminary part to show me by the 15th June.

Bummed I have to wait so long! But either way, it's coming!
