A carbon fiber day is a good day

New OEM Front Replacement Lip from Mode Carbon just arrived.

I'm going to take a crack at installing it as soon as the weather clears up (which actually might happen soon, surprisingly).

Quality is excellent. The product was packaged very, very meticulously.

I would like to thank Nicholas from Mode Carbon for all of his help. Mode Carbon is extremely professional and easy to do business with. The front lip is just the beginning. Thanks again, Nick!

A few quick pics:





The piece replaces the gloss black lip/splitter that comes as standard:



Mode Carbon makes a lot of great carbon fiber bits for the E9X M3 platform as well.

That's going to look awesome! Please post pics when it's on. I hope they start putting out products for the Macan Turbo.

Thanks man!

I think so too. I'm going to try to get it installed here soon rather than later.

And yeah that would be great if they did. One thing I can say about Mode Carbon is that everyone I have dealt with there has shown integrity.

I don't think there will be much of a cosmetic difference unless you stand within a few feet since the OEM lip is already black. You should definitely get a black or CF splitters.

True but part of my logic in getting that particular style of lip (a direct replacement for the OEM lip/splitter) was wanting to retain the OEM look as much as possible.

I also plan on getting the Mode Carbon carbon fiber rear diffuser and side vents (at least). Thus, when everything is finished, everything will match.
