Front Lip Jerez Black

I have an e92 2008 Jerez Black. It has black rims and Kidney grills. I am looking at a front lip or splitters but not sure of the Carbon Fibre when I have the full black thing happening.

Anyone have pics of Jerez or Jet Black with carbon fibre or any ideas?

Check out my garage and you'll see a few pix of Jerez with CF bits. I think it looks as awesome as a 70s mustache, but I am biased...

Not painted. Revinora has a black edge around the whole spoiler which is nice because it kinda blends it for you.

Don't really know where you heard that nonsense from , but I own a Revinora R-GTS front lip which is made ONLY out of carbon fiber and epoxy resin , and it is made in Los angels CA . As far as for "mode carbon" they ship parts over from china (like a lot of the retail vendors) which has only a cosmetic layer of carbon fiber , and the rest is plain old fiberglass , made with polyester resin (surfboard resin). I have had first experience with both parts and manufacture . As I will say and many other happy customers on the boards will say is Revinora and other NON-CHINA MADE BRANDS are quality made and worth the wait and money

Not sure about mode carbon's quality as I have never seen the product first hand. Adding to the Revinora comment, you can tell its 100% carbon fiber and was hand made. There were delays in the process but the owner was up front and kept an open line of communication. I got the feeling the parts are made to order more or less vs. a mass production type of item. Hard to explain but you could almost smell it coming out of the box? Like they had just finished it, wrapped it up and shipped it to you. When you first place it to the bumper it doesn't look like its going to fit properly. Once you start applying screws in the right spot the piece flexes right in place.

Wrong. A friend of mine told me that his revinora lip was bad quality that's why I'm saying this. He ended up selling his lip before he even installed it. Mode Carbon makes real carbon fiber pieces you are very misinformed.

At Mode Carbon, our manufacturing process takes full advantage of a dry-layup vacuum infusion process. This allows for less resin to be used in between the carbon fibers, creating a dramatic weight advantage.

The vacuum infusion technology of our process also ensures a perfectly even distribution of the resin. The result is a pin-straight weave pattern, which generates a more consistent level of structural integrity to maximize the overall rigidity of our carbon fiber products.

100% pure carbon fiber:

All raw materials used in our manufacturing are hand-picked from Germany, France and Japan to ensure that our carbon fiber products exceed even the most strict industry standard of quality.

The carbon fiber is finished with UV protected clear coat to prevent discoloration from sun exposure. The glossy finish not only provides stunning aesthetics, but also serves to maximize the longevity of our products by increasing their durability to the elements.

The result of our commitment to quality is high-grade carbon fiber that reduces weight, increases performance and improves aerodynamics. Whether your car is for the street or dedicated to track use, Mode Carbon products offer an ample blend of quality, refinement and style.

I had BOTH lip. The Revinora was flimsy and super thin. The cf was so thin you can see sunlight through the other side. Mode Carbon- strong, regid, HEAVY, and beautiful carbon fiber. I believe there is a mixture of fiberglass and carbon fiber with Mode Carbon. Quality is great.

Thanks David. Our products are all 100% carbon fiber though.

Thought carbon fiber was supposed to be "light"? Lol.... thinking about the mode carbon diffuser.

Revinora lip really looks good, I might consider the FRP version. Problem with CF lips is that once you hit rocks and even scrape a little the clear gloss cracks and it is game over. I actually drive this car a lot and go to the track so delicate CF lips are out.
