The 2 side by side are not really even close. We have seen detailed pics of the production GTS lip off of a car from about last month ( 7-8 mos after ours was developed from scratch ) Ours has more in common to the GT4 lip than the GTS at this point. We for sure were inspired by early images of the GTS and openly say that. We just didnt like their design much in certain areas. All of our parts are made from scratch. We actually document and photograph the process every time too showing all steps from an idea on paper to the model in foam or fiberlgass etc.

Either way, our part was actually in production before either one of the BMW made parts or in anyones hands

I like it but from a practical point I can see it damaged within few weeks. It sticks out too much for regular everyday driving.

who ever drives around with this lip wont be able to go anywhere with the car. it'll scrap every time you go into a gas station or parking lot.

i would buy it and hang it on my wall as a 4k art piece.

I really like the lip, but it does stick out way too much for daily use.

I hope that someone from Taiwan was not directed to me
