would have to agree that vorsteiner is overpriced fibreglass....have a vorsteiner front on e90 m3 & left side where it meets the flat part of the front guard is about 3mm narrower than the body...also the CF splitter is a far from perfect fit...check it out on page 22 of the modified M3 sedan thread...its the orange one...you can just see it in the pics so looks real bad in the flesh...also chips very easily...will not buy again.

I have the front and rear diffuser on mine and they fit great... but looking at the OP's photos and the money he paid I would be cracking skulls for a refund or a better replacement.

My trunk from Vorsteiner fitted perfect. Best quality I've found for aftermarket. There's minor dremeling needed but not as much as replica's that I've installed.

I have their trunk as well. Fitment isn't perfect, but aftermarket parts rarely are.

I was impressed with the quality of their rear diffuser. It was a well made piece that fit very well. It didn't fit like an OEM part but I've never seen an aftermarket part that did.

Just picked up a double sided e92 trunk lid today. 10 times better than the other vendor I originally purchased. Much more workable. The fit is probably 8/10 but at least the trunk closes....

We also found out their hood is not 100% carbon fiber, which they had claimed it's a full dry carbon fiber; the truth is NOT real CF. They thought no one will knew the hood about this, but too bad we did we found. My friend M3 have the Activewerk supercharger with a large manifold. Their hood cannot closed with the AA manifold installed, so he had to cut out the middle section on the hood. Guess what we saw?


My question is, does this really worth buying their products? and false advertising?

Images worth a thousand words. Let me hear yours thought.


Wow, for that price that is unbelievable. Any vendor that doesnt do what it takes to create a happy customer is not worthy!

Vorsteiner has been around for a while in the BMW community, they should know whats up by now with their manufacturing processes. Send the parts back and at least make them fix what can be fixed!

I dont own any vorsteiner parts.

pin holes are common for dry carbon parts.
