I think Ericsson Prices are outrageous, and I would much rather get some Vorsteiner pieces (much better bang for buck value).

And the only thing I really like is the CF interior, other than that it's not even that appealing...

Cheers,

CSL

It's more like apples and oranges.
You can't really compare wet CF(or Vacuum-infused CF) vs pre-preg dry cf products.

Maybe both products have similar "Carbon Fiber" appearance, but one is for just the looks, one is for pure weight saving with super precision quaility.

The pre-preg dry CF is what all F-1, Aerospace, other high-end manufacturer uses to produce to meet its strength and weight requirements.

The tooling fee to use Auto-Clave(Pressurized/high temp Clave) is extremely expensive and the facility is very rare to find.

It's just pointless to compare wet CF products(or Vacuum-infused CF) to pre-preg dry CF.

Let us know if you have any questions about more info on the products.

Please check your facts. Vorsteiner carbon fiber components are made of Dry Vacuum Formed Carbon Fiber. They are also 100% made in the US.

We find that it is better to sell your product based on it's own merits.... Especially when we don't have the facts about competing products... and if a customer posts his opinion, well... that's his opinion.

Best of luck with the sales! I've heard that the Ericsson stuff is top quality!

Hello JL

We were not addressing Vorsteiner directly, just majority of the carbon products produced.

Since whole “Dry/Wet CF” is very misleading, I just wanted to let customer knows about the differences between Pre-Preg CF vs other CF products.

Not many customers are aware of cause of the price difference between CF parts, and we just want to let customer know what they are paying for.

We also own our own vacuum infused CF factory for our own GTM products, so we were NOT talking down anything about vacuum infused CF products.

I also think Vorsteiner products are very excellent in quality and pricing.

Obviously, this is not for everybody and we do not expect to sell them in high quantity either.

It is for the one who apprecaites its quailty and R&D time spent on their aftermarket parts.

Our M3 had sticker price of $71k, and have you had a chance to look at high-end aftermarket parts for other $70k+ cars?

Do the FRP parts like the front bumper and rear valence come with CF inserts?
