Ericsson bumper splitters

I'm seriously considering this bumper but that fact that the splitters are not CF is an issue for me since I really like that look. What are my options here to achieve the same look? is there a CF film that I can put on top?

just painted it to match your car. i think it would look good. the alternative is to paint it jet black. it would look just as stunning as cf

Ericsson makes just splitters? That may be the solution. Do you have a link of pics?

I'm sure he's talking about the entire Ericsson front bumper. The non carbon fiber one is all black, obviously, so when you paint the bumper and leave the "splitters" unpainted, it'll still be black. I've been thinking about the same thing, but there's no way in hell I would or could spend that much money for the carbon fiber front bumper.

I have looked into this as well. From the explanation I got, both the FRP and the CF front bumper are one piece. Ericsson will not make an FRP piece with CF front "fins". Its either or. I tried. BELIEVE ME, I tried to get them too but to no avail. I think they know how many more people would buy the FRP if it had that option. Now I dont have figures of how many pieces of the CF they have sold but I sincerely doubt its a large amount for the simple fact that it is $$$$ and with the FRP option, most would opt for that. I know thats why I did. Ordered both the front and rear trunk in FRP. JMO

Can't wait to see what it looks like on your car. How long is the wait once you place the order?

I agree with the rest of you. I would jump on this bumper if you had the option of getting FRP with the CF splitters.

Ericsson really fucked everyone over by not offering fiberglass bumpers with carbon splitters. they want you to spend the extra money for the full CF bumper which is a complete rip off IMO.
