I'm curious on fitment too. I just installed their side skirts, and they fit well.

I believe their undertray comes with hardware.

Although the hardware looks a bit different than the varis hardware. I wonder if the forcewerkz hardware pieces together to net the same result.

i think the varis kit is the way to go for a street car but i track a few times a month and also have a steep drive way that im scared i would scrape from time to time so spending 1k VS 2500$ would be alot easier if something were to happen to it...but also the hardware and how its assembled is important...there is a company called AGT that makes the exact same kit for the e46 m3 and it looked perfect so i wonder how this kit looks once on the car...i also like how its avail. in the FRP..

well when i run off the track and get out to inspect my authentic over priced lips and trays that are cracked and messed up make me more then cringe.... on 99% of the parts for our cars i would never touch a rep but for this part as long as it is assembled right i would not have an issue with it..

My forcewerkz side skirts (downforce usa/platte forme ag reps) fit well, so I'm thinking their diffuser may fit well too.

Forgot to add, when I installed my skirts yesterday, my shop had downforce usa skirts there, so I laid them side-by-side, and on top of each other. They're about as good of a rep as one can expect. Almost makes me think someone bought the downforce skirts to use for the mold. One would hope the same for their diffuser. Forcewerkz's killer prices only make it better. Let's just say, for the price of the skirts, my expectations were far exceeded, based on both fitment and CF weave.

thank you for the feedback....the real question is if i brought the downforce skirts and forcewerkz skirts over and didnt tell you the brands could you tell what one was the downforce brand?

yes, the downforce ones are stamped with their logo. While the shapes of the skirts are the same, the weave is slightly different. However, the forcewerkz weave is really nice. Again keep in mind, the force skirts are 1/3 the price of the downforce ones if you buy them through the jonmotoring group buy. $460 right now. downforce ones are $1100 + 75 shipping.

It was for me. My thought was: For that price, it's worth a shot, and if I don't like it, I'll sell it.

I picked up a used varis undertray for a really good price. If I had not, I'd definitely give the forcewerkz one a try.
