Installed some BMW CF

I had ordered a 3F CF lip, but the wait got too long so I canceled and got these BMW zcp package CF splitters. The finish is perfect. Seriously, notably superior to my vorsteiner CF diffuser. No blemishes whatsoever.

I had to drill one extra hole on each side, the other matched up perfect with a stock bolt. They stick out about 1 1/4 inch further than without, but still less than the center of the stock bumper. The don't hang down any further than stock. I'm sure I'll scrape them up, though ... seeing as I found scrapes in the same area of the stock bumper when installing them. It's more subtle than a full lip, but at least I'll bust them up less.

Found them discounted at Turner Motorsport for about $650, heard Tischer has them, too. You'll see them on blue on the site:

Yeah, that 3F is bad, but the bastards aren't putting it out. I also would've beat it up pretty good whereas these don't protrude further out than the center stock area does. I still may consider getting it if I find it in stock. I'm not ordering anything anymore unless it's in stock or I know for a fact the company has a history of delivering.

It's actually Jerez. Goes to show you how Jerez can look black depending on the lighting conditions. The extra pics I'll put up will be bright daytime and you'll see more blue to the Jerez. I'll put those up later today.

The quality of these things are awesome aren't they? It really puts the aftermarket companies to shame with there fiberglass pieces that are just covered in CF, especially when you compare the fact that these actually fit perfect unlike any aftermarket piece.

BTW - looks great on black. I'm still deciding if I'm going to paint mine white or not. From most angles the CF looks good, but from straight on from a distance it kinda blends into the lower air ducts and looks a bit odd.

I need to paint my bumper soon cause some jackass backed their Tahoe into it this weekend while trying to parallel park and cracked the paint. Not really noticeable unless you look close, but still sucks and needs to get fixed. Might be a good time to paint the splitters as well. Need someone to do a PS of them all white so I can see how it would look
