is it fake?

if hamann cf front lip is under 500$, is it a fake/replica?
and... cf rear diffuser cost around 400$. (both brand new).

also... if its made in taiwan, are those cf fake?

thanks.

The only thing I can say is the fiberglass front lip, which needs priming and painting, retails for over $1100.

It's probably either fake or stolen.

It says "Hamann Style" meaning it is replica Hamann parts but should be the same fitment... Just be careful when buying parts like that because they can come defected and then you are out $400-$500.
It is like those replica CSL wheels or replica OE 19"s... same concept...

I think what 3XTR3M3 meant was that if you pay those ridiculous prices for Hamann parts it's a waste of money which I guess an M3 driver should know how to spend smartly

if the lip is 100% CF wrapped it's a replica... Hamann only made the winglets in CF not the entire lip..

lol, nice age comment.

What I meant by that is... The hamann diffuser (non-fake) is priced SO high, that if you are paying that much for a diffuser, you could probably afford a higher end sports car.

Sorry you didnt get that... maybe its your age

HAHA, that's exactly what I thought when you said that. With Hamann's prices, might as well save your money and get a GT RS

ohhh hahaha i didn't mean to offend you by asking your age.
i'm only in early 20's so.... i can't buy all the expensive things. my money is limited, also i don't work. that's why i asked you about your age, thinking that you are saying i'm not buying expensive things when i have m3. ^^

No worries, I am homeless, live in a cardboard box and panhandle to pay for my M3 lease payments. We all do what we have to to drive this car....

fake or stolen. if it's fake you'd be better off. don't want to have to deal with the police. and if you know what you're buying is stolen then shit goes down..
