It's just the basic fiberglass layer right now which is why it looks thin, should be like this in thickness once it is finished.





The designer actually had it even more sticking out at like 2.5" but then he was told that no way people would buy that with lowered cars and its so it got toned down to 1.25"

But they still asked for criticism so I made a thread asking if people had any and posted here as well.

No official price yet since they haven't finished making it but it will be less than the 1M front lip. These are 100% made in Long Beach and are actually clear coated so it will last 5-7 years instead of most other CF that is gel coated and will yellow / turn dull after 1-3years. Highest quality CF I have seen and I have tons of CF on my car from iCarbon and etcc. They are coming out with a ton of stuff though, not just the lip.

what sits inside those side vents on the side of your front bumper? oil cooler and intercooler?

maybe the lips should have like "ramps" guiding the air into those specific areas?

lol a lip won't last someone that long...so the CF yellowing shouldn't be an issue

Maybe for the IC, but won't work with the OC. It'll either be too low and hit the ground, or not clear the rims. the OC is hard to get too

i highly doubt, just brake ducts... unless there is some type of hole that passes through and guides air right onto the brakes from there that i didn't see.

generally side positions are reserved for a stock intercooler and/or a small oil cooler.

it looks like companies like Berk use the oil cooler on the driver's side bumper duct and the intercooler sits on the other side.

Burger seems to utilize a front mount intercooler vs and side mount and the burger oil cooler sits just above the burger IC.
