Mode Carbon taking forever

Has anyone else experienced such slow turnaround time with mode carbon.

I ordered side skirts for my e92 m3 and it has been over 1 month.

no, mode carbon has been super responsive. they had mine painted and shipped in less than a week. it can also be the delay in shipments pushing everything back.

I know for a fact that customs have been strict in cali, my trunk got pushed back week after week from ECS, but it finally got here after a month.

You want a quality part right? You have to wait for it or you can buy from them other bs companies get it quick and it doesnt fit...7 weeks isnt bad at all try ordering from Amuse and Varis and waiting 7 months. Not a fan boy but Mode Carbon is worth the wait. Good luck.

I was told 4 weeks upfront when I ordered. I was OK with that at the time. I have followed up and been told it will ship next week. We are now at almost 7 weeks. I don't mind paying for quality parts but I do expect better communication. Although very responsive when I reached out, I guess my expectation is that the customer isn't following up to ensure my order is on time. I understand things happen but my desire is for a company to be more forth coming about delays. I was offered another product in place of mine that was in stock, however I didn't want my front lip to be the only 2x2 weave piece on the car. I am certain the fitment will be spot on.

Nice. I got shipment details today. 7 weeks from order. It will probably be here in another week for a grand total of 8 weeks.

This lip better give me a hard on!

I recommend Downforce USA, they have better fitment & quality parts than Mode Carbon plus they made my side skirts and shipped out in a month.

http://www.downforceusa.com/bmw-e9x

Side skirts are also known as Platte Forme A.G. which they collaborated with Downforce USA to produce for them.

Finally got mine last week. They were super apologetic and Nick called me at night to discuss. I appreciate his effort and they even went so far as to give me a further discount. As far as the product goes, I can't say enough about the fitment. It is spot on. I went so far as to have my pieces covered in Xpel to further protect them. Overall an extremely well made product.

How did you install it? With beta link or 3m? Anymore pics?

No beta link. Just 3m and the existing hardware.
