Exclamation Looking for truly proper replica CF splitters?

Well here you go:

These are by far the best reps I have seen. They're *FULL CF, no fiberglass + CF resin*. They weigh next to nothing which only adds to the fact they're made of 100% CF. You could even see the CF weave even on the backside, just not clear coated obviously. The seller claims to have the same OE mould, and I'm inclined to agree. The holes line up perfectly as well. They fit like a glove.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/262183801764







Look how thin they are. Just like OEM. The shitty fibreglass reps are much more chunky:




You're welcome

How's the fitment? Also did you drill an extra hole, or just use 3M and the provided hole? Any hardware included?

Thanks

These were $85 less expensive last week. I guess the sudden increase in sales prompted the seller to raise the price.

Fitment is awesome:


I thought about drilling the extra hole but with how ridiculously light these are, the 3M double sided tape on both upper and lower edges and single screw was plenty to hold it down. Trust me, they're not coming off without taking the bumper with it lol.

Holy shit, you're right. I bought them for $160 a month ago...

Yup. These are proper replicas in the very literal sense of the word. Full CF construction!

These are coming from Ukraine. What sort of customs/import duties did you have to pay?

The same as ordering anything from outside of the US/Canada.

I didn't have to pay any in my case. Seller didn't put a value on the label.

Thanks for the tip on these, just bought the last set. He apparently lowered the price for the last pair so I got them for $157 shipped, nice! The other day they were $260 but today I saw one pair left and the price.

I couldn't hit buy it now fast enough!

edit: looks like he has multiple auctions, so I didn't get the last set. Still a good price.

I bought the previous set at $260! Doh! That's pretty unfair, think I should say something?

I got them, they look great and fit well. Gonna have to make a quick trip to the dealer for some clips and bolts for the install though.

Let me save you some time too: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...litter+install

I am going to send him a message letting him know I was about to purchase them at 169 or whatever they were and then jumped up within a day. I'll see what he says and let you know.

They actually seem like pretty reasonable sellers, they offered me a partial refund, but told me that they are going to hold that price of $250 from here on out.

They were just "delivered" and were completely destroyed by the USPS. Box had a huge gash in it, both splitters are broken/cracked. I'm sending them a message on eBay now to see what they want to do.

They were shipped out of CA interestingly.

They were really easy to deal with. After some eBay questions back and forth and the pictures I provided of the damage, they mailed me a new set and they arrived in perfect condition. I gave them positive feedback on eBay.
