In search of the best carbon fiber side skirts :)

Hey guys,

I just ordered my bodykit from Vorsteiner - GTS5 front bumper with CF chin, CF bootlid trunk and CF GTSV rear diffuser. Now i'm looking for the best possible carbon fiber side skirts extensions for the kit. I don't want the side skirts to hang lower than my front bumper so do any of you guys have a pic of vorsteiner front with carbon sides? I've been searching no luck.

I'm looking at mode carbon, exotics tuning or forcewerks. I hear and read so much good reviews on mode carbon and it seem to flow nicer on the car based on the pics?

Hope you can help me with pics. Thanks!

Keith

I went with Mode Carbon. I was in your same situation. Fitment & quality is top notch. Check out the fitment on the 1st pic (close up)

Hey Keith, I also have the Vorsteiner GTS5 front bumper ... In my opinion, the Gintani CF side skirts are the best looking, here's my car for your reference :

Platte Forme AG doesn't even make side skirts... They just sell side skirts made by another company.

Why not promote the company actually producing the product???

Not knocking the DOWNFORCE USA skirts though... I have 'em myself.

Isn't that true for 99% of vendors. How many companies are making carbon parts in house??? Mode Carbon? Challenge?

Platte Forme AG and Downforce USA have a close relationship so they are almost one-in-the-same in my view (I am local and have seen them interact). Also, if I were to drop Downforce's name, the next question would be "where do I buy them" so I was just trying to avoid that and send the OP right to the source, not slight Downforce out of credit for their product.
