Overall, I'm satisfied by but not by the quality. This second aftermarket part, after Vorsteiner, has left me very jaded about aftermarket parts. In the future, I plan on sticking to OEM.

I gotta say, from here, it looks great.

I have their front lip and rear diffuser. The fitment is 100% and I am a stickler for fitment. They truly are quality pieces, some of the best I've seen.

Had an Arkym Diffuser, and it fit fine, got lots of compliments on it. More recently, there have been really bad reviews on getting the parts, fitment irregularities, etc. (check vendor reviews, plenty feedback there). For diffuser and lip, it seems MODE CARBON is the new top brand in town, the GTS lip is particularly popular.
