Anyone with JBSpeed CF splitters ?

How about quality ?

How about fitment ?

They are half the price of OEM, but I was wondering if quality is Ok...

Looks like the eBay one's all charge $100 for shipping now.

I'm also wondering if there's a difference between the JBSpeed and E92-Lighting ones??

100% satisfied with mine. Had mine for 3 months without issue. I've posted about them before, but my advise still remains. Take the time to install the second u-clip and screw on the bottom. Also, when installing, add tape to the corner extensions for a completely flush fit. Loose fitting reveals that the splitters are approximately 1/4" short on top of the black duct transition. This gap can be alleviated by pressing the splitters in before adhering the tape.

As a side note, I applied sealant to mine (CG M-Seal) and have had no issues with UV fading.

JB Speed CF Splitters

Mine arrived well packaged and unharmed from the trip through the Post Office. CF finish is really good. Fitment is very good also. M3Carbon's comments are spot on. You will need to 2nd clip and screw the bottom to get the seams aligned, and tape seams and corners of the extensions. I am going to have them integrated into the bumper for a seamless look. Reflectors are going away and those openings contoured as if the reflectors were never there, then full bumper repaint. My body guy says the the splitter fitment will make it a much easier job for him. He does a lot of racing 911s and Ferrari restorations and a lot of, well, lesser cars let's say so has seen his share of world class and lousy aftermarket body treatments.

Personally, I wouldnt mold the splitters to the bumper. The first time you crack/break one, youre gonna have to completely redo the entire front bumper, rather than just the splitter.

I think it's hit and miss with these. I ordered mine in march and they fit very well and am 100% happy with them. I gave praise to them and my buddy ordered a set. His unfortunately did not fit nearly as well as mine.

This is unfortunate. Since they are vacuum formed it is unlikely that a huge dimensional variation would exist. However, it would be worth contacting JBSpeed to inquire.

I have them and they are great. Fitment seems pretty good but the only problem is that you will see the color of the car between the cf splitter and the air intake vent. I had to put black pinstripe to cover it up. I hope it makes sense. If not i can show you a picture of where exactly.

Otherwise i am very very pleased with them and i highly do recommend getting them from JBSPEED.
