Arrow my new m3 carbon fiber side skirts lip

Hi, I just got the 1st set of this side skirt lip installed on my m3, and I love it.
a friend of mine made it for the e60 m5 and I ask him to make it also for the my e92 m3 and e93.
Ive been looking for something like this for long time, all I have seen in the pass are the lips that just lay right under the side skirt and it doesn't look right. There are always some space, and it feel like it will come off any mint.
this one is build with a wall that comes up about 2cm of the side skirts and it feels and looks like its made by bmw itself LOL. its just so sick. I hope you guys like it, its made here in good old USA. thank you dinmann

Thanks Francis for posting up the pictures!

I've personally seen these in person and I have nothing but positive things to say about the fitment and build quality.

Make sure to contact me directly for pricing and availability

Stay tuned for the group buy special pricing as these will sell out fast.

oh boy... that interior... different strokes I suppose. Side skirts are a nice touch though.

Agreed. I love the skirts though.... Looks great!

BTW, the BBS stud kit looks sweet with those LMR's. Nice touch.

I love carbon fiber, but I think it is a bit much, interior wise. With that said, I do like your car. I like the skirt lips though.

thx. no they are all 2x2 is just we did take the pics close up so he can show that the cf is real and there are no problem with the weave. I know it looks a lot because of the big pics. it looks much nice when u see it in person.
people always do the trims in carbon fiber and that's about 8-9 pieces.
I did the inside door handles, the center, trims around the ac/stereo, the trim around the headlights switch and cup holders. then we did the steering wheel. so total of 8. carbon fiber is not for every one, i real didn't like that plastic look that some of our parts have. and also they always get scratch easy. all parts are oem and refinished in CF, so no problem with the fitment at all.
