Thank you again Epoustouflant for putting this together and the excellent management of the group buy.


Super clean Space Fox, are you running spacers on your car? I feel better about the lip now that a couple of members say fitment is 9/10. THAT... I can deal with. Are you guys removing the bumpers for install?
Considering your level of attention to detail, I would.

I still think I don't have 9/10 fitment but I also expect no gaps for that rating. I do think is at least a 7/10 maybe an 8/10. Maybe I grade hard, but that is passable. In comparison ,I would give them cheap replicas below 6/10 based on what I've seen.

I'm knocking of points for the gaps however minor. I do believe if it was abs plastic, this wouldn't be an issue and be a 10/10.

Thank you! Yes on rear spacers - 10mm. No on front. I had 12s (MS) on the front but couldn't shake the 80mph vibrations. I'll likely buy a set of Future Classics and give it one more shot.
derbo is right there are still gaps so maybe my 9/10 was generous but them being in a location that I will never see makes it very livable for me.
Yes on removing the front bumper. I did it myself but could have used an extra set of hands to line everything up before drilling the holes - the bumper flexes a lot. So if you've got a buddy around grab him.

I used clamps to hold down the outer bolts first. It does help to have a table with a cloth or something to hang the bumper at a better level.

Hey guys,

The 4th batch is in production and Markus will start taking payments. To facilitate the GB coordination, I have created a Google Form to eliminate back and forth in private messages.


Please fill it out here.

Anyone in future batches can fill this out anytime as well. I also clarified with Markus that CFK brackets are an optional 50 euros. It'll be available and is on the order form now.

Current conversion rates from xe.com shows $481USD right now. Use one of your international credit cards with Paypal and avoid the conversion fee too.

PayPal's conversions rates are always a bit inflated to their benefit. Mine just cost 509

I didn't use Paypal's conversion rate and just paid the 414 Euros directly with my CC.
