The underside requires some work given I decided to install the third brake light (not cut out, but impression is there). It'll require some work but it's doable.

For what you pay and expect from a High quality company, you expect the cutout would be done for you huh? One fcuk up, theres going to be gaps all over the place on the 3rd brake light.

And I still think the rear trunk bevel line still looks like crap angling down and not lining up with the upper tail light.

I would have designed the line and made it straight across.

Agreed on the cutout. Aside from this I disagree as the lines you've referenced lines of with that of the quarter panel; of course you're entitled to your opinion.

It ships painted next week - ugh. It'll enhance the rear for sure. I think the front is too low for splitters. Back n my VCSL days my race lip was beat up. Good thing I had spares. I like the ride height more than splitters.

the CSL splitter add-ons dont go below the OEM bumper it just extends the sides out a lil. My car isnt as low as yours but i know what you mean. My RG splitter i had on my E36 would scrap if you didnt take the right angles going over bumps or down drive ways
