its in canada. i have a speical contact for one of the guys that does custom work with carbonfiber and fiber glass kits.

if you look carefully those spliters were made from the original bumper mold using fiberglass, then once its hardened they used fomes(spelling?) to modify the shape of the design you want. after that they will make another fiber glass copy to fit it, once we checked everything over, the final carbon fiber product is then made.

gernally something like this will cost you around $550~$700 USD depending on the design you want. contact me and i will get you a quote. since the shop is in BC canada, i will have to mail it to you.

hmm

i don't think it would work sicne ur in toronto, i live in san diego and to get it to match the mtecknik would require some work. Maybe i'll look into it, if someone down here can do it.

not sure about it...maybe it will look better if it's the full piece, all the way across the bumper...like the ACS one, and if it doesn't stick out as much..just my opinion.

I can give you a hand. I have the M-Technik kit and I know m3kid. Try to contact FTHM in the upcoming weeks since I am leaving my car with him because I'll be away for 2 months starting Friday...

the full lip is doable, but it changes the design completely... people will think its an ACS knockoff....... so.......don't really want to do that.

if you look @ the CSL version, the front is extruded 3" which is the same as this kit....... perhaps people are already familiar with the CSL and this is just something different. ehehhe i dun know....but it does look good in person. we'll see, once the product is finished.

I agree with Hoang, if you go across the entire bumper that could possibly look much better!
