poor ACS quality

Does it bother anyone else that the edges of the front add-on spoiler does not match flush with the rest of the stock bumber (look at the wheel well). With ACS's prices and rep, you'd think they could do a better job, no?

When you do a "REPLY", there should be a button ("Browse") right above the Submit/Preview Reply buttons.

Good... glad to see you found the button! Again, you're welcome :tongue:

Ahh... so you mean the width of the kit adds a couple millimeters to the lower part of the wheel well? I'll have to check it out next time I see an AC-Schnitzered 3er...

it's not flush with the rest of the bumper in the wheel well as I stated before. For ACS $$$, it should be flush.

I hear you... but you do understand that you are adding a few millimeters of poly-urethane to that part of the wheel well. This is part of how the kit joins to the car. It can't be all that visible either, being that it's probably < 1/8" thick...

The only way for it no to do that would be for it to not join to the car there, which may make it not hold to the bumper as well.

I recently test fit my add-on and just having it hooked on in the wheel well made it tight enough so that I could've driven it on the highway, etc...

I'll check it out once mine is painted and I'm installing it.


Do you understand what I'm saying about that's how it attaches to the bumper and that you're adding material there so of course it's going to stick out a bit there?

Would you say it's about 1/8" thick?
