ok thanks guys

the images you see are the prototype , but I think final version will be 99% same .

regarding toolkit ...not sure yet and will get back to you on it .

We are using a new and genuine oem factory CSL lid as the mold , so fitment will be near as damn it .

remember tho ' whatever any manufacturer tells you , you will never get 100% as good a fit as oem BMW , they hold the master tools and molds after all ...but we can get to 97% I reckon ....just being straight about the facts as usual

thanks all

Well when you get the first one on in 3 weeks, We will see how fitment is. Not trying to sound like an Arse but everyone says that firment is great for aftermarket but everyone knows on this board that that is not the case after you see pics all the time. I understand that it will not be 100% OEM, but the closer to that 100% the better.

also we got some brand new M3 sized Genuine AC Schnitzer type two racing 3 piece wheels , still boxed but in 17 INCH ...... so better handling ok !! ..I know you cruisers all need wheels as big as my house , but surely one of you out there wants a set of wheels that look good AND give better handling

will fit E36 M3 , all other e36 and most e46 non M3 cars .

Uk retail is 2650 , or about $4940 usdollars .....come on gimme offers

UK CUSTOMERS offers over 1750 please , USA offers over $3400 + shipping ( usa customers not liable to our sales tax so you get better deal at least compared to UK )

come on you know it makes sense .......

If its autoclave and the prototype fit, there will not be any fitment issues short of human errors during production... Unlike wet layup where every finished piece will fit differently, autoclave is the best sh*t out there

You can paint over the CF. Weight reduction is what you will get from the CSL bootlid.
