Flow Designs New Product Opportunity

Hey guys,

There is a company in Melbourne you may have heard of called Flow designs. They specialize in making sideskirt extensions, lips , diffusers etc out of ' Shelf Polyethylene Composite aero automotive components'. Check them out on Facebook if you want.

I've recommended they develop rear bumper extensions for e46 3 series with m sport rear bumper. Luckily they have responded and are willing to produce the product only if there is enough demand for it. They will need 6+ orders to cover initial production cost. So who here is keen to join the order list?
Currently there is no design for it, but they said they are willing to create any design we want (within reason)

They already have bumper extensions for the Golf (pic below) which they said is what the design may look like, but i have recommended something along the lines of the second picture. A cleaner simple look , which would compliment the side skirt extension they already have for the m sport. We can share pics/ideas to come up with a final design.

So who's in?

(note: The material its made of looks exactly like the first pic, not carbon fiber) Also the product hasn't been made yet, the pictures are just ideas of what it may look like, we settle on a final design)

well, what would you like to see? throw in your ideas on what you would like it to look like. So far the two pictures above, particularly the second one is what i imagine working best for the m sport bumper. Ill try and find other ideas in the meantime, but i think anything to excessive in design will make it look ****, it would have to match the m sport side skirt extension they already have for the m sport package. Which i notice you have installed on your car, looks great
