    I got the same response from them...

    Here is the part they made in the past and if I'm honest, $1,200 for this part seems high to me and I would imagine the new piece being made will be more expensive. I personally wouldn't drop $2k on this mod.

    I ended up doing a vinyl wrap to get the carbon fiber look. I did a matte vinyl to match the rest of my car. I think it looks pretty good... and for like $40, well worth it.

    Ya I've seen this done and while it gives somewhat of the look, it's not for me personally. I want the actual piece like the gen2.

    Justnee,

    The part is actually quite a bit different in that it is a scoop that comes out from the car, not an inlet...

    Justneel, no offense but CF tape is just that. You have a stunning car already. Anyone into cars will know it’s just tape. You don’t need to fake it. You drive the real deal. Envy of many. I’d pass on the fake CF thing.

    I'm interested for sure. As long as the price isn't ridiculous
