dissenting opinion here- I had a pair and sold them before install
I wanted to like them but as I held them against my car they looked like a cheap, stick on after thought
possible issue for me might have been that my car is Lava gray and they didn't provide contrast
I think it looks awesome on the GT or if you get proper fit.. I don't believe in 3M taped ones.. saw a dude here with cf canards it looked terrible because the canards didn't seat 100% on the bumper.. there was some space between the carnards and the bumper in some points.. on another hand it hurts to do definitive holes in the oem bumper
I put them on my car and love them. I like the look and they are great for the track. At BIR without them in the rain at 90 MPH I was hydroplaning going into turn two. With them on at the same track in the rain, different event, at 112 MPH going into turn two the car was rock solid.
I purchased OEM CF canards that have the bolts. I had an autobody shop drill holes in the OEM bumper and bolt and use 3M VHB tape to install them. They used a template I received from desperado to install them. Desperado has an R8 GT so I used a template from his car.
I have the 3m double taped ones. Took me a while to get them fitted perfect, but once on, they feel pretty solid to me with very little play. Had the car up at 165 the other night and no movement at all. if you like the look of the GT then I say go for it. If you don't like it, it's a cheap mod, take it off and go about your day.
it's all about the install.. Take your time and move the canard around until the contour of the canard and the bumper match up, tape in place remove tape back and voila no gaps. I can probably take a pic of mines but it looks exactly like what Howie posted.
Im so blessed today, I finally pulled the trigger and purchased a 2015 R8 Competition🙌🙏. Thanks to [email protected] Autobahn Autowekz for installing the Brixton wheels and giving insight about the R8! Now the road trip from Seattle to Atlanta 🙌🙏
So this is my second R8 and its been a while.
I have a 2014 spyder with black optics. I am going to have the wheels / gas gas cap / rear roof buttons powdercoated in the next week.
So stupid questions.
On the spyder how do you pull the gas cap, on my coupe I removed the blade and it was...
