Awesome! really excited to see the slatted version on my car.


Whoever is doing an install in the near future, a video install would be greatly appreciated.

They are fitted on my M2 and fitment is perfect! Fitting them is not something I want to do every week (the hardest part is releasing the OEM reflectors from inside the rear bumper). But I'm very happy with the result!

Thanks for sharing! It's weird how the details on the covers don't turn up so well in photos, but when you are standing in person at the same distance, you can visually see them...

What if you made an "insert" to replace the reflector. That would make it look like it's a thru hole/actual aero. Does that make sense? So it'd look like a dark cut out in the bumper instead of a honeycomb/slatted look.

That would look so cool!! The honeycomb/slatted ones look great however. Would you consider making something like that?

Thanks!

I will post a close up picture, but washing the car again will probably not happen anytime soon. I'm more into driving then cleaning the car

This has been discussed at the early stage of the development. There are three clips on the back, if I were to make it thru holes, you'll have areas that are open, and areas that are filled (because of the mounting clips). Please check some of the pictures that were posted, you'll see what the mounting points look like.

This design is really well thought through and I see little to zero to improve this.

I don't see the point of trying to keep a car clean all of the time... I also have zero joy in cleaning the car and I don't bother what people think about my dirty cars. Even if my car was a Lambo Huracan LP580-2 I would not clean it more often then my other cars. Driving a dirty car does not mean that you don't love the car....it means that you love driving it more then looking at it

Offcourse I clean my cars once in a while when it gets so dirty, that I can not touch it anymore without getting dirty myself when opening the trunk and doors. And when I do clean it, I will do it myself with the correct products and the correct cleaning procedure (inside and out). My car has Gyeon Mohs + protection coating for the paint on it and a Xpell wrap on the front. So dirt does come off rather fast and does not destroy the paint when it stays on for a longer period of time.

For people outside of US and Canada, they are being shipped directly from Taiwan. I will have all the tracking numbers and will send them out to everyone!
