Feeler: M2C front lip spoiler for M2 OG

This is a feeler to see how many people would be interested in an M2C-style front lip spoiler for their M2 OG. As you may know, the M2C lip spoiler doesn't fit the OG, and there are a few places online selling knockoffs but fitment is questionable and a few posts I've read from people who ordered them have said they don't fit well.

I've been speaking to Ryan@IND-Distribution and he said they may be willing to have their RKP division make their own version if we can get at least 25 commitments. Having them made by IND would assure top quality from a trustworthy manufacturer. I should have pricing based on this quantity soon and will update this thread once I get it.

UPDATE 6/11/2019: Spoke to Ryan today and they are not interested in making it because the OG M2 is old now, they already offer plenty of lip spoilers for the OG, and they have too many other projects going on with newer cars. So unless we can find another (reputable) carbon fiber manufacturer who is willing to take this on, the project is dead.

PLEASE ADD A POST BELOW IF YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED.

Below are pics from the questionable version currently sold elsewhere.

I'm in. I've had the Edison GP lip on my wishlist for forever, but it doesn't seems like it matches the M Performance front winglets well enough so I haven't bought it.

That really depends on the cost. Under $1200 and I'm in.

I'm pretty sure Edison and RKP are essentially the same company

100% I've been looking for an M2C front lip for the OG M2 forever now. Everything else on the market is way too aggressive and gaudy IMO, the M2C lip is subtle and does not have a huge "lip" to it sticking out. If you can get something like that for the OG M2 I'm in for sure.

If you offer the same style lip for OG but made to fit for cars that have winglets already, that would be better bonus!

That's not true...

"The Edison Composites brand is a very young label from Bad Neuenahr, which is run by experienced carbon experts who have years of expertise in handling the material. It is a merger of the MAC motors and the carbon fiber specialists of Alpha-N Performance. The core competence of Edison Composites is to bundle the development and production of fiber composite products. From creative product design and creation of CAD data to model and mold making to the manufacture of the component by means of prepreg in the autoclave, Edison offers complete solutions from a single source - Made in Germany!"

Make something like this in one piece, or even just the middle piece, without the winglets and I'm very interested:

the closer it is to the M2C m performance lip the better! EVERY single offering out there right now is way over the top and doesn't follow the lines and design language of the M2. More companies need to understand that less is more.
