Yeah but I agree it would be cool to have a different option on the market. Not sure how hard it is to develop though. I知 sure people would just be happy with a properly fitting OE CSL rep period.

Theoretically a full carbon bumper that uses the kevlar carrier has the potential to be the lightest possible setup. I'm not super focused on my car's weight like a lot of others, but I think it'd still be a good option if it's feasible

i agree. that's why vorsteiner's V1 csl bumper had no internal carrier. it gave you the option to 1) glue in your foam support and use kevlar or 2) glue in your aluminum carrier.

Awesome, anxiously awaiting to see pics of fitment of the diffuser!

Yes, I got the diffuser(2 actually) at the end of the day. I知 hoping to try them out in the morning.
My first impression is that it looks amazing. If it fits as good as it looks, I知 sold. Supposedly these ones are just for testing. He said he didn稚 spend much time finishing, and to not get too excited, but
These look pretty dialed to me.

Yes, I would like to thank ChipperM3 for taking time out of his busy schedule, helping out with this project and test fitting/taking pics (before and after work). As well, a thank you to DaytonaViolet for helping out with test fitting the flippers and taking pics

Below are the pics that ChipperM3 took with the prototype diffuser, and hopefully he chimes further in with his experience with them. What he did notice in each corner there was a slight gap, which was at first concerning to ChipperM3/JC and I. However the same gap exists with the original diffuser, as ChipperM3 took pic of that as well.
I will try to test fit my OE CSL diffuser (not the same one the mold was made from) and post up pics if this same gap is also there. Maybe others have pics they can post so the community can also further compare.

Anyways on to the pics
