A CSL bumper cover that’s compatible with a Kevlar bumper would be very appealing. I just wanna remove my bumper cover, install a CSL one and not have to deal with the shocks, carriers, etc. I think most would be thinking the same.

Default Re: CSL OE Bumper Carbon Fiber bits

Iíve been meaning to post on here for awhile now about how happy I am with my purchase of the JCSL race lip for my Vorsteiner bumper. First off, HUGE thanks to Derek! Seriously, from start to finish he has been awesome. Not only for helping to bring more quality products on the market for our platform, but for the outstanding customer service and communication throughout the whole process. He went above and beyond in ensuring that everything went smoothly and I was totally satisfied with my product. Him and JC, good people without a doubt.

The lip itself arrived earlier than expected which was a plusÖ and this thing was well packaged! Never received an item so well protected before. As for the quality, this is definitely top notch stuff. JC really did and amazing job with the lip. The 1x1 weave looks beautiful, great polish on the resin, and fitment was pretty good from the start as well. As other AW owners know, you canít hide any misaligned body panels, bumpers, gaps, etcÖ It stands out way too much, at least to me. So I tried trimming the lip a little bit via sanding to get it to fit a bit tighter to the bumper.

Having said that, keep a couple things in mind. One: This lip was being mounted on a BNIB Vorsteiner V2 CSL front bumper that has never been installed or painted, so the bumper itself could have some manufacturing discrepancies. Two and most important: The lip itself was never actually secured to the bumper. No drilling, no clamping, no tape, absolutely nothing. Any of these things would have given the lip a much tighter fit to the bumper. This was just me, probably being a bit anal trying to achieve near perfect fitment from a simple mock up. Partly because I wasnít sure at the time whether I wanted to keep my VCSL bumper or sell it lol. Anyway, needless to say, fitments pretty damn good.

During that time, Derek and I were also in constant contact about me tackling this along with JCís recommendations on how to go about it. Again, great service here from both these guys. They really wanted to make sure I was 100% satisfied with my lip, and I couldnít be happier. To anyone considering the lip, splitters/flippers, diffuser, whateverÖ from Derek/JC, you wonít be disappointed.

The bumper and lip are currently stored away, but I did manage to snap some quick pictures when I first received the lip. Remember, the lip is mocked up and not secured to the bumper. Definitely a thing of beauty, enjoy the eye candyÖ

Ya, he doesn't have the CF roof on the radar. Many quality options out there like Paulo said.

He would need a set to mold off, to ensure it's perfect.

Oh for the CSL bumper. Any chance he'll make it compatible with the Kevlar bumper support?
Please post pics when all done.

They want to stick with Kevlar to save themselves $. You need to swap a lot of stuff to run csl bumper with built in carrier.

He started taking apart the OE CSL bumper.
As for Kevlar vs Aluminum carrier, he wants to make it for each option.
Hoping nogoodname will help him out, as he is local to JC and that helps immensely.

Thanks so much! Can't wait to see it installed on your car....and if you ever sell the bumper, I'm sure a bunch of the members would fight in the octagon for it.

Can you guys who have installed the diffuser give any insight to help our fellow member:

Any tips for getting the last two end clips in? WD-40?







Jc mentioned “Need to pull up and push in place
Is not so easy but it’s normal
On his picture he is under the lip ”

Any insight is greatly appreciated, as I have yet to get my hands on one.

Default Re: CSL OE Bumper Carbon Fiber bits

Itís not the clip thatís the issue, he needs to get that lip over the ledge on the bumperbefore the clip can go in. Itís tight, but it will go. The best way I can think to help that may make sense is to start with the diffuser higher and push down and into the groove instead of straight in.
Sorry, itís hard to describe, but it will go together; Iíve taken 2 diffusers off and on many times over to test fit them; that tight fit is nice when it clips in.
