Since they are a new company Iíve been very patiently waiting for them to address their fitment issues. Hopefully their products can match the amount of hype they generate.

Perhaps you can show some pictures of how well you have the top lined up as Iím sure they will ask for this anyways....
I don't want to say that that is what Antony did with me, but to me it did seem like that was what he was inferring. He ignored the part where I talked about these being advertised as "fitting perfectly" and "to the millimeter"

Already have one or two others with Streamline orders on the way that are going to let me know how theirs fit.

Will upload further pics tomorrow morning

It's sad because it seems like Streamline has the best intentions, but are hamstrung by over stretching themselves and the demand, that this market still has, is overwhelming them (him?). A slower, steadier start would return sweeter fruit for them.

I have only heard good things but never seen great results, now I potentially have my own first-hand account of that.

I mean having the trunk painted for 50 bucks was a red flag from the get go but that should have been expected. Most competent body shops charge at least 250-500 for a trunk respray.

As far as fitment is concerned, very sad to see this. However this is the exact reason I went with a used trunk. That way I could make sure it fit at least decently well before I purchased it.

You went the logical route lol. Since there was so much hype around the company and these were advertised as fitting as well as OE, I figured I'd save a few hundred on something that supposedly fit just as well

Yikes, looks like I'm holding off on a CSL trunk for a while then. I was initially going to go with SGT but heard of fitment issues and then thought about going with Streamline. Streamline does look like a great company but maybe they're biting off more than they can chew? Hopefully, this gets resolved.

I believe the good Dr of all group buys can still get great pricing on OE CSL lids

I would just go OE, as delvin said, I'm sure you can still get some sort of discount on the real thing

They released too many products too quickly

Especially when other CF companies already do these pieces 110% quality you better come out with something at least on par.

I don't see this ending well on the forum, a downfall like other vendors have seen.

Agreed, especially when selling to people who can be incredibly picky about how parts look and fit on their cars and can quickly spread info to the rest of forum members
