FAQ

Buyers will have the option of either FRP or Full Carbon fiber (just like the OE CSL bumper. Aside from the no longer manufactured Vorsteiner CSL bumpers, I believe this is the only bumper on the market to offer full-CF.

Will these bumpers allow the use of other manufacturer's CF front splitters, in the event that I ever need to replace them?
YES. Any other OEM replica splitter will fit 100%. You can even buy an OE Splitter and it will fit, so no worries about that! This bumper was designed like this on purpose. If you ever need to replace a splitter, your hands are not tied solely to this manufacturer. They do offer replacement CF splitters though for $246 to $272 depending on fiber design chosen.

Will there be an option for a 1-piece lip instead of the splitters?
At this time, the company does not have anything in the works regarding the production of a 1-piece splitter. If enough demand is there, I am sure they would consider pursuing it. They are really good about listening to what the community demands. This bumper DOES include the CF splitters for both the FRP and Full CF bumpers, however. While I cannot confirm 100%, if a third-party 1-piece front lip attaches like the OE splitters and fits an OE CSL front bumper, than it (should) fit this bumper as well. Emphasis on "should" as I have not confirmed this, but this bumper was made to be a complete "carbon copy" of the OE Bumper.

Will a dual-intake hole bumper be an option?
No, unfortunately not. They are sticking to making only the single-intake hole bumper, just like the OE CSL bumper.

How does it attach to the car?
This bumper does NOT require an aluminum bumper support like other reps. This bumper uses the exact same mounting system that the CSL bumper uses. Namely #9, 10, and 11 from realoem (Right and Left Bumper Shocks, 2x ASA Bolts, and Hex nuts with plate), as the bumper carrier is built in to the bumper itself, like the original. The Bumper Carrier is made from 4 layers (One layer fiberglass, one layer Carbon reinforced Kevlar, followed by another layer of fiberglass and another layer of Carbon reinforced Kevlar) for added strength. This bumper should be considerably lighter for you if your car currently uses the aluminum carrier! Additionally, this bumper is compatible with both the stock windshield wiper fluid holder, and the CSL windshield wiper fluid bottle.

Is this the same bumper that other car part distributors sell? You know the "EuroSpec" bumper? ...and Is this going to have that inflated "chipmunk cheek" look to it?
Nope. Completely different bumper, 100% hand-made in house in Europe. These bumpers have not been released yet. Nothing will leave the manufacturer if the weave, quality, and fitment are not 100%.

This looks really promising, how many are available?
Because this company has a small manufacturing presence and because things are handmade to order, we are limited to 14 for this GB. 14??? You heard that correctly. Unfortunately, that is all that the manufacturer can handle at this time. If the demand is there, we can run a second GB after the success of this one. Orders will be taken as a "first-come, first-served" basis until all 14 are spoken for.

Creation Schedule
Products are created after the orders are placed. The system is first-come, first-serve. Within 48 hours of placing an order request, the vendor will contact you with an estimate time before your item is finished. If the timeframe causes inconvenience you can cancel the order within the next 48 hours. Typically, these bumpers take 2-3 days to produce, from start to completion. Due to the nature of these being hand-made, orders will be produced and fulfilled in the order that they are received.

Also to note, each additional part adds an estimated 2-3 business days to the production time of your order, due to all of these parts being ‘bespoke’, handmade to order.

Shipping to the USA
When offered, the shipping to the USA is a flat rate of $376 USD per bumper or $508 USD for a pair of bumpers in the same container. Adding a bootlid to the order will result in an extra $229 USD for shipment, a roof an extra $173 USD and fenders an extra $163 USD. Shipment of a CSL diffuser or an extra pair of splitters is free of charge, as the item can fit in the bumper box.

The prices do not include any import taxes USA customers may run into with these items. The buyer will need to pay those when the item arrives.

Updates

UPDATE: Aug 09, 2017

Hey everyone,

 

The option to have your bumper come pre-painted from the factory has been added to the Group-Buy configuration. The cost for painting is an additional $120. You will find a drop-down menu to select what color your car is. Please note that without having your car in person for reference, the paint match may show a subtle and slight variation between the bumper and your vehicle, based on the condition of your stock paint.

The option to select between 1x1 and 2x2 Carbon Fiber weave patterning for the CSL Boot-Lids has been added to the “Available Add-Ons” section. Due to the 1x1 Carbon Fiber having a slightly higher material cost than the 2x2 Carbon Fiber weave, you will note that the 1x1 CF adds an additional $40 for the CSL Boot-Lids as compared to the 2x2 version.


Also to note, each additional part adds an estimated 2-3 business days to the production time of your order, due to all of these parts being ‘bespoke’, handmade to order.

 

When the deal opens up for payment tonight at midnight PST, you’ll be asked to finalize your configuration before paying your deposit. At that time you can choose to add these options to your order.

Terms

Ordering & Payment:

Group Buys are a special order limited time offer. Pricing is exclusively available to those who participate and complete payment as required within the allotted time period. No rain-checks, including members who showed interested during the feeler period.

Orders can only be placed during the Open phase of a Group Buy. Payment information will be collected and an authorization created for $300 during checkout. At the close of the Group Buy, the final paid member tally determines the discount reached. Order totals are adjusted down if required and the $300 non-refundable deposit is collected. When your order is ready to ship, a notification will be sent with details about how to submit payment for the balance. The balance needs to be paid before your order can ship.

Discount:

The discount reached for the Group Buy depends on the number of people to pledge at a specific discount tier. This deal requires 10 people to pledge at a minimum of discount of 10% off in for the 10% discount to become unlocked. For the 15% discount to become unlocked, 14 people would need to pledge at any discount level.

The discount only applies to the bumper selected during the pledge process. The discount does not apply to any accessories selected.

Maximum Participation:

This Group Buy is limited to 14 bumpers. If the maximum participation is reached before the Payment Phase is set to close, the deal will automatically close. At that time no one else would be able to pledge.

Creation Schedule:

Products are created after the orders are placed. The system is first-come, first-serve. Within 48 hours of placing an order request, the vendor will contact you with an estimate time before your item is finished. If the timeframe causes inconvenience you can cancel the order within the next 48 hours.

Shipping to the USA:

The shipping to the USA for this GB is a flat rate of $376 USD per bumper or $508 USD for a pair of bumpers in the same container (it is the responsibility of the buyer to organize combined purchases, if the buyer wishes to share the cost of shipping by combining orders with another individual. Please note, the buyer assumes all risk and responsibility if combining their purchase with someone else). Adding a bootlid to the order will result in an extra $229 USD for shipment, a roof an extra $173 USD, and fenders an extra $163 USD. Shipment of a CSL diffuser or an extra pair of splitters is free of charge, as the item can fit in the bumper box.

The prices do not include any import taxes USA customers may run into with these items. The buyer will need to pay those when the item arrives.

Refunds, Exchanges, and Cancellations:

Group Buy orders may only be exchanged if the product is defective. There are NO refunds on Group Buy orders. All orders are considered special order due to the unique production, fulfillment, and pricing of product. They do not share the same terms and conditions as traditional e-commerce purchases.

Product options may be changed, and orders may be cancelled prior to the close of the Group Buy by contacting the vendor. Once the Group Buy closes, options may not be changed. If you want to cancel an order before it has been shipped only 50% of deposit will be returned. For such cases, you need to contact the vendor.

We recommend purchasing product at the retail price directly with the vendor or one of their affiliates if you would like a traditional return policy.
