I purchased one a couple of weeks ago and am still waiting on mine. (from ebaby) I will report back when it arrives and fitment questions...
Good deal! Did you purchase both the front and rear or just the front in carbon fiber? Glad to see someone jumping on this, thanks!

Doc, did you ever receive the front lip? I would like to know how it fits and how it goes with the ARKYM rear.

I'm bored (I ran out of mods to buy) and thinking about getting a front lip or the ISF specific splitters off EBay.
I would love to buy one of the Rolex priced lips but I'm pretty sure it will be a victim of the wonderful Boston roads at some point.

I just got mine a few days ago and took it and my other pieces to the installer's shop to get a coat of clear put on the lip and diffuser and the roof spoiler painted blue... The Areofunction lip was protected very very well with 2 or 3 layers of different foam etc. Looks Amazing! and seemed to fit well when I held it up to the bumper.... I hope to have it installed in the next week or two! I DEFINITELY will take pics when finished. The carbon weave looks identical to the Arkym diffuser btw.....

Thanks for the update, good news about the CF matching. Look forward to seeing the pics and fitment review.
Your still messing with the rear diffuser? Why is it back off or did you never put it back on. I didn't like the 3M tape so I took a more permanent approach.

I'm sorry! I should have taken pics after I unpackaged it!
It's at the installers now getting cleared...

I removed it the next day after putting it on myself... I didn't get a good fitment using the 3M tape and trying to do it myself... (had a few small gaps..) So after spending over a dozen hours IIRC cutting it off my bumper with a serrated knife and a razor blade
and getting all the 3M adhesive off the bumper and diffuser I decided to wait to have the proffesionals install it at the same time my front lip came in..... which as I have said on here has been nearly a year and a half wait since I ordered a Lexon one from VIP... (that never arrived for nearly year and I finally canceled my order)... then this lip ordered..... and more delays!
But.... I will be having a big soon I'm sure!!!
I'm also having him paint a 1-2mm line on the top edge of the rear diffuser in a dark charcoal color similar to another member on here (I can't recall who...) to make the edge look a cleaner....
He's charging $500 to clear the lip and diffuser and paint the roof spoiler blue and to install all... .is that reasonable???
