Interesting. Do you have a pic of the entire car?

Do they make access panels with a small aero lip on the rear edges (forgot where I saw those before)?

The one with rear lip is from TW racing in HK.

Sorry, I forgot to take pic for the entire car

The looks are good, not sure about the function.
The vortex generators are normally use to keep the air attached to a declining slope longer, say a hatchback.

In this case the air needs to go up, which tends to stay attached, verses going down, say over a hatch back.

Not sure that it wont help, but.... I like the looks!

Sorry to bring up this dead thread, but I lost one of my access panels in a terriable "I'm a jackass" incident. I saw these for sale on EBay for the last 2 years of my ownership, but now that I want this set I can't find them. Where can I purchase them??

No idea. I don't think there is enough demand for this item.

Let's take a vote... Can you offer some rough pricing estimate?

I would love to have one with 6K full CF

lol im sorry but that just looks ridiculous. As another guy said before, not functional and atleast to me it ruins the "flow" of the front of the car. Just looks too weird. Maybe if there was a benefit to adding them I could see it.

No, I won't make those fins, as they are not thin at all.

I will only make OEM version. Will get you the price tomorrow.

Hi, just got a donation from a fellow member,

But in snail courier service.

So the 100% CF cost is as following:
- First 10 sets, USD660/set shipped
- First 20 sets, USD620/set shipped
- First 30 sets, USD590/set shipped

And the CF+G cost is as following:
- First 10 sets, USD610/set shipped
- First 20 sets, USD570/set shipped
- First 30 sets, USD540/set shipped

Anyone interested?
