After reading many threads on the good and bad of Vorsteiner CF products I decided to purchase the Hood and Front Spoiler for my M6 Convertible. I could not be happier with the products. The fit and finish was excellent. It took over a month to get the parts, but other than that it was a great experience. The most important part is having a good install. I use C2 Design in Tampa for all my mods. These guys are top notch in every area. They got my hood and spoiler painted and clearcoated perfectly and did a great job on the install making sure the fit was excellent. Here are a few photos.

Actually, they are carbon fiber front and rear. I got them from
European Auto Source (EAS). Most of my car is Carbon Fiber, front grills, mirror covers, roundels, fender grills.

All carbon fiber will yellow over time in the sun. Clearcoating helps delay the inevitable. The carbon fiber is a good finish, but it still needs some buffing and either paint or clearcoat before installing for a good job.

wow that looks good, I like the hamann front but I really am starting to like the stock front with the lip. I just need to replace my front and would rather just do a different brand than get a new stock front.

what about the wheel caps, they are still OEM. it will make a nice differences.
our car is very similar i got a silvertone coupe vorsteiner hood, all carbon mirror cover, emblem, wheel cap. Your lip is a great addition, but the road condition where i am at it wouldn't survive.
I even thought about getting the carbon exhaust tip from meisterchraft, but now it turns out they are fake know offs...

any one know if I can overlay a nice carbon fiber tip on some e-race?

I have Dinan Wheels in the shop getting powdercoated now. I won't be keeping the OEM wheels. The Dinan Wheel set is getting painted Charcol Grey with Black accents. It should look awesome. I'll be running 275 30/19's front and 295 30/19's rear. I'll post pics when they are done. Anyone interested in buying my OEM wheels with PS2's (8000 miles) make me an offer.
