Awesome man! I have my eyes on them for a while now. I also heard nothing but good review on their side view mirrors too (these are actually First on the list ).

Congrats. They look good.

Thanks guy's. AK, it's funny you mention the mirrors because I'm actually thinking about doing the overlays for the mirrors as well. I think it would tie it all together.

It def will. I think I'll get them together (if I do get them). You must post picture if you get the mirror covers

Quick question, how hard was the install? 5 minutes or 30 minutes?

The install took about 3.5 hours with the cleaning, claying, prepping, taping and of course all this bullsh!%@g . No, really it only took a minute or two for each side. I cleaned the pillars and then wiped them with a 50/50 mix of rubbing alcohol and water. This preps the surface so the tape on the new pillars sticks really well. I'm not sure I like that gap that you get with the overlays for the mirrors. Maybe the replacements would be best.

Quality is very nice and they fit beautifully. They do not look like overlays. They sit completely flush and does not look thicker at all, that was something I was worried about as well.

I like it! Definitely a preferable option to swapping them out with the Spawnaero version. This is a place that I wouldn't mind an overlay. I'm curious just how many of those CF mods from the Z store would look good together. Maybe B pillars, mirrors, and +/- fang/front lip.

yah, i want to do the fang, b-pillar, and maybe the rear diffuser if there one that does NOT have the extra fins like the evo-r one.

if someone offered a small FRP lip and rear spoiler extender, i'd want those too and paint it to match my silver. just little accents here and there is all i want on this car.

Def do it. I think It'll look awesome with the PG.

Go for it.

Now how about this setup:

Mines front lip
Mines rear spoiler add on
CF B Pillars
CF Side mirror (stage 2)
CF rear diffuser

in my opinion!
