Default Interest In Copies Of Oem Na Front Lip (air Dam), CF or something else

Hi,
I'm negociating with a guy working in composites that would be able to make me copies of the front air dam. Since those things are selling like hot cakes, I'm wondering if there would be interrest in a group buy or just to know if you'd be interrested buying some.

Maybe he would be able to make a carbon fiber version so I think it would be really nice.

For those who don't know what it is,


Please tell me how much you'd pay for a CF version and for a normal version.

**EDIT** If this message is against forum rules, please tell me and I'll remove it!

They sell lower profiled copies for $270, so you;d have to get them made better than that. Get the Rear Skirt done in any material for a reasonable price and you'll get buyers.

I have that guy's headlight intake scoop cover gizmo. Quality is...eh. It fits no where near as good as the factory metal piece. But not bad for the $85shipped I paid for it on ebay. (I'll be going with a homemade NACA duct like braineack if the fit bothers me too much, which it eventually will).

i already have both air dams, but the rear is next to impossible to find anymore. the bidding on the ones i saw on ebay went flippin' insane.

Oh and, http://www.finishlineperformance.com...n&key=MIAE1024 sell the factory front for $169. So you'll probably want to see if anything can be made for around there.

AND http://www.metromotorsports.com/prod...sp?pProdID=203
sells Garage Vary's cool front lip. but for $259, something like this for the price of the OEM lip would be sweet!

Nobody has ever made a rear for Dual Exhaust. Make one of those and sell them as a set for $300 and people will be lined up. Black plastic of course, most carbon fiber looks like it was bought at Pep Boys.
