No, shipping not included. The price for both is the same: $179. Shipping for the Moss one is slightly higher, at least for me, something like 6 bucks more. Moss does not mention any brand name, but from the pictures and descriptions it is the same one.

I have no idea if hardware is included with either one. Since is it "simple bolt-on" installation and is not mentioned, I imagine HW is left up to the buyer in both cases. Half a dozen bolts and nylock nuts will run you what? 5 bucks max?


I still think they (FM) should be offering more of a price break, as they currently have 27 confirmed buyers.

If they hit the 169 price, I'm in, but I won't sign up until then. So, 29 (kinda).

Self-tapping? I'm not sure I'd trust them to hold up very well, as there isn't a lot of meat on the underside of the front lip to grab into.

If that's what they are, and what you used, are they holding okay?

To be honest I can't remember 100%. Mine is holding just fine whatever it is. I'd check now but the car is 15 min away.

Last Day!!! I got in on this today. 6 more and it's down to $169.00 for everyone. Now I have to figure out what to do with my R-package front lip. If the mounting holes are the same, I can switch them out.

-Cheers,

Jim

I'm also on the fence here, I mean this isn't something I need, so when the time comes I wouldn't really cry over ten bucks...

Don't wanna crap on GB, I do appreciate us being included-just hoping to have seen a bit better of a bargain considering the volume...

Or you can wait for Moss to have another 15% off sale. They have them a couple times a year. That's how I got my Hardcore rollbar.

$199.00 everyday price but, 5 more people get in on this and it drops down to $169.00. I'm no math wizz but that's gotta be like 15% off.

BTW, "Thanks" goes out to you guys on this site for making this happen.

-Cheers,

Jim

This is true.

Me front lip money turned into radiator money over the weekend. The HD lip lives a little longer. Haha.

Yea, you're definitely not a math wiz.

Moss everyday price is $179.95... 15% off is 27 dollars off. Shipping for me is 22.35 from them. That brings the total to $175.30 shipped. Moss just offered the 15% off in April. I'm sure it'll come around again.

So you're really not saving that much by this deal and FM has yet to comment on whether or not the spoiler is in fact the same. So in fact, this group buy is just getting FM a lot of business for the same money as elsewhere but people think they're getting a killer deal.

15% of 200 is 170, for the FM. Though the Moss lip would be a better deal.

It's also regularly "on sale" for $199.99 on Togue Run's website, so if this is what Moss is selling, they're selling it $20 cheaper than their supplier does.

Unless Moss just gets it with other overseas orders from the manufacturer.

True, it could be a knock off of a knock off. Or maybe Moss gets them from Garage Vary

I ordered. 33 "official" buyers, so I should be #34. One more for the lower price.

Maybe not the best deal, but slightly better than Moss with shipping.

Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to the discussion. I think Moss dropped the price in response to the group buy. You'll have to ask them about their pricing strategy.

These do come with the hardware you need to install them. They are self-tapping screws, but they seem to work. Mazda uses self-tapping screws when they attach plastic to plastic, by the way - check out what's used on the factory plastic undertray.

We've cleared 35 now, so anyone who orders before we close on Friday gets the lower price.
