Jc Sportline Body Kit

Did ever hear about the JC Sportline body kits? There is one available for GT. I wonder about the quality and fitting of their products?

Their website is jcsportline.net. Look at the kit for 550i GT. What do you think?

Just received the carbon grill piece from jcsportline. Will install it tomorrow and take pics. It looks high quality, but seems a bit narrow compared to OEM version....

Do you have any pictures of the grille? Did you order any other parts? How is the fitting and quality?

I attempted to do it myself and wasn't brave enough to take the internal fittings apart on a new car. So I had the dealer install when they did my Dinan Software upgrade. They said they had to trim it a bit, as it was not an exact fit, but it wasn't that bad. I'm getting use to it. I was expecting a bit more coverage around the lip area, like some I had used in the past on my e39.

Here's the photo (if I linked it correctly...)

Oh yes...gosh yes. With the Sport setting engaged, it's a thrill ride. With Sport+, it's just darn right ridiculous. And I thought the claims of better gas mileage was a hoax...I'm actually seeing 3 to 4 mph improvement...even with a heavy foot.
