Hello.
I was looking for a carbon fiber bonnet scoop.
I found them from:
mini speed £84.26 + vat
BenFer Performance $250
JCW ?? price ??
minimania $400

Any comment on quality? does it look good after one year?

Why this is sooooo expensive?

its CF!!!

to start, the minispeed one, like moss is most likely a CF overlay, so not real cf, that's why its so inexpensive.. if ur just going for the look then go for it... it's cheap abs plastic w/ cf overlay.. but people dont have to know that!

ben fer makes pure cf products.. so u can trust their quality

cant comment on mini mania's

Ah, as stated above, unless you want fake carbon fibre, you pay for what you get, even the best ones like BFP are'nt perfect like everyone seems to think CF comes out like everytime. THE REASON THEY LOOK PERFECT IS BECAUSE THEIR FAKE.
Unless you spend a forune on CF, you will have faults.

the lip is from BBR. Fake CF and does'nt do anything. Have one of the first and has'nt made a difference in all 15 months.

Is there somebody who know how much the new JCW CF "race-style" rear spoiler cost?

I think its Aluminium not CF. I have an CF M7 wing which is pretty much the same.
The JCW website should have a price for you.
Yes, there is also a aluminium spoiler available, but !that! aluminium spoiler is since this month also available in CF! I know it because our dealer in Belgium gave us a brochure with al the "new JCW accessoires" but they don't know the prices!
But thanks very much!

PS: have you got a foto of your CF M7 wing?

I do, but cant put them on here, Id probably be banished for soliciting my 'CF wares'.
Be aware though that even the JCW is a bugger to put on!

I think the M7 is a APR aerofoil rebranded. Probably very very similar. Considering the price of a JCW aluminium, go the M7!
