How much to make a rear apron with side dual exhaust spaces similar to M3 as opposed to the centre space for the current dual exhaust outlet?

Unfeasible, but I've seen something similar on birds.co.uk called a 'spirit exhaust' apron. Made of normal plastic. :)

Is that CF CF or stuff that looks like CF?

If its CF CF how much lighter is it? Are we talking noticable weight reductions (5-10k dash/doors) or just wankfactor++?

real Cf, not overlay crap.
You'd probably save close to 4-5kg with the doors and dash, but it has a huge wankfactor as well!!

Its 4 pieces but they've all been bonded together to make it look neater.

although it may look a bit overdone with the entire door...but that'll depend how it looks witht he rest of the car!

btw, Isnt that defective since it isnt safe to the passenger and driver during a side on crash? whats the regulations on that?

Bits can be done seperately,
In a heavy side on collision the carbon wont break, its if you continue to use it after the impact that it starts to become dangerous (will seperate under another heavy impact load). And its not defective as its oem fitment and size. The side impact bar within the door is the important thing. What about the porsches and ferraris that come into the country with carbon doors?
