beautiful car!! Not quite sure about the side blades, they just seem really out of place and seem to spoil the look somehow.... Spoiler is great!

IMO to each his own... but the car looks naked without the skirts. Really cleans it up. Skyer makes great products!

The longer I own the car (2 years with the M but over 10 counting the 3.0si), the more I appreciate the factory lines even more. All these bits are nice but I think the car looks just as good even without them. I just wish the M in general had more aggressive fenders.

OP - props for keeping those wheels so damn clean lol. My street wheels have a lot of spokes like yours and it's so hard to keep looking fresh.

I think the carbon extensions accentuate the beautiful body lines perfectly and a black car with multi spoke wheels is a OCD car enthusiasts worst nightmare.

Love those side blades... Even on standard side skirts they still look awesome to me. If they ever do another production run I'll definitely be swapping my current side extensions out for the Skyer ones.

Yep, and I think they look awesome with the side blades. The shape of the blades might match up a little bit better with aero skirts, but they still do a great job of updating the look of the car.

I can see how the blades look a bit off on their own... but combined with a proper diffuser and splitter I think the look will really shine.

It's on the list if I can get a set for a decent price which will probably be never. I have the option of adjusting the blades in more with less sticking out I'm going to mess with it when I get a chance.

Aero side skirts are great but they are super rare and expensive. These are also super rare as they will never be made again but not super expensive and I already had the matching wing that I picked up used on this forum. Also the quality of carbon is top notch.

How about from these angles? Try not to zoom in too much. You gonna love them before I'm done with you! 😁

I can't even recall where I bought my aeros from at this point, it's been so dang long since I got them. I'm guessing they've become rather scarce at this point?

I sooooo wish I had found out about the blades before they sold out. Skyer said if I find 5-7 people that are interested, they'd do another production run, but we'll see. I've never been overly thrilled with the extensions I put on, but they were decent enough not to take them off.

They are up there with hard tops/fit kits and convertible side covers in North America. Not sure about the UK and Europe.

I held off at first because I jumped on the Turner CSL air box preorder but then got reeled in by the last set! And of course I had to get them xpel wrapped and ceramic coated.

Makes sense, I doubt they made a large number of them back during the productions years. Maybe a used set if a part-out pops up on LKQ?

I really hope Turner is able to follow through with shipping their airboxes in a reasonable time, with everything that is going on. I nearly pulled the trigger on one, but decided to go with Evolve since shipment was guaranteed. Looks like they'll be a nice product!

Not trying to hijack your thread but I installed the Skyer blades this weekend and I have the aero skirts. My biggest worry is that the blades would sit out too far. With the aero skirts they are just right. They are positioned if you stand directly over top that the skirts and blades are about the same distance out except for the kick out in the rear. From photos it looks like they sit way out.

I also have a rear diffuser on the way too.

Unfortunately winter is still here and have not been able to get out to get some decent photos.
