RW Carbon Products - Quality/Fitment Thoughts?

Has anyone bought installed the RW Carbon products for the F80/82 M3/M4? Im looking at getting the mirror caps, interior trim, and some exterior stuff but wasn't sure about the fitment and quality? They have very good prices for their stuff as opposed to other vendors and OEM.

Can anyone who has bought the products chime in on fitment/quality. Thanks.

Figment is good, quality is randomly good (I had one with issue), and overall experience is just like its price.

My experience is limited to their extension side skirts, the 3D front lip and the carbon fiber shift console replacement. I had no problem installing any of these- fitment was good in all three instances. One note about the console- when re-attaching the Drivelogic button with the original screws, do not over-tighten- this would make the button impossible to actuate. A slight loosening solved the problem. Also, shipment is slow with RW. It took a month after my order was placed (and CC charged) to get my parts because they were not in stock, and once they were, shipping out was delayed by a few days. Your mileage may vary. But, the guys at RW are great- very responsive to e-mail inquiries and very helpful with pre and post sales questions.

No issue with my RW 3D Carbon Front lip. Fit and finish were spot on and installation was easy. I'm eyeing other parts from them for the future mods.

I have the M4 look spoiler and MP style diffuser. Both fit great, in my case both were in stock and I received them within a week of ordering.

Got there rkp diffuser replica and it didn't fit the middle fin looked shorter than the rest but when I put it on the counter it wasn't that it was shorter it was bowed so when I went to put it on you literally had to force the ends up to get them to click which they didn't and when I wanted to return it he said they where all like that and I would still have to pay the restocking charge, so I will never get anything from them.

That's sucks... I've been looking for a decent rkp replica diffuser. Haven't seen one yet.

I got all my stuff from matt @ RW, it fits great and he one time it didn't he relaxed it no questions asked. So I highly recommend going through matt direct!

Mine is F32 but I went thru RW Carbon for their 3D 'Style' CF spoiler. I had heard only good things about them - was afforded a 5% discount when ordering, spoiler shipped same day & was at my house in 3 days

Was well packaged & arrived undamaged/perfect.

EZ install:
  • Pulled front of car up on Rhino ramps
  • Cleaned underneath and front edges of bumper with alcohol
  • Attached 3M tape along the top edges of spoiler-leaving xtra length of protective film hanging out on ends
  • Spoiler uses (4) OEM mounting bolts under bumper - holes on spoiler aligned perfectly with the factory holes
  • I started all 4 of the bolts, leaving front edge hanging down somewhat - then came around and pushed the front edge of spoiler into place, pulling protective film as I went
  • There are (4) more holes under spoiler in center for the self-tapping screws they send+(2) on each end close to wheel opening
  • Zip those screws in & done

I couldn't be happier with the fitment (and I'm fairly anal about those things) - don't hesitate to buy items from RW

Rw is piece of mind. Same concept of replica style parts found on eBay but they guarantee fitment. Slight difference in price but worth it since shipping is expensive

Running rw 3 sides, v style diffuser, carbon fiber mirror replacements. Everything fit like a glove. My shop was surprised for the v style rear fitment. Said t was the best they have ever seen even compared to the real thing

Also using all carbon pieces for my x5m from Rw. Couldn't be happier with their products, price and service
