Any experience with RW Carbon?

They have some reviews on their site but was curious if anyone had ordered from them in the past and could comment on fitment/quality of the parts? Seems like a happy medium between ebay parts and genuine parts for front splitter since it will most likely be damaged but fitment may be better than ebay parts.

Thanks

Mine have been mixed. I have their 3d design knockoff rear diffuser and I'm happy with fitment. I'd say 9/10. I also have CF rear seat backs from RW and they fit like crap and squeak every time I get in or move around in the seat. Would not recommend those.

Hit or miss for me as well however they do have excellent customer service in my experience. When they fit they fit great and quality is good. If it is not I suggest you contact them right away and they'll get u squared away.

All the OEM pieces I bought fit perfectly. HoweverX the diffuser was so expensive that I gave RW a chance. The part is OK but fitment was 8/10

Haven't purchased from them as of yet.. But they've been extremely helpful with any questions I've had throughout searching.

If I remember, they just pick out the best pieces from overseas and sell them? If I'm mistaking for another company, feel free to correct me.

I got the Carbon fiber M4 spoiler from them before we started offering our own carbon fiber parts. Quality and fitment were okay for what I paid.

I have their oem style rear diffuser and their CF mirror caps and both fit perfect. They have a fitment guarantee so if you're unhappy , you can return the item

My lower CF splitters are OEM m performance and fit 100%.

RW makes upper CF splitters (more like covers that attach with 3m tape). I purchased them and the fitment is 75% at best. One side fits kind of OK, the other side overlaps where it is supposed to tuck and theres a big gap. Pretty disappointed. Is not flush with the oem bumper

I think a big part of the cf game is having it installed by someone who knows that their doing. With that being said, I've purchased and had them install a lot items over the years. I've been quite happy

They register them first and then become asshats not letting people join and deleting anything knocking them.

So much for how they handle customer service.

I have their front canards and they were almost flawless, but I suppose they’re pretty hard to get wrong. Their delivery quote was in line with what they promised and I’m happy with the result. They were definitely less expensive than the competition, and much less expensive than the BMW GT4 canards on which they’re modelled.

Because cost. RW Carbon is selling these pieces for a fraction of the item they're knocking off. To some the cost savings outstrips the potential for a headache associated with a part that is of poor quality and/or fitment.
