Thatís an awesome shot and the lip looks good there. It seems like there arenít many options for lips but Iím still looking. I like the maxton one a lot so far. I saw a race haus lip they make in carbon fiber but itís huge compared to the maxton

You gotta buy the Maxton lip. I can ask him home much he would charge for something like that for sure. Iíll get back to you.

Agreed, looks great but it'd take me one trip up my driveway to snap that into a few pieces. At least with the Maxton, it's flexible and will just grind off a bit (ask me how I know).

Driving with a front lip becomes a skill, LOL.

The OSIR lip just replaces the stock lip to carbon fiber and itís crazy expensive.

I think the same stands for the rear.

From what I know there are 2 rear diffuser products available for the RS5
1- from 1sec Tuning our of China. (Has a bad experience with them. Donít recommend)
2- BalanceIT from Japan. They make a bad ass aggressive carbon fiber diffuser. Cons. Itís like $1300 shipped and takes forever to get.

Iím trying to actually develop a rear diffuser but yet need to find a company to take on the construction process.

Beast has access to one that's quite nice. I've seen it in person on Asher's car and it would be my choice. Just aggressive enough without being overt. Looks OEM aggressive without being ricey.

Yah thatís the 1sec one. I ordered one. Took 8 months back n forth with its shipping/ it shipped/ theyíre sending another one yada yada yada. After waiting of over half a year I just decided to cancel it and then asked for a refund. Then didnít get my full refund back. Still waiting for the ďshifter knob and Paddles shiftersĒ that weíre promised to ďmake up for itĒ.

Donít deal with one sec. trust me

I think ECSTuning has the maxton design front lip for the RS5 in a textured black for ~170. Anyone have that? Is the textured black just like a raw cheap looking plastic?

Pretty much. Doesnít look that good. Gloss black is way better. Actually got a friend selling his BNIB maxton Gloss black lip for the rs5 for $250 I believe.

I found this site:

https://store.blackforestindustries.com/madeau8trs5s.html

that can finish it in a carbon look. I wonder if anyone has tried that.

I also found that maxton is selling the gloss black on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07738J66X/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_xPVSBbPRPSQGT

Definitely am considering one of the two options.

ECS has the gloss black version as well. Originally it said out of stock so I signed up for notifications. Came back in stock within days.

I would avoid the textured and the faux carbon as the former looks cheap and the latter looks fake. I suppose you could hydro dip the gloss with a carbon pattern but not sure how well that would hold up ultimately.

I didnít even think to do a full search on ecs tuning. Just looked at the only result google shop brought back 🤦🏼.

Thanks for the heads up, will be ordering the gloss black from ECS here soon.

FYI. ECS doesnít stock a lot of Maxton design parts. Make sure you check the availability date. Sometimes they say available for ship like a month down the road.
If you wanna order one my buddy is selling his. Rand new in box. 2 days shipping. I can link you up with him if you want.

Sold out. They are no longer producing that diffuser as they wanted to keep it limited.

Asher can tell you about his buying experience from 1Sec through me, and also many others on this forum. [up]

For you guys with an add on front splitter, did you just use self tapping screws? Or did you take the bumper off?

I noticed the hardware kit for the maxton front splitter would require the removal of the bumper, but the side skirts look like they come with self tapping screws?

Ape Factory

You do not have to remove the front bumper for the Maxton installation. You do have to remove the main under tray plus the forward under tray to get access to the back side so you can install the nuts.

I used double-sided tape designed for this sort of application as well as the screws for both the side skirts and the front bumper.

Yeah the side skirts are super easy to install in comparison. Just have to carefully line them up. I used painters tape to hold things in place.

Here is my old lip, It was an ABT Carbon fiber lip. I sold it recenlty due to the fact that I knew i would break it lol. So instead i went for a maxton design lip and 1 sec side splitters as my beaters, which is on the last pic. We do need a reliable company that will make an aggressive yet subtle diffuser!
