HP rear wheel hugger and Aero Deflectors

I put on the hugger and aero pieces and the quality is just as amazing as the other CF parts. Then they give you this piece of sh!t bracket that says japan on it and it has a horrible galvanized look for the brake line. If you get this just throw it away... Its doesn't fit you have to bend it and it falls apart immediately... got to Home Depot in the electrical isle get a 3/8" strap bracket, paint it flat black and your in business. But I honestly cannont figur out why BMW did not put these items in CF... Looks much better and whats another 800 considering...

That is one thing that Ilmberger does better. They build the hugger so that it has a tab to hold the lines.

Thanks, yeah its very nice with those on there... But doesn't Limberger have the chain guard attached to it? I'm not a fan of that.... I'm weird though, I wanted to keep everything HP... Cant go wrong either way...

Maddrama question about the rear hugger

The clip that holds the hose, was it easy to get the hose in the clip?
