GROUP BUY: ** Carbon Fiber & Fiberglass Side Skirt Extensions ** - ENDED 23/09/17

Post by thanatu55 » Mon Aug 28, 2017 10:29 pm

EDIT: Fiberglass version now also available as a cheaper option.

Ok so after months upon months of searching I finally found the side skirt extensions that I had hoped somebody somewhere had created so I wouldn't have to (Not forgetting that Machine Monkey has also done so successfully and done a mighty fine job of it too).

Having discussed these on the forum here: http://z4-forum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=99695 it became apparent that I wasn't the only one interested, and the possibility of a group buy was raised for the carbon fiber version. So I went ahead and emailed them.

Now, failing a loss in translation I have received what I consider to be a very favourable reply. On their website the carbon fiber skirts amount to €250, which translates to £231.54 at the time of writing this piece. From what I deduce from their email (attached below), they will offer a 20% discount on a group buy of ten or more people (not including shipping), so we are talking €200 or £185.23 per set as of this moment. I will have to enquire again about shipping costs, but my initial impression is that personally I'm quite happy with that as a base.

Update: Shipping is €60 per set with tracking to anywhere in the world (with tracking)

To repeat just for clarity, this is for the carbon fiber version.

You can visit their website here: http://agtstyling.com/index.php/online- ... rts-detail

Here are some pictures from their website:

This is the email I received:
Hello,

We are happy that you send us an email, we have the knowledge of a group buy especially if that take place at a forum! Below you will see and you can show that to your forum friends a group buy that happens after they ask our help, every one was happy and the results of the products was amazing:

Now about the discount, make a list with 10 or more people and we will make 20% at the price of them (not for the shipping costs)


Below is a Z4 photos that we will sponsorships it for this year:
From the Forum link they have provided there is indeed a lot of good feedback and photos of their work.

Update: Confirmation that these are unique to the E85

I welcome any opinions on this as it stands, anything you're happy with or unhappy with, anything you want me to say in response, you may even wish to appoint someone in particular to take the rains to move this onto the next stage, I haven't done this before - maybe you have. I'm willing to be a guinea pig and put my name at the top of a list of interested parties, and include those who showed an interest in my previous thread. Those people are welcome to withdraw their interest and I will PM a link to this thread to each of those people.

If you are interested, please post below. I will add to the list in the order of comments received.

Look awesome :D

Proper skirt extensions on an engineered race car will be there to create downforce / Channel air to the right places. Some may dissagree but I would say the benefit is 99.9 % cosmetic.

I would be keen for a set if you could get them sorted.
Would import charges apply ontop or just shipping? :)

Good question! Honest answer is I don't know but I will try to find out. I have already emailed them back for a shipping cost estimate. I will keep this thread updated as and when I learn more.

As far as I understand, they would be tailored to fit according to the vehicle since they advertise as Z4 skirts rather than their universal and other products, but I will query this with them to be sure.

Based on the image below of their E90 skirts it would seem they accomodate for the vehicles various nooks and cranney's. Again I will check to be sure.

Ok I have an update from Antreas at AGT Styling so I will reel off some answers to the questions posed so far.

- Shipping cost will be €60 / £55.77 (Damn you failing GBP!) worldwide
- There will be no import charges
- There will be no need to modify them as they come ready to fit
- They come with two cutouts on each skirt to accommodate for the Z4's jack points
- Antreas pointed out that Silverzedtom is correct to suggest they are mainly cosmetic... as they don't have a wind tunnel :lol:
- He recommends fitting them with eight screws on each side (requires drilling holes into the bottom of the side skirt)

Below is a picture of the skirts as they will arrive, with cutouts for the jackpoints:
