DONT BUY RW CARBON

Guys. This is a warning to not buy RW Carbon. This is an intro post, I'll be posting photos soon but I'm the meantime I want to make sure everyone is aware.

I recently purchased a spoiler and the edition 1 front lip for my 205 c63s. Both parts were not what I expected. Neither part fit properly. For the spoiler there is a quarter inch gap on one side (was installed by a professional shop). But whatever, I lived with the gap. Now the lip is a different story. The part doesn't fit at all. The side wings bow out way too much and there is no way to keep the part flush on the car. I took it to three different shops and they all said this lip wont fit. So I finally contacted RW and these guys have the worst customer service ever. They basically questioned my understanding of the installation, doubted that I took it to a shop, and kept telling me the part would fit once I were to drill holes, when clearly it wasn't going to. I went back and forth with these guys and they kept telling me they wanted to talk to the shop I was working with. Seriously? I sent them pictures that it doesn't fit, talking to my shop wasn't going to convince me otherwise.
Anyway now I'm stuck with a $700 front lip that they won't return, and a spoiler that looks like crap.
Go to Mode Carbon if you want parts that fit. Don't go to these guys. Pics to come.

In before lockout.

Why did you deny RW Carbon from talking with the shop? That's the best thing to do.

Exactly, if you deny RW Carbon the chance to talk to the shop, how can you blame them for "questioning" whether you actually took it to a shop or not?

Just give them the 3 shops numbers, let the shops tell them their parts don't fit and get them refunded/exchanged.

If you can't do that...I dunno...maybe you didn't take it to a shop??

Please send us some photos to validate your issues.

RW seem like a very credible brand.

I have their rear diffuser. Let me preface with this: 99% of aftermarket parts will not fit better than 90%. This is why I always have them installed at shops with fabrication capabilities, because that's just how it goes. I've had aftermarket parts from top end companies have issues here and there.

That said, my RW Carbon diffuser certainly needed some tweaking and troubleshooting to go on 100% perfectly flush, but the shop I took it to is good and they made it fit 100% flush and secure. Knowing that its a rarity to make 100% fittment, I'd still go with RW carbon again.

I agree and well said.

I wouldnít say donít buy from RW Carbon. I really liked that they had the items I ordered in stock and that they shipped the next day, but I do understand his frustration with the edition 1 front splitter for w205 coupe. I purchased that and their rear diffuser. The diffuser fit fine once RW talked to the shop, but the splitter was a no go for me. When I ordered it, I was told that it only needed to be bolted from the bottom of the car, as Iím unwilling to put holes on the sides of my bumper. When the shop showed me the test fit on my car the splitter bowed out on both sides. My splitter wasnít flexible, so it would require a lot of force for it to lay on the bumper. RW said it would need tape and maybe one or two screws per side. The shop didnít believe it would fit properly even with two screws per side and double-sided tape. Everyone thought the splitter looked great, but fitment was the issue. RW agreed to take it back and issued me a return label that day.

This guy may have the unit I returned and the same fitment issue.

I have their ED1 front lip, GTX rear spoiler and diffuser. As skim7x noted above there will be some modifications needed to fit properly.
My items fit very well (as my past orders with RW), the front lip required a couple of small holes drilled on the underside of the bumper and front lip to keep it on at higher speeds (I hope you don't think double sided tape will do that)..
The rear spoiler fit perfectly with 3m adhesive, and the rear diffuser, as noted above required a little bit of sanding the top portion to sit totally flush over the OEM trim piece but looks great.

Also where are your pics to back this up??

Koorosh,

After countless emails back and forth we offered to call the "shops", as well as return the lip and test fit here on a local car, but for some reason you would not give us the shops number after we asked multiple times. When we asked for you to return it so we can confirm fitment you chose not to respond as well. We believe the lip fits just fine, you just do not want to use the screws how we are advising even though the install method is the same as OEM ed1 lip. If the lip was unmodified I would have no issue returning it, but the fact is it was painted and it is no longer in new - resellable condition.

ALWAYS test fit before painting, rookie mistake. LOL

lips and spoilers like that cheap are just fiberglass anyway, genuine carbon fiber parts are like 10 times more expensive. I would rather not waste money on heavy pieces like that, they just make your car slower.

you're driving a 4000 lb sedan. lets not kid ourselves into thinking CF will make the car faster or that a couple of pounds of cosmetics will make the car slower.
