Help with carbon?

What are good, but not too expensive brands to consider for carbon fiber parts such as lip, skirts, diffuser and spoiler?

Don't want to get vorsteiner because its too expensive and I know im going to break them sooner or later so whats a better alternative?

Best not to cheap out, or fitment and quality will be terrible. Ask me how I know.

Did you consider buying it in black and wrap it in carbon. I did that with the front lip. The mirror caps and the spoiler are real carbon. Try Maxton. Their fitment is good and not sooo expensive.

I was thinking of getting non Carbon, and having it painted the same color as the car. Thanks for the maxton, but thats only for the GC and mine is a convertible. I can get the front lip, any suggestions for a back diff and side skirts?
