    I just found this today. It's from a company called Bulletproof Automotive. These new aftermarket parts look very good, keeping the character of the Model S but making it more unique. They are also very reasonably priced.

    I've used this company a lot of my GT-R parts. They do a great job and have great service. Usually they have a rep on the forums to showcase products and handle orders.

    They also take pictures if the product before shipping to make sure everything is ok.

    If people are interested I'll ask the guy I deal with to come on here.

    The stuff fits in with the style of the car pretty well. On front bumpers in particular aftermarket places usually go garish, but those parts look pretty decent. Not my thing, but nice stuff.

    Very sharp looking. Much more aggressive stance but befitting the overall oem styling cues.

    Me too, but I was worried I was hopelessly biased because it makes the S resemble my other car's front end.

    I worry the front end will negatively affect aero and range and that it could cause more wind noise which would be more noticeable on a BEV

    Yes, it looks like both front and side skirts are air catchers - which is often the point of aero packages - to increase downforce at the expense of efficiency. TM has done a thorough job reducing drag on these cars - adding these gewgaws is not going to end well for range.

    I posted a question on their website and got an immediate email response from Mark. I'd like to see some pics of the CF parts installed, as the current ones only show the paint match parts.

    I want this. I also would like to see a full frontal view. I also wonder if this has an aerodynamic advantage.

    Maybe that this Front Diffuser could also protect the Model S from road debris?

    Looks like we can get it for $0.00 from the website above :)

    There are multiple variants too; what's shown is the full CF version? Can't quite tell.

    If I ever spend $$ on a mod, this would be it!

    Still surprised that seemingly-capable modders like these guys haven't tackled the nose cone yet, but, that's for another thread.

    My guess is that it increases the CD of the car.
