I am 100% sure both Bayson-R and Best race get their parts from the same place in China. Because they do not manufacture these stuff.

In some cases, maybe, but not here.
BaysonR side skirts are fiberglass, and Best Racing's are Urethane.

If Bayson R sells urethane ones, they will buy it from the same place and sell it to us. Trust me

Yup, I just got mine (poly) from bayson, I plan on taking pictures of them off the car and possibly do a write up on the install with more photos since I have a wrx and they say they only fit "sti" sideskirts. I've only seen pictures of them on a wrx once or twice here.

Do the Bayson r poly ones have the pre-dilled holes for mounting screws like the ones I posted?

Got the new Best Racing urethane skirts on. Was basically the same as the install of the fiberglass ones, just with a few extra screws. Use the stock clips (which aren't long enough to go through the OEM skirts AND the add-on skirts in the front most and rear most holes), plus a few screws into the OEM skirts. For the front most and rear most holes, I used push-in plastic nut inserts into the holes in the rocker panel, then bolted through the aftermarket skirts and OEM skirts.

Thank you thank you for putting up your pics. They look really good.
Did you end up painting them or did they look that good out of the box?
There doesn't seem to be a twist in them like you had in the fiberglass ones.
Can you share with us more about the issues that you had with the stock clips and what you used to get around that issue (pics would be awesome)
Then if I could ask you to jack up your car again and take some pictures of the underside would be nice as well and maybe some of the seem between the two of them on the out side. When I get a set I think I'm going to be temped to put a bead of clear silicone in the out side edge of the seam to try and prevent anything getting in between them.
Did the screws that are used to also attach it to the OEM side skirt seem to bit well?

- I left them unpainted and just used a really good black trim conditioner on them.
- There is a bit of a 'high spot' in the middle where the flare flattens out but it's not as noticeable as the fiberglass ones, that's for sure.
- As for the factory push in clips, they are essentially like these:

They go thru the factory skirts into a hole in the rocker panel. When you add the bottomline skirts, the clips aren't quite long enough to go through the thickness of the bottomline skirts AND the factory skirts, especially at the front and rear, which is where the plastic is the thickest. So for the front most and rear most holes I pushed a plastic foot insert into the hole in the rocker panel, then bolted through the bottomline and factory skirts. Inserts are similar to these:

I managed to force the rest of the factory clips in since the bottomline skirts aren't as thick throughout the middle where they mount. Longer clips would make it a lot easier of an install.
- The screws to attach them to the factory skirts did bite well and weren't too long. I didn't use 9 in each one like they suggest, I only used 4, and they are very secure (I just didn't want that many holes in my freshly painted factory skirts lol).
- Next time I'm at my buddies garage (in the pics above) I will jack it up again and take some pics for you.

I've never looked at the RS side skirts so it would be hard to tell. If the skirts are different then you might have to modify them to make them work.

I have duraflex. they are fiberglass. fitment was almost perfect. and I haven't had any issues with them being fiberglass vs poly.

This is how bad information spreads like a virus. This is hearsay. They get the parts from the same manufacturer. I could have them made in chocolate if I wanted... The company owns the moulds and these shops just order the products in the material they chose.

I would be interested in how the carbon on them end up looking.
I ended up paint mine black with plasti dip. I did that mostly because I have some authentic charge speed rear spats that are in a carbon finish. So painting the spats with plasti dip doesn't hurt the finish.
I'll throw some pictures up when I get a chance. Sense putting them on I went on a 3300 miles road trip and they have held up great.

Well, looks like you were right about the fitment issues. My friend and I were able to get the passenger side skirt on without much of a hiccup for some reason, but now we're stuck on the driver side due to several of the reasons noted above.

- Some of the square holes on the CS skirts are cut out too big for some reasons, so the OEM clips do not fully cover them.
- Along with that, some of the holes are also angled slightly, so the clips aren't even long enough to go all the way in. I think part of the reason is due to my pinchweld being a little tweaked from a previous owner jacking the car up incorrectly.

The skirts and spats did not come with any hardware whatsoever, which sucks.

I think I'm going to have to try and drill new holes into both skirts as well as my rocker panel to get this damn thing on.. Haven't even tried to mess with the spats yet. >_<

Here's a crap cell phone pic of the passenger side on

I want to know if these would look any decent on an 06-07 WRX Wagon. I really want a set but without flares or STi skirts, I don't know if they will look good.
