I'm gonna call bull **** on that. If you where bitching at the companies thats one thing. But you where talking crap about the people who have reps. Saying if they can't afford og flares then they shouldn't even try.

Speaking if V2's do we even know what model it's for? Like I know the original where for the second generation impreza but are the v2s gonna be for Gen 2 or gen 3 or even gen 4?

Yeah considering its a V2 and not just a remake of the originals that would hint to a new style. There would be no point to release a version 2 and have them be the exact same product. I dont know if that actually means that they are going to be for multiple body styles, I would assume a large population of GD bodies want them but I know the demand would be damn close for the GR, there is no way that they will be able to be used from 02-14 so I am really curious to see how this plays out.

Look at the rocket bunny stuff, they develop good looking over fenders and now companies all over the world are doing the same design. End of the day its business, it doesnt have to be pretty it just has to work

Hahaha

"I don't know what IP is."

Of course you don't!

No ones surprised the part got ripped off. It eventually happens, we've all seen it many times before.

But we're also allowed to talk **** on the thieving pieces of **** that perpetuate the problem.

Don't mean to be a bad news bear the v2s are going to be only sold to a select few people that he knows. To keep people like forcefags and crap creations from replicating them. And it will be 06-07 since his car is a 07 beyond that idk how far he's guna take the v2s. But The v1s will be available to the public.

Incorrect, I know of at least 3 companies in Europe that are making exactly the same products as rocket bunny. This also applies for ducktail boot lids across Impreza, MR2 and MX5's and thats just touching the surface. Like I have mentioned I have had my parts ripped off too I have been in the same boat and will be soon again when I design some new products this year. Business is business at the end of the day, people wont stop copying other products no matter how hard you try the best way to deal with it is to keep ahead of the curve by releasing new designs to keep people interested. Also selling the original part at whats its worth on todays market not whatever price tag you think its worth helps too then other companies wont be as tempted to come in and undercut you if there isnt much profit margin

Lol buisness is business lol like you would know what a ****ing business is your pathetic excuse for a rep companie your not even a business lol. A real business makes their own stuff instead of stealing. I like how you parade around here like ur cool your ****ing pathetic a companie has to rip of a dude who makes flares on the side cuz their **** company can't come up with it's own idea so they Gota look to find a way to make money to further they replicatin non original asses. It's called respect but I guess you where never taught that. You'd rather see your own personal gain then to think of the community. It's companies like you that have ruined the car community. Find it funny that the rep companies only copied the 05s lol so pathetic. I know ur just guna not care cuz your a scum bag. Your guna try and make some cool comeback use a lil emoji but at then end of the day your still
The lowest forum of a companie **** ur not even that just a leach just waiting for the next trending thing u can hop on to replicate to try and make money off someone else's hard work.

This. 100%. F fake parts. It isn't a quality issue. It's a plagiarism issue. You just copy other people's work and pass it off as your own. Not only do I refuse to rock fake parts on my cars, I refuse to sell fake parts at my shop. Nor will we install them.

can we just give it up. ben is in the uk making quality parts that people want. do they look the same as the karlton flares yes. do karlton flares look the same as pocket flairs found on big rigs, ambulances, and many other vehicles yes. so stop acting like dude was first one to make a flare like this. do you think majority of people in the uk even know what karlton flares are or want to pay the price for them on top of shipping across the pond. how many things in the world have imitations or reps......everything. do you really think all these brand name parts that are so called legit just come out of the blue without being inspired by other products. imo things should be judged by their quality and usefulness not by the name stamped on it. why do people want to buy legit parts id like to think its because of their quality and fitment that built the companies reputation. /rant

I'm laying in bed using my phone and angry punctuation and spelling are the least of my concerns I'm just trying to get **** out. And it's an Internet forum not a school essay or a work document.

Look they same? They are the ****ing same exact copy molds made of them then copied their is a difference from a pocket style vs completely taking molds of the originals then making reps of the exact same. kei miura, Kato-san, Nakai-sa all make over fenders but you don't see them taking others **** then making copies they all are different look at HT they made their own over fenders for the GRs same with that other company that made flares for the GR they are not carbon copies they know how to be original.

i agree that taking molds and reproducing the flares is grounds for yours an more then likely karltons anger. but he has made a quality reproduction of a flare that people wanted an were no longer able to attain for one reason or another. void filled. if this is truely as big of a problem as it seems then there are legal actions that should be taken to acquire royalties.so can we move on an get back pics

another perty one of infeks ride in the old color
