Here's one with completely re-done fender to suit the vents. 

 

The current ones in the market from China is using existing fenders to cut the holes and then purchase the vents and glued it in. problem is the thing will pop-up in due time and fenders at the vents area won't be 100% flushed.

 

The other solution is, of course, buy the original XD 

 

Will update once it makes it way to my car.

There is a lot more to it than vents........... The shape, angle and depth of veins all determines how effective they are...........OH just copy the GT3rs ...........

No way, Nissan has never read the Porsche play book or we would have a better car....................

I suppose they got it from their GT3 racing GTR and not the GT3RS...?

Considering their one piece side skirts goes for selling at $5000 each piece, I doubt the side fender price won't be far off.

Its almost as flush as the fenders, as these are not using existing fenders and cut a hole and just stick it on. Its been done from scratch. You can see the 2 slight side lines after the grills that comes at the aft part. You don't get those if you just cut the existing fenders which are metal, not FRP.

 

Pics up, and let the photos do the talking!

So you bought the insert and then modified a set of aftermarket frp fenders to fit the vented carbon insert? Looks like a great job. Well done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

No... not me... the workshop did it; I'm just an end-consumer :D They practically took a set of original, have the artwork made and cut out the space, fabricate the vents, and then put it in place. Then re-mould a new set of the fenders and vents.

yes, it looks pretty good! totally flushed and not much pop-up / out  as I would expect.

Hey! First time posting here, and these fenders are the reason. I just saw these for sale:

http://www.kd-aerost...duct-p7869.html

I emailed the vendor to see if they were willing to do dry carbon to match the premium model rear diffuser. I'm OCD like that.

It looks really good man! Nice install for sure. Only question: what's your plan for the inside fender wall? I was really hoping somebody could see a 2020 nismo in real life to take a photo of the inside fender wall for reference. I know they did the R&D for appropriate aero and I would love to copy them.
