Besides the fit and finish issues, the main beef is how bad the integrated LEDs suck on almost all undertails.

I know if someone developed a really nice looking quality product with BRIGHT LEDs, I'd for sure buy it.
I bought my Hotbodies simply for expediency, and it was far better fit/finish than the Bestem I first tried.

I got the hotbodies knockoff from ebay for half the price already painted and the fit & finish are spot on. Just had to drill 2 extra holes for mounting points but thats it. The leds are alright not as bright as I'd like in the daytime but plenty bright at night.

I like it. I wanted the hotbodies one that used the stock lights like the one at the top of the page. But then I saw it up close and wasn't to impressed.

i have a dussault and it's been nothing but problems. if you really want one check www.rackinmotion.com that's the mototeck website, which might have bought out dussault?

do yourself a favor and stick with stock.

I've decided...

Well, I think you've all pretty much settled it for me. The whole undertray thing sounds like it's way more hassle than what it's worth. One of my things was to keep things like indicators and brake lights functioning at least as well as factory, if not better. I've wondered if there was a way of fitting a trackday-style thing and having a removable licence plate holder/indicator thing, a la R6, but after reading everyone elses' problems, I'm going to cut the standard unit down. I think I'll go out and buy a standard second unit, draw it up, carve it up, finish it off nicely and be done with it!
