Default Front lip options for stock bumper...

SSIA.

My stock bumper is roughed up a bit from careless previous owners. I'd like to get some CSL style lips, any recs?

I've searched but maybe not good enough. Thank you for your help and suggestions!

Khoalty makes a fill piece for stock bumper. I have one quality pretty good, just have to use body tape and nuts to apply.

Plus one on carking. Fast shipping, my only advice is, as you've probably read already, pre-drill holes.

Edit: it's also worth noting that carking had two different style one piece cf splitters. Browse his eBay page and you'll see. One looks like it sticks out a bit more.

Default Re: Front lip options for stock bumper...

My feeling on these splitters is that the center/bottom portion of our bumper is just too rounded off for these to look right. Looks too much like an add on. I still wish someone would offer a splitter where the center section a bit flatter, and more tucked under the bumper.

If it's not clear what I mean, look at the Bimmerworld track splitter. http://news.bimmerworld.com/wp-conte...2/DSC03624.jpg

(obviously this it is way to track oriented and is molded around the bumper, but I like how the center section retains the contour of the stock bumper. and tucks underneath. If someone could mold something along those lines, with integrated CSL splitters on each side, I believe you would have a winner.

Repaint your busted bumper, trying to find the cheap/easy way out with front lips and things will never really give you full satisfaction (unless you just don't care about the car like that).

All front lips look bad for our cars imo

All the "CSL style lips" look good from about 5-7ft. away until you get closer and realize its tacked on ebay sh*t. All the car needs is an aggressive stance, then the naked front bumper looks great.

I get compliments on my CF lip all the time. Maybe people in Vegas just like the "tacked on eBay looking sh*t ". Mod the car the way you want it's your car.

I bought my CF lip from Steve at 365AutoSport. I don't think he is a vendor on here anymore thou.

I'd prefer to have two pieces. I feel like that would look better than one piece across the whole bumper. My m3 is alpine white btw.

I'd rather just leave it stock tbh, will probably just get a new bumper cover when I'm tired of looking at what I have.
