Anyone Else Notice this on the GTS?

Been looking at pics of the BMW GTS lately, did anyone else notice that in some pictures there's an added splitter to the front lip, and in others its just the lip? i swear im not crazy, just wondering if there was a reason for this?

Do you have any examples? Remember that the lip changed on the GTS from the time the car was unveiled to the time that it was released.

Looks the same to me. I see something hanging down in the first pic, but other than that, they are the same.

I think it's just the angle where you notice it more.

Yes it extend.... the lip is adjustable .. so when people take shots sometimes the owner had it all the way in so its barely noticeble... they usually put it back when driven on street due to ground clearance.

That's the exact same car. And as someone else mentioned, it just looks different depending on the angle.

Is the lip really adjustable? I don't remember reading anything about it, and it certainly looks static in all of the GTS pics that I've seen.

Es far as I know both the rear wing and the front lip on the GTS are adjustable.
