Best replica carbon fiber lip?

I'm looking to do a few cosmetic mods to my m3 and I want to get a carbon fiber front lip but don't feel like spending a lot for one because I know it will get scratched up living in PA. Does anyone know of any good fitting cheaper ones?

Why not get a plastic gloss black version instead of CF if you're gonna scratch it up anyway. Revinoras starting prices are great and fitment is spot on. I haven't seen a replica lip yet that fits well.

Here is a picture with my Mode Carbon Gts Spoiler. Great price, quality and fitment



Replica pricing for an original high quality product. Can't go wrong with that

How much does the mode carbon lip run around? I was hoping to spend no more than 400 on one

JL-Motoring has great looking product for under 500 bucks. My buddy ordered their GTS style lip and I must say that it does the job. You probably wouldn't be able to tell the difference really since most the high priced brands label their authenticity on the back side so it's never seen anyways. I ordered the front lip, rear diffuser, and M performance trunk lip from them for 1200 shipped. The front lip is a Akrym replica and the rear diffuser is the Vorsteiner replica. The stuff looks great from what all my buddies around here have from them.

Check out the Vorsteiner style lips. Around $250-$500 and fitment works.

I like the carbon VRS lip a lot, and for the money its hard to resist wanting to try it out. Do you know for a fact that it fits good?

From what I have heard about the GTS lip, if you are lowering your car stay away from it. A lot of complaints about it getting damaged easily being that it is so low to the ground. I think the safest bet is the two linked below, IMO. I went with the Akrym replica for functionality and look. I believe the Vorsteiner is pure cosmetic with little function. These two also IMO fill the front end the best. These were the two I choose between.

This is the Vorsteiner replica.

I definitely think that the arkym is the better option here was never a fan of the vorsteiner lip. I was actually thinking about doing just the top portion of the gts without the bottom splitter

Look in to Challenge GT as well. Can't go wrong with either Mode Carbon or Challenge GT. Good luck

The cheapest and best replica ever.

I have these in my car, and hav compared them to OEM ones, and they are the same. Great quality, no fade, real carbon, one great choice!
