I'm in Singapore. Not sure if Joshua's pic is fully installed or test fit but the sides definitely can be stuck on properly with 3M tape

Mine actually looks good... I didn't have time to test fit it or look it over much... I'll report back this weekend.

Shipping was fast, considering holidays and it's coming from China. It sure beats spending over 1500 on one

You were able to use the oem mounting holes (plus tape?)...

Did you have to drill the bumper for extra screws at all??

Yes that definitely correct, but I didnt bother with the 3M tape. My authentic Vorsteiner front splitters had about the gap for comparison sake.

OEM mounting holes, you might want to use mounting tape or the upper part if you want perfect flush fitment.

I guess I should really bother with the 3M tape

Of course once you are standing up and looking at it, it becomes hardly noticeable, but definitely not for those obsessive compulsive guys who would be driven nuts by something like that

They are both the same. They use same pictures with different name in the watermark used on pictures.

I have only bought from 4AMotors twice the M3 E92 Front Splitters. Fast shipping and flawless item.

I would never be happy watching something like that in my car. Why didn't you contact the seller for an exchange?

I just ordered one too. I was on the fence whether a diffuser would look good on my car or not; this is a cheaper gamble than a real Vorsteiner piece.

you're kidding, right? It's a knock off that's about 80% cheaper than original... what do you think they'll do?
