Vorsteiner GTS3 or GTS5. The ability to replace the CF lip when (not if) it breaks is what sold me on mine. I've had to replace my lip three times now.

Wow that really sucks!

Seeing that you like to change it up Felix I would definitely say something other than a new front kit. ^^^ for just the reason Rapture said... you crack it, you basically have to buy a replacement.

BMW GTS would look amazing on your car or whoever makes the rep version. But as with all your lips, its going to sit really low.

Where do you buy the replacement lips? and how much do they cost?

You can get the replacement lip from any vendor that carries Vorsteiner

They cost about $700 depending where you get them.

Call me crazy but Im one of the selective few around here that dont quite feel the GTS5 front.....

GTS3 on the other hand is much cleaner and flows better with the overall OEM design

This is the exact reason why I refuse to pay absurd prices for something that will get destroyed easily. However, I will say I do like the Mode lip.

Well BMW just cracked my 3rd challange cf lip. Wasn't sure if I should purchase a 4th from them so I decided to try a different route. I am currently waiting on the Platte Forme a.g. Cf front lip. I am pretty excited and will post pics when I receive it in the next couple days. Also have some goodies coming from IND..I think this is going to be the last lip I purchase, the cost is adding up.
