they look good in CF dont paint them
Quality looks great, and it would be a shame to cover up the CF... but they might look a whole lot better with paint...

I was also wondering if your car was dropped?

got mine installed tonight, but ran out of daylight to take photos.
they really turned out great though. the fitment is incredible. they almost feel like they simply "pop" into place.

there's a big meet tomorrow but it's supposed to rain all day so i doubt there will be any opportunity for photos in the sun, but we'll see what happens. either way, i'll get some shots up to give everyone an idea of how they look on space grey.

i'm biased because i own them, but i think they give the car's front end a fresh look from what's available in the market currently. some people will love them, and others will hate them. but then again, i didn't like any of the 30+ lips that are out there right now enough to buy one until i saw these splitters.

Too bad about the daylight...looking forward to seeing those pics!

They would look much better on a black car.

I agree with the OP, they might look better painted. Especially on a white M3. What looks weird, is how they go up into the air duct. Same reason why the 3F splitter looks bad.

They are perfect. I would not paint them. It make the bumper look much more agressive and reminds me the M3 GT2 bumper.

dropped on a set of Eibach springs. But now I'm considering coil overs since these splitters leave room for a more aggressive drop. However I won't slam the car, I don't like that look nor do I want any issues driving where ever I want.

I normally hate splitters but these make the ducts in the bumper look aggressive! I think I will get some for my AW
I have gone White kidney grills, do you think it will suite?

I think it will look okay with the white grills, though I think it wil look better with matte or gloss black grills.

I'm going to pick up a pair ss well, though I have a clearbra, should I remove it or could I just intall them right over the film?

Wow looks great! I reckon cf mirror caps would complement those splitters.

sorry everyone. i had planned on getting some decent shots today, but since it was pissing rain this morning, my car got filthy before i ever arrived at the meet. also it was mostly cloudy and dark. i will get decent shots once we get a break in the weather. for now, here's one token shot taken at a distance since that seems to be type of shot most of you are looking for. i'll get some close-up shots too since i think it's cool to see the detail and the fitment.

You could test fit them and see if you like the contrast. If you don't you can then take a decision to either paint the splitters to match or paint the grill in a matte finish.
