Carbon Fiber Front Lip Advice

Does anyone have this/know information about it. It looks like a steal for a carbon fiber lip and I am wondering how it will hold up. Especially in the snowy season.

Any one with pics, please post them!

It's a Vorsteiner knock off. Check the cosmetic/visual forum for info.

I wouldn't spend too much on a front lip, I guarantee you that it'll get banged up in no time, especially if you're lowered.

I'm lowered on Eibach and my front lip has zero scratches in it. Just drive carefully and go up and down entrances/driveways at extreme angles...use up all the lanes on the entrance/driveway!

I have a rep. and it fits nicely.

I'm one of those who do not believe in spending big money on front lips as I treat them as consumable items. Carbon bonnets, trunks, etc I believe in getting genuine without hesitation.

However there is nothing wrong with genuine. If you feel the price is justifiable and that you have the discipline to drive with care 24/7, genuine would be a better option.

I have the OEM CF Splitters... I like them a lot, they go with the white and the CF Roof nicely. They are a bit pricey though, so I am very careful all the time...

I think a lot of the lips look really good, but like mentioned above, if you're not usually careful about how you drive (especially park), then you either need to get careful or buy a cheaper knock off so it's not a big deal when you scratch it up.

The CF V Style Front Lip is an excellent addition to your E9X M3. It is fully carbon fiber and guarantees a perfect fitment every time. Here are some pictures for you to check out!

Where can I find some replica front lips? I'm not willing to spend $1k+ for a lip that I may accidentally chip/crack.

After market parts for these vehicle are so damn expensive.

many of the board sponsors sell replica lips (**********s being one), and I've seen quite a few on eBay

I personally am looking for a Fiberglass/ABS/Urethane Vorsteiner replica, since they don't make the real ones in anything but CF nowadays, but painting the one posted here might work just as well
