Non-Groupbuy will pay for the full price.
Thanks for the explanation, just runs counter to what I've normally experienced, where poly is much cheaper than CF. I like poly more personally, kinda sick and tired of CF overload, guess I could just paint the CF lip.

Not trying to be rude in any way, but I'm pretty sure everyone who has made a M3 lip has used an actual M3 bumper to make their lips, but that still never guaranteed fitment. If we could eventually get photos of the fitment of the first finalized products out, that would be great.

Lastly, I figured that non-group buy would pay for the full price, that's fairly clear to me. My question was, what is the non-group buy price? So, is it $850.00? $900.00? $1100?

Thanks in advance for your answers and efforts.

Thanks for trying to put this together....but umm no thanks.

That price is on par with every other lip available (i.e.: too expensive for a lip in my opinion). Never really understood why lips for our cars are so expensive.

I guess we have to pay to play; but I don't want to spend $4000 on the OEM GTS lip.

Wonder how much other brands cost?

Vorsteiner Front Lip: $1346
Arkym Front Lip: $749
Challenge Front Lip: $1395
3D Studie, Hamann, ACS, etc: cost over $1300

OP, you have to understand that this is a replica lip your guy is selling. Where is this company from? US? Asia? What kind of quality and fitment? The other lips you're comparing prices to are reputable companies that made they're own design and kits. In which their lips are replicated in Asia and sold by vendors such as JL Motoring in the price range of $300-500. To be honest that's the going price for replica lips. And I believe $4000 is the price for the GTR lip, not GTS

Here are the GTS and GT4 Lips compared. The GTS lip is PU, pretty heavy and not worth the money, the GT4 lip is a high end product and cost 2.890EUR as an OEM part. Due to the quality it is worth the money, but risk of damaging it is high.

yea but CF is CF

you're china made lip cost no more than the same ones made for any other car and because your target is this BMW demographic, you want to charge more because YOU CAN. But go ahead, Im sure some idiots will buy $150 lips for 10x the price.

+1!

Please show more side profile pics ken@exoticstuning!

Btw Checkcaptain,
Do you have pics of the GTS lip attached to an e90 or e92 m3? I know how it looks like on the orange GTS. I would really like to see the GTS lip on a different color m3.

Looks good to me and probably at a more reasonable price... so I hope...

I also like the fact that the lip follows through until the edge of the bumper...
