Does Anyone Make Polyurethane Front Lips for M3??

I know with the Porsche 997 there was a company making front lips made of polyurethane which was pliable but it looked like a regular front lip esp in black.

I think vorsteiner stopped making their poly lips.

I hear Challenge will be coming out with a poly version of their front lip very soon.

Would be interested in this too....something that can take a scrape now and again without cracking or clearcoat coming off.

I really wish VRS would bring the poly lip back.

Challenge from what I heard will be FRP not poly.

Don't think anyone would make a poly lip. That thing would last forever. Companies would lose out on replacement CF lips...

I was surprised that i couldn't find anyone making poly lips anymore, plenty of carbon or fiberglass but nothing as durable as poly.

i agree, i left my poly lip unpainted and it looks great. doesnt have any rock chips whatsoever, looks like its brand new even though its been on my car for 2 years.

There are a bunch of Subaru shops making poly lips. Mach V motorsports does 135/335i parts now... wonder if they'd be interested in making a Poly lip for our cars...

Maybe approach Dan at their big meet on July 30th. He could probably use one of our cars to get a template.
