BMW GTS Front Spoiler - Review / Installation Pics

After installing to OEM BMW M3 GTS Spoilers I decided it would be a good idea to put some pics and write a small review of this great product!

Quality - This is very high quality product. This is not just a front lip that BMW designed for GTS M3. Every piece that comes with GTS lip has a purpose and fits the car like any other OEM part. The front spoiler and lower splitter are made from a very stiff and thick material which makes this part very functional in creating a downforce - the purpose of this part.

Fitment - GTS front spoiler comes with installation guide which is very useful. All the hardware is there and all parts fit perfectly. Rivets, bolts, templates - everything is included. All parts fit perfectly and are super sturdy to support the lip and lower spoiler.

Functionality - The best part about this piece is that it's very functional. The lower splitter can be pushed in or pulled out depending on how much downforce you are trying to get. It also can be completely removed for street driving if your car is set low.

GTS Front Lip Kit






Provided Left/Right aluminum brakets that are supporting the lower aluminum beam.







Center Support



Lower Splitter



Pre-cut bumper to clear brakets









Upper part installed - covers all brakets



Slots in the lower splitter for adjustability



Installed



Thank you,
Aleks.

The part number won't show in any BMW catalogs so it's useless to have since you won't be able to order it using part #

If you would like to get one please let us know.

With the splitter all the way in they are blocked but once you pull it out for more downforce (assuming you are at the track) it will open up a bit.

Is it doable/mountable without the lower splitter - just the top piece?

How sturdy is the center section as the support is a cable instead of bar? Seems like there maybe some flex?

Either way it looks like a very nice piece. Any idea what it is made out of?

it's solid as a rock! No cables ... all solid pieces ... you can step on it if you want

I think it's made from some type of plastic, maybe polyU
