Lip Options (no modifications needed)

Hey guys I'm currently painfully waiting on the delivery of my M, so to keep myself occupied I'm creating my little mod list. I'm interested in getting a CF front lip but I will absolutely not drill any holes into the car (I don't mind drilling holes into the lip though). I've been searching the forum for different lips and I have only found that Arkym doesn't need any modifications to the car for installation. Are there any other options? Thanks in advance!

Challenge Lip FTW, top notch quality, using original bolt point, definitely the best lip out there on the market IMO

i know you hate the drilling part but i think it looks good i drilled a total of 6 screws 2 each side and 2 front.. it holds pretty firm...

since real BMW GTS front lip and the GT4 you need to drill like 12 screws the hold them in place i did the same to make sure its secure and firm...

Check out Vorsteiner's Carbon Fiber VRS Front Add On Spoiler. You will need to drill holes in the spoiler, but it is very easy to do. You just re-use the screws that are underneath the car, so no drilling in the car. Vorsteiner is the best in the industry when it comes to carbon fiber.

The Challenge Lip is the most popular choice from our customers, and does not require any drilling, just bolt-on with double-sided tape:

I'm dying to know everyone's obsession with NOT drilling a hole or two into the underside of the bumper. You spend a lot of time under there looking at the tiny screw holes left AFTER you remove the spoiler whenever that may be?

lol

Gotta agree with you guys on the Challenge pieces, the pieces are top quality and one of the few aero pieces we choose to carry.

Challenge GT3 Carbon Front Splitter w/ Brake Ducting:





Challenge GT3 Carbon Front Splitter w/ Brake Ducting/Undertray:









Due to low clearance, Undertray is removed for street driving.

Thx so much for all the input guys.. I guess I have 3 options to pick from now: Arkym (pyspeed, **********s), Challenge (IND, eas), and the Vorsteiner(jlevisw)

Do I have my vendors correct or which vendors do you guys recommend for the best prices? I live in Canada btw so I'll need a vendor that ships to Canada too.

You can't go wrong with WSTO, IND or EAS, just choose whoever you feel more comfortable dealing with or simply choose one that's close to you.
