Aftermarket replica lips?

Hey guys, just got an E90 m3 and want to get a lip for it. Unfortunately, they seem pretty expensive, like the vorsteiner, which is around 1300 dollars. Do you guys know if there are any replicas available for the car or in the near future?

Replicas that I have seen in the past never seem to fit good. Just go the extra mile and get the real deal. Hell, you did just spend 70k on a car.

There always seems to be replicas for just about anything but who knows how good they will fit and how good will look. I would wait for a little bit maybe the original will be cheaper later.

I had a replica $500 cf/painted ACS front lip (e46 M3) & it had no issues whatsoever. FWIW, the real deal version was ~$2k at that time. In fact, I was at a local M3 meet few yrs ago & another owner had the real deal. We both couldn't tell difference when our cars were right next to each other. Then again, I've seen replica's that look like crap as well.

If I was looking for a replica front lip (probably will eventually) then I'd wait for others to be the lab rat to see what they say regarding quality & fitment.
