IMO, I think the Hamann takes away the sweet aggressive front end.

+1 I think the VRS Lip flows better with the front end of the car, the Hamann seems a bit busy.

Talking

Okay venders take it easy on the Hamann I don't think the Hamann front lip is to busy its just right. Now as for the VRS its pretty simple looking and it looks okay and way better than ACS lip So Aznrr what do you think now that you have both picks in front of you. Oh and if your are looking to save a good $1000.00 on either one you can always buy the CF replica of both of them off of E-bay for about $300.00 they look and fit the same


Good luck on your pick

Oh and here are a few more pics just in case make sure you let us know what you finally decide to pick.


Hamann FTW

I say the VRS one definately. I goes with the lines of the already somewhat aggressive front bumper. The Hamann lip hides it.

Hamann only on a black M3. It blends in more with the darker color.

Anything else, VRS.

Have you look into 3D and ACS front lip? They are much better looking IMO.

Check this link out. It's a E90 M3 SSII with VRS front lip. You can get a general idea in regards to color contrast.

I like both honestly, but i think the hamann works best on darker cars. It looks absolutely SICK on the black M3 pictured above.

Personally, I went with the vorsteiner lip (both CF & poly) because i think it suits the car really well - and I was very pleased with the CF lip on my (now DD and de-modded) 335. Plus, for the price of the poly lip, it's hard to find a better bargain IMO. Either way both pieces, the Hamann and VRS, are top notch quality.

Shoot me a PM if you need anything

I agree, on a black M3 it looks so menacing. VRS or ACS lip looks better on lighter toned cars.
