E9X Front Lip plus Splitters

Weekend was driving in Chicago and saw an E92 AW with front lip and Splitters, Saw split of second, could not take any pictures but was looking good.
Any body else seen the combination together ( lip and splitters together)like in attached pictures?
Please share your opinions and pictures ...

No, but it's a nice setup, combining the M performance and CRT lips!
I'm thinking about doing this? Or just get the GTS.

Funny they stamped my pic of my car. Cheats. I added the CRT style splitter from Autotecknic cos I got bored of just the splitters, a friend of mine kindly somehow ripped it off driving my car, then I changed my entire front bumper. I've kind of moved on and not really a fan of it now like I was. I still like it but it got mixed feedback.

I did...

After running a Euro bumper with molded splitters for a while I decided to add and mold-in a CRT lip to create a unique look.

I think the splitters plus lip looks a little wonky. Get a bigger lip or the oem splitters, but why combine?

Why not? That's one of the fundamentals of modding cars in my opinion.

Sometimes people just mod for the sake of modding, to be different. It's all preference and subjective, though, I guess. To me, the lip and splitter looks silly. It's not clean and classy and comes off as corny and overdone. Modding just for the sake of modding usually ends up bad.

There are larger full width splitters/lips that look nice. Why combine 2 totally different products?

Yeah, why do something different? Everyone should stick to the plan;

1. Snap on factory splitters

2. Install Angel Eyes

3. Snap in body-colored reflectors.

4. Stop- You are now modded,

5. Go on M3post and talk about how modded you are.

I've thought about doing this. Either the splitters by themselves, or the lip by itself (especially) look weird, but together they look like they complete one another, if that makes sense? I'm just not sure if I want to go all out with tons of carbon fiber, but I've thought about doing the whole package (front lip, side skirts, diffuser and rear wing). Still up in the air about it

I kinda like the side splitters and the crt lip, but don't like the way they flow combined. The gts lip is definitely the best in my opinion. It just looks right.

I like how the 3 pieces look together but wonder if that is how BMW engineers intended they be used. I would find it interesting to understand how they perform together in a wind tunnel.

Not that any drivers in the US are regularly cruising at highway speeds where it would matter. If the combination of the splitters and CRT lip negatively influence the effectiveness of the other component I would prefer not to install both.

Way too busy, IMO. Pick one or the other.
