I agree, would love to see a disposable-quality lip in these shapes that could be replaced or refinished readily each time it is curbed. I have bottomed out on public streets at the posted speed on stock suspension with no lip.

Challenge lip in cheap plastic please!

If there was something available along the lines of a GT3 RS type lip (from the perspective of flexible) would be ideal!

You probably will not notice any difference with a lip. The only difference will probably be ground clearance. You may scrape the lip over some bumps or dips.

The BMW OEM Competition splitters seem to be the least susceptible to scraping. However, I understand that the CF weave on these splitters does NOT match the CF roof.

I believe the roof has a 1x1 weave and the OEM splitters have a 2x2 weave. Is this correct? If so, WTF BMW!!!

Great job on putting these together and thanks. I'm excited to get mine on and I'm currently looking for help with DIY. There are so many good looking ones.

So right about now, I am undecided between the Luma, 3d Design, and Arkym. All are bout the same, except the Arkym covers a little less of the OEN lip. It may come down to price and availability. If any vendors out there want to let me know, please feel free to PM me. All I've seen so far is the Arkym at PySpeed for $749.

which are you leaning towards? i think certain lips look better depending on what sort of ride height you're looking to achieve.
