they look good unpainted...you should also look into the CF spoiler to pull the whole look together

if you look carefully, you'll see that my mirrors are 2-tone. they are actually custom painted CF mirror replacements. IND painted the top part space grey and left a section underneath as exposed CF. they look wicked.

if you promise not to laugh because my car is filthy, here are two additional shots. i didn't take them - they were from others who attended the meet yesterday...

you can also see the custom painted space grey and CF mirror replacements that IND made for me.

Dude, that looks awesome. I'm leaning toward these now.

And I love what you did with the mirrors. I might have to steal the idea one of these days

i like how they look on the silver car. Too much contrast for me on the AW car. Makes then stand out too much and seem out of place. Maybe paint the top AW and leave the actual splitter portion unpainted?

I think they look awesome, typical BMW, subtle and classy. For sure its a small change but on the road driving I bet they look awesome. Someone with them needs to get some rolling shots, and I am sure you would all like to see i front/head on shot from low down to see how much lower (if any) they make the front clearance. If someone could take a shot head on, about mid front bumper in height i think that would be interesting. I am torn between these and Luma Lip

The glue that you use for this, is it the same as what they use to glue the stock lip on the trunk? I just want to know if you can remove it or is it going to mess up the paint. And can we get the GTS lip? just curious

Nope, the stock lip spoiler is attached with 3M tape!

How much lower do they go than the plastic rub insert under the OEM front spoiler? Do the splitters rub first? Anyone install them with H&Rs?

I love them but I don't want to buy and install (already have H&R sport springs) just to tear them apart on the gigantic speed humps they installed around my housing complex.
