I'd go with the BMW front splitter and rear spoiler. BTW you can order the parts through your local dealer like I did. Just gave them the part number for the rear spoiler and it should be on its way and here this Saturday.

exactly my thought, is i couldn't tell if it were the BMW part or vorsteiner, i can't see the middle extension under the middle intake.

looks good nonetheless.

Can you tell me what the parts numbers are so i can go ahead and order them from my dealer? thanks bro!

i guess I'll stick to the BMW parts, but I'll get the Vorsteiner rear diffuser to complement the look.

Now I have a handful of parts to sell off at some loss because I don't care to actually put them on my car. In the case of the lip, I was convinced that the m3 only looked "right" when they had a front lip on them. However, after owning the car for a few weeks and looking at it a lot, I think the lips look tacked on and don't fit the overall refined look of the M3. To each their own though!
i see your point, i like the ZCP lip because it's a minor mod, it doesn't scream look at me like after market mods. so i'll stick to BMW parts.

I'm still debating the rear diffuser though.

Just wait till someone then rips Vorsteiner off.... they will be so pissed and there will be a ton of threads on this forum about it again. just like when the replica lips came out.

Vorsteiner guarantees fitment or your money back on all of their products. Fitment issues are rare but they do happen from time to time. In which case VRSTR either sends you out a new part or a refund.

Are you sure it was Authentic Vorsteiner? Replica VRSTR stuff rarely ever fits properly.

You definitely right about that. Vorsteiner has a great marketing team, but the parts are not innovative. Look at the Porsche line up, a complete rip from the techart stuff.

Here you go bro:

Part number: 5162 2159805, Rear spoiler, Carbon. No idea about the front splitter though but I'm sure that you can do a search and find out the part number for that.

True - They stand behind their product.

has anyone installed the vorsteiner type rear diffuser yet? the guys from IND say it fits if it's take to a professional body shop and use BMWs adhesive instead of the one provided by vorsteiner. besides the adhesive, is there any screwing or drilling down to the rear spoiler?

I believe it utilizes 3M double sided tape or Betalink adhesive only, no drilling is required for the diffuser or the rear spoiler.

Those VRS Type IIs actually look better than ZCPs imo. Actually, Im in the process of painting the middle section of my VRS lip to create a splitter look.

If your car is white either will look great because of the contrast. In other colors it's a harder choice.
