Cf Vorsteiner front lip or new BMW Performance CF splitters?

Im leaning toward the splitters for my new AW coupe...i always wanted the Vort front lip though...my old 335i had the aerodynamic front bumper and i installed cf splitters on jet black..i though it looked ok...but back then the lip was what i wanted but now the new splitters on AW look very aggrersive i think...im having a hard time deciding which to install...anybody??

OEM > any Vorsteiner part any day (same goes for all aftermarket cosmetic parts in my opinion)

Although there's no doubt the OEM is better fit, I think the splitters look horrible on AW. Everyone I've seen, in pics only, have looked weird. On darker colors, they look good, but not on the AW, IMHO.

They are two different looks, what do you prefer? Complete front end or splitter style?

Darker color M3s look pretty good with OEM splitters but AW really doesn't pull its "look" well. In my personal opinion, even though I love OEM parts, Vorsteiner lip looks better on AW M3.

In my opinion that looks like a fat lip.... as if it got punched in the lip and it swelled up.
