▀▄ eas - Challenge USA e9X M3 GT Full Carbon Front Lip Spoiler Photos

Its refreshing when you see quality parts manufactured for our M3s. So much that we wanted to show off some pictures of the Challenge GT Carbon Front Lip Spoiler that just arrived, the quality & packing is some of the best we've seen to date when it comes to aesthetics.





3M tape has already been preapplied and is ready for installation right out of the box. Weighing in at only 2lbs, the spoiler is easily installed using OEM mounting locations with no drilling or modifications required.

Challenge specializes in making aftermarket parts for those require only the best for their BMW. In terms of quality, fitment and performance, Challenge's GT Carbon Front Lip spoiler is simply unmatched. Taking inspiration from BMW's M3 GTS, the Challenge lip spoiler is designed to be a functional piece while adding a more aggressive look to the car. The aerodynamically tested lip increases front end downforce, enabling better high speed stability and handling.

Unlike most other carbon offerings which are manufactured overseas, Challenge's 100% full carbon fiber lip spoiler is made in Challenge's facility that also manufactures carbon fiber parts for IndyCar, Lemans, Speed World Challenge and the Rolex Series race cars right here in the US. When making parts for race cars only the absolute highest quality materials and manufacturing techniques are used, and Challenge delivers the same standard of quality when making parts for the street.









This particular lip was here for a matter of only a few hours, and will be going on Howard Kendrick's (of Los Angeles Angels fame) e90 M3 tomorrow.

Thanks to the guys at Challenge for providing a top notch product, setting the bar when it comes to Carbon Fibre aesthetics.

The new Challenge piece was installed on Friday on Howie's e90 M3, with a few other items for good measure. Fit and finish of the front spoiler rivals that of OEM BMW - the Challenge pieces are top notch quality.

M3 being raised in position for existing spoiler removal


Old Vorsteiner front lip being removed


Residue removal/surface prepping for new Challenge Lip installation, removing all trapped wax buildup


Positioning Challenge Spoiler into place


Alternate angle, showing spoiler edges mating with OEM front bumper cover


Fastening Challenge Bumper into place using stock BMW bolts, not securing into place yet


Removing 3M tape and pressing into place, fastening bolts down for additional stability


Completed installation


Completed installation - alternate angle


Underside shot of Challenge Lip - showing Carbon Fibre construction


Completed install - outside shots








The newly finished M3 was then picked up by Howie late afternoon on his way to batting practice. Needless to say, he was very impressed with the new look and will be returning for more mods very soon.
