E93 Front Lip

Everyone - I was looking for a front lip for my 2011 Conv and came across this. I saw some others that I really liked but they were all around $800-$1K so the price attracted me the most. I was woundering if anyone had any experance with this company or prodcut?

Replica lips usually have pretty bad fitment, WSTO carry the Authentic 3D Design Lip FYI, just check out their thread

I have this replica lip on my 2011 E93 from a different company. Fitment not the greatest, but I made it work. Hardest part is the there are no precut holes for the bolt location and had to do some trial and error to get it to line up right. I love the look of the lip but don't want to spend $$ for the 3d lip. THe roads here suck and know it's only a matter of time before I'm going to need a new one.

Both schools of thought right there...

On the one hand, you get what you pay for. On the other, it's a front lip that will eventually hit something. I had the same decision to make and concluded that I wanted to spend the money on an authentic one.

we have seen a lot of these replica lips and the only good thing about them is the fact that they are cheap. They don't have the evenly laid weave pattern and with yellowing of the resin, it quickly becomes an unsightly thing. fitment is of course another hurdle to go through on replicas.
