Installed new "PLUS" piece to my R-GTS front lip

I've had the R-GTS lip for a while now and installed the "PLUS" piece they offer for it a few days ago.

I was kind of hesitant because I thought it would be too aggressive but ended up falling in love after it was installed. The R-GTS lip finishes where the red line is, the PLUS piece is the additional black piece under it.

Thanks

One of the things I've come to love about Revinora lips is the durability. I had a CF lip from them on my 2008 M3. I scrapped the shit out of that thing so many times, tracked the car with it, a friend of mine even dropped it when I took it off the car and nothing happened but scratches underneath it.

I'm not going to put anyone on blast here but so many of my friends have chipped, cracked or straight up broke their more expensive front lips because they are extremely thin OR don't have any real support under the lip like the Revinora stuff does.

I've seen someone break a Revinora splitter on one side of their car hitting a truck tire on the freeway but I've never once seen a chipped or broken full lip.

Even still, I'm clearing driveways decently if I take them at an angle but I have scraped a few times unfortunately. If my past experience is any indication, the Plus piece should take a beating like my past lips.

That does look cool, I see your mirrors have the same cover colour combination. How about the rear spoiler?

Can you take more pictures love to see it also what is the actual clearance to the ground on a straight street/parking surface? 3" or 4"

Be careful going up slight inclines Looks sharp well done

The funny thing is that this lip looks so much bigger in pics than in real life. I really like the way it flows with the car. I saw it the other night and it looked amazing.

Can't wait til the drop and wheels man.

Pics of fitment and look underneath would be nice to be seen. Looks great from all angles shown. how did you paint stripe? Is there limitation of what lip they are compatible with?

Thanks for all the comments and opinions guys. This is my second AW E92 M3 so switching up from the white/black/cf look was a must for me and so far I'm loving it. I'll try to get some more pics up, it's raining in LA right now so I can't get any decent shots.

It's aftermarket from Revinora.

I took a few quick pics trying to capture the clearance and fitment. Will post asap.

I didn't paint the stripe, Revinora offers the pinstripe option in any color i think but most ive seen in LA are the OEM color matching the car. I've seen an MR with MR stripe, AW with AW stripe, Gray with Gray stripe.

As for limitations, I don't know, you would have to talk to them about it.

Here are some close ups of the fitment and a shot underneath. The fit is like OEM, not a single gap. Ill take one more with a soda can or something in front of the car so you guys can get a good idea of the clearance.
