--> Just installed Ebay Lip, pleased with the results

I needed to cover some scratches on my bumper and also wanted to buy a lip we can say 2 birds with one stone.

i know you guys don't like cheaping out on the stuff you put on your cars but it will probably get trashed anyways, i was kind of nervous expecting a real bad fit

<EDIT> Ebay seller was http://www.ebay.com/usr/bmwoemshop

That's an interesting design, don't think I've seen that one before. Is it supposed to be modeled after any particular authentic spoiler?

I'm in a predicament, I could either spend close to $1000 on a lip and hate myself after I crack it, or spend $400 on a lip made by a talented dude in taiwan and crack it and feel half the pain.. hmm

Good call, I need to hide some scratches on the lower portion of the bumper (stupid v-shaped driveways and parking cement blocks) but NO WAY will I spend that much money on these lips. If the eBay fits fine, then great!

in for pics as well! OP, can you share the seller as well?

Well it's all well and good when it fits. I absolutely don't believe in dropping anywhere near $1000 on something I consider a consumable more or less. Especially us guys that are dropped.

Having said that, a part that doesn't fit pisses me off just as much as a damaged part. I've had pretty bad luck with rep parts, whereas my buddy ordered exactly the same splitters and his fit perfectly.

Gotta see it from further away on the car but so far it looks pretty damn good. Looks like it need to be lifted up just a bit but not bad at all. I'm all about the eBay lips. Too much risk to spend a lot of money.

Idk if I could commit to it design wise but it looks damn good. What was the price?

I heard ARKYM fits better than most??

By the way OP that looks great, at least you don't look like everyone else with those tacky fangs/BMW lips. I know there OEM but honestly they don't add anything.

I've been searching for a one-piece lip for months. Looks like the search continues.

This is a decent piece. Fitment on the outside corner is suspect. I don't like the angle of the piece in general.

That said, if you like it, rock it. I have the same car, minus two doors. Can't hate on Space Gray.

Get the Edition Grills asap!
