Finally installed a lip and diffuser

Having run out of mods for my M3, I felt a lip and diffuser were the only things remaining to set my machine apart from the rest. I wanted to share with the community. I decided to go with Polyurethane instead of CF and paint them to match the car. I find that CF only works on white cars.

I welcome all compliments and tasteful criticism.

Where did you get the polyurethane lip? I was thinking of doing the same thing since I have a black car as well.

I just got bored and wanted to do something different. CF doesn't work in dark cars. Looks amazing on white, but awful in black.

Ebay. Just search M3 front lip and diffuser. I believe the seller was called xcess motors. You can also try the vendors here but majority of them only carry CF and they are quite expensive.

Many of the sponsors/vendors here sell them. Just be prepared to pay!

set yourself apart huh? the blower didnt do it enough? lol youre already amongst an elite crowd there but it looks nice, im not a fan of cf on darker cars anyway having bought mine with my cf splitters and diffuser on it already. i was thinking of doing the same on my front splitters bc of all the rocks that get kicked up that are starting to damage them as they are starting to fray. anyway it looks nice, keep up the unique look man

Knew it was Ebay...Seems to be the only place to buy a poly lip as every vendor here would rather sell you a FRP or Carbon one to smash up and then have to buy more

I got my poly 3d rep from Ebay also and fitment is perfect. Price was almost too good to be true considering it wasn't folded in half and shipped from California in a big box.

+1 on ebay. But stay away from the China stuff.

The US vendors are much better and if there is a problem, its easier to deal with.
