APR Front Splitter

Happy new year everyone,

So I was cruising the interwebs and the threads to try to see if if you could just get a simple flat-panel splitter. From what I gather the only way to do that would be to have someone "custom" make it for you as some of the forum members have done. Then I crusied over to Vivid's site because I remember they had one. The name says it is a APR CF front splittter for the E92 M3. Here is the link :
http://www.vividracing.com/catalog/i...-p-133691.html

Now I guess my question is does anyone have this piece or know of anyone that has it? It is exactly what I would like but I am getting the feeling that it might be a typo on the site or something because no one else has mentioned it in the tons of threads that I have read through, nor are there any pictures on google aside from the one from the site.

Anyways if anyone has any input or any useful feedback please let me know.

I also found this which looks like what I am talking about, but I guess theirs was completely custom.

Also M-World has one but I don't think you can buy that one, as it is not advertised on their website.

I bought one used here on the site a month or so ago. It is an APR splitter but it has the same cut as the one in the second link. I'm not sure if it's custom or not but you could look up the thread and PM the original owner. Here it is on my track bumper and lip:



You can see that it doesn't extend back to the end of the lip/bumper. That's because it's cut for the stock bumper and is meant to sit much further back.

OP call APR directly, they'll make you one brand new for $ 375 w/ struts. You want the one similar to Paul walkers Race M3 as it is smooth across the front. they make another style like the ones pictured here but those are more oriented to reg 3 series and m-tech bumpers curves. If anything they'll tell you to trace out the outline and mail it to them and they'll make it custom. They're good guys over there, just call them and tell em what you're doing.

Okay, so I had to Google Pual Walker's M3 and thats pretty much what I want, I guess I'll just shoot APR an email and maybe they will make me one one. Im going to ask them to make it slightly shorter though so it stays a little closer to the bumper. Thank You guys for your help.
