Front lip advice/feedback please

Has anyone gone with a lip similar to the one below? I'm not sure about anyone else but i feel like the outer parts to my bumper are lower than the center of my bumper so i would have to put something in between the middle of the lip to take up the gap. If you have any pictures of similar lips, please post pictures and anything you did to modify them further!

I was under the assumption it was for an m3 but I could be wrong
either way, here's another that says it woud work for an m3 but in a little bit different style. http://www.mod bargains.com/Kerscher...E92-BMW-M3.htm you might have to go the the link and take out the "%20" in between the mod and bargains though in url because the link doesnt want to work.

The first one looks like it is for the non M e9x.

I have never seen a Kerscher front lip on a M3. They are made for the m-tech bumper.

That lip is wronly listed in the m3 section...

I wouldn't mind seeing more front lip options like this tho. Just something small that stays under the bumper.

I think that i'm going to take my chances on one of them after i take some measurments and see if I can get it to work. I'm not really a fan of any of the other styles of lips for the m3's. Is there any other subtle small lips like this that you know of possibly?

Yeah I was thinking the same about fitting a Kerscher front lip. It all depends if an m3 bumper is the same width as a standard 3 series at the very bottom.

I'm in the same boat... A lot of the m3 lips are way to obvious and in your face. The only one I like is the challenge lip. It doesn't cover any of the bumper but instead fills the spaces in between.
Even then, it sticks out a good amount past the front.

yeah that's the only one that I even remotely like too. I'll end up doing it soon and i'll let you know how it turns out! This one is a 335i but it has an m3 bumper and it looked like it turned out fine. https://www.google.com/search?q=m3+f...sgUuhU-OhTM%3A

I saw that before. Atleast we know it looks good lol. But that's a replica bumper made for 328 & 335i so it all depends if a real m3 is any wider.

I had a chance to measure my m3 bumper back to back with a standard e90 335i. At the very bottom, end to end, the m3 bumper is 3" inches wider then the 335i bumper.

So for that Kerscher lip, it may look weird if it's 1.5" too short on either side.
Or maybe it won't... idk.
