Why not just get a cheaper rep? Lowered cars and expensive pieces of carbon fiber 2 inches above the ground never last that long. Its too risky when you actually drive your car.

FYI, my $220 CF replica splitters have been on the car since July and I can't really complain.

Vorsteiner GTS3. Not a fan of the GTS5. I'd also say the Mode Carbon lip is a really nice looking piece.

My car was at BMW for service and was damaged while it was there.

The Mode Carbon Variant 1 Gts Spoiler would be perfect for the look you are going with.

I've cracked my challenge lip 3 times already. I got so sick of bottoming out that i shortened down the lip to allow for more clearance. Attached is a before and after pic. I think i may have shaved it down too much, but it works for me. Just something to consider (if you still have your challenge lip).
