Lips in the north

I've been debating getting a front lip for my car, however I am nervous because my car is a DD and I live in Wisco. Are there any other northern M3 DD owners that have lips on their car? If so, how do they hold up in the winter with snow and stuff?? Typically, how much lower does it make the front end, a cm or so?

You could always rent your car out as a snowplow...

I'm lowered on dinan springs and a lip would last me a few days in the winter. Every piece of ice that fell from somebody's wheel well would potentially be the end of it.

If you guys get lake effect snow anything like Superior, I'd say skip it.

You can mess around with all the cheap and expensive lips out there, or you can do it right once and just simply get the best motorsport front lip-plow there is out there and be done with it.

Depends on the lip but much more than a cm. Some will be couple inches.

I'd suggest checking out the Challenge Urethane ST Front Spoiler. Not as aggressive as their spoiler GT Carbon Spoiler, has incredible flex and is very durable.

I have a lip in Chicago. No worries here, just remember that you have a lip at the beginning or it may end bad, regardless of winter or summer.
