Status Gruppe E9X M3 (E90/E92/E93) Front lip spoiler

We at Status Gruppe are all about following the market and offering products that not only look and function well but will not break the bank! We have looked at all the 2008-2013 BMW M3 front bumper lips currently on the market and have taken parts we like from them all and put them together in our own front lip that fits perfect and does not protrude too far causing pre mature damage. We styled our "CSL Style Lip" to mimic the look of the 1 piece lip available for CSL style front bumper covers. Unlike other front lips on the market our lip will also fit Replica M3 front Bumpers. Made in the USA

Available Carbon Weaves Patterns:


Studio shots:




Mounted pics:








*Please note these CSL front lips are made to order and build time takes about 2-3 weeks after placing order.*

Link to order!

Thanks Status for making another lip available for the E9X platform. I actually like this a lot and considering the clearance taken on the design of the lip really appeals to me.

Really? I thought it was super competitive compared to other carbon lip solutions out there.

I am running a Mode Carbon GTS V1 and if that one meets its maker I will be replacing it with one of these.

the new AM replica Mode lip fits just as good as the Mode lip, and its less than half the price... lets be real, these lips are consumables.

This is actually one of the more aesthetically appealing lips out there in my opinion. I just can't justify spending that type of money on something that bound to become damaged.

That said, kudos SG you created one good looking lip!

AIT Makes the bumpers exclusively for us. call them and ask. We put tons of time and money to make them actually fit and modify the molds.

Like it states at the top "We have looked at all the 2008-2013 BMW M3 front bumper lips currently on the market and have taken parts we like from them all and put them together in our own front lip that fits perfect and does not protrude too far causing pre mature damage."

we have seen lips like what we wanted to make but nothing that really fit the look all around. VCSL GTS style and CSL 1 piece for the E46 m3 were the inspiration.

Below are some pics of the process of this lip (2016). I will also take pics of the Mold with proof its in the USA.








Here is the plug part test mounted in January of this year. you can clearly see the lip is different especially in the center of the bumper. ours was designed to not stick out.

Status Gruppe has been around the industry for quite some time now. All the guys over there are a class act and are constantly try to continue bringing parts out for new and old chassis. From a vendor standpoint as well as before I was working for ACM, I have always had great experiences with their products and customer service.

Great looking front lip, Would love to get a few of these on some cars here!!!

lol come on guys. Status gruppe has been around for a while not your pop up shop.

Sure it looks similar to that chinese one but admittedly there are only so many designs you can invent for this platform. It's similar but you can tell the differences.

$700 made in USA. Mode Carbon is $900.

AM and all the other replica companies are cheaper for many reasons (fitment, quality, made overseas etc). Not knocking on them because everyone has their priorities but just compare apples to apples.

We tried to make this the lip with the most available clearance. the above car the owner hits everything and has actually tried to scrape and has not yet.

i have nothing against these companies so i have no reason to continue bashing, i was just stating for a fact that this design already exists, if they did in fact develop and manufacture in USA then good for them
as for mode carbon, i know who supplies them, but again i have no reason to bash them, so i will stop there

I hope there's a polyurethane version of this in the works. I had your poly lip for my old F80, that was a great front lip.
