I don't have a M sport, but M performance. I think BMW's designers have done a pretty good job there. The aftermarket ones don't grab me. Will be interesting to know the price.

I love the Varis one as well

Some might call it ricey but I reckon it's a good balance of class & looking tough!

Msport is nice and subtle... but almost too subtle?

Front Lip for Sport Line bumpers

Sorry to raise an old thread, there are a few kits available now since this thread was last posted, I just purchased a 328 in Sportline trim (M-Performance kit not available here unfortunately). I have been searching for a front lip, and found a few, the ones I like are

LT-Motorsport.


3D Design is also nice,


JMS Racelook


3D Design was one of the first to have a lip for F30, but now I thought it looks a bit plain, I prefer a bit of black insert at the bottom.

The prices of LT-Motorsport and 3D Design sort of killed the idea of getting a lip, I got quoted at US$1000+ for the lip, it is actually more than if i was to get the M-Performace bumper, it is not logical in my view.

also the JMS Racelook lip seems to be made of fibreglass, and I am a bit weary of fibreglass kits.

What do you guys think??

3D is the pick for me if I had to choose, however I like the Sport line front end better than any other I've seen yet, including the M-sport.

Close call for the M-Performance and Varis, but the Carbon Fibre gets the nod from me. However, the sills on the M-Performance are very nice indeed.

I think LT Motorsport did very cool work.

But it can be more nice together with M Sport Bumper!

Been looking at the Varis for some time now because I definitely prefer it but agree the price has delayed me making a decision on it. Bit expensive. But if you can do a good deal Stu will be interested to know.

BMW Australia's facebook page recently released a sport line specific lip for the F30s. I haven;'t had a chance to check how much it is yet but the facebook manager said it was going to be in stock before end of year.
