Day time pics with better lighting and a better camera would be nice.

Just curious how the hell can you come out and say or evaluate that it looks cheap by looking at a poor cell phone pic? Especially the emblem. give it a fair chance when you see a better photo of it then judge it accordingly, until then stop being a dick...

It doesn't matter it's a good effort to try something new. Post up a better pic so we can really have a better idea of how it looks. After all we all love something that works well for little dollars

I'd still like to see a quality photo. But if it was me I'd still also opt for the lip because it adds such an aggressive look that I love.

The plastidip looks amazing! I'm going to do the same thing next weekend! I have the sideskirt already, so I want to add some more matte black to the front and back to balance it out. Anyone try plastidipping the rear gray splitter on the F30? I'm not what that will look like though.

like most plstidip jobs, it looks like a diy. things like these make the car look older than it actually is.

if you really don't want a an m-performance, but you want to imitate the look without scraping issues, go with one of these:

How's the fitment? Also, I just don't want to make any holes in my bumper. Are these completely securable with 3M?

I've never bought it and I'm not the vendor, so i have no idea

I'm just saying, this kind of product will look less dodgy than plastidip spray
