Newly installed M performance front splitter on Estoril Blue

Got this lip online for $135 shipped and it fits pretty well. Got it painted at a friend's shop and finally installed yesterday:









Car needs to be lowered a little bit. I kinda want to do lowering springs but I'm afraid the ride quality will suffer so I am thinking about holding off and getting coilovers or a shock/spring setup

That's a nice rep lip, better than most I've seen. Generally the center post sits further back.

Are you able to share a sale link?

Looks great!!
As for lowering your car, I'd be wary now that you have that front lip... But I guess that depends on where you live.. I recently installed one on mine (which looks to sit at the identical height yours does) and it lasted a week before I cracked it

Texas roads suck, and yes I was driving carefully, so be wary of lowering it!

Sorry, I haven't checked on this thread. Here is the link but ignore the bad reviews.. the people are dumb and did not secure the adapter that is inside the lip, to the lip itself lol. So basically the adapter stayed mounted to the car and the lip was not attached to anything and basically was just laying on top of it. There is a DIY thread on here explaining how to do it.

Looks great.
I had one similar but then the lower 3rd piece broke off on the highway.
Now I have this splitter http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1424513
