F30 335i Non-M-sport front lip Options

This is my first time posting, but I lurk on here all the time. Just wanted to share my ride with different front lips for all of the Non M-Sports running around.

I came from a 11' 135 M-sport and didn't realize I didn't have the M-sport until a couple days after I bought my 335i (was excited about the car) I will eventually do the retro fit with the Selma kit. For now I'm happy with the looks.

Here is the first lip I started with: $150 on eBay. I didn't paint it or anything. I liked the flat black color with the Mineral Grey


It held up pretty well considering i only used double sided tape on the entire thing. Right after this picture was taken it ripped off due to 6 inched of snow on the streets. Didn't damage the OEM bumper.




After contemplating the retro fit of the M-Sport, I decided to wait and just do another cheap eBay lip. This one is a different style. I like it so far. I ended up attaching this one with a combination of double sided tape and screws.




If anyone is interested in the first lip style let me know. I have brand new extra sitting in my garage.

Cheers.

hmm, one of the few 'nontraditional' setups that I like.
1. i think you can just keep your bumper as-is and not upgrade to selma because its different, and it goes well with your scheme. your car stands out from others, in a good way.
2. those yellow foglignts are something i wouldnt be a fan of, but again, the mineral gray makes it look like a 'rugged' car, not your typical f30. actually looks nice and different.

thanks for sharing, i think you should keep your car as-is, it looks solid.

Yeah I'm not a fan of upgrading to the m sport just to be another m sport model. I'm happy with my sport line

Thanks for the compliment. The more and more I add person touches to the exterior the more I like the look of the non-sport lip. The retro cost can be spent on upgrading the brakes. Cheers!

Thanks. It was painted and wrapped in 3m clear film, and installed by me. I originally wanted the lip in your first photo but I'm glad I went with mine, it's just a cleaner look and looks like an original part of the car. I'm excited to finally getting my car lowered in a few days

2nd setup looks amazing. That is the lip I've been wanting to get in CF to go on my Alpine White Sport.

Do you guys have links? I can't find those lips that fit the sport line... only the base line.

I have a set in my garage that I've been looking at for over a year. I need to just pull the trigger and throw them on.

Looks Awesome!!

Car looks dope. Glad to see others with the lips. I only see the m-sport front ends or the base or sports without and mods.
