I've read people getting the msport lip from advanation and the fitment not being great. How about any of the other sellers? Selma is very good but they do not sell the front lip anymore. Anyone purchase one recently off ebay for $100?

I got mine from supernation on eBay. Fits pretty good, especially for it being a $100 lip. When you get up really close you can tell fitment is a little off but not very noticeable.

Does anyone make a replica of this $100 lip and sell it cheaper? I wanna pick one up, but $100 is pretty steep for a piece of plastic...

You can get the plastic pop rivets from the dealer i would assume. You only need two. The center is held on by standard screws with a C-clip.

3m tape the splitter sections and screw in the lip section on the ends. If you look at the corner of the lip there are screw holes, I would bet it lines up with a bolt already on the bumper. That has been my experience dealing with lips for my e90

This would be my guess also, as my e90 was like that too.

I came across this seller on ebay. ikonmotoring.

I'm looking at the 3d style front lip. Does anyone have experience with this seller?

they have a bunch of other lips that may be what you're looking for as well.

They do make the same front lip, but it is twice the money. From what I hear it fits good, give it a shot

No those two holes are pop rivets and not existing bolts or screws.

What if the person is leasing the car? I hate it when people say these kinds of things about people who have expensive cars. If the car is 50k doesn't mean that we have to be ok with spending more than $100-$200 for parts, especially when the person is leasing the car which makes it a $30k car.

When you say a little off, do you mean that it has those 1/4"-1/2" gaps at the ends?

I think the ones from Advanation have this gap ...
