Need a sportsline LIP.

Hey all, so im looking for a nice lip for my sportsline bumper as its a lease and i dont want to spend the money to do a M-sports conversion. (i should have just gotten a m-sport to begin with but i got this sportsline for a hell of a deal).

But im looking for a nice lip to add to the car to give it a more.. aggressive look. im not trying to go overboard on a lip but something nice.. i cant seem to find many out there.

EDIT: Was looking at this one
http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-15-BMW-F3...-/371239899255

says 2012-1015 i do not know why it would not fit the 2016? Thoughts?

I wouldn't let the color stop you. Or the fact that it only says 2012-15. If it fits 2015, it'll fit your 2016. They probably just never updated the post.

And look at it this way... if there was any color that you could have that didn't match 100% and was slightly off, it would be black. White, red, blue, grey, silver etc. would all be much more noticeable if you tried to color match the lip and it was slightly off. I'm sure it'll look fine.

Didnt think it was worth 500 for a lip.. seeing as a new m sport front would be like 1000.. would rather save for that.. i ended up getting the lip.. will install it this weekend.

I bought the RW Carbon Sport Line Front Lip which is probably the one you saw for $500. The fitment was straight garbage and it was a huge pain in the ass to install. Would definitely not recommend it to anyone.

I have some photos of it on my car in this thread:http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1348676

I am considering getting one from ebay for $119, polyurethane. Anyone have any recommendation on install? Would 3M double sided tape hold or should I use screws? The ad says there isn't any installation instructions or hardware for install.

i also have both, but going to try just the tape to see how sturdy it feels.. most likely will have to use screws as well.. but it is a lease.. so idk if i should use screws into the bumper.

dont know how crazy they are with that stuff at lease return lol.

Forgot to mention, when mine came in.. it did come with hardware.. no tape. self tap screws as well as bolts and nuts.. depending on what way you wanted to go.


Will install it hopefully this weekend.. last weekend.. was very snowy so opted out...

I got a steal on a sport line as well! Paid $45k for a brand new 340i with Navi, came standard with B58, sport auto w/ paddles, moonroof, Harmon Kardon, Comfort Access, backup cam, a lip would give it a more aggressive look! I also have black exhaust tips and blacked out grill on an Alpine white car with 19s. Would match quite well!
