Standard, Non-M bumper, front lip options?

Searching the usual suspects like eBay and aliexpress, among more expensive options I'm not seeing anything available for the standard F34 bumper in regards to a full lip or partial "wing" type lip extensions.

New to the F43 in general and wanted to see what's the go-to for people?

I still haven't had any luck besides finding those universal "garage door" strips ..

Is there really nothing out there?

The black one looks more like an M4 than a GT to me.

I honestly dont know what it is (other than not an F30).... but I highly doubt its an M4 with a base bumper? Dont be fooled by the mirrors.

Could be wrong but dont you have a GT?

Can you shed any light on the black car in the photo... is that your front end or not?

Im poisitive its not an F30, F31, F32.

Well I guess I rather meant "a 4er with M4 parts tacked on".

The black car is an F32. Either way both of those are 100% not F34 bc it would be obvious with the bigger headlights. F34 doesn't have much aftermarket support sadly.

Here's a f30/F32 comparison

You are correct. My apologies.

Back to the original question for OP-

Are the basic bumpers the same (on the bottom at least) on F34... so that an F30 or F32 lip would fit?

I think thats the end game here.

Nothing is the same on the f34. Pretty much the only aftermarket parts for the f34 bumper wise is cf lips, splitters, and diffuser in M Sport only. I've yet to see anything made specifically for the non m sport f34.

Ah what a bummer. I came from a VW Alltrack which also had no support. I guess thats just the norm for uncommon / quirky cars. I would have thought someone had some kind of basic ABS lip.


Pre-LCI Base / lux front bumper for reference.
