Modbargains and Vorsteiner dont deal with each other anymore. I suggest skipping the vendors and ordering it directly from Vorsteiner.

could you send the link for that carbon lip i couldnt find it on that website u gave me Thanks
You can also get the Vorsteiner lip through www.Bavarianx.com ... talk to Brad and tell him Eddie referred you...he'll get you a great price...

I ordered the lip through Vorsteiner, and they were quoting a ridiculous $1500, but I used a coupon that I won....


I just got the RPI scoops installed this morning through Eloy....great guy to work with....

curbs, stops and stuff.

Wouldn't last a week on my car.

I never hit anything at a speed of over 5mph baut I'm hell on those little curb/stop things, always afraid to leave the tail out too far. Live with rash on my wheels.

OTOH I Have no dings and no chips after 22 months.

Got my first chip in the paint last month after 17 months.

Back to the topic. If y'all look under the front valance panel of your car you'll notice that in front of the wheels (on the "corners") you will see what appears to be an aerodynamic plastic piece. I'm guessing it helps direct air around the wheels (emphasis on "guess"). Anyway, last weekend I pulled up to a curb at an angle and hit the corner of this piece in just the right spot and the dang thing ripped out of the three little plastic rivets that hold the front of this piece in place. I'm sure it's all of a couple of bucks worth of plastic but I just can't wait to see what BMW will charge me to replace it. If I would of had a lip on the front it would not have been pretty.
