Im going to be buying the rieger lip for my 94 325i. (front bumper) Is it actually worth spending $170.00 after taxs from extremeparts.ca (4000 Steeles Avenue W) for this paticular lip?

What do you guys think? Any one else know of a better looking front lip for a e36 325i? (non M3 front bumper)

I don't want to change or take off my bumper so I'm going for the lip. I think it adds a decent amount of length to the bumper as well. If any one knows of another non m3 e36 bumper lip let me know where and how much.

Not knowing how to change your bumper is a bad excuse for settling for something less. Not only is it stickied in e36 but you can do it in like <10 minutes.

Believe me taking off the bumper is not the hard part, it's finding an original e36 m3 bumper and matching the paint to the rest of my car. That would be the hardest part because my car color is not stock. I don't think it's worth for my to go through all the trouble for a bumper I don't even like in the first place. (in my opinion ofcourse) Im also pretty interested in seeing how the reiger lip would look on my current bumper or if any one else knows of a similar lip...

OMG, I totally forgot about the alpina lip. That would be another amazing lip for a non m3 e36 bumper, but would it fit my 94 bumper though? (noob question, just want to be sure lol) But yes that is an amazing lip, wounder how much one would go for, would I even find a alpina lip? They're pretty rare. I wouldn't even mind getting it painted. (it would be worth it). I'm going to do some research on where I can score one. Lol thanks iverson03tj

hamman front lip ftw buts its expensive ( 400 bucks ) and the reiger one looks pretty good just not in that colour lol, be different and get a lip on ur non m bumper it looks dope with the foglight block off plates and black kidney's, unless ur the type of guy that likes m mirrors on a non m car, before my 328 got totaled i was going to buy a lip instead of the m3 bumper, not that the m3 bumper doesn't look good its just over done, if u swap in an m motor go for the m bumper if ur sticking with the original motor stick with the original bumper...i dunno I'm just weird...

$400 for a lip is a little pricey, although I can't say much with out looking around for the lip you're talking about I shall visit the hamman website unless you don't mind posting a pic. I really like the alpina lip as well but im pretty much most likely never going to get my hands on a original one. I absolutely hate the M mirrors on the e36 in general (in my opinion) even on the e36 M3's because the e36 is clean cut and has mainly straight lines on it, (no curves) so I'm not sure how the curvey mirrors would exactly fit in. I like the non mirrors they give the car some class lol and are shaped accordingly for the e36. If I got the reiger lip I would paint it black (similar finish to the VR6 lip)

I'm not too sure if the splitter is included but, the second picture is directly from the extremeautoparts.ca website. I mean if they advertise it in the photo you never know but I highly doubt its included. You can visit their web site and give them a call their really friendly people the phone number is on the top right corner.

It does look simple and clean I like the lip overall, I'm a little concerned about the length though. It wont add very much. I like the shape goes well with the bumper. I'm going to keep it in mind Thanks.

What do you mean one color instead of two? Are you talking about the reiger lip? If you are it comes in primer white when you purchase it and you can paint it any color.

Maybe I don't have it? I feel blind as I can't tell if it's the same or not.

^ your lip looks the same as the reiger, (in my opinion) I'm pretty sure it is. It looks awesome on your non M bumper matter fact the whole front of your car looks nice. Is your car lowered? And did the lip come with the spilitter or did you add it after?

The car is lowered. The lip itself had the splitter that you're talking about molded into it. 1 piece.

Unfortunately I can't tell you where you would be able to get it as I had bought this piece from someone else.

Oh the splitter is molded on, I see. I think I'm starting to get why most e36 owners go for the M bumper instead of a lip for the non M bumper. Most lips I've looked at are pretty riced out and have almost no business being on the car lol... I need to find a lip like the alpina or somthing damn near close to it.
