trying to decide between two M3 bumpers...opinions?

I know you guys have nothing if not opinions

Option 1-ABS plastic M3 bumper from ASP tuning with detachable lip

Option 2-PP M3 bumper from Bavtoys without detachable lip

the cost difference is negligible, the PP one is obviously superior material but doesn't come with a detachable lip, would detaching the lip for winter be essential or is it just frivolty? Its for an e36 btw. Thanks guys.

isn't ABS what the OEM is made from? I would go with that.

The ASP Tuning one is not ABS ... it's PP. It's actually a DDM bumper ... they ship directly from DDM. How much shipping did ASP quote you?

its PP? It says ABS on their website. I thought it looked exactly like the DDM, but it said ABS so I assumed

I forgot how much shipping was, but with the bumper on special, the total including shipping came to around 270
