Check out my new front lip: VW MKIII VR6 front lip on E36 non-M bumper







All it took was some nuts and bolts and a Dremel.

Looks really good!
I've seen this done a couple times as e30 front lips.
How did you mount it?
Did it need any cutting or anything?

VR6 lips are like E36 M3 mirrors.

People put them on other cars all the time, and it never looks right.

Looks kinda like the home depo lip.

Meh.

Edit:

theox69 he says he used a dremel so I assume some cutting was involved.

Yeah I had to remove the bumper to attach it. I used the Dremel to cutoff the excess and drill holes in the lip and the bumper for fastening. I think it looks pretty clean. The texture of the lip matches my bumper moldings. I used to be dead-against ANY lip for this bumper and was all about the M3 front bumper. Then I saw I a pic of the setup in a pic thread on Bf.c and was surprised at how well it flowed. It cost me less than $20 off of vwvortex.

but are you sure thats the vr6 lip? that looks like the regular front lip off a mk3. the vr6 lip is molded in the middle and judging that you only paid 20$ for it im guessing its not. (i used to drive a mk3)

IMO blacked out/smoked corners and some rims will make it even cleaner!

It looks very flush from the front, but then it awkwardly cuts down at the side. Not a fan from the side. But the front looks amazing.
