I voted Rieger cause (if it's for you) it would go better with the painted mouldings. The LTW is pretty sweet still.

I would go with LTW splitter since nobody on maX has one. And can someone photochop it silver to match the car?

Dude, everytime you photoshop something the contrast and brightness is WAY off afterwards. Your monitor must be very dark eh? (naw it's ok, i'm just teasing)

The rieger kit is abs plastic and very well made too. I've test fitted mine 3 times so far and the only modification I had to do was nothing! It was a perfect fit (with a bit of force mind you)

Rieger bumper, it's a cleaner look. LTW is nice, but I can't stand it when the diffuser is extended so far out.

I say LTW. Both the Riger and the LTW are getting played out though on Bimmerforums and DTMPower, but here in Kanata.. you should be fine. Its funny that there are so many options for a normal E36 bumper as opposed to the E36 M bumper.

Would you consider ACS, Hamann, or Alpina lips? All of those companies lips are gorgeous and less over-done.

Here are some more options.

E36 92-99 3Series carbon fibre lip by Rieger-tuning

ACS Carbon lip

Well I dunno what I like really more. But OEM LTW splitter is far from overplayed. That thing is almost impossible to get.

But the problem is, driving around with a 1000USD lip that is very hard to get isnt the smartest thing.
