OEM LTW... beautiful, and yes rare... but does it look THAT more different than other lips out there?

OK, then forget I mentioned anything about CF ACS

Perhaps T-Spec could be persuaded to make something in CF for you. Ever considered designing your own lip?

hell yeah it does
That thing is adjustable. Which other djustable lip you saw??


LTW lip is the most expensive lip I've ever seen.
CF ACS one is 500US, and looks just like a bigger version of the stock m3 lip

I think the stock M3 bumper with the Rieger lip "add on" is the best combo because the lip has a different angle then the full Rieger Infinity bumper....but then again you dont want fiberglass...

You do have a good point...but the lip finishes off like so l , just like the side skirts and the rear so it will match your car. It will be funny if you dont get the rear and you end up with
l 0 l-----------l 0 /-

LTW SPLITTER FOR SURE!
That thing looks MUCH better than the Rieger combo!
IMO, the reiger doesn't look too different from the OEM bumper, and the LTW looks MUCH better, and its VERRRRRRY purposeful with down force!

I like the LTW out of those two!

I'm thinking of getting a lip for my car to make my front even with the side skirts. The problem is I don't like any of the E36 lips on the market. LTW is prolly the best one out there but I still wouldn't buy it. I think it might make my car look bad. I'm thinking of making a custom M3 lip which is lower so it could be even with the side skirts when looking at the car from the side.

Guys, am I the only one that thinks the LTW one looks more like a triple chin on a fat guy, than a lip? I have always thought it was ugly, especially when someone puts it on and makes it stick out 5 feet.
