Smile Searching for OEM front lip for 2011 328xi coupe

Hi,
I had just recently purchased a 2011 328xi coupe and I am trying to find an OEM M-Aero front lip for it. I've been searching around and they all end on year 2010 and nothing for 2011. If anyone found anything for 2011 please post them thanks

Im looking for a m-tech front lip too. I just purchased one from eBay for $89 and the fitment on the sides are a couple of inches short. It looks cheesy so im returning this back. Id like to see if anyone out there has an OEM or a replica that fits the way it should and where to buy it from.

I have a brand new set of carbon fiber splitters from ddm tuning. It doesn't fit my 2011 335is. I bought because I thought my bumper was the same as an m-tech. Let me how much u want for them. I can send u pics too

Mine is a 08 335xi coupe so my stock bumper is different than the 11 models. The splitters do look good but I really want the m-tech/aero front lip instead.

Yah, I couldn't find any thread that show people doing any kind of mod to the 2011 version bumper so was hoping someone might know.

They are Finisher Rods, and you can remove them bit I am not sure of the fitment to the M-Aero though,

Thank You for your link is very helpful. I was able to find a link that someone actually took it off

and now I just need to find out if anyone had tried and put a m-areo lip on that fits for the 2011 bumper.

That sucks to hear =P but thank you very much for the info. I might just change my bumper completely to either M-Tech or M3 Style Bumper then, since I don't really like the look of the 2011.
