OEM lip for 335 e92 Question

Does the oem style front lip for the e92 335 add any length to the bumper? I am concered about clearance.

If so, about how much? An inch?

Nope, perfect fit on. What do you mean by clearance, dont have to worry.

Does the lip lower the front bumper clearance?

I have a replica but it doesnt lower it by much if any. It still clears speed bumps etc..But if your car is lowered on race suspension then that will change things obviously. Im still on sport suspension.

Yes. The lip is going to hang a little lower but not anything major.

the thickness is about 1/4 in and flares down about another 1in. If i had to guess, it will lower your front bumper clearance by 1.25 in
