Ebay Aero Lip Painted and Installed

I just purchased an Aero Lip from Ebay for 90$ and got it painted at a local shop. The total cost for the lip and painting was $250.

It fits good, except I had a problem getting the area next to the driver side fog light to stay down with the 3M tape. I will have to do it again later this evening. You can kinda see it bulge up a little in the picture.

Ebay Aero Lip...

I bought one of these things on Ebay too and it fits like crap.

The sides don't reach all the way back to the front edge of the wheel wells - there's like a quarter inch space from the end of the lip to the edge of the wheel well on both sides.

Yours looks great! I ordered mine last week off eBay after doing a lot of research. I'm hoping it will be here in the next couple of days. I work at a BMW dealership and this was 1/3 of my cost on a new one. I'll keep you guys posted on how well it fits.

I also just ordered my JB4 and DCI from Terry at BMS

Looks great, especially for that price lol
That "issue" is one of those things that no one else will notice, but it jumps out at us every time we see it.

Is that little picture actually showing a crease or is that just a reflection?

Ditto I purchased mine off eBay as well but I'm not sure if it was 90 bucks. But fitter was desirable. My question to you is the double sided tape you have on the lip strong enough? I had mine put on by the body shop when I took it to get painted and he suggested to me that double sided tape isn't strong enough and with time it will eventually fall off : anyway looks nice.

I went with bestracingmotors.

There are screws at the bottom of the bumper that you take off first an then you can screw them on after you put the lip on. Everything pretty much snaps into place. The tape seems to work well to hold the top piece together. The screws do the rest. I feared it would rip off or something when I drive, but everything seems to be fine. I should have let the paint dry longer though before installing it. After applying pressure to it, I think I saw some finger prints when looking up close. Hopefully, I can wet sand it out.
