But actually now I'm torn.

Do I save about $500 bucks and go for the rep or do I go authentic arkym and get perfect fitment?


Not sure if its worth the extra $500 since its going to be something that will just get scraped. But at the same time, I'm almost certain this won't fit as well the Arkym lip. (in all of their pictures they didn't even install it, so they're probably not as confident in the fitment either..)


What do you guys think?
Honestly man that's how I feel to tell you the truth. I don't like paying retail for Louis Vuitton name brand to get scrapped lol. 500 scrapped is better than what 800 I think it is to get scrap? That's just me. I'd spend 1200 on a Vanguard and 500 on a diffuzor but not 700-800 for a Lip that CAN easily get scrapped. No offensive to all the big ballers with the Arkym Lip, It is sure a fine ass lip but for the price. Sorry yall lols. I'll hit up the photos when mine is installed.

Yup. QFT.
I'll happily take the $300-$400 savings and put it toward other mods.



Can't wait for your photos.
Let us know how the install goes as well.

So I finally got around to getting this thing installled.
The lighting in my garage is real shit, so bear with me.

Here's some pics so you can get a better idea of how it fits:












I actually want to park next to someone with an authentic Arkym Lip to see how close it really is. Right now I'm pretty satisfied. I can't imagine the authentic lip could get much better.... but then again, I could be wrong lol.

Anyways hope this helps the OP.

Lip looks really good on the white E92 pics, was never a fan of the M-Tech front bumper, but this lip makes me change my mind on it. If you got an M-tech bumper and want a lip, this is certainly the right choice.

Its about $450


One thing to note tho.
When I initially got the lip, I held it up to my bumper and lined it up, and it actually looked like it would NOT fit. Nothing lined up.

So I emailed Alan************ and he told me that that was a common concern from people who bought this lip. He said once you drill the holes and actually mount it, the bumper and lip match up fine.

He was right and I'm really happy with the fitment.

Just thought this would help people not freak out when they get this lip. I almost returned the damn thing because of it lol.

Pretty sure I have the same issues and thought about returning it. I'll give this a try this weekend.
