Painted or CF splitters with Lip

I’ve search many posts the past two days and didn’t find any pictures, so maybe I can get some people’s opinion on this?

I was thinking of going with painted splitters from JBSpeed and ********** and this lip http://www.**********s.com/Carbon-Fi...ip-E90-E92.htm .

However, Tischer BMW also sells these carbon fiber painted splitters. My question is would it look good with painted ones or should I go all out carbon fiber. Unless someone can do a better job in PS, here is my sorry attempt lol

You probably know this, you've been on the forum for a while.. I don't know if you also have an e90 but those splitters in the picture will not fit your e93. I have splitters and the Hamann style lip on my car painted in black. Check it out in the link in my sig if you want. Oh I also vote white splitter and carbon lip lol

The picture looks like non sport lci splitters with kescher lip? Not hamann lip? I have the splitters waiting for my hamann lip see if it will fit under.. If not i will prolly take out the splitters and jus add the hamann lip.. I think both splitter and lip will make my car not go anywhere since i live up north.. Just started snowing

Just body colored splitters look best to me. All black splitters and lip make it look like you are missing the bottom of your bumper

Color code for Platinum Bronze?

Thanks for all y'all feedback! BTW, I was told the color code was near the kick plate of the car but I couldn't find it. Does anyone know the Color Code for PLATINUM BRONZE? Thanks in advance!

You can check your paint code here and your equipment list etc.

http://www.bmw.com/com/en/owners/acc...catalogue.html

Just log on to that electronic parts catalog and enter seven last letters/numbers from your BMW's VIN number. Then choose options from the top and then vehicle information. There will be your paint code listed.It's A__something.

And on topic you should paint the splitters to bodycolor.
