I'm thinking that while it will look cool, I'll give it about 10 days. Especially around Everett, hell sound area in general. Too many tall curbs, too many dips in the driveways.

SO, go for it, but I give it ten days. Oh and a +1 for the creative use of a sneaker.

Roads here are just too shitty.

I'm not a fan ... It's bmw rice to me because the only chin spoilers out there like this are on course cars and they are legit splitters, but bolting a random splitter on the front of your car for looks is retarded imo. If it portrays a function that it doesn't actually serve its rice

Did you buy this off Mark Wu? He had an extended Kerscher Lip on his e92 wrapped in CF like yours Leon?

looks like it sticks at a bit too far and i can't tell but from the right side, it doesn't look like its fitted flush for your car. this a universal splitter? i'd make it as subtle and fitted as possible, but then again, that takes some fab work

I knew it looked familiar, he had it stick out 3" more than stock which if you go for a race look I wouldn't mind. But if it's subtle like his e92 was then it does look a tad out of place.

i didn't think his e92 was "subtle" but it was more the fitment of this part was just overly large

I still have a lot to fix with my bumper before putting this on. The reason why the driver side looks a bit off is because I was hit haha. thanks for the input. I'm going to see what I can do when the bumper comes off.
