Favorite major BMW tuning company??

So im looking into buying a front bumper/lip for my E92 335i and wanted to ask you guys what some of your favorite companies out there were? Hamann, Rieger, AC Shnitzer, Vorstiener, Hartge.....??? I like Hamann's lip and AC Shntz.'s too.

Personally for the coupe, i'd go with factory aero front lip. I love the look of hartge on the e90's but it just looks sort of off with the e92. Personally im going to wait to see if Strassentech comes out with anything for the e92. I love their lip on the m3 so hopefully they'll come out with something for the e92.

I personally enjoy the looks and sleekness of HAMANN. they dont over do it and make the car look ricey but still maintains an elegant, yet agressive look. GL w/ur choice.

I personally find Hamann a bit too agressive. I like AC Schnitzer and I usually love Hartge (except their version of the 6 series).

Strassentech is still looking for an E90 and an E92 for prototyping their kit on. If you have either car in Alpine White and live in SoCal please contact me. I meet with the head of Strassentech almost once a week.

OEM Aero front all the way. Add the M3 side skirts and you're set. Others look too ricey.
