Help with an e90 splitter please!

I bought a sport bumper for my E90 320d, but have yet buy sport fogs, mesh and have yet to spray and fit it.

I'm now considering selling the sport bumper and buying a front lip/splitter instead. But the only one I would like is the one I can't find the name off. It comes down in the centre, almost like the sport bumper. I think it may be a Schnitzer one, but I couldn't be sure. Its not the Schnitzer ones that are on ebay and the likes, I have found this front lip/splitter no where, I've only ever seen it on cars with the original SE bumper and original fog lights.

If anyone knows what it's called and/or where I could get it would be great, thanks!

I'm in the UK also if that helps.

Ps. I can't even find a picture of one to show you!

Not the Hartge lip? Looks way better than the M Sport bumper IMO:

I know the one you're talkin about, it's like m sport only very slopey at the front, almost pointing downwards. There's a dealer in NI sells a lot of SE's with this lip on SE's...just let me have a look for some pics...

Yes my friend, you know what I'm talking about at last!

I'm in NI, I see quite a few cars about with these lips on them!

AFAIK the Aero lip is only available for the E92/93, not the E90. I'm happy to be corrected, but I think that's the case.

Aerolip = e92, I think the lip in question here is for an e90 AFAIK?

Still looking for that pic...

Yes the lip is for an e90. And no its not the aero lip anyway, remember it's like the sport bumper, it comes down more in the middle than it does at the sides. But the original fog lights are still there. If you look at it from a side view the splitter sits out quite a bit, it is slopey as said above.

I'm afraid it's not it either! It comes down more at the sides than it does in the middle, the one I'm talking about comes down more in the middle than it does at the sides..

There is an e90 3 series parked across the road from where I study and it has the lip I'm talking about. But I have no way of taking a picture of it to post up. However, there is an AC Schnitzer sticker on it.

No its not that one, that one clearly comes down more at the sides. If you've read above you will see the one I have in mind comes down more in the centre.

Is it not the BMW Aerodynamic Kit front apron? I've seen quite a few like this kicking around Belfast.

http://bmw.co.uk/bmwuk/owner/accesso...4ubmV0,00.html

It's only available on the 2006 on coupe by the look of it?

Believe it or not no, I don't even have a camera on my phone. I break my phone to often so it's not logical to buy a decent phone anymore. 10, phones4u, sorted!
