Picture Request: Black 330i with Carbon Fiber Front

I've seen a few Black 330i pictures with the Carbon Fiber aerodynamic splitters, but does anyone have one of these in daylight?I've used the configurator CD to get an idea of what this looks like on a black car, and you can hardly even see the difference with/without it.

If anyone has ordered a Black 330i with the carbon fiber splitters, and is lucky enough to have it in his/her hands, please send pics.

Thanks!

Nathan, did you see these pics in the official black thread? Or maybe you're looking for something that has better lighting?

Yep, seen these. I want something, preferably out in the sun. I can't decide whether these add much value to a black 330i right now, which is why i want to see some more pics of it on a black car.

Thanks!

Cheers,
theoretically they help with downforce on the front end when you are going at high speeds, and i'm sure they do work at 100+ speeds, but realistically, BMW makes them for looks

As said before they are basically to make the front bumper look more sporty while we wait for the new sport bumpers in September

I'm really not into the whole carbon fiber look... if I were to get that lip I'd paint it to match body color ... CF is just for the looks.. it's like the worst material to make a bumper lip out of since once since if u make contact with anything it'll crack, not like plastic or poly.

Nope, they look black to me. You must be colour blind. Unless you've got too much Monaco blue on the brain.
