pics of new additions(and then some)!!unpainted ebay lip and ebay german tag

I have had this lip for over a month sitting in my garage and i had no intention of putting it on until i painted..UNTIL i began to notice some scratches on the bottom of my bumper and even some heavy rash, so ill throw it on as is for now and while im at it i installed a german tag that i got myself with some ebay bucks(free) during the holidays.

Strongly reccomend the tag for those of you that hate that factory plate mount and dont want the wholes exposed, $35 and it comes with a tag holder. Good quallity as well. As for the lip i cant complain for a lip that came out to like $90, fitment is good and quality seems to be holding up.

id rather have no front lip instead of an unpainted lip like that. it's too big to leave unpainted. makes the car look ghetto.

I like that lip alot! what is it?

I WISH they made something like that for the pre lci sedans...

... I will just have to "settle" for pre lci front splitters, but would really like something like that. ... wonder how hard it is to make it fit pre lci sedan front end?

its just one of those ebay mtech lips(im sure theyre all the same)

you know we actually test fitted this on my buddies pre lci e90 and it didnt look like it would be alot of hassle to fit it, there would have to be some cutting involved of course but it doesnt look like it would be an impossible task

i never said i would get deep scratches within a couple of weeks?? and i never said sides of the bumper i said edges, i moved recently and the driveway is more slanted then the previous house i bought the lip with the idea that it would be cheaper to trash the bottom edges of the lip and keep the bumper protected then thrashing the bottom of the bumper to begin with. I haven't painted it because with the move i haven't had the time and probably wont for another couple weeks.

I dig it. I personally would like the Gunmetal wheels on your car for more contrast.
