Yours looks good as well! Later E92's already have black grilles - the E90's have the ugly gray grilles

Quick question to those who bought this lip: I have this as well and it came with some screws...did you guys use those as well with the 3M tape or how did you guys secure the lip to the car?

I just used the OEM screws from the bottom of the front bumper + 3M automotive tape to secure mine. I think my lip had holes for 5 screws if I remember correctly. It's not going anywhere!

I have an e92 07 335i ... and yes it was from doe.industries.

But seeing that the basonyr packs and ships exactly the same from another member's post, I'm thinking that they are all using the same supplier.

yours looks good.... i got mine today and it was a bit deformed.... it had a bit of a bow right in the middle on the top.... it came with that little note that it could be heated up and it would go back to the original shape or bent back.... did yours need any heating and bending?

although even with the little bend/bubble, it still looked pretty damn good on the car. im really hoping the bend can be worked out with a little heat.

I did have to use a hair dryer on mine to bend it back to shape a bit... but it seems to have worked just fine.... am i the only one with this issue?
