Carbon Fiber Front Lip

Does anybody have a real-life picture of these? It's $600+ accessories, and not sure if it's actually good looking

I actually think the opposite... it blends in better with dark colors but stands out too much on bright colors. If I got this for a bright colored car, I'd probably paint them to match the body... but then again, you'd be wasting the premium you're paying for the carbon fiber weave look.

I know right! Anything that's carbon fiber automatically becomes ridiculously expensive. When I get my car, I'm going to wait for aftermarket options.

that's what i meant. of course carbon fiber looks good on anything (well almost) but for 600 bucks on a dark color that won't make it stand out...not really quite worth it

What happens to carbon fiber when you hit one of those parking space concrete thingies?

The carbon fiber scratches and dents up, then you eyes will tear up . Sad, but expensively true.

Ah, but the plastic bumper can probably take much more impact before getting damaged than a CF splitter. Also, a new bumper probably costs less than $600!

I recently purchased these CF Front Lips from pacificbmw and decided that they would not look good on my titanium silver 330i. If anyone is interested, I will sell them for $460 and comp the shipping charges in the U.S. They are un-used and still in the boxes they came in.

Email me at drewpfarr@gmail.com with any additional questions. Thanks.

Carbon Fiber on SG definitely looks much sharper than the rest I think, thks for the post.
Question, How hard was the install? Was it just glue in?
Looks Good! I heard $450/pair was the lowest Ive seen,
Did you beat that?
thks again!

Well I got mine installed for free by the dealership, so it did not cost me anything they paid for parts and labor. They did this bc they messed up big time on the delivery shedule and my family members are valued costumers.
