Aero Lip Help!!!!

Hey guys I am considering purchasing an aero lip for my car, but i need to know how much ground clearance i will lose to the aero lip if i do install it. Also if I do purchase it would you guys recommend the one with the carbon fiber on the sides and painted space grey in the middle, or just the complete one that is all painted space grey all over?
I will attach some photos of the car for reference.
Thanks for your help.

The Aero Lip only adds a fraction of an inch so you won't lose much clearance at all. I've had one on my 07 335i for over a year and have had no problems.

it will make a big difference in appearance but the lowering part will be very little. And i would get it fully painted and not leave parts of it cf it looks funny

Make it fully painted for a cleaner looks. Ground clearance wise no more then .5", but it does extend forward from the bumper about 1-1.5", and thats where the biggest difference is. Here are pics of mine for reference. Same color car too.

Yeah, it mostly goes forward with a little drop down. All in all it's maybe 1/4 inch lower than stock.

The CF piece that folks show on some pics in another part (splitter) added to the bottom of the Aero Lip. It's not a standard part of the lip.
