Aero Front Lip

I'm having a problem deciding which one to go for!
The options I have so far:
1. Getbmwparts.com http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...catalogid=4462

$295 + $35 shipping + $175 paint
I think this would be the best quality and fitment as it is an OEM product.

2. Euro-Division http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=632174

$180 shipped No painting service
It's an Aero "style" lip!

3. eBay
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/220825923...ht_2163wt_1144
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/280723801...ht_2099wt_1378
http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/110812343...ht_5864wt_1378

About $140 shipped

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/320821560...ht_5993wt_1378

$300 shipped + painted

What do you guys think? Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.

Go OEM - its not that much more expensive, maybe $200 or so when all the costs are added up.

Go OEM. You'll have no regrets in the end.

The eBay ones fit perfectly. I had one. I'm sure Jason's ones are pretty good too... Plus when you get it painted here in Aus, they can match to your car, if it's prepainted it will be very similar, but not exactly the same... Perhaps 90% the same, compared to if a panel beater sprayed it for you where it would be up around 95%.

Yes, I had that experience when I ordered painted roof and trunk spoilers for my E90. You could easily notice the difference in colour under sunlight. I guess I'll order it unpainted.

Where did you have yours painted? And what was the cost?

Nice!

On another note, it's obvious which tune you're going to go with (if you already haven't) haha - number plates tell it all

I got the eBay one. I think it's identical to the OEM one.

I know this is the wrong place but I don't care.

I was a little quick to pull the trigger on a front lip from euro division and only later thought, mmmmmm is it for the msport or stock front bar. well as we all know it is only for the non msport bar.

So If anyone is interested in a 'never used', 'unopened box' I have one for sale, pm if interested
