Question ARKYM Aerosport Front Lip Spoiler or BMW Performance Front Lip Spoiler

Hey guys and girls, I want to know your opinion. I jus picked up an oem cf performance rear spoiler for my Black Sapphire Metallic 335is. I also want to get a front lip spoiler but I am undecided on ARKYM Aerosport Front Lip Spoiler or the BMW Performance Front Lip Spoiler. I am looking for performance and looks. Obviously the OEM is built for performance but I don't know anything about ARKYM spoilers. Or should I do nothing at all in the front? Help me out. Thanks!

Here are links to both :

You don't know anything about ARKYM?
ARKYM had the most OEM fit as can be. Fits directly on to m sport bumper. I will be installing mine tomorrow morning. Read reviews on it. You will see it tops nearly any other competitor out of the water. Probably the best quality front lip made for the m sport.

No I don't know anything about them. So the fitment is like oem but what about the performance aspects of it? Reducing lift / increasing downforce? I can't wait to see what yours looks like.

get the arkym lip.

the oem perf front lip is a nice piece, but costs a shitload because it's oem (well arkym is expensive too), and in my opinion doesnt do much for looks because you can barely see it so the front bumper still looks like it needs a lip.

Man you guys aren't playin around. Zero for oem spoiler. I think the Arkym look better but does it perform better than the oem spoiler?

You're not helping. lol jk Yea, I agree but I think that a front spoiler would give it a unique look. I think the oem one would be great for performance and the arkym would make it look even more unique. Decisions decisions.

Sorry it's taking a while.
But, I snapped a few pics right after I got my roof wrapped.
They're iphone pics, but you can tell me if they do justice.
PS: THEY ARE OEM FITMENT! Amazing how well it lined up!!!!!! They use existing holes.
IMHO probably best lip I've seen. I've been through a lot and my friends LOVE it.









Enjoy

don't get me wrong, arkym is a great lip in terms of quality n fitment, but 3ddesign -imo- is cleaner n more oem-esque.
plus, NOBODY has the 3d lip.

the 3Ddesign is definitely cleaner. the lines are straighter and gets rid of that funky kink the LCI's have between the side grilles and the center grille.

Yeah infamous, tell them what's good!
I also agree with him on the 3D lip, if I had a e92 LCI I would put the 3D lip for the rarity of it on the forum and imo it completes the bumper beautifully
but the arkym lip would be a close second.

Does 3D have a lip for pre-lci? I think the Arkym lip looks way better on a pre-LCI e92.
