E92 M sport front lip/splitter

Hi Guys, can anybody direct me to a supplier for a full width front lip/splitter for the M sport front bumper? I've tried searching but the only ones I've seen are either hideous looking or hideously expensive. Not bothered about it being carbon fibre just plastic will do, surely there must be something out there or this is an ideal opportunity for a company to make one, think a decent one would sell well like the boot lip spoiler.
Cheers in advance.

only one i would consider for the m sport bumper is the ARKYM lip mate, Teddy at SSDD does a replica may be worth speaking to him about it

it is full carbon! for an awesome lip thats the one i would go for!

not aware of anyone else doing it at the moment! the original ARKYM lip if not mistaken is around 800/900 but dam sexy!!! lol



it can be argued though that if you was considering paying that much, you wouldnt be far off from the 1M rep bumper prices!!!

something to consider!

hope that helps

Going by the amount of clearance shown, that would last about 5 minutes on my car, given the quality of the roads where I live...

I thought that too, but looking closely the photo it is a little deceptive, I think the car's wheels are hard up against the kerb - look to the top left of the photo where you can see the kerb.

yea its up on a raised section and i can bet your bottom dollar a car like that is dropped on its ass!!!!

none of us are running cars that low so i doubt we would have that problem lol!

the lip doesnt necessarily lower the car, just pushes the front end out by about 1.5/2"+

I think that's a ramp. not a kerb. There's no way that tyre is pressed against a kerb.

Yes cheers, have seen the Arkym lip & I love it, exactly what I'm after but not at that price, $849 + delivery iirc!! Do you know if the one you're talking about from Teddy at SSDD is on his website? Seen a couple on there but they are not like the Arkym one, surely there would be massive demand for one like the Arkym but just in plastic to keep costs down.

P.s, that car in the pic is slammed to the ground, wouldn't cause to many issues for cars with standard suspension.
