Thread bump...

Idk, still digging ACS-style lip on AW E92... although I do agree on that silver E92 in the first post that it looks too blocky. But these 2 pics make me think otherwise.... hmmm

Another vote for the OEM Aero Lip over the ACS - ACS looks like a 'swollen fat lip' (play on words) IMO over the Aero. Too big and bulky - Aero is streamlined and refined and what I have on my SGM E92.

But, it's your car - go with what you like best...

I hate to be negative but that acs lip is ugly, I saw one on a black coupe the other day and I thought it looked terrible, I have the oem aero lip and think it looks 10 times better
