Where to buy an Aero Lip Splitter E92

Guys/Gals,
I'm in the UK and looking for an Aero Lip Splitter, like these.. I know a guy on here with a Blue e92 had one but apparently he got banned?

Can anyone help identify a place to buy this from please?

Thanks.

Main dealer mate I ordered an eBay one and it was rubbish!

The uk dealers don't really know what an aero lip is though (spent 45 mins in Sheffield bmw talking to the parts department who were adamant they've never made such a thing)

Cheers man but was referring to the black splitter under the aero lip. I already have an aero lip molded

This is more an M Sport splitter. The images I attached in the 1st post show that the splitter follows a smooth curvature on the outside, whereas this doesn't... this is where I'm struggling to find the right one as pictured initially. Will however keep the one you suggested in mind. I can get hold of those ones for 200 here... yikes!!!

I think your best bet would be to have someone make it for you, I think someone with the right tools could make this easily out of sheet metal or something. I can't find the thread right now but I've seen someone by the name Ray making these lips for several members on here.

Edit* I found the thread.

You are right, they are different. The one you posted is more of a sweeping front where this one follows the bumper line. This is the exact same splitter that you referenced on the blue e92 (see picture below) that the guy (josh) got banned. That is why I thought it was the one you were looking for... He was at my house last Friday and I talked to him about it. he bought his on ebay. I bought one last year as well and never put it on and ended up selling it. (I dont have an M sport front) After seeing it on josh's car, I wish I had kept it...it looks really good. Good luck finding one though...sometimes the quest is better than the part...

Thanks guys.
Last resort would probably be the APR one..

I've texted Ray off my phone here but there's no confirmation of delivery of the message so does he have an email address? May just give him a call.

Thanks all.

Let us know when you find one. I'm thinking of getting the aero lip and will get this next.

So 3 weeks on and still looking for the aero lip splitter that’s depicted in my first post. Only company I saw selling this in the US was ‘concept performance’… but have not responded to my emails for almost two weeks, no answer on their phone and cannot even buy it on their website…

I’m willing to have it shipped to the UK but cannot find a vendor.. I’m baffled. Will the likes of LTBMW, JGMods, JL Motoring, JBSpeed, Sonic Tuning etc not have them?
