Cf lip or regular lip?

I am wanting to buy a lip for my M-Tech bumper and am wondering whether to go for a cf lip or a regular lip matching the color of my car. I have a 09 e90 LCI in Sapphire Metallic Black.

Also what is a good vendor/source to buy it from? Any recommendations please?

Personally I would not get just one carbon fiber accessory, unless you had at least one other carbon fiber accessory on the car.

I, too, have debated this on my black sapphire car, but decided against it, as I'm pretty sure you'd have to be pretty much on top of it to notice LOL

What do you mean use money to mold it on? I meant that I understand that you are saying I spend money to have it molded on but how does that work? I am a total newbie at this whole lip thing

Im not a fan of CF, but im weird like that. Personally, i think CF is awesome, the pattern, feel, weight etc., but i do not like the way it looks ON the car. Not to mention the real purpose of CF is the lightweightness (word?) of it, so unless you're racing the car, it's kind of pointless.

Girlfriend bought my carbon fiber aero/mtech front lip off ebay FOR ONLY $175 shipped. Surprisingly, it was a 9.5/10 fitment. I didn't even have to use 3m tape. Just the 5 screws on the bottom. Very good quality. CF looked real nice and nothing bad about it.
