M3 vs Mtech vs Aero Lip height question

So am trying to decide between getting the m3 retrofit bumper or go mtech. I currently have the OEM bumper + aero lip setup.

Is one of these 3 setups closer to the ground than the others or are they all about the same? Reason being, I am lowered on sport springs and want to know if I am going to have to be more careful with m3 or mtech.

Also..... M3 or mtech? Opinions on which I should go.

I love my m3 rep with air vents, but if I was to do it again (which I might in the summer) it would be the 1M bumper.

Had both, OEM aero then switched to OEM MTECH.

Height is about the same.

OEM Mtech

If I could do ANY... I'd do ARKYM = $$$$$
If I were to try to get the best, I'd do 1M (LTMW)= $$$
I love my OEM M-sport bumper.

I can tell you that the aero lip is lower than the M3 bumper.

Thanks everyone for input and direction. For lack of time and staying within a reasonable budget, I think im leaning towards the m3 bumper retroit with the fog delete/m3 air ducts... then possibly a lip. Seeing a few shots of some e92s with the oem m3 air ducts looks pretty freakin nice...

bahh I'm torn between the three as well... Currently I have just the stock bumper and the OEM aero lip sitting in my garage.. It's going to cost around $150 to paint it and I'll end up spending a total of $450 for the aero lip + paint. Not to mention the stupid painted reflectors ($100) that I would end up getting later because I can't stand the amber reflectors. So that's about $550 total if I stay with the oem aero lip option.

Thinking if I should go to msport or m3 route instead..
