Carbon fiber splitters from Jlevis?

Hello everyone,

I want a pair of carbon fiber splitters for my lci e90 msport. The oem ones cost around $275 EACH! Jlevis has them for $275 a pair:

I haven't had them but I've seen CF from third party vendors...the quality of CF really comes down to the epoxy used and the method used to create it. I believe the OEM ones use higher quality epoxy so they don't chip as easily?

OEM vs. Replica

Nothing fits or has better quality than OEM.

You get what you pay for when it comes to replica. . .

Bimmian.ca sells the same AutoCarbon stuff as the OP's link. The fitment has nothing to do with the supplier, just the manufacturer. I was also interested in these things because of the price but I am pretty picky with my mods and anything less than OEM fitment would bug me every time I would have looked at it. Plus I had someone send me a pic of the fitment of the same AutoCarbon splitters on their E90 and I wasn't impressed.

Check it and make your own judgments:

You realize in my pic you posted they were not installed. They were sitting loose. An oem anything will look bad too when not fastened. IMO they fit great.

To my knowledge, Bimmian does not offer the LCI M-Sport splitters. They only offer the LCI standard bumper splitters...as per the pic.

Go OEM. The fitment will be 100%. You will get durability. And the quality will be what you should expect. The difference in cost is worth it all the way.

Bimmian does carry LCI M-sport splitters. I bought a pair this summer and the fitment is spot on.
