aero lip > m-tech front?

Am I the only one that things the aero lip looks a ton better than the m-tech or m3 fronts? lol. The money difference isnt even factored, if they were the same price I think I would still go with the aero lip set up. Anybody else or should I get my flame suit on?

I also love the way the aero lip looks... I only wish it looked like one bumper not an add on.

And before you say mold it, that costs money and still looks a little stick on right around the mesh

E92 yes, E90 no.

I like not having any unnecessary resemblance to the m3

Dr. G has a point though, white has to be mtech

It's funny, I hear people always saying that like it's gospel, but in my observations them-tech now seems more common on the forum (and streets) than the aero kit/lip.

I think the aero kit was common when M-tech hadn't been released yet, so everyone looking to add body styling ended up getting it. But now that the m-tech has been out for so long and so many people migrated over to that style, that now the aero lip is rarer to see in the wild.

In terms of styling, I like the aero kit a bit more. It just loses some points for being a seperate overlay piece. It's really hard to beat an m-tech bumper with a CF Arkym lip, though.

I got the aero lip the other day. It's much more aggressive than the M-sport which is why I got it. The M-sport is definitely more rare on the forums. But I see more M-sports out on the road than I do the aero lips. So I'm glad I went with the lip.
