Hey all,

I just snagged this nifty M3 lip that will fit my stock E36 bumper. This is the lip that is commonly found on M3s that was cut down and reshaped a bit to fit our stock E36 bumpers.

I was thinking of getting it sprayed to match my car, but the more I look at it the more I think I should leave it black. Its soo small that I think it will go unnoticed if I color match.

The picture is pretty crappy, but i think its gonna add a nice subtle freshing up of the front end when I lower it this spring.

Usually I don't let popular opinion sway me on my styling choices but eachtime I look at it, I only get more indecisive as to whether to spray it or not. My bumper's lower grill is black, and it could have a nice contrast with my cars color (silver) and my dark tints

Dunno, Im curious what everyone else thinks about what could be cool little add on.


TY
NL

PS: forgive the crappy pic, but I haven't gotten it yet.... (my car is the same color)

Not exactly the same thing here but a color matched lip that sorta matches the style.

This one looks pretty good spray matched, and I like the grill matched as well. But I think having a artic silver grill wouldn't look right on my ride.

You should have the bumpers painted to match, and leave the lip black.
