I like the lip, but the splitters do look damn good as well.

^ actualy that is a very good point. I dont think they would look too good on a white car. they would just pop too much. my advise? look up Slimbones front lip. it aint cheap but its realy nice. and the huge cf lip thats on ebay for 250-300 aint bad either i just dont like the sides of them.

Hi

Lip spoiler for me!



That's the ExoticsTuning E39 Strassentech style limited edition piece. Slimmbones who makes styling pieces has a good selection to browse and so do dtmfiberwerks - http://www.dtmfiberwerkz.com/access/

Cheers, Dennis!
