Front Bumper Lip

I was wondering what kind of lips are available to put on a Non-M bumper. I would like to do it to cover up a lot of the nicks becuase the previous owner appears to have driven over a curb or two.

I have seen some online but they are just way to big and ingodly looking. I am looking for a lip that is not to large and looks nice. Any ideas?

I got mine at www.bavauto.com I like it, but I don't know if it fits your tastes. If you can find an alpina one they look really nice.

I do like it, but right where it is absent is exactly where I am trying to cover up...

Thanks guys.

Is this what you're talking about Odin?

That is more what I'm looking for...it is a little on the large size, but I'm not sure how much smaller I can find.

Resurrecting an old thread, got my lip the same place as cmybimmer, Home Depot. Cheap and easy, 1 paver edging strip and self tapping screws or bolts and nuts with fender washers.
