1013mm Photoshoot of my Custom BMW M7 in DownTown LA

Long Tran of LTBMW worked his magic again. After fitting my custom M7 hybrid bumper I felt something was missing. I wanted to add a front lip. I loved the look of the 3D Designs F10 M5 carbon fiber lip.

Because of the different size and width of my hybrid bumper Long crafted his own front lip for me an molded it to my existing bumper. Carbon Fiber bottom splitters were added as well. I also had the roof and shark fin antenna wrapped in carbon fiber vinyl by Wintech Films.

Before with just Alpina Front Lip

Very nice! I love everything about it. The bumper looks excellent. The splitters are a nice addition.

Shouldn't the splitter extend the entire width of the bumper?

Thats the only thing I could "critique" if you wanted some constructive criticism. It looks stunning though.

Glad you didnt put a M7 badge on it

That is just how the 3d designs carbon fiber splitters are manufactured.
