I guess it's a moot point (unless you were the buyer).

was the buyer. I am sure he will list more of them on as well. Worried about ground clearance.

I have problems scraping my MTech front bumper when I park in spaces with curbs or berms. I imagine having a lip will make it even worse.

Looks interesting.. I've been looking lately for lips.. but there aren't a lot out there... I'm curious to hear how much lower it makes the front.

I just realized by the picture and your statement that it's for a pre lci bumper.. I think I'm still outta luck on my LCI. I don't think I want to do the Mtech since everyone wants to be an M5..

This may give you an idea. I'm pre-LCI also.

I have an M-Sport car (comes with M-Tech kit), ride height is stock. I have a lip on my car, it scrapes quite often. I consider it a wear item, plan on replacing it every 2 years or so - had mine for a year, not sure it will last another

Love the mtech bumper! I would love to get one but just bought the car. Wonder if the lip sits around the same height as the mtech or if its lower?

How much clearance do you have at the lowest point?
