Alternative to the M performance front splitter

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I saw a "lightweight" front splitter on this forum and decided to order one from Germany. I think it has a nice clean look, what do you think?

Nope it is this one.....just screws into the bottom of the bumper with self tapping screws and the two center screws go into existing holes with the metal clips.

I actually prefer this to the MP version, much cleaner and lighter. Any issues getting it to the US and what was the final cost?

I would love to know the same. This is my favorite front lip option that I have seen as of yet.

i just got an email back from them:

"lip incl. UPS Airfreight, door to door service and german custom dues alltogether 455,29 €.
Lip is on stock, so we can send it fast.
Payment via wireless banking or PayPal - like you want to."

works out to be about $500 bucks or so *eek*

Love the lip, but deciding if it's worth $500.

Sorry away for a bit

I paid $488 total, exchange rate at that point I guess.
It is surely a lot of $$$ for a roto cast flat blade of plastic but the alternatives are even more costly and more of a hassle to me.
These forums are not healthy to our wallets!

i agree with the hassle comment. not interested in buying the MP splitter and then having to paint it. Wish this was only $300 or so..

EAS is advertising them here in the states. I just got off the phone with Dan and they are charging $429 plus shipping.
I should have waited to order from them!

How much was it if you don't mind me asking. I kind of like this look better than the M performance one.

That's my car in the EAS photos. I've had it on since the beginning of Jan and I can say with high confidence that it is extremely durable. Well worth the price.

I run this splitter as well. I love it. It has started to take a bit of a beating after 4 months though.
