Installed Front Bumper Lip
« on: October 11, 2015, 07:08:43 PM »
Hey guys,

Just wanted to show you all this awesome little front bumper lip that I finally installed this weekend!

It essentially just screws in underneath using some existing bolts and some self-tapper screws. I also modified a little bracket to provide further support.







I think that it just makes the front of her look that little bit more aggressive. I have noticed it does make the front lower by a good couple of inches, but I went out to some nearby speed bumps where I live that are absolutely ridiculously steep and I got over absolutely fine by going nice and slow of course!

Does look good, good fit for the car; was it specifically for a 3? How much?

Yeah It's specifically for the 3, required a little modifying to make it fit nice and snug, came to around £80 from here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371040141343?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

No I didn't which I thought was a bit strange as normally you would.
