This ^^

Looks great! Subtle yet gives personality to the front of the 1M. I assume it uses stock bumper holes and bolts to go right on?

Yes it can be 1x1 or 2x2.. I am going to suggest whatever matches the BMW stuff so people with mirror caps and the decklid spoiler will have matching pieces.

I havent looked under the car yet, but yes I am assuming it will bolt on through existing holes. We may need longer bolts, I havent looked into specifics since we dont have the requisite 20 people yet.

I now have worked out something with a new vendor for a GB.

We are looking at 6-700 dollars for a CRT like front spoiler if we can get 20 people interested. This piece will be made in the US and will take about 6 weeks once we have a confirmed group interested. I dont have any other details at this time but lets get a group of 20 that want to see this happen.

Attached pics are of the item I am looking to copy not of the actual part we will get.

I just stumbled in here and saw this thread.

Papethova, here's a suggestion for you: You should post this on m3post and see if people on that forum wouldn't be interested in getting a similar lip for their M3s. Since the E90, E92, and E93 all share the same front end, you'll have a much larger pool of interested buyers to work from. Granted the lip would have to be a different size than the one being made for the 1M, but it would still be cheaper for the vendor to add an extra batch of lips to this order than not.

My understanding is the piece is not interchangeable between the 1 and 3 series so it would require its own set of tooling. I can work something out for the 3 series crowd but their numbers will not help us 1ers.

Lets see how it turns out and I can do the same for the 3 crowd.

Yes, the sizes would be different. But a limited run of 1M lips and a much larger run of M3 lips would be cheaper for the manufacturer than just a limited run of 1M lips.

Unfortunately this would be false. All Carbon Fiber products have a set investment cost to make. If they make a second lip for a car that means they have to make a brand new prototype (2-4k), brand new mold(3-5k). This is why they are asking for a 20 person deposit to make this lip. There would be no benefit or a cheaper price for the 1M folks by asking a company to make a 2nd lip for a different car. There would be a benefit for the M3 folks yes but not the 1M guys.

Seeing as how I'm not a 1M owner, you can see the upside for me

Looks like we are prototyping and producing the piece without the deposit. I hope everyone who signed up sticks to it and purchases a piece once production begins.

Dont worry I am in the works for a 3 series piece for you guys too. Since you are involved in the 3 community maybe you can start the thread over there.

Lol, was wondering when you would let the cat out of the bag. I can vouch that a car went into prototyping this weekend for the lip, since I was down there to pickup my hood.

Yeah I'll probably have to go down this week or next for some adjustments and I'll take my DSLR just in case. If there is anything worth taking pics of I will grab some for you 1M's.
