ABS or fiberglass front lip

I really am digging the way the front lips look on the M-Sport bumper, but I do not have anything CF on my car and do not think it would look as nice as one that was painted body color. Does anyone make a lip like the Slek one in ABS or such that can be painted, it seems such a waste to paint over CF. I tried searching, but nothing. Thanks, Derek

There are no main stream lips in ABS except maybe some crappy ebay ones. ABS tooling is much more expensive than carbon fiber tooling and molding so no one makes them especially not for our smaller 1 series market.

A carbon fiber front lip with nothing else carbon fiber will look fine. You can also get someone to do a photoshop for you and see if you would like it body color. But I personally would just go with a carbon fiber front lip then a carbon fiber diffuser for the rear and the car will look great.
