There are a few from europe, but they are for e87. Not sure if fitment is exact.

look up the 128i lip on ebay, i think its most hassle free solution for 200$ no paint needed. It is the alot like the 135i ebay lip, it actualy mimics Hamann or hartage 135i lip

other alternatives are the Hamann replicas in CF or plastic on ebay for e87, e87 LCI( 2008+) fitment is liek e87 LCI and has a few defects right under the fog light areas

other e87 things needs modification and not perfect fit.

hm may have to just dive in and order that one.. it's not even expensive really. i'm curious if it comes in black, and if its only held on with tape. suppose i'll send him a question on ebay.

that's a nice looking 128i
We need more people to post their 128i pics. Its amazing how a drop changes its appearance with stock bumpers.

just got my 128i back after 2 weeks as it was in repair. I missed it so much and its a lot better then the hyundai accent I was given, although that car was not that bad!

found this online.. only $168, I wonder what part is the lip, the entire front is different

it is a section that replaces the lower part of the e87 front. The e87 bumper I think is in 2 pieces
