Kerscher 1M Front Lip

Can I get some opinions on owners as to their thoughts on the aesthetics of this particular product?

I think less is better when it comes to these lips. This one seems overkill IMO.

I'm biased, but...

If the lip is flat and doesn't interface with the curves of the bumper, I don't think it looks good when it's front edge is carved that way. IF you are going to try to save money and not go the CF Revosport route, I would just stick with the LightWeight. Looks good, is really sturdy, and keeps me from scraping my baby's nose on the ground.

I actually prefer the look of this to the lightweight one but my car is too low to have it

By far the worst I have seen. Too big, doesn't match the design of the front end, you name it. Indeed, is it even designed for 1M? Hard to believe.

Anything that looks like the lightweight but reaches all the way to the wheel well (ends of the front fascia)??

I agree looks more like a Motorsport splitter and I actually think it follows the lines of the bumper, I don't get what you other guys dislike about it but if everyone liked the same things it would be a boring world!
