ARKYM Aerorace Full PWC Replacement Front Bumper Installed Pics!!!!

What's up fellas, FINALLY here's fully installed and painted pics of the new ARKYM Aerorace full PWC replacement front bumper on my black sapphire metallic 135i! What do you think? I love the the aggressiveness of it and the integrated lip, really transforms the front end. Bumper was painted and installed at The Shop Automotive Center in Culver City, CA, you can pick yours up from PYSpeed here http://www.pyspeed.com/ARKYM-BMW-Ful...ffbpwc-e8x.htm

I am excited to see this, but I've got to be honest I don't like it. Lip is way too large and awkward. Especially for $1100. Not meaning to crap at all, stoked you like it and your car looks great overall.

I'm kind of leaning with Grayson. I wish they would have used a skinnier front lip like the SLeK / Revozsport style instead of a thick one.

Agreed. I think if the lip was a consistent width across the bottom it would be 100x's better. The width of the center part is perfect, the fangs on either end are the parts that don't fit at all.

Looks dope. Lets get some photos a bit further away. I would like to see how the bumper works with the car as a whole. Fitment looks great. Thank you for being the first.

I like it and I give props for originality. It is really aggressive, but a little "chunky" compared to the rest of the car. I'm also not so sure that it will hold up well with a lowered car. I dare you to show us pics of the bottom of it in a few months

Looks great, fitment looks spot on, but, I saw a photo of the tow hook cover in your living room - where is the tow hook cover?

$1100 retail unpainted. Group/intro pricing was like $950 unpainted.

I dunno, looks incredibly aggressive compared to the rest of the car's body. It doesn't flow very well. I'm interested in how it looks in pictures from a little further away.

Props for taking the plunge and installing this, def. the first fitted one i've seen. I'm not sure if I like the lip, like others have said it's pretty substantial...but the rest of the bumper is sweet.
