Replica 1M Bumper Arrived - Need advice!

Greetings,
My 1M bumper arrived a couple days ago and I am VERY excited to get it painted ASAP!

Bumper ordered:
http://www.**********s.com/1m-replica-front-bumper.htm

Fitment seems really good right out of the box!





QUESTION:
Does anyone know a carbon lip that is made for the replica bumpers??? I would think that a standard 1M lip would be to wide but perhaps a flat one could be made to fit?

I've been wondering the same thing as I just ordered mine. An alternative could probably be the Reiger lip... But it's not CF and I would also prefer that.

This is the EBAY one that I am thinking about getting for $200...



Being flat on the top and bottom makes me "think" that I could make it work.
Hope that someone else has already found/made a solution though...

Would it be too wide if it was for a real 1M though?

Rieger Tuning makes one for their replica 1M bumper as shown here:



http://www.esetuning.com/Rieger-Fron...88-p/99130.htm

I'm not sure if it will work on the mod_bargains one though.

Also, how much lower does your rep hang than than OEM?

Yeah, my PT was my very first car that I truly started modding. Full air setup, Hahn Stage II Turbo, Full fiberglass interior (self built), and just about everything you can do to one of them... Car is worth $5.25... LMAO

But I am getting ready to start work on a 400 + whp motor build on it in the next few weeks.



I can post up more pics if anyone cares to see them.

That might be the ticket man!!!
It is just about the same height as my current bumper with the lip installed.

Real nice bumper, but imo it's just too heavy a look for the stock 135 body

The closest you're going to get is the Reiger bumper. Others have drilled holes for theirs. I plan on eliminating mine. Looks cleaner without them anyways.

Thanks man! I plan to leave the hood and other carbon pieces exposed. I feel that it works with the Sedona red well.

It is the Seibon hood and I am very happy with the fitment. I had the Vorsteiner one on my E92 and that was just a few notches above but for the cost the Seibon is great.

I coded my washers out some time ago so this works out great for me.
