Alpha-n splitter

Joe - hard to tell if these are any lower or not than the "snout". Side on the splitter looks in line, but front on it's hard to tell if it's lower or just effect of a 2D photo. Look damn good against VO, tho'

Yeh, I had a close look at these splitters after we spoke on Sunday..

If you follow the line at the peak of the splitter, it seems to be lower than the added MotoGp lip..

I think its a no go for me unfortunetly.

Not a fan of those splitters or any splitter on a 135 or 1M. Looks good from the side angle but not front on.

+1... doesn't suit the 1 series IMO. Stock is best.

imho, leave it oem or off. It looks odd with black ///M.

It looks better on AW and BSM.

Take a photo from the same angle showing the complete car from behind. I think the smaller pics aren't that great quality which makes it look better with it off.

It does look very clean without the M.

Should you decide you don't want it ... consider it sold!

Thanks for the feedback...
I don't think that there is any question that the 1M is an M car, so badge isn't required....looks way cleaner without. The chrome looks bad, but the black badge draws even more attention to the badge.

I will go against the trend and say the black ///M badge looks the part. Leave it on.
