Based on my photoshops of items to scale.

e87 M-Sport bumper side splitters are 1.5-2inches too long(I am modifying my dirt cheap fiberglass replicas to fit)

e87 non Msport lips like the Hartage & Kerscher e87 Splitter will work. The proof is with LCI e87 (almost a 128i style bumper) using the Hartage lip. Fit isnt perfect but it works.

AC-S has a lip for the 128i bumper

ebay has a e87 LCI specific lip from poland as well as hartage replicas

ebay has 128i lips that no one has tried, they are the same style as ebay 135i lips and if work, would be the best choice or cost & look
