What is this part on the bumper???

Hi. Does anyone happen to know what the blackout sections are on the bottom of this bumper? I am after a similar thing for my 135i and I have no idea what its called or where to source it.

I don't believe it is called a splitter or lip because those seem to be usually a big single

piece spanning right across the front bumper at the lip section. This is a two-piece part. Any ideas guys?

Those look like CF splitters, however I couldn't tell you the name. You might have better luck asking on the 3series forum.

A lip is one piece spanning from end to end of the bumper. A splitter is a lip split in to two. Hence the name.
