If that's the case i totally agree

The post (and other members posts) read that the pictured was really the same sized spoiler 3 times, when its really 3 different.Rly.sized spoilers.shown...

nd M1, I'm going to say that if you ourchased tbe smallest lip which only.covers the middle of the bumper, that the alpha fangs should fit! But dont take my.word.for.it

Interesting idea. Even if the smallest one fits together with the "fangs" I am not sure if they will look better or worse, need to see this done or rendered to decide.

Arrow Lip photos...

Some close up pics of this front lip - a different design though - on the Safety Car. Photos were taken at the Hockenheim Tuner Grand Prix...

If you look at each piece, you can see VERY obvious differences between the shape and size between the back edges of each.

To top it off, lets even go simpler.... Use the tiles and grout lines for reverence. You can clearly and easily notice that the top piece does not extend out as far as the others. Those are definitely 3 different sized front lips



Having said that.... They look like they were designed (at least the ones pictured) so that the top one would only cover the middle of the bumper, while the larger bottom one goes all the way out to the side air scoops of the bumper!
You are right! On the picture with the three lips in line, there is the last one (nearest my 1M) one of the first lips we made. There is a "nose" at every end - but this we don't sell, because fitted under the Car, it looks not so nice as I wanted that. The two lips in Front have the same size and this is the size we sell only !
If the lip can be fitted with the Alpha-N-Flaps, I can't say, but I will check that with Alex from Alpha-N and will tell it here ! Also I toke a photo of the lip today and will post it here, there you can see the "long-holes" to fit at the bumper - I think than everybody knows what I mean.

So I wasn't imagining there being a difference in size, even shape of the first and last just going by the sides....

Anyway's I am liking what Lightweight has to offer, it is exactly what I have been waiting for, practical and simplistic, just like the motogp safety car that had my interest from the start....

I think their splitters will suit your car perfectly!

Do you have any pictures to show how to install the lip? You mention 10 screws, but I only see 4 slots.

We have a detailed, pictured installation guide for the Installation - I only have to translate everything from German in english spoken The Installation guide is in the transport box of the lip, also the screws and everything you need ! 4 Slots with 2 screws in one slot = 8 Screws. And two screws at the end of the lip, fitted in original fittings from the bumper = alltogether 10 screws

This sounds very sturdy. Using some of the factory mount holes will also help with aligning it properly.

Any eta on closing of the GB, delivery, etc?

Likewise, need to see it. I think they'll look OK with the Alpha-N fangs if they are in recessed a bit (one of several settings it seems) and in gloss black finish (assuming the fangs are in lacquered CF), that way it'll also match the IND/BMW Performance black gloss kidney grills.

I'm really liking this lip.
Consider me in for the GB.
Is the Lighweight logo a removable sticker?
