Front Splitter for G20

Hi, I have been looking everywhere online for a G20 front splitter but itís been almost half a year since Iíve had the vehicle and still to this day I cannot find a aftermarket front splitter. I know BMW has them but I am not trying to pay over 1K on just a front splitter.

Has anyone purchased a front splitter for this car or seen any aftermarket splitters for this vehicle?

Thanks for the response. The M Perf one doesnít come with the carbon splitters that make it look complete, and those are $450 for each of the sides, and together it is around $1800 just for the front splitter set. Thatís a lot of money on a piece of plastic that getís easily scraped since it sticks so low to the ground because of how low the vehicle is. Thatís why Iím looking for cheaper aftermarket parts, ones that are quality but at a lower price.

You can get it for 520Ä from Leebmann - they usually do not ship overseas but you can may be negotiate the shipment with them

There is now a end.cc front lip available and it looks amazing, much better than the M Perf one imo.

definitly nicer , makes the job of the M performance front splitter plus the winglets . What I like in the M front splitter is that it brings more agressive look not at the expense of having a car you can drive only on flat surface. With the M splitter installed I have only 1cm gap left when I enter in my garage . Don't want to be slave of too low or agressive front lip

can you post a pic of it?

have you lowered yours at all? Im considering a front spoiler though its a daily driver and i dont want the front spoiler to be too much of a hazard.

I had in mind to lower it like my former F30 with ACS springs that are not too agressive - about - 20 mm. But now with the lip in place I will not do it because I'm sure I won't be able to access many places I use to go without putting the lip at risk.
I've attached a pic take in my garage - not very nice because of the light - I will send others from outside later on .

By the way , I've installed it by myself and added few extra metal pieces underneath to get better rigidity of the assembly.

Did you have to drill any holes into the bumper or were they already there? Does the splitter come with double sided tape?

The lip is delivered without double side tape and is supposed to be fixed with special glue. In fact you get 3 pieces , the main one is the lip the others are soft platic extensions that will support the lip on the sides and close the gaps created between the bumper and the new lip .
Personnally I hate using glue so I've added double side adhesive tape , in the center part of the lip I've used double side tape and drilled holes in the bumper (did not trust the tape enough) - you should make 4 small holes - screws are included in parcel) - the screw in place to maintain the bumper are not properly located to be used for the lip.
As already said I've added also underneath un certain number of metal stripes to make the assembly more rigid - I'm close to german highway and the pressure on the lip at high speed should be quite high.
