Needing recommendation on front splitter!

Just got my M340i a week ago. The front looks a little empty so i thought of going to install a front splitter. However, the OEM cost almost 2k between the gloss black splitter and the carbon attachments under it. If anyone has gone with an aftermarket one, please let give me some recommendation as well as how is your experience with fitments and carbon fiber quality. That would help a lot. I appreciate it.

Does I need to be carbon??

I've fitted the side skirts and rear diffuser from this company - the splitter I got from elsewhere on eBay.

The Xenonz stuff fits extremely well and you'd never know it was aftermarket. The beauty is the price. Only 20% of the OEM prices!!!

Is it a G20? F30? If the G20 I got mine from this place. But I live in Hong Kong so I don't know about postage to your area

I've heard/read good things about this one. So much so that I already placed my order for my yet to be built M340i that just received it's Production Number.

Love mine. Cheap, excellent fit, already painted gloss black, aggressive enough to stand out without looking like a snow plough.

Just ended up buying this splitter. I'm hoping not to have to drill any new holes and hopefully fits to existing holes/screws.

After a plethora of dings, dents and scratches mysteriously appearing on practically ANY car I've ever gotten for my wife, and her response *always* being what you quoted above, I made the easy decision to ban her from the driver's seat of the M340i...there's only so much a guy can take . I feel your pain, sir.

I actually like this one, but I watched a YouTube video where they say the holes dont line up with the stock bumper holes which makes no sense to me. Double-sided tape isn't enough for me to feel comfortable and I have to drill new holes to accomodate?!

That's the case with many lips for many cars (not the part about the holes not lining up). You typically have to drill holes if you want extra security aside from the double-sided tape. It's really not a big deal. Just go with a tiny drill bit, and then use slightly bigger self-tapping screws and you'll be good to go.

Mine actually just came in. Now the wait for the car...

Yeah you need to contact them directly. There's a banner on their website mentioning the checkout issues. Message them on Instagram or Facebook and they can send you an invoice.
