Thanks. I wanted to use plasti-dip first to see if I liked it. That way if I didn't I could just peel it off. When it gets nicer out I'm going to plasti-dip my window trim. That sh!t is killing me.

Yeah, lip is fixed. Was fixed within a week of my filing the claim. Took about 2 days for the parts to come in. Used OEM BMW parts, and about 4 days to install. I'm happy with it. They did a nice job.
