Pre-facelift front lip

Is there a front lip for a pre-facelift coupe? I'm not really interested in getting a whole new front bumper (ie. MTech)... so expensive & not easily 'un-doable'.

If there's a nice aftermarket lip available I'd much prefer to get that. Anyone?

ACS-style splitter for the coupes look nice. Hartge is aggressive, but pricey at 470.

Thanks guys... I must admit I'm not a fan of either of the two lips suggested. Maybe I'll have to bite the bullet and get an M3 bumper.

Yeah, but if I want to sell the car as OEM (aka no mods) then a lip is much more logical, is it not?

how soon are you planning on selling the car? if you're planning on keeping it for a while, then get a bumper. if you're planning on selling it soon, keep it stock. lips look lame on the stock bumper, imo. also keep in mind, if you have a garage, or something like that, you can get a new front bumper, and store your stock one.

yeah, just keep your stock bumper and then put it back on whenever you sell it

I guess that's not a horrible idea. Thank you for talking some sense into me, gentlemen.
